    Hi all, I’ve read posts on this site for many years but finally created an account. I have a fairly large haunted yard along with my neighbors. Last year we estimated we had over 3,000 people visit us during the month of October. My fathers birthday is the 30th of October so ever since I was...
  5. General Halloween
    With everything all taken down and put away, it’s time once again to catalogue the year that was. This year only saw a few new pieces built, but most were larger undertakings, and hopefully helped continue the goal of ‘deepening’ the display. I’m trying to continue merging the house and...

I tried to enlarge this image enough to trace onto my foam, but it was waaay to grainy and just disintegrated... So back to the drawing board. Below is an...

    Okay, I need some advice. I am making a fence for my graveyard this year, and I am unsure of what colors I should paint it. I could do the normal brown (it resembles a rickety old wooden fence) or I could alternate between red and white. I am mainly doing a carnival theme (funhouse this year)...
