That's my loosely thrown together theme for this year. I got a late start on putting everything together and with the heat- oh the heat! The Pumpkin man scarecrow was a big hit with neighbors and all. Made from saved prop items such as a Funkin, an old wool coat, gloved stick hands, a pillow, Tay's old uniform vest and a sombrero with the brim flipped down. Lately, I've been into using pillows as bellies for scarecrows. He was to be a pre-halloween display and I was going to transform him on the 31st. But, I kept him as is. So many scarecrow ideas, so little time, right? The haunter in the chair is a corpsed skelly from years ago. I dragged down the Count the day before and gave him one last run since he is starting to peel. As I was putting things up, I was thinking of a story for fun. A yard haunter who invited his new creepy neighbor to help him with the haunt and ended up being a part of it. A haunt about a vampire who turned a haunter into a haunt. How avant-garde! So the messy workbench, corpse in the garbage can, chipped tombstones, bloody mailbox- all signs that someone strange moved in.
Getting pics was a challenge. My phone is jacked up and sometimes doesn't want to take pics. If I use filters, it will revert them the next day. So I use my glass jar lid trick a lot to be artsy. Any filters used and I take a screen shot of the pic. There are many more pics over on instagram so please check them out. Now the fun part. Putting everything away and trying to organize the garage. Happy Halloween!
