Welcome, ladies and gentlemen, to the bayou.

The year is 1938. The current owner of a (now-defunct) Sugar Creek Plantation has invited several prominent members of New Orleans society to the mansion for a Hallowe'en Ball. After the Civil War, the house and its grounds fell into a state of disrepair, compounded by the financial crisis of The Great Depression.

Once a grand estate, a sinister presence now resides within the plantation and over the surrounding bayou. Talk of hoodoo rituals, ghostly apparitions, and the howls of a strange beast whenever the moon is full have fueled rumors of the mansion's curse.

The New Orleans socialites are eager to unlock the plantation's secrets. Unbeknownst to them, however, their host has a secret of his own, one which may put their very lives in jeopardy.













With setup finished I couldn't resist posting a few photos for your enjoyment!! Plenty more to follow in the days leading up to and following my annual party on the 25th. Please, let me know what you think! And stop by again soon for an update! Your tour of the plantation is not nearly finished. ;)

Is that bird skelly real? What and where did you get it?

On second thought, don't tell me, my wife might be reading and decide to get one to prank me with...they inspire reactions from me most people reserve for spiders or normal such stuff. Yeah, I am NOT carving no dang turkey thank you and I'm leaving the house while whoever DOES.

Fortunately its WAY early am, and I have time to exorcise that image from my brain before trying to sleep.

Everything else is gorgeous.

Everything looks so awesome, vampyrespro! Your lighting and photography skills are phenomenal - not to mention your eye for detail and element selection.

Your party guests are truly lucky to be invited to the plantation, but for those of us who have to visit via this site, please don't wait too long before continuing our tour!!

I cannot thank you all enough for the compliments! I promise more photos are coming, including wide shots to give you a sense of the entire display.

Hah! Thank you very much, unorthodox! I actually found this little guy in the attic, totally skeletonized already. Bones are a big part of the voodoo theme, but so are birds for their symbolic value. I have a lot of bird related stuff--claws, and jarred fetal specimens. Only view this thread during the daylight hours from now on; it only gets worse from here!! :p

Disembodiedvoice, the dummy isn't as old as I'd like (one day I'll get my hands on an antique ventriloquist dummy) but he does his job for now! People are freaked out by dolls, period. So sit yours anywhere and I can almost guarantee some adverse reactions :D
