Oh my gosh, so check this out. I bought the GrandinRoad Victoria prop on sale, thinking I would use her for next year. Then an epiphany happened. I stuffed her hair and netting into the wig. Perfect since it had all that extra space for the beehive. Look, I now have a Bride of Frankenstein to go with my Frankenstein. Can't wait to put them together.

My drink special menu. We hire a bartender for this event because there's too many people to serve and enjoy the party at the same time. Mummy's curse, Corpse Reviver and Dracula's blood red margaritas

I could not get my Frankie and the Bride together in the spot I originally had. Plus they looked so nice I figured people would want to do a photo op with them. I rearranged some furniture and now they are a focal point of the room. Worked out much better. The old area is now an appetizer area.

I'm also including a pic of the before pic of my bride. This is GrandinRoad's Victoria with all her hair and gauze pulled up into the bride wig. I added green lights to go with the lab.

Here are the before and after shots of the basement. The only big things I had to remove were the music equipment (Drums, Guitar).

All of the husband's action figures have been stored away. That was the most time consuming of this makeover.

We have our friends and family party this Saturday with up to 70 guests and the following Saturday is our teen party with about 20-30 teens. Transformation is complete!

One last little add on. I picked up a large aquarium tank for my daughter who wants to build a terrarium. Since we didn't start that project, I could let this awesome prop go to waste. I had that animated hand in the room. But it doesn't move well on carpet and I felt it would be lost or keep falling off a table. Now I've made a little habitat for him. The brave kids can stick their hand in and activate him.

Starting to set up for tonight's party. I'll try to add some pics here if I have the time. Here are the "stained glass" windows I made for our kitchen. You'll also see part of my version of Maleva the gypsy from the Wolf Man.

The living room has a small homage to Dorian Gray. This picture changes to an old, decrepit version of Dorian. This is part of the Invisible Man study. Also wanted to say thanks to my Reaper who got me the nice skull towel.

My friend dropped off her awesome sarcophagus and GrandinRoad mummy. Thanks to the fellow HFer who told me that sarcophagus was for sale in my neighborhood. I knew it would be perfect for her and then I get to borrow it! Always nice to have a friend who loves Halloween as much as I do. The detail on the sarcophagus is amazing. It is in 3 pieces. I'm including the original sale pic so you can see it in regular light.

I'll try and post a few more pics later. Here's a sampling of our Frankenstein lab basement. The lighting turned out perfect!

Some of the smaller props from the Mummy Room. Many of these items were from thrift stores or garage sales and repainted.
