Yup. Very beautiful videos - as beautiful as burping videos can be, anyway.
I dunno - you're crazy talented and yet you seem really down to earth so it's always fun to see your posts (even if they're about handling a pack of cranky neighbours). I'lll definitely keep an eye on your blog to see what big things you got coming down the pipe.
Your hands must be permanently caked in paper mache by now!
Hey Rania! Just came across your blog in the Alice thread. Hadn't seen that before (just your homepage in your profile.) Thanks for sharing that - been a fan of your posts here for a while and it's good to see the full scope of things.
But I'm mostly posting this comment because you and your son are kind of adorable together.
You don't think going pro would ruin your love of Halloween? People often ask me if I'm going to start charging for my haunt. I always answer no. The cool thing about building a home haunt (for me at least) is the lack of responsibly. If a prop fails then I pout a little and move on. Or if something is not perfect then no big deal. I worry That the second you start charging someone then the expectations change. With money involved then you are obligated to perform. Right now I have no one I have to answer to. (Although it is a lot of money out of my pocket) .
The outside is actually battery powered leds. Probably 50 or so individual battery packs and lights. It took a few years to build up that collection.
The inside is a different story. By the way if I'm being honest the photos you see of the interiors is not the actual lighting I used. The real lighting did not show up well on camera as it is fairly dark. The real interior lighting is a new digital led lighting system. It was my big purchase for the 2012 season. Anyway the digital lighting was great. I could fade each room in and out as the guests passed through. One item I discovered involved the commercial led lights. They did not perform very well. I had to build some of my own led lights.
Rania!! I'm so sick of cute elves and candy canes so I freaked when I saw you posted your video on FB!! I watched the entire video TWICE the other day (instead of going out and helping hubby shovel snow LOL) It was like porn. Sincerely GORGEOUS. You are brilliant! I needed that Halloween fix!! Thank you!! When I grow up I want to haunt like you!! (OK... I'm old enough to be your mother... I meant I wish when my 'haunt' grows up it could be like yours!! LOL)
