    Well i think after being in these forums since 08 i should finally make a splash. Ive been decorating the yard for Halloween as far back as I can remember being 8yrs old and making tombstones out of cardboard and blank squares of wood taking winter gloves stuffing them and staking them in the ground, and as far as boiling hot water to use the steam as a fog machine.. lol Ive done just about everything you can imagine. Ever since my display has turned into a massive undertaking and a year round project that i strive to make better every year when I thought I couldn't out do myself the year before. Id love to hear your comments on what you think its going to be allot to take in as Ive been quite for the past 2 years haha.

    First off Im terrible at website designing so the best I could do is a myspace page.

    Onto a couple pictures.











    The pictures below are some new tombstones that Ive aquired for this upcoming year

    Im to the left the wolfman is our painter and on the right is my father. The three of us pretty much are the team that make this happen.



    Here is also a new logo that I came up with and was made with photoshop. The next is a mini model that I want to transform our facade into. Great inspiration came from a local pro haunt in the area. Lastly is a new webcaster gun i picked up Im quite excited to use that bad boy

    VERY well done! I love the lighting you used... Very cool!
    Did you make your gravestones? If so, what did you use to carve them?
    They're beautiful!
    Can't wait to see what you do this year!

    Those four gravestones were another of many lucky finds on ebay..Only $50 plus shipping for all four! Ridiculous I know!!!!

    Heres some more pictures of props we aquired last halloween.
    These gargoyles were another steal a local haunt in the area we found was selling props on craigslist and we got both of these guys for $50 a pop. They usually go for well over a 100










    We have a very large collection of allot of nice props. The lighting I use are colored flood lights strategically placed along with 18"blacklite fixtures under certain props.

    I can't wait to share how this year turns out with everyone Thanks so much for the kind remarks!!

    Check this out.. These two pictures had to been from one of the very first years I ever started seriously decorating funny how this turned into what its become today!



    Two more random shots from 2008 prebuilding



    Yes I ACTUALLY lay down mulch covering the entire path from the front of the yard to the facade just to give it that extra look and feel.

    Your static props look horrific just standing there. Very nice!
    You could have one tombstone facing away from the customers so it could not be read, then the gravedigger says, "Look! This stone has your name on it!"
    "No it doesn't!"
    "Oh, yes it does."
    "You don't even know my name!"
    "Then take a look at the stone and see what it says."
    (The stone of course has the inscription..."Your Name")
