Caretaker of Eerie Manor
Going through some of our old haunt pics and pulled a few of our favorites. Lets see some of your previous year's photos.
I always loved the scenes you come up with! Fun props and nice work on the lighting as well! Very creative stuff!
I'm looking for those. Lost in the archives. Mark might have them so I'll post a couple when I get ahold of them. That was our first year haunting together and a really fun theme.Jerry knows that I was always partial the corn stalk set-up. I think you should post your favorite pic from the military command center theme year.
Fun to see the evolution/change over the years. I wish I had pics of my early efforts. Really modest and blatantly amateur but those years stoked the fire for things to come. Ironically, we're now in the downsizing phase, just trying to keep the level of detail and creepiness we strive for. I think within the next few years we'll be back to just the front yard display, but that'll be okay too!With the shift to the pumpkin carving becoming the focus, I shifted to how to flesh that out in 2011. The first Chimera was born.
2012...the kids talked me into a graveyard as a one off...
2013, I wanted to punctuate the harvest theme as I planned to move on in 2014.
2014, the Spartan. I lost my job in January. Unemployed until October 6th. No time to take of to prepare for Halloween, and we lost my father in law on October 14.
The party is entirely donated by the neighborhood. Pumpkins, food, all.
2015: I decided to take a different spin off the famous sentinels and come up with a 'pregnant' version...I saw some other takes on THAT idea running around the last couple years.
2016, construction stage 1. Doubling the size of your house takes time...Started in April, we gave the construction crew the week off to do Halloween.
2017, back yard actually dangerous state of construction, so front yard more display.
2018, yardwork most the year, no budget. Took that as a challenge.
2019. Trevor's return. Year one of an intended 3 year plan.
