  2. Pirate carousing and general tomfoolery in 2019

    Halloween Props
    This all started last Halloween, 2018. I was dressed in my grim reaper costume, standing very stoic and still as the unsuspecting ToTr's wandered up to my wife for their loot. I would then become animate and move very slowly, yet deliberately toward them. A good scare was had by all, and they...

  16. Hi from Alabama!

    Member Introduction
    I've been stalking the pirate threads for a few months but just getting around to joining. I've always wanted to do a cool haunt but have never been able to justify the time or expense. I have two small boys who are obsessed with pirates so the wheels started spinning and I justified it to the...

    Now that Halloween is done I thought I would post my labor of love. Not entirely accurate, but I think is a nice homage to the guy that greeted me into the Pirates of the Caribbean when I was a kid. He talks but I don't have video of him from this year. I'll have to record some tonight.

    General Halloween
    So it seems that I live only a half-neighborhood away from a fellow forum member, and only found out about it last night! Shadowcaster came by my yard to see what all the fuss was about; my two sons were escorting their little sister around for ToT, and came upon his awesome yard display, and...
