    Oh my gosh! I LOVE the pictures!! How cool! My hubby thinks I'm crazy when I make him pull over to look at abandoned or hidden cemeteries! I love reading all the stones and putting a story together in my head! I could wander around for hours! lol Thank you SO much for sharing these with me!! I hope you had a nice Halloween!!

    Ah, I think I've gotten pneumonia a couple times after sweeping out the garage after long periods of time. I wonder if it was a similar catalyst?

    Yeah, we got snow the day after Halloween again...nothing horrible this year. But we've had it off and on for the last couple weeks. Should all melt away tomorrow and then be back a couple days later. How about you?

    Hello there! Thanks for stopping by!

    I actually had to take this year off from building also, although we did have a nice Halloween otherwise. But yeah, some job transition stuff sucking up time. Hopefully I will be able to set up the scene I was picturing for next year. And definitely looking forward to seeing yours then too! There were some terrific haunts out there this year for sure - very inspiring.

    Just ran out of time this year and didn't really have the space for it anyway. But didn't want to have something that I might have to fiddle with all night with the in-laws visiting.

    I don't know why it's so expensive to ship up here. The bad thing is...one of the services...I think it's UPS...charges a brokerage fee which can be insane. I think I ordered a big box of stuff from Spider Hill - maybe it cost me $180? And then it cost something like $80 to ship and then I was hit with a brokerage fee that was something like $100. I can't remember exactly - and it's not Spider-Hill's fault.

    My wife years ago ordered a Snow White costume from the online Disney store and it was 75% off. But by the time the shipping, customs and brokerage fees were added in, it turned out to be more than the original price. It just sucks.

    Sorry to hear you had pneumonia. I had it last Christmas and it took me out for a loong time. As crappy as the timing is, it's probably quicker to recover before the weather gets cold.

    Glad hear you're back. We're already thinking about next year as well. Kinda bummed we didn't have much new stuff this year . So we're hoping to radically change things next year while putting in as little work as necessary. I find it tough to exclude the stuff that's working though.

    The werewolf, which I still love too, is probably 7 years old and hasn't changed at all in the last 4. He's just got a very awkwardly posed wood legs and then a PVC torso with joints from spider-hill prop works. It'd probably work best if he was 100% PVC but it's not cheap to ship the joints up here. But I DO think that having him in a pose that's a little tougher to accomplish makes a huge difference. Something I need to work on for next year.

    Hope to see you around here more this year.

    You peaked too soo. Can't imagine having to follow up a haunt like yours.

    it hasn't been a great year for us preparation-wise. Too many distractions. So we'll have to wait and see what the kids think.

    Hey Bam! Just saying "hi!" I know you were cutting back this year but hopefully you're still enjoying the season.

    Seems kinda quiet around here lately. I think a lot of regulars have decided to take a pass this year.

    Yup! Plus you could almost do it as a study for your haunt, at a fraction of the expense due to the scale.

    Dude, you got crazy skills, and you know it. Definitely an artist. I'm sure you could be a set designer if My wife has a friend who has been doing the "Haunted Dollhouse" thing on Facebook. I keep prodding her to join the forums because she's done an amazing job. I think that'd be another cool idea in regards to having a small project where you can still get creative. I'm almost wishing we'd done something like that because it's a little less restrictive than the village stuff.

    Well I can certainly see how last year could have been overwhelming for you! Just went back and took another look at your photos and it definitely looks like a fulltime job for 8 or 10 set designers. You really outdid yourself! I have no idea where you'd even go from there.

    Those villages can be deceptively time consuming. But nothing like a home haunt. And if you get in too deep it's a little easier to extricate yourself. Not quite as easy to just "stop" when you're vacuuforming walls.

    Nothing really new here. I think my wife's brother and his family are coming out for a visit at Halloween so we should probably add something new to the yard. Haven't given it a ton of thought yet though.
