Halloween Set Pics and Video

I estimated we had about 100 trick or treaters that night.  Great weather!.  I will probably do the same set next year, may just add a few things.  People were taking pictures like crazy!  Glad they enjoyed it!

Some of the pics and videos are out of sync from the actual set build.... so in some of the pics you will see some of the props and others not installed yet... I dont have video of overall comprehensive display of the finished product, just not enough time to put it all together in one comprehensive video and picture:

Here is the front yard and basic overview of the display, basically view from the street::

Here is the view from the driveway as the trick or treaters walked up on their way to get their candy.  At one point I had about 20 people standing in the driveway having their kids in costumes getting their picture taken:

Here is snapshot of the boys from the ol' cemetery singing the Grim Grinning Ghosts song from the Haunted Mansion:

Here is the front entrance walkway, my haunted chandelier all flickering and flashin':

And here are some videos... hope they dont load too slow...

And here is the front walk and haunted chandelier:

Here is projection effect for Singing Busts for Grim Grinning Ghosts:

And here is projection effect for Madame Oakbrook haunted bust:

Hope you enjoy!

Dave Lowe Inspired Spooky Sign Post do have a blog, I never said I would be good at it... its been far too long.... but this year will post some new prop builds.... and here we are!

Dave Lowe simply rocks and if you have never seen his Blog you are truly missing out.

Dave some time back posted a prop of a haunted sign post and with his inspiration I made a sign post too.

I added some dollar tree crows that I hacked led eyes in and also found a lantern at Target and put a flicker light in with a FS2 fluorescent light yields a great flicker effect with a night light bulb.   The signs I got off Amazon I just didn't have time to make them but they look nice!

I think it came out great! THANKS DAVE
