My Halloween challenge

I did something quite daring today. I challenged myself – to put together a new webpage on something I’m not interested in  – in the least.

There was this quest on Squidoo – to make a new lens on Halloween costumes topic – and that’s just something that is way out of my interest. I’ve never even put together a holiday page, let alone one about the Halloween – which I was never a fan of.

I gave the challenge some thought – or rather – I was thinking about how to make this task fun in case I do decide to take it on. So I came up with the idea to make the new Halloween lens silent-films-era themed and did some research on the topic.
.
Since I knew the popular characters from these 1920’s comic movies, the rest was easy. I found some good images, a bunch of interesting or funny facts and finished the page in a few hours.

This really had nothing to do with the Halloween. It was more a question of making something that I didn’t like very much – enjoyable – with a decent result. And I did it. So, here it is:
