It turns out that Martha Stewart is a huge fan of Halloween and has invited internationally-renowned “airigamist” Larry Moss and his Balloon Manor to appear live on her show.

Moss and his team of “airigamists” will erect “Martha’s Craft Corner” here at the Mall at Greece Ridge and then he and San Francisco’s Brian Asman will drive it to NYC in a van.  There on the Martha Stewart set, they’ll be joined by NYC artists Rich Rivera and Joel Klein to populate it with frightfully funny balloon monsters in time for the next morning’s airing of the Martha Stewart Show.
