    So will somebody be offering a custom kit for the horse, just a few simple pieces of plastic to add horns, wings, more big teeth, maybe make the front legs human-like, or a kit to assemble two horses into one with two heads? so after every kid is afraid to walk near the new beast, the adults get a cheap laugh when it says, "Wilbur!" (Then they know it's just "Mister Ed" in his Halloween disguise! )

    My Ex was my "Ex" for just a few months when she went to see the first movie with her boyfriend. She later told me that the Creeper reminded her of me!? I told her:"Well! thanks A LOT! Now everybody will know I have those hidden wings!" "I mean the long hair, grey-colored," She said.

    Maybe about maybe six years ago i was 5 blocks away at my Dad's old garage (my garage now) working on the roof, a car pulls up, a man is all "smiles" as he gets out and said:"Your Wife told me how to find you, I"m from the West Coast I had to be in Wisconsin to sell a major retailer our company's product product, I only have a short time before I have to fly back, could you just maybe walk me through your house? (He also added that he is on The Halloween Forum, and has read many of my posts...

    Going to be closed on Wednesdays (slowest night of the week,usually) What's the big deal? I have been open almost every night for the last 29 years. (plus Sat. & Sun. afternoons.) We could still possibly accommodate a "Wednesday" for someone, sometimes if they called us a few days in advance. Last night we had one young man show up here, but he was a huge fan of all things scary and Halloween, and he could not say enough good things about this place! Then gave us a 5 out of 5 rating on...

    Wait, they are not aliens, they have our DNA. they say they are here to rescue as many of us as their saucers can accommodate. The world cheers! And proceeds to get in line, many people die in the process. A huge asteroid will smack the Earth with enough force to wobble it into the sun! "We all want to be saved!" "We are doing the best that we can, but we can not save all of you.' "Since we share the same DNA, we understand." The voyage through outer space is a very long one, most...

    A revelation, came. It happened like this:First we had 16 people in one family group. they had sent us a check two weeks ago to be here. t Then a second group arrived after the first group had left, another four people , then two more showed up, to be added to the second group and then see the first room last at the end of their tour. The second group of four were from this area, one woman who was here tonight for her second show asked me:"How many tours do you do a night?" I replied:"I...

    Looking very closely, i think i see your biggest secret. The one horse picture has a slight "Blur" to it, which means this is actually the real Reaper Grim and his horse! Nothing, absolutely Nothing, can ever beat the authentic item!

    I feel almost at "Home" looking at these pictures.Stimulating in some mildly disturbing, uncharted way... just what the October Doctor ordered! I do like the little details in almost every scene, it makes people want to stop and look, maybe distracting enough to then ... sneak up behind them easily!

    In this village I inhabit, I saw something here that was totally new to me . It was a truck with an ad on it advertising they would put up and take down your Christmas decorations for you! (Halloween decorations may have been included in the smaller lettering? ) This is a small "Town" (or maybe it's even just a Village?) 1,700 people live here, many elderly people and people who are here simply because the rent is low and the town is very quiet mostly. Corn fields boarder the town in every...

    I used a plastic model kit skull, "Painted" it with liquid Latex, then mixed up some Bondo car fender repair stuff, gooped it on thick, then because I had latexed the plastic skull the Bondo was removable, some Bondo mold sections had to be sawed apart, then i "painted the Bondo mold i made with Latex and put Bondo in for the product I was making using the Bondo mold, once again the latex kept the Bondos from Bonding with one another.

    They have been here before, but still very loudly swear (Like an old "Sailor"!) in front of the rest of their own Family! (And it was the Mother of the family!) She has been through Ravens Grin before, but you wouldn't know it from her reactions! She e-mailed me afterwards and said she really enjoyed it when I asked her little boy, "So have you been a good girl this week?" He had long hair, maybe 11 years old, squeaky little voice, hard for me to tell. I really thought he was a she, not...

    Masks can be fascinating and fun to own. My scariest-- used mask is the very inexpensive old half-masks which begin covering below the eyes. Other than that if my 67 year-old wrinkled face doesn't horrify them, then they can't be scared anyway...

    And we were very busy today and tonight. we went solid from 7pm to 12 midnight, just my wife and myself taking people through the house. "A Haunted House open all year long? that will never "work"!' Everything depends upon how you treat people and what you have to offer them. Look at a map of Illinois, find Mount Carroll. See any large cities anywhere near there? No, you won't, but people were driving from everywhere to get to our house and much fun was had! Friends bringing friends to...

    We got their check today. In about a week a family will be having a get together here, all going through the house, they are all driving a long way to get here, they all love this place and will be bringing a few new-bies with them. I love it in such situations when some seem scared, the former tourists calm down the newbies, then sometimes scare those newbies for us! Talk about making those "Family Memories!"

    Maybe THE best compliment I ever had was when a group of Chicago Policemen drove the 3 to 4 hours to get here, stood in line for hours, went back home,Couldn't wait any longer, came back the next night and raved to the waiting crowd outside that it was all worth it! Another extreme "compliment" was when maybe 100 people were standing in line yet when a stretch Limo pulled up and six people got out , mosied on up to the front of the line.. "We want to go into your house." ...

    You could maybe use any local history to inspire a room? Obscure local history , that few know of, or even totally fictitious history can be fun too! Just play it straight and get people wondering "Could this be true?" Get their minds so involved they are much easier to scare then, if they are busy "thinking"?

    Hey Otaku, where about's in Southern BC have you been. I live on the West Coast, in the Upper Fraser Valley in a small city called Chilliwack BC. I'm about a 15 minute drive from the Abbotsford/Sumas Border Crossing, little less if I forget to watch my speed,lol. And about a 1 hour drive East from Downtown Vancouver BC.

    Hello Otaku, I just love your Angel on the porch. I'll have to send you a picture of the 2 I purchased, I'd love to know how you have her illuminated? And I can't wait to see your current project when she's finished. Loved the album pictures.
