    OK The final photo shoot did not wind up very glamorous. Looks pretty much the same as the outdoor photo I snapped quickly yesterday. LOL Nevertheless, here she? he?... it is!

    Thanks so much! As mentioned, we had a lot of fun planning the carnevil theme and we drew from what others and done as well. The witches are just on hiatus and will make a comeback in the next couple years! This year's theme is going to be awesomely creepy and the details will rival those of last year. Stay tuned!

    Saki, it is a 6' roll of thin corrugated cardboard my friend at a box company gave me. He thought the cryo chamber would look better as a circle than using a cardboard box but time will tell. My weekend project is a three layer paint job. Not sure if it will crumple from the weight. If so, then it's going to stay as plain cardboard with a color light on it. I certainly have enough to make mistakes. This thing is huge!

    Thanks! Wow, I thought this thread was dead and buried lol! Went back and read through it again and it was fun to remember all the little details of last year's set up. Yeah, the kissing booth was a blast. The actor really got into his role and interacted with the guests while they were waiting in line. Lots of fun! We're busy with this year's theme now and have started the mock build in our secret warehouse!. A much darker and more sinister theme for this year!

    Sorry I'm behind on updates. Thanks everyone for the encouragement. I haven't framed the portraits yet, Celipops. I was figuring out my plan first. I will be posting more very soon as we have decided to go ahead and start decorating inside NOW! Work on it and put it up as it were. Haha. For now I will share my latest find. The dress for my haunted bride! $10 at a new Goodwill grand opening today. They actually had a huge section set up for decor and items good for costumes. They hacked...

    I got some from Walmart the other day. Had no idea they existed. Amazing! Will definitely be getting more before the end of the season.

    Spats, this is so helpful! I tried really hard not to raise my hopes up this year with doing stuff, but I am always at least a little more enthusiastic in planning than I should be. This year, there's not just a small budget, but also little time - so I can neither make fantastic things like I'd like to, nor go out and buy the things that match what I want. I am a crafter, and it is mind boggling to me to be going weeks without doing any crafting. Never experienced that before. And no matter...

    Thanks for taking a look! I haven't settled on a single host just yet, so I just download them in batch an upload them as necessary. Just have never had that error appear here.

    If you go with a witch theme, you can also incorporate nature elements, which just involves going out into nature somewhere and finding stuff. For example, you can get twigs & thin branches, break them into pieces, then hot glue them or otherwise attach them together to make altars or cages for tiny imprisoned magical creatures. You could also pick up small cages that are meant to be candleholders, glue some moss to the bottom, then display something inside. Same for glass containers. If...

    Thanks.

    I started 2016 in July.

    Got 30 new blank stones painted, waiting for the epitaphs to be selected and written.
    30 New crosses painted, waiting to be assembled.
    Made a cemetary sign, hanging with chains...

    Trying to narrow the new ones down from roughly 600 notes I have, trying to make the best puns...

    Hoping to post 2016 pics before Oct 31 this year instead of waiting til next august.

    Still have to pull down the old stones, and decide which ones get painted over, and which ones need to be touched up.

    got 3 new gargoyles... oh, and gotta work on the lighting again...

    Hoping to add 2 or 3 scary scarecrows, Looking for more free scrapwood.

    You did a great job with "eyeing it up"!
    Knowing the name comes from a combination of the facts that I love tropical fruit, and that I happen to have a houseplant that produces a smaller version of those-- a little smaller than a ping-pong ball.

    I'm so behind!!! First the vacation, then we foolishly started a project for the non-Halloween portion of our life. (What?!?! Non-Halloween isn't allowed within 18mos of October!!! Haha) Of course Murphys Law was in effect so it's still only 95% done. But we should be finishing in the next couple days and it was adding a pool. So on the upside, have a pool to swim in to cool off while working on Halloween in this HEAT will be good.
    Wish me luck. I may make myself crazy(ier) trying to get my list done.

    Just recently saw a carousel horse version of the packing tape ghost. Something for you to consider if you want to add more.
