When I first saw the class list for the Mares in Black Spooktacular Photo Show, I knew I wanted to do some sort of funny play on words having to do with Johnny Cash, The Man in Black. I went through a lot of different ideas, all of which would take a lot of work, or a lot of new things to make work. I finally came up with the idea of a Mares in Black Event. In the future, I will be totally fine is the real Mares decide to steal my idea.
First I set up a room, or two walls of a room, with several taped together sheets of white cardstock. I also checked the size of my room with my phone camera and added a bit more "wall" on one side. I don't own enough tables for what I had in mind, so I faked a couple with some small boxes and tissues for tablecloths. So far so good.
