Are you still undecided what you’ll be for Halloween? Tune in to Make: Live’s Halloween Party tonight at 9pm ET / 6pm PT for a little inspiration. This show is PACKED with fun stuff! Designer, craftsperson, and Emmy award-winning puppeteer Anney Fresh will join us at the party to show and tell with her fantastic costumes and characters. We’ll also have members of local hackerspace NYC Resistor showing off their electrified, motorized, LED-adorned and otherwise hacked pumpkins. Becky will be sharing her “Tricks for Halloween Treats” and we’ll also have a costume parade. If that’s not enough, Becky and I will be opening the show by revealing our Halloween costumes with a tip of the hat to one of our favorite TV shows
