Head In A Jar

I think this prop looks great. Easy to make too. Take a look at the original here.

Bandwidth Blues

I got a warning from my web hosting company that my bandwidth for the month is almost gone. I do not want to upgrade my package for the entire year just to meet the demand for this single month. I have removed all the images and video clips from the site to keep it from being locked. Sorry if you see broken image links over the couple of weeks. They will be back soon.

Flaming Extreme Pumpkin

That wacky guy Tom over at has a video of a flaming demon pumpkin. He used kerosene soaked toilet paper to keep it burning for 45 minutes. Great stuff!

Our FCG Is Flying

I put another prop on display early this year.

I rigged up "Vicky" to fly in our guest room dormer above the Pumpkinrot Scarecrow.

The picture was shot at f/4.5 for 25 seconds. She's not as bright as the image.

Night-shot of Scarecrow

In the years past, I've really never put any props out before Halloween. I love the "magic" that comes with a display "appearing" on the big day and "disappearing" late that night. But I decided to put selected items out early this year. Last night I put up our Pumpkinrot Scarecrow. Tonight I took a pic.

I know. I said I was not going to buy any more props this season. But I'm a sucker for a good deal.

I bought a Grossferatu prop from Fright Catalog for $39.99. It had been priced at $99. He arrived today. I had read that some folks thought the paint job was too dull. But I like it. I wish the lips and eyes were a little less pink but overall I think he's a pretty creepy dude.

Paying homage to the Master

Our Pumpkinrot Scarecrow

My son and I got our scarecrow built this afternoon. We could not let another year pass by without having one in our little yard haunt. The inspiration is here:
