This year we are letting our Sister in-law use our Pumpkin King display that we have been using the last 2 years. Link - (http://www.halloweenforum.com/halloween-props/85626-pumpkin-king-lives.html). We decided to do something completely different and create a Pirate Theme. Our main focus for this year was to tackle the front porch.

The skeletons are all Buckys. The wheel was purchased on ebay. The helm frame was made by us. The support floor everything is standing on is an 5’ fence section that was being thrown out by one of our neighbors. The clothes are either pirate costumes or some great Goodwill finds. Clothes, helm and Buckys where all weathered/depressed by us. The most challenging thing was making the two skeletons at the helm look at those they are free standing. All in all, we are quite pleased with the results. Plans are already in the works to add new props for next year.

Ha! No (CraigInPA), I don’t work for Disney. Thanks for the comment. I do love their theme parks and movies! I get volunteered a lot to make props, which helps. Plus this forum is a great resource for inspiration and tips.

I am really impressed with the clothes for the two pirates at the wheel. The indoor chandelier also has a very "piratey" presence to it. Great job ike23!

Would you believe the boots on the two by the helm are boot covers over ankle type boots I found at Goodwill. I distressed them by rubbing dirt, using sand paper and spray painting them.
