    Oh my gosh, that looks delicious! I love how your oranges came out - very fierce looking. Is the second picture - I can't tell for sure - cheeseburgers with the cheese on top? Or biscuits with cheese?

    Can't go wrong with pretzels and chocolate, that's for sure.

    Well thank you kind Sir. Ended up being rushed so not quite a tpost. We had heavy rain and some wind all morning till just about TOTing time. With a paper mache coffin, we ended up with a few problems.

    Yeah, Beetlejuice is new this year. He was kinda the one thing I had in mind that would be new. But then my wife showed an interest in doing a coupe more tombstones so we focused on that. Wasn't sure that I'd get time to get to him, but he came together pretty quickly in the end. I busted the crank arm on the motor putting him away though, so I'll either have to change it out or do something different next yar.

    Mummy has been around forever, but we change the lighting up on him periodically. The arch still needs better lighting. My goal eventually is to do those skeleton arm light sconces but I've just never gotten to it.

    No plans to add Casper, but I've had a Slimer mask that I hoped to turn into a tombstone peeper or something. He may show up next year.

    Thanks for the nice words Bam. You know I think you haunt is pretty much perfect, and getting better every year so it means a lot.

    Thank you! Not sure which you are referring to..I think I have pics of 3 or 4 different ones on here. Super easy AND cheap to make-simply awesome lit up at night!!! Intellegirl made some really beautiful Victorian ones-check those out too.

    Thank you for stopping by!! I work on setup all the month of September. I really enjoy that time of year and love puttering each day. I really do try to aim for the official 'light up' the first weekend of October. Yes. Storage has gotten insane. We have a 13 by 35 foot storage unit for all the Halloween. We live in a small country town, so we don't get tons of traffic, but it's a nice steady drive by of families in cars the whole month, and somewhere around 140 ToTs. I've never really been able to keep a real count. People do stop by and walk around in the evenings. It's such a nice experience for us.
    Well, thanks again for checking us out. I'm honored.

    Well, TalkingCatBlues takes a lot of the credit for the animation. I really didn't understand her theme 100% until she started setting up - then I realized how brilliant it was. She did an amazing job. I'm glad the video worked OK for her. I hadn't done much flash animation in a while so it was a bit of a learning experience.

    Sorry to hear Halloween left you a little rundown. Hope the humbugs didn't hit until after the haunt. I appreciate you checking in though - I was getting a little worried.

    Don't feel like you need to rush back here. I'm kind of avoiding the place to a large degree until I get a better job. So if you need a break, I say you take it - it's definitely well-earned.

    Hey - uploaded the loop that Tom made to Vimeo so you can see the rest of it. It was so much fun listening to people react to it. Very cool.

    I haven't found a way to sort pictures in the albums, other than delete a whole bunch and reload them in the new order. I would love that function too, if it is possible to add.

    Thank you for looking at the pics! Yes, everything is supposed to be in varying stages of emerging from chalk to real-life.

    Cat in the window (and a whole bunch of other window things!) is an animated loop created by a mutual friend of ours, who would probably like me to emphasize that I *asked* him to draw it as if it were a kid's drawing. I tried loading the whole video loop onto Flickr after Halloween but so far Flickr hasn't let me do that in a playable format - I suspect it's too long for them, although they're not giving me a length/size limit in the FAQ. Maybe I will upload it to Vimeo so you can see the whole thing. It was a lot of fun - everyone loved it.

    I noticed them the other day but fooled myself into thinking they may have been a scene setter. 2 dimensional photos just don't do things justice.
    I am sure that with all the visuals in your display the realism of the walls is noticed subconsciously. If you were to remove them people would notice the change.
