Since we are revamping our entire haunt this year, I've been hard at work designing rooms. I've started with some of the props for my room that I will be acting in and in charge of and decided on doing a voodoo witches lair. Should be lots of fun!! So anyhow, I was kinda taking my inspiration from tia's treehouse on Pirates of the Carribean and have made some lanterns to hang from the ceiling and also working on some voodoo dolls for around the room, amongst other things. Sharing pics of my lanterns and dolls. :)

Awesome inspiration hauntedkimmy!! Our entire haunt theme this year is a voodoo manor! The lovely HauntChick wrote our story for us and we've been hard at work re-vamping EVERY room in the haunt!!!

Capt.Chaos, would you happen to remember the vendor who had a booth on the corner of their isle...they were to the left when you enter the tradeshow floor? Close to Nethercraft...I remember them having a lot of "voodoo" type decor but I can't for the life of me remember their name!!! Dead House was amazing though!!

Was it gemini something? I think I remember who you are talking about. I have never seen them before.

Val and John at Phantom Foundry have a nice Voodoo Doll costume too

I'm working on a few similar props myself.. it's hard to find some magic things like that, because you can't just go down to 'Wal-World' and buy them.. :/
Good thing is, it forces a lot of art-work to happen! :cool:
I like your little jar-lamps!!

Thanks all! I did see the gorgeous Dead House stuff... simply fab stuff!!! Working on a tight budget, I'm hoping to accomplish a teeny bit of that look!!! I love that attention to detail...that's SOOO me!! I would've drooled for hours over the Dead House stuff!!!

I couldn't find anything either Banshee so creating it myself seemed to be the way to go, both for idea and cost. I plan on making dozens of lanterns on just hanging them around the room and hoping it looks super cool! :)

I like being called "lovely" :) And I enjoyed writing voodoo since I'm from Louisiana and all. It's quite facinating that most people think of voodoo as abstract and southern. Whereas I look at it like a tradition, a part of my heritage.

And CB, I need you and Mr. Stiles to send me a quote for the site, please... :) Thanks!

...and every self respecting voodoo girl needs a shrunken head or two. I just finished up one with the charcoal blackened look and might do another in the natural look. !! :)
