Spirit Halloween Store






Went to the Spirit Halloween Store in Charlottesville, VA yesterday. Saw some pretty cool stuff, all I bought was another fog machine. I would like to have bought the witch that was in one of the pictures (the one that is crouched down) but it was $250.00. Oh well, I got a good picture of it... might have to make one like that one of these days.

The trip did get me a little more motivated about getting some things finished so today I started moving stuff out of the basement and into the garage. I put the new pneumatics in my chained coffin, and a pneumatic cylinder in another coffin I have that opens the lid to show the corpse that is inside of it. I made a couple of videos of these that I was going to post, but they turned out too dark. Maybe I'll make another one tomorrow and get it on here. In the next few days I hope to get my new tombstones painted and re-finish my fence columns to make them look more "rock-like". I also want to touch up the three monster mud creatures I used last year (the scarecrow, watcher, and night watchman).

There are now two houses in my neighborhood with Halloween decorations up. I'll try to get some pictures up after a few more houses put some things out.

Awesome stuff!!! Spirit store is the best! Those are all great props, but I especially love the crouching, green witch. I thought it was someone in a costume at first (it wasn't, was it??). The other witch stirring the cauldron is awesome, too. They have awesome shit!

It wasn't a costume, it's just that real looking! It was made out of foam and latex.
