    Now that Halloween is over, it is time to go through the hundreds of photos, I took of my house. This is my 11th year for doing a home haunt, and it just keeps getting bigger.

    The front gates to my cemetery. Mother Nature finally decided to be nice and give me a good day. The fog moved around really well through the cemetery .

    See Jon..the fake crows dont fly away.

    This was an attempt at painting with light. I set the camera, at 30 second, and used a red light on the skeleton, and a blue light on the gravestone behind. It took some running to make sure I got enough light on both, but the front image came out over exposed. I tried to fix in PS..but have given up.

    Almost all of my props are hand made, and anything that is store bought is usually torn apart and made over. Takes almost 5 days to set up and 2 days to put away.

    Quite an effort you put in decorating your place, but it looks like it turned out well. Nice series.

    Thanks everyone for the cool comments.
    LIzM. Some dare too. We had a lot of really good scares this year. My "live" props were all dressed in black and hid in shadows. Pretty cool. I found adults easier to scare then kids.
    Jon... um...uh..I have already packed it away. All the heads are in the coffins, limbs in boxes, and I returned the gravestones to the cemteries in the neighborhood.
    I am right in there. I can stand motionless for long periods at a time...guess that goes back to my party days, ...but a lot of the kids wont approach, and can not figure out if Im real or a dummy...dont go there....
    All of my static props are life size, so it is difficult to tell the difference. But it makes for good scares.

    Chiller this is an awesome set up you have done. With these High expectations and results, the kids must talk about this until the next Halloween. It is great to see someone in the neighbourhood really put on a show. Excellent!!!!!!

    Just enormous!
    Wow!
    And you place yourself in the midst of it and watch? Motionless? Doing the odd "Booo!"?
    Scary! I'd shriek and run!
    (You were much nicer in my dream, very "normal" actually :greenpbl: ) :biggrin:

    And you PLUS your neighbour really board up your houses like can be seen in the background of one of the pics for the event? Really? ALL that trouble for this one night? :shock:

    Wow again.

    Wow! That's the coolest thing I've ever seen. I'd love to have seen it in person. You blow the doors off of anything around here. I love all this creepy stuff. Need a tall "daughter"? Hehe.

    Simply amazing. I would love to be there, just to see how close my son would get to your place. (he is a 12 yo, extra large chicken)

    Freakishly cool :thumbsup:
