Thread: Plans for 2017

    Default Plans for 2017

    So what are your plans for next Halloween? Any major projects, theme changes, improvements? Not all of us are necessarily at that point yet, and if not, when are you hoping to start your planning and projects?

    Unlike last year, this year I've focused on other things since Halloween. We have a puppy, 11 weeks old now, so if I don't want pee around, I better pay attention to her and not get wrapped up in projects! This coming year will not be as impressive as last year when I put in a lot of work throughout the whole year (I focus on costumes and indoor decor for our party). Hope not to disappoint too much, but with the pup and all, I just can't paper mache like I did before.

    Soooo, we may go for Vampire theme. Less home made stuff, and I will be buying some of the costumes too. We'll see, kids seem to want me to keep the tradition of making them theirs, so may still be a change in plans. I did load up on some gargoyles post Halloween though, so tempted to stick with it!

    Tape Ghost Successor for 2017!

    I have to redo parts of my monster since he had a hard time outside. After the ghost that's my next project. He needs a new stand, and a new face.

    I have that horse skeleton which I want to make into a Thestral, that's a big project though and will have to wait till February or later if I even get to it this year.

    I want to get some palletes and make a coffin. I need it in my graveyard badly but it needs to be made well enough to also be used as storage off season.

    Were changing up the first room of our haunted house to an alien scene. The Distortions Unlimited alien death prop will be our center piece and we will be working on the detail pieces throughout the year. Other than that we will be adding a fašade in the drive right before the haunt entrance, which will be a field of terror type set up.

    I want to do Nightmare before Christmas in our grave yard this year!! So far it has mostly just been a grave yard with no other theme, I got the life size jack and sally's this year, so hoping to make an oogie boogie and some other characters etc Will take inspiration from the movie and from the Haunted Mansion Holiday Ride (when it's nightmare before xmas theme). Should be a lot of fun!!

    I can't decide if I want to mostly keep the same genre for our party this year - it was just general spooky/haunted theme, or do something more specific. This was our first big halloween party, so we did spend a lot on decor and made a lot of things also. I don't think I can do to that extent next year.
    What do you think guests' perception is of parties that set up is generally the same each year?

    One thing I would love to do differently, is incorporate more outdoor aspects to party, but I also don't want to risk weather - LOVE idea of a haunted carnival theme, but really don't think it would as awesome indoors if weather did not cooperate...

    I plan on doing a Sci Fi theme next year. Should be Aweomesauce when everything is done. Gonna hit up Unit 70, and either Nevermore productions or Dead house designs for my panels and props. I'm also making some additional in house props when time allows. Can't wait!

    My plans for 2017 will be the same theme. Giant Spiders and the 40 foot spider web. Im going to build another big spider which is 90%
    done now and some lanterns that go up the side walk to my yard. I do need to get a good fogger. Im tired of these 400 watt junk boxes LOL.
    I built tons of props this past year so I don't have alot to do for this coming Halloween. Raising a puppy is fun. I did that with a French Bulldog
    female who is 3 now. Love her to death, she is my best friend. We got her at 3 months old.
