This year I've created a couple of standard badges, as well as some extra special Vincent Price themed variants in further celebration of the Vincentennial (the horror icon would have turned 100 this past May!)

Bonjour! Shawn Robare...
I'm undecided about which badge Of actor Vincent Price that I may use as I make plan to participate in this year Countdown to Halloween...
...Either way, they all are quite spooky, eerie,[Remember I'm the "scary" horror blogger!] and very nice too!
Merci, for sharing!
deedee ;-D

April in Autumn said...

I don't run a Halloween blog, but I'd like to participate! If you're cool with a non-horror blog crashing the party, sign me up. I'm going to snag Vincent Price.

The Frog Queen said...

So sorry I missed this!!

Of course I will rectify that situation immediately and get a badge on the blog and website ASAP!

Glad to be along for the ride (again) would not miss it for the world!

Cheers!

Semetra Rhodes said...

The badges are all great!! The Vincent Prices badges are very, very cool.

I was lucky that his 100th birthday fell on a Friday! We had a blog special celebration for it!

It was tough to decide between the two Dr.s Death or Phibes, but in the end Dr. Phibes always wins!

Looking foward to it.

Eegah!! and Tabonga! said...

The Vinnie button rocks!! We'll be there again!!

Brian (Cool and Collected) said...

I'm going to give it a shot this year! Expect a lot of King Kong (he counts as Halloween-ish, right?).

I opted for the snazzy new Vincent Price badge.

Everyone up until this point has been added to the list of this year's Cryptkeepers. I'm equally excited to see all the returning participants as well as all the newcomers. I think this is going to be a great year for the Countdown.

Love the Vincent Price badges! Over at Limerwrecks I'm in the midst of a chronological Vincentennial tribute to Price and his filmography.

See you in October!

Karswell said...

Being from St Louis (Vincent Price's hometown) this was a no-brainer for me-- Happy Vincentennial to everyone, and here's to a Happy Halloween 2011 too!

My blog, blackwood, has participated for the past few years. I'm going to be ambitious and ask that my podcast be added as well - Cabinet Of Curiosities Podcast

Many thanks!

Andrew Barr said...

I think I'm going to join in on this this year. I plan on drawing 31 skulls throughout october to celebrate the season.

Steve Miller, Writer of Stuff said...

Looks like I'm a bit late, but I'm taking part again this year at "Terror Titans" and "Shades of Gray."

Between the two blogs, there will be at least one Halloween-themed post every day (the "Vampirella Countdown") but there will be two or three on most days.

(And I went with Vincent Price on "Terror Titans" and Peter Cushing on "Shades of Gray" because they matched the themes of the blogs. :)

Cool. I couldn't resist the Vincent Price one.

Mother Firefly said...

Count on me to be back this year as well.

J. D. Lockhart said...

We'll be putting up a new update every single day in October (sometimes a couple per day).

Also picked Vincent Price, because I believe that man has ruled this world as a stumbling, demented child king long enough.
