HubNuggets House of Wax

Updated on November 25, 2010

Hallowe'en Theme

It's mid October and Halloween is fast approaching. The devil and spooky movie lover in me really wanted to call this week's hub the HubNuggets of Horror in honour of the occasion but figured that would cast a less than favourable light upon our hard working Wannabes. We just can't have that! So, HubNuggets House of Wax, it is.

With any luck at all, this week's contestants will be as immortalized as any of the wax figures in Madame Tussauds. You can help make that happen. Just read the entries that have been chosen for this week's HubNuggets contest. Once you're done, come back to this hub and vote for your favourite. Sorry, only one vote per customer.

Enjoy and Happy Hallowe'en.

      Thanks for voting and for all of your nice comments, everyone!

      Carmen, thank-you for the compliment, yours is pretty wonderful, too. :) A friend of mine once compared my smile to Ronald MacDonald's. I don't see the resemblance, he wears a lot more lipstick than I do.

      The coat rack angle is a bonus, Frieda. I hadn't thought of that, very practical!

      Zsuzsy, you changed your avatar, very nice pic!

      Absolutely, Patty. If you hold really, really still and don't blink, you may even get a free flight or ride in the back of a hearse over the border. Don't forget to hop out in time! I think an embroidered lining would be a beautiful touch.

      Shirley, Do you think that coffin lining will hold up my passing over international borders? I could embroider it.

      Okee dokee. My vote is in! Wonderful roundup. (And I can't picture the butler without those antlers, you're so right about that. Makes a great coatrack. At his age, I suppose that's helpful, you know, so he has less trips to make to the coat closet, lol). Thanks so much Shirley.

      Thanks for supporting our newbies by voting, HT!

      Frieda, thanks! It never is an easy choice, is it? You can see the resemblance between BT and the butler, can't you? Imagine antlers on his head.

      You're welcome, Robert. Yes, I know the rest of that saying. :) Good luck, don't forget to blog/tweet/stumble/facebook/email/snail mail/carrier pigeon/anything you can thing of to promote voting for your hub.

      Thanks, BT. Honestly, the photographer just took a bad shot. Your fur is actually more a distinguished salt and pepper. Does that help?

      Hi, Patty! I'm glad you like your photo. It'll look great in your passport, especially with that coffin lining in the background. :) Thanks for voting!

      I have voted and simply love my secret photograph. I may have to start using it on my passport. You are certianly one for capturing the essence, Shirley.

      Congratulations to all the Wannabes this week!

      This hub looks excellent Shirley! Got a couple more to read and I'll be back to vote. So far, this is not an easy choice. (By the way, I always suspected BT was the butler... and you know what they say about a crime and the butler...)
