I had several different scenes last year, my cottage is within a campground so i do participate big time in the Halloween weekend (trying to motivate my neighbors to step up!) I had 2 cheap blow mold skellies toasting marshmallows over a fake fire (i used one of my DJ props, a silk flame fan with lights hidden in a stack of firewood), I had a skelly cooking a leg on a grill that was filled with orange and red led lights and a small fogger with remote I could trigger as needed, I had another skelly walking a couple dogs, one jumped up on the table to check the leg that was already cooked. I had a giant spiderweb on my garage filled with spiders, this year I have 2 giant spiders to add to that scene and the 2 cheap blowmold skellies I wrapped in cheesecloth and spider webbing and will lash to the spider web. My garage door opening became a movie screen, i have a white spandex screen that fills the space, I have dozens of video clips from all the major halloween projection suppliers that I made a huge montage from, and the upstairs window had a huge TV in it with various eyeballs. I also had a skelly sitting on my mailbox in fishing gear with a paper fish skeleton on his line. This year I have a 4th skelly so I'm changing things up a lot. 3 of my skellies will be dressed as pirates (one captain and 2 mates) in my tandem kayak up against the garage, I will project 2 scenes from the Hi-Rez Pirate Elements DVD (a stromy sea and a pirate ship battle) the 4th skelly will be waterskiing behind the kayak. I now have a skelly cat so the cat will be perched atop my mailbox with the 3 skelly dogs I have all posed trying to get up the mailbox post. My eyeball video will be split between 2 19" monitors mounted in the 2 cars in my driveway. The spider web will have more spiders and 2 very huge ones!!! I will be using a scrim in the upstairs garage window with a flickering light behind it and a combination of appearing ghosts from atmosfearFX ghostly apparitions and phantasms! I get so busy once things start with multiple projectors and foggers and lighting I didn't even take night pics, this year I will be better with that! I'll also be using some of my DJ black lights to illuminate the skellies and spider webbing.
