Many people joke that they think our display 'can be seen from outer space'. We believe that is what attracted these new visitors this year!! Unfortunately, their spaceship was unable to land due to the Hurricane... (OK, we did not get the spaceship built and put up before the storm hit. No pictures. Bummer.) There's always next year! Sorry this scene is unfinished, but we thought we would share what we did get done.
Welcome to Area 51! Moooooooooooooooooooo
Now don't be all bummed out... We had a lot of fun. I wanted to leave this on an upbeat note ~ This is our four year old. The costume choice is his own.
Of course it was not something I could buy somewhere, so I had to wing it. This kid is a riot!!
So we leave you with our little conehead zombie from the game Plants vs. Zombies. hahahahahahahaha Happy Halloween!!!!
You know what, this is by no means my style but I love it all the same. It's whimsical, and fun and festive. While I myself would never haunt this way, I love your yard display and others like it. It really captures a side of the holiday, the lighthearted carefree side, that often goes ignored.
Hilda, I've said this before, but I want to say it again here.
You are a true Halloween super star. As big as the very best. The absolute and unquestionable ruler of your genre. One of a kind artist.
I'm so sorry that you were chopped down by the weather (again), but your display still reached epoch heights before you were forced to bring it all inside. Even your last minute display was awesome. You're amazing at what you do. Thanks for sharing it with us all.
WOW! I am overwhelmed with the compliments. It is greatly appreciated. We have so much fun doing this, and it sure is nice to get positive feedback from the folks who know how hard it is to get something like this together. (Did that make sense? lol)
Thanks a million!!
I big shout-out has to go to DaveintheGrave for his awesome tutorial demonstrating how to insert a pvc frame into the Bluckys. He inspired our new Skeleton Invasion scene. Thank you so much!!
Basically, you slice a craft styrofoam egg in half. Scrape/cut two lines in the rounded side. Paint the entire thing black. Use a brown slick paint (bottle) on the lines. Insert black chenille craft pipe cleaners in as legs and antennae. ONLY thing is I used the OUTDOOR Mod Podge to seal them... However, they are STILL tacky (2 months later), and turned gloppy (white) when rained on.
Thanks for asking. I do think they are a great impact, if we can figure out how to seal them better for outdoor use.
Whoops. I didn't mean to bump. I was trying to fix some pictures on this thread and I don't know what I did and now I have two empty posts. LOL What shall I do to fill them up? (tap dancing)(singing) LOL
