This year, we decided to throw a Halloween/Birthday Party for our two youngest sons. Both of them have a birthday within a couple of weeks of Halloween, and since everything else was set up we figured this would be a great idea. It made me wish that my birthday was closer to Halloween.
Here are a few pictures we took of some of the decorations...
We had a lot of other decorations inside, but I thought the pictures with the lights in them turned out the best.
Well, in my mind they are ghosts. Somebody posted this picture a while back, I can't remember who or where this picture was taken. It looks like it must have been at an amusement park from the roller coaster track in the background. I always thought this would make a good costume, so this year I bought some cheap drop cloths from Lowe's, and dyed them a slightly darker color to replicate the look of these props. I just used some black material under them, hoping it would appear we were kind of "floating" in low light. I also used some black, see through material inside the hood for that faceless look.
I love seeing pictures that other people take of our haunt and the surrounding area. Here are a few that my dad took at Grim Hollow and some other places in the neighborhood. Some of these turned out really great.
