Stricken at Nightfall

I thought this picture turned out kind of cool. I took it while laying on the ground, looking up at the prop as the sun was setting behind it.

Lost on Halloween Night

This one fooled a few people... my mom came up and helped pass out candy on Halloween night, and she even talked to it a few times forgetting that it was just a prop I had placed there. Later on in the night, I moved it up closer to the road where all the parents usually stand. I saw a few of them try to have interactions with it as well. The kids reactions were the best though, when they realized that this was no ordinary kid they were talking to.
As it appeared Halloween night.

Nice work, Teresa!

Grim Hollow 2009: The Darkest Hour

These were all taken the night of November 1st. All of these props were left outside overnight while we received 2 to 3 inches of rain, and they held up pretty good for not being sealed or anything like that. I have some pictures from Halloween night that didn't come out nearly as good, I'll post some of those later. I am so glad I decided to leave the display up for one extra day so that I could get some decent pictures... I usually break it all down on Halloween night so that on the morning of November 1st, all appears to be back to normal.

Yet Another Grim Relative...

Another one of Grim's relatives celebrated its first Halloween this year, this one is carrying skulls and appears much taller than the one I built.
Nice Prop, Brian!

Halloween on November 1st

I decided to leave my display up for one more night since the rain prevented me from getting any good pictures on Halloween night. So, we had Halloween again tonight. I even had a few people stop by and get out to look at all of it. The pictures I got tonight were much, much better, and I'll post some more soon!
This is what a prop looks like after being left out in about 2-3 inches of rain overnight by the way... not too bad, some of them had some minimal damage, nothing a little paint won't fix. I don't use any sealer or anything, and was surprised at how well they held up.
