Thank you all very much! I'm honored to remind people of Coraline and Gorey. What a great compliment!

I did neglect to mention how I make them. First, I took photos around the house. Next, I sketched directly onto printouts of the photos to figure out what sorts of ghosts to make. I then drew the ghosts onto blank illustration board and scanned them into Photoshop. I copied and pasted the ghost illustrations onto the digital photos and set the layer the "multiply" setting, then created another layer underneath to add the white under the ghost, set that white layer to a low opacity, then used a layer mask on the white layer and ghost layer to put the ghost "behind" objects in the photo (like weaving the ghost into the banister or making the arm come from behind the door). I'm always happy to share tutorials, so if anyone wants to know more, just ask me.

What fun. It reminds me of Coraline. These illustrations should be made into a book. Very cool.

Those are really neat.  I love how the opaqueness of the ghosts vary.

Thank you!

I've decided to go ahead an make these into a book, which is an idea I've been tossing around for a while. It'll be something along the same lines as Lady Cottington's Pressed Fairy book, I think. We'll just have to see where it goes. Either way, I can't wait to share more ghosts with all of you. Thank you so much for all the encouragement!

Okay so once again I am completely redoing my pictures. Got tired of photobucket, the only reason I used it was for here so I decided I will just use Craftster's photo uploader. So while I am switching over my photo links will be broken. Message me if there is a post you would like the pics for.
