"TRICK OR TREAT!! Smell my feet!! Give me something good to eat!!" Well, that's what we used to say in the 90's when we ran around the neighborhood dressed as little monsters on the hunt for the houses with the best candy... XD. It's about that spooky time of the year again and I remember the days when I absolutely loved Halloween as a kid. Nowadays with the drudgery of adulthood, not as much (just kidding!). But, it really isn't the same of course as I'm not an eleven year old dressed as Scorpion from Mortal Kombat going from house to house yelling "GET OVER HERE!!!" as I point to the candy.
That being said, it doesn't mean we can't get into the spooky spirit of Halloween in the paracord world! As you can see from the picture above, we have several Halloween related paracord projects that have been done over the past couple of years. These include: a paracord skeleton, paracord Mummy, Skull Band paracord bracelet, and Evil Twins paracord bracelet, and paracord Jack O' Lantern. The picture above also links to a brief showcase video of those projects (If you're reading this on Monday after noon). I think the skeleton, mummy, and pumpkin would make some great party favors, additions to loot bags, and even handouts for really special Halloween Trick or Treaters... that is if you have the time to make a few dozen.
Although, when I was a kid, I had an unhealthy obsession with candy and finding anything other than sweet sugar filled goodies in my bag would be a bit of a disappointment...but hey, let's not let that deter us from getting the young ones into paracord. It's never too soon to start! Regardless of how/if you're celebrating Halloween, I just wanted to wish you all a safe and fun night on the 31st! Enjoy it as it's the last day before you start seeing Christmas stuff in the stores! All the best. -WOE
My name is Max. I my world is fire... and blood. We all know and love the Mad Max paracord bracelet design and it's back yet again with this Micro Mad Max idea! Mad Max: Fury Road was most definitely one of my favorite movies of 2015. The visual aesthetic was truly remarkable from dirty diesel and sand soaked environment that was bathed in the saturated hues of the post-apocalyptic wasteland. Aside from how awesome this movie was, it gave us the gift that Max Rockatansky wore a paracord bracelet. Not just a cobra knot bracelet, but one that was done in an adjustable fashion that we all know now. Also, as I understand it, Tom Hardy, who plays Max, personally wears paracord bracelets which lead me to believe that Max wearing a paracord bracelet was possibly a choice of Hardy himself... So cool! Anyhow, with this Micro Mad Max design, this is possibly the slimmest iteration of the Mad Max as we only use a single strand of 550 as the core and the adjustable closure is created using a variation of the Manny method of joining paracord.
