I first met Nikolai Diablo 9 yrs ago, when his sideshow troupe, Carnival Diablo, was part of Carnivale Lune Bleue. Many years later I discovered that the devil himself has moved into a nearby small town, where he passed this Halloween handing out radishes to unsuspecting and very dismayed kiddies :-)

Of course, I have become his friend; everyone has to have a good fiend. Quite literally born into the sideshow world, Scott McClelland is a 3rd generation magician and performer par excellence. And when he isn't out and about frightening the local populace and their offspring, he is a fascinating and charming chap to hang out with.

And if you live in Eastern Ontario....then an evening at www.diablomanor.com Diablo Manor is not to be missed!

He can also be found on social media platforms.

I'm not voting, but I think the texture overlay here is a bit extreme and nearly becomes part of the composition. Yes / No?

I wonder how many here know what Carnival Diablo is? Anyway, he could very well be a part of the Addams universe in more ways that one.
