  5. Starting to change my way of thinking

    General Halloween
    After watching endless youtube videos of home haunts, I'm starting to change my opinion of what really makes a scary haunted house. I think setting up "scenes" such as; all the witches here, all the zombies there...etc... doesn't feel like a haunted house, rather than a museum. Anyone else...

  12. Too much to do?

    General Halloween
    We are doing a party this year in addition to decorating as usual, but changed themes completely - usually do a typical spooky graveyard, but I fell hard for the carnival/circus theme and that meant starting almost from scratch on all decorations. I am the only one that builds and works on...
