A Haunter Can Dream: Giant, Expensive Props

Every year I eagerly await the newly released props from Scare Factory. I spend ridiculous amounts of time looking at all of the prop videos and rationalizing emptying out my savings account to buy just one giant piece of this animatronic collection. After all, one piece would probably take up my entire yard ;) Here are some of my favorite pieces:

Brushing the Dust Off

It is high time to bush the dust off and get cranking on projects for Halloween 2014 :)  I have a few things in mind, but I'd really like to make some big changes to the display.  I just don't really know what to do yet!

So, I'm coming to you my bloggy friends!

What do you think would be some great additions to 2nd Street Cemetery??

Abandoned Theme Park

I don't recall if I've ever posted about this before, but after finding these pictures, I couldn't help posting. The picture above was taken in the abandoned Six Flags Theme Park in New Orleans East. It was devestated during Hurricane Katrina and never re-developed. It's been the subject of many curious photographers and the back drop for quite a few movies. Currently, the new "Jurassic Park World" will be filming there beginning this weekend. Check out the photo gallery and the article. Abandon Six Flags New Orleans

Halloween Prop Potential

Found this lovely lantern today at Michaels. I'm going to use it for everyday home decor, but it will probably have dual usage as Halloween prop. It's 60% right now, brining it to a whopping $10. I'm sure you guys could find some great uses for a gem like this! My first thought was for Jack, my grounds keeper, but it also looks like a great container for some strange plant or critter. Even some small skulls with moss and stuff. Who knows!!! If anyone else gets one, be sure to tell me how you plan on using it :) Happy haunty shopping ;) -Countess


I've been a terrible blogger this year! It's all ready June and I've only made 2 posts! Bad Countess. But don't worry bloggy friends, I've been lurking around all of the lovely Halloween blogs, getting inspired and the Halloween itch is soon becoming one that I'll need to scratch. New Halloween projects will begin this month. Till then, I'll keep lurking around and trying to write blog posts when time permits. Halloween on! -Countess =D

Home Haunter's DVD Collection and Contest 2013!!!

I'm alive! Sorry I've been away :) I've suddenly found myself in a very unexpected but lucrative cookie baking business on the weekends and all of my free time. But not to worry, Halloween is still very much in my life! I have great plans for 2014 :) Speaking of... entries for the 2013 Home Haunter's DVD Collection and Contest are due February 15th!!! This is always a fantastic collection for any Halloween fan and the contest is certainly something that adds fuel to the Jack o' lantern fire to build better things every year! My entry is almost finished and my Mom is even submitting an entry for her lovely Annual Witch's Tea this year! For more info, go here:
