  1. 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.

    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...

    I had every intention of keeping my display of pirate skeletons in our dining room, where I placed them back in August. My front yard has been lit since the last week of September, and we were going to allow our friends and older ToT'rs to come into our foyer and see the dining room display...

    Well I have finally finished the three busts that will line the pathway to the door of Drake Manor:). As Lady Eleanor and Lord Charles are both static, I wanted to give this one a twist, so Captain James Winston has joined them. This one is on a sensor so his mouth moves and speaks when anyone...

    I noticed that Big Lots! is restocking their 21in half whiskey barrel planters again. I bought one a few years ago for my pirate's crow's nest. Looks like 20% off now. http://www.biglots.com/product/21-whiskey-barrel-planter/p210020690

    Finally! Our video for Pirate's Cove 2016. We added some new things, got rid of some stuff that wasn't cutting it any more. Revamped the jumping spider, too! Likely the strangest video you'll watch today... :) Enjoy!!!

    So here's my attempt at a static pirate prop. I bought the skeleton dog from Grandin Road this year and I'm pretty happy with it. I'm still playing with different lighting arrangements. I also have a projection video playing in the window on the other side of the house with a pirate flag. (no...
