Well, here we are again, watching fall outside our windows, getting our projects all laid out for the months we're about to spend indoors - what better time for a challenge? And it's October, so we have a ready-made howl-iday there . Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to make a Monster Mash - more accurately, a monster mash-up. Let's see what mayhem the classic movie monsters - from the Universal icons like Dracula, Frankenstein's monster, the Wolfman, the Creature - to giants in their field like Godzilla or the Kraken - can create in the Trek universe. Is that a mummy stalking the darkened corridors? A starbase under attack from the crashing, crushing paws of an atomic-powered dinosaur? Or maybe a misunderstood monster has enlisted in Starfleet? Whether it's a drawing, a rendering, or even a really cool costume, it's a strange new Halloween. Enter as many pix as you like - but get them to the Monster Master (at ptrope at gmail dot com) before the witching hour of midnight (PDT) on Friday, October 31. See you scare!
