Every year my family does up the holiday right ... here are some pictures I took last night

The tree of death

the feasting blob

ghost house

creepy ghoul

and of course we have live actors

The mad scientist being poisoned by gas

child of the corn

the tour guide

the haunted bush

the candy people  ...witch and strawberr(she would run candy out the little kids who were too scared to come up to the witch:)

and because I was taking the pictures ...my sister took this later

because it was dark ...this is all the pictures I really got ... but we have so much fun scaring the teens and adults who try to figure out what is real and what is props.

Thanks for looking ...

Personal swap?  Heck Yeah!

Holy cow!  Is that "Great Stuff" insulation that you use on the tree and on Marcus the Carcus?  Does it come off easy?  That's a fantastic idea!

I am walking 12 hours straight for my local Relay For Life event.  [a href="http://main.acsevents.org/site/TR/RelayForLife/RFLFY11MW?px=16690269&pg=personal&fr_id=30095"]Please support me![/a href] I'm only 40% to my goal! =0(

It sure is Great Stuff ... it is awesome and it lasts for years.  There are several yard decoratoions we use ever year made out of it.  It takes spray paint and other treatments and you can carve it, etc ... it stands up  to the Wisconsin October weather ...rain, sleet, bitter cold, snow, heat, humidity...etc for along long time.

We do avoid gettig it directly on people or things and use wax paper as a basw for things we want to bw free floating ...like Marcus, the tree should be usable for many years ... it is paper mache, paint polyurathane, great stuff and plastic skulls.

Thanks for your comments!

I love the tour guide's nikes!

What a fantastic fantastic idea for Halloween. I'm really disappointed we don't celebrate it in Australia, I love haunted house rides at the show/ fair etc.

You have done an amazing job, and all the kids in your neighbourhood must love it to death. Muahah.

Many kudos to your Dia Del Los Muertos face paint too.

It's funny that people (myself included) always complain that every year the Christmas decorations come out earlier and earlier, but no one ever pipes up when the Halloween goodies start floating into stores in September. In fact, if you are in dire straits because you ran out of Halloween candy in July, you can stock up on jelly brains, wax fangs, and fake mustaches online at NYC's Lower East Side wonderland Economy Candy. For some, every day is Halloween.

So it's with no small squees of delight that I have been peeping the pages of Harper's Bazaar and its Tim Burton-styled fashion shoot, which has me drooling for his upcoming MoMA exhibition and career retrospective. Ignore the insane price tags and ogle the spooky-ooky fashion models decked out like some of his most iconic characters. I've spotted Lydia Deetz, Edward Scissorhands, the Mad Hatter, the Corpse Bride, and a few others.
