    Old build at similar stage:

    It's part of what I anticipate to be a 3 year transition to a new theme, which I seem to change about every 7 years.
    Totally fantastic! Mine would look like toddler mangled play-doh! Gotta love people with talent.

    Please keep us updated on your massive moon. I would love to make one, too but don't know how to light it to look right. I was thinking of hanging it in our giant oak tree in our cemetery so it looks like it's shining through the branches.

    Like this a lot. We're going to try for something similar. Going to use a Walgreen's skellie and corpse part of it, possibly replace the skull with a more realistic one, then cover it in a shroud of sorts. It will lay on top of the crypt like you've done. Hope to start construction of that by next month.

Either here or in a separate post, it doesn't matter, but there is so much amazing stuff being created out there, it seems a shame that we don't get to see it. For us, living on the end of a single lane, dead end road, we actually post here just to get the thrill of others seeing what we do. I know those who get hundreds of folks visiting don't need that extra boost of encouragement, but I still hope you all show off what you do.
    I'll post some pics as we make a little more progress. We've had a "crew" for the past several years, and we typically average between 15-20 helpers to make things run smoothly. Our crowds are large so having the extra hands makes things work better.
    Americans sleep peacefully in their beds at night because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.

    Shroud tomb. Love it, it's on my to-do list as well. IIRC Davis Graveyard has (had?) a tutorial on one, or at least some pics of the process. They did it around 2012, same time as my first Transi. I'd use the thinnest cloth you can to save as much detail as possible on the form underneath. Might even be able to get away with just cheese cloth and dryloc.
