    It probably IS just a matter of the photos being large as WitchKitty said. I believe there's software on the server that resizes the photos and it can get bogged down if too large. And I think the bigger the photos, the longer it can take. I did a tutorial for uploading photos from the computer a while back, because there are a couple "gotchas" that tripped me up initially. http://www.halloweenforum.com/general-halloween/137823-uploading-photos-new-members-screenshots.html I should probably...

    Large hula hoops? Maybe 3-4 of them. I have some from the dollar tree that are at least 3 foot rounds, but possibly 4 foot diameter... Cut and then tape together combine together with duct tape to create a stable frame, and then use cardboard strips (also attached with duct tape) to make thin support ribs and then maché over the entire structure. That's what I'd try anyway.

    It's been Ok. No huge wins but nothing awful either. Picked up a wee bit of freelance work this week so that's a plus. Probably get going on Halloween stuff in the next week or so. Hoorah! My wife has her niece and nephew coming - I probably mentioned that before - so she's got an extra dog in the race this year, so that could make things interesting. I should probably buy a lottery ticket. We're overdue. ;)

    I thought this was funny. It's the Haunted Horror Pre-code Coloring book! It doesn't come out until November apparently so you won't be able to use it to de-stress this Halloween. :( But might make a perfect stocking stuffer for your favourite haunter. :) http://www.previewsworld.com/Home/1/1/71/916?stockItemID=SEP150490

    Oh this is SOOO good to see! You UK folks have been getting by with scraps for far too long! At this rate it won't be long before you're jaded and complaining that there's too much poorly made, over-priced crap, like a real American Halloween. ;) I love the Night Owl Inn sign. (Hopefully you totally missed out on the Halloween "glitter-on-everything" phase.) It'd be great if they eventually start making some items exclusively for the UK. I know Halloween is just on the upswing there...

    Check this thread for various solutions. http://www.halloweenforum.com/tutorials-and-step-by-step/117303-tombstones-flying-away-solution.html We build our own so we do the bit where we sandwich some PVC tube (electrical conduit I think) between the two slices of foam and then slide that over rebar posted into the ground. Has the added benefit of making the tombstones a bit thicker and adding something solid down the centre to prevent snapping. Really happy with the way this works - we...

    Yup on the Angels. Also agreed on the Silence - freaky as heck, although...it seems like their story was kind of spread over seasons so I don't know what I'd pick. I did really love the "Hide" episode from season 7. Seemed like a proper Haunted House story set in the 1970s (although it didn't end that way). Featured Doughy Scott and Jessica Raine as kind of paranormal investigators. Loved the characters - would have watched a series with them. Doctor Who has a habit of coming up with...

    I have no clue how long you can store pumpkins for. Pretty sure if it's got any kind of scratches or blemishes it's not long. I'm sure there was a thread about it here though.

    Hi Marie, just catching up with everyone, it looks like you've been busy at other things. Hope all is well and that your halloween plans for this year are going ok! All the best!

    Happy New Year Marie! I have now posted my 2011 pics. I was disappointed that I didn't remember to take night shots, so there are only daytime shots. I have also started an album of wrought iron and graveyards. I started this when I was searching for wrought iron designs for my Gothic Garden, so a new little hobby was born! I will post my garden sometime too. All the best for 2012.

    Hi Marie, I hope your halloween went well. I have blogged my walkthru, no pictures yet, working on that. It went well, we made our Creepy Carnival interactive for the kiddies. You have to play games at a carnival. Big kids asked...."Is there clowns inside?" insert evil laugh here!

    Love all your cemetary pics. My kids tease me about all of the cemetaries they were drug through on family vacations. As a result they have threatend to burry me in one of the newer genneric cemetaries. You know the ones with flush ground momuments, topped with bunches plastic flowers. I told them I would haunt them forever if they did that!!!

    Hi, Marie!

    How are your plans coming along for this year?

    We're starting to feel the crunch as the clock ticks down, but hopefully it will all come together (or at least some of it!)

    Hi Marie! Just an update on the anniversary stays. So far, no haunted hotel nights. Haven't booked any - out of our budget right now. Something to save for though. Thanks for the suggestions, have written them in my Halloween Idea book!

    Thank you so much for your comment. Compared to other people's haunts and talents I was not feeling as confident about what we put together. Thank you again!

    Thanks so much Marie for the kind words and the friending. Our display has a long way to go but it gets a little bit better each year. The skeletons are the one big yard project my wife has each year. She sets 'em up and decides what they'll be doing. (I think she said they'll be playing The Game of Life this year!)

    Shoppers used to be great for Halloween. I picked up some really nice univerrsal monster masks there on clearance. They had the skeletons for 3 or 4 years and then switched them out for another big impressive item (Giant skulls, I think?) Not much there last year though.

    I'd live to see a night shot of the ghosts in action. I'm sure they look amazing. And as for the riser, he is perfect. I guess old Halloween props never die (because they're already dead?)

    Thanks again!
