Hello every one. My name is Jimi and this is my second post on the cool forum. I've been a lurker for some time and never really had the courage to post. But that has to come to a stop. I been reading lots of post and every one seems to have nice comments to say about every ones props. Well just wanted to share my version of Halloween. Hope you guys like. I'll be posting some other pics as I finish with my other props.
Enjoy...

Home made chain link fence.






my zombies that I made my self. The heads were purchased from Terror Syndicate. They came naked and I dressed and painted my self. The bodys are made of PVC, chicken wire, news paper, duct tape, construction adhesive for the rot look and wood stain.











Thanks for looking. :)

Why in the world have you been lurking? Your props are fantastic! The skull fence is brilliant using the flicker candles like you did. The zombies look extra spooky dressed. Then we could talk about your lighting and photography. Please stay here, I love your work!

I'll do one an Tutorial soon. thanks

I love your graveyard and how you've used lighting for effect. Brilliant stuff I bet you can't wait until Halloween to scare those trick or treaters :D
Thank you for your comment. yes I love seeing other people reaction when they arrive at my home. Its great feeling when people appreciate my home made projects. Plus the kids get a super big kick out of it. lol.

LOL. Your to kind. Thank you. This is my second year making Zombies and its getting essayer to make every time. i love making zombies. Wish I could make them every day. lol
As for the lighting I'm using Out door flood lights for land scaping. I just took out the lenses and sprayed different color paint on the lens to get that effect.
My camera that I'm using is a Nikon D80 frame. I for got what lens that I was using that night. Slow shutter speed on the pictures. No flashes...



Dude, nice work! Seriously, think about posting tutorials for how you made the skull posts and the zombie bodies. And BallstonManor is right--the palm trees add something to the scene. I think it has a kind of voodoo feeling.
LOL. I defiantly do a tutorial as soon as I can. Been really bust trying to finish up on my other zombies. i 'll post them up as soon. Thanks for the comments.



Thank you every one for the kind comments. really appreciate it allot. I'm glad to see that every one is enjoying my props. keep an eye out for more zombies to come......

Very nice! i don't know why you were worried about posting I mean that is a really great set-up!!
Thanks... I'm just weird like that. I notice some times that my confidence level isn't up there and I don't give my self the credit I deserve but I'm working on it with the aid of my wife and two little girls. Their defiantly my biggest supporters and they help me build my confidence stronger....
Thanks for the comment.
:D
