I am new to posting pictures, finally got some up on flickr, here is the link. Thanks for all of the help that I have gotten from you guys, I love this site. All the props are static so far, I got the idea for the witch from Pumpkinrot, and the corpses are a year old. The witch I did this year. The guy in the bushes is 'Bob' a boxing torso thing that I have dressed up the last couple years. You cant really tell but I put alot of spider webs hanging from the tree, it kind of made it look like that swamp type tree they have in the south ( I am in Denver), next year I might try out some different material. The fog chiller was not filled with ice this year, I just had it piped into the cauldron and clamped it down so it would go off every 5 minutes (no timer, only a 400 watt cheap fogger but it did the trick). I hope this works right.

Thanks, I wish I had a bigger front yard, my back yard is huge. I would like to some day get some stuff going in the garage too.

Okay, the link worked for me this morning. Perhaps it's because I'm drinking coffee now instead of the wine last night :rolleyes:

Really spooky front yard! The kids must have been real careful walking up your sidewalk. I also loved the stake in Dracula's body, great touch. :D

I am wondering if I should be lighting from the bottom up like I am now, or put floods in the trees pointing down. I think Pumpkinrot lights from the top down, I have read that bottom up looks scarier though.

Flood lights up in the trees shining down are a great effect. But that also depends on the size of how tall your tree is. At a yard haunt this year a house did that with a green flood up in a gient pine tree while they had another flood like shining down from the top of there house. Your haunt looks really great. Looking forward to 09's.
