    Think the only decision I've mostly put my foot down on for 2013 is no more buying animations from Spirit Halloween unless something Really catches my eye, sorry guys...the quality just isn't there.

    I agree Guy when I buy something I want it to last more than one year, I will say I bought the jumping spider this year and it scared a lot of people I am hoping it will work next year?

    There was, along with a couple of other buttons, until most of us complained about there being far too much going on and our heads hurting

    A grave yard is a great background and the were wolf could look like he is chained to a tombstone trying to get free

    I planned Halloween 2013 3 days after Halloween 2012.. it's never too early! The original idea was to finally do the schoolhouse theme that I have been dreaming of for years, but due to recent events, that idea will be scrapped. Originally the main basis of the story (full one was not complete) was that the school teacher had been practicing witchcraft in their lessons (as the townspeople had suspected, spreading the rumor through town), brainwashing the children. On Halloween Day, the children came to school in their trick or treat costumes.. only to ravage the town for brains instead of treats. I will alter the story (as I feel that it might not be appropriate to include a school) while still keeping the time period and witchcraft concept. I'm still trying to figure out a main story to work with, but I know I want to take on a "Salem witch trials" theme. For some strange reason, I am in love with the old school mid-western settlement/Little House on the Prairie/American Gothic time period and this fits very well. If anyone has any ideas on how I can create a story around a witch trials theme, please feel free to contribute! I know I want to create a main character, but I'm at the moment stuck on how to go about executing it.. I was thinking maybe plaster their image on "Wanted" posters and having their trial go horribly wrong and them getting their revenge on the townspeople..

    I did fall in love with the facade design I had for this theme, so I am keeping the same design and just switching the "schoolhouse" sign with a "town hall" one (studying images from this time period, these buildings could have actually looked very similar depending on the town or village!).



    I will have my usual cemetery setup on the lawn side of the yard, and on the other side create this witch trials setting. My plague body cart from this past Halloween will return, but with instead a banging toe pincher coffin being placed in it.



    I am also seriously looking into some stuff from Creepy Collection. I'd like to have some severed heads/torsos on stakes in front of my facade. It would be an investment, but their insanely detailed selection is too hard to ignore! Has anybody purchased from them? How was your experience? From their FaceBook and YouTube pages, they seem like they really work with the customers and have great service.

    I agree IowaGuy. To me Spirit sux. The only thing I will buy from them from now on will be the fog juice. They can't screw that up, could they ? Well from now on I think I've got the confidence to build my own props for the yard. This year I'm making the cloaked ghost along with a couple other things. Time to have some fun.
