The male and female zombie together are from Spirit. Everyone loved them! The singular male zombie is a combination of the swaying zombie kit from Spider Hill prop works and the mask and hands are from Death Studios.I LOVE your zombies. Did you buy them, or make them yourself?
Very interesting story Gym! I see your posts here quite often so I'm a little familiar with your Inn. Dinsmore is not a very common name, though there are a bunch of us around. In fact there are a quite a few in the Illinois and Ohio area. I don't know any of them but I recently met a "Dinsmore" family in Mexico getting on a snorkeling boat. The hotel kept confusing our rooms,etc. They lived in Ohio. Maybe they were possible distant relatives? I'd like to think so! Regardless very cool and interesting story! Maybe haunting is in my lineage!"Dinsmore-Densmore?" Was the name of the family who had a stables and tavern in what is now my haunted house,The Ravens Grin Inn from maybe 1905 to 1924
The young girl who rented a horse from them one day was riding just 2 blocks away when one of them new-fangled automobiles scared the rented horse , he threw her, she hit her head on the brick street.
Three days later she regained consciousness , her worried Father was sitting right there, the first thing his little daughter Ruth said was "I didn't pay them the 25 cents for the horse yet!"
Ruth would much later happen to be my First Grade Teacher, then much later my first Wife;s Grandmother.
This old Inn has been haunted since at least 1925.
A "Woman" in a white dress appears in the one corner of the wine cellar, floats across the room, vanishes..
Right here in little Mount Carrol, Illinois.
