IT SMELLS LIKE HALLOWEEN OUTSIDE
You know what that means:
King of Halloween
Webber Yard Haunt (my baby) 2013 - day time photos.
Witches hut (in a willow tree)
Witches hut 2 - Cauldron shot.
Pirates bay (bad shot, but it’s awkward to get it all in one shot without standing in a bush :P)
Alien Abduction/bio hazard area.
Decapitated Tabitha in the torture chamber.
I have a bunch more photos, but unfortuantely tumblr is being really slow and it’s taking four minute per photo to upload. So…. this is all you get for now! lol. Keep in mind this is day time, so there’s no fog, sensor lights, the animatronics are turned off, there’s no volunteer ghouls - etc. This is strictly a ‘look at all the stuff I crafted!’ post.
Right, so. If you were following me last year, you saw all the stuff I posted about the yard haunt and how it completes my life, and I love it an it’s my baby. So it’s with absolute and utter heartbreak that I have to tell you now - my family is no longer doing the haunt. My parents divorced, and both moved to smaller places where they are renting and not allowed to rip up their yards for the sake of a haunted house. SO - there is no haunt this year. I am emotionally devastated, and entirely unsure of what to do with my life. I’ll reblog the pictures from last year, but yeah. No new haunt. :( Man, I am depressed.
My kid is Sam Winchester….. be jelly.
That time when: my kid needed 3 Halloween costumes, so I turned him into Sam Winchester for one of them.
Halloween ‘Watch List’
I love movies. I love Halloween. I love Halloween movies. Here’s the list of movies I like to watch throughout the month of October, to get me pumped for the holiday! I spend my month making decorations/plans for a charity yard haunt, so I spend most of my time at my parents house painting tombstones, bottles of eels eyes for the witches hut, stuffing creature bodies with newspaper - etc. It’s nice to have movies to watch while I do that, so this is our go-to list of things to watch while we work (though, yesterday we watched Game of Thrones… lol).
Some of these movies my family has been watching together for years, it’s become tradition - others are newer, which is lovely - because it’s always great to see new Halloween themed movies! There’s lots of different genres in here, and varying levels of age appropriateness - so I like to think there’s something for everyone! I’ve bolded anything ‘scary’ - just to be on the safe side - if you scare easily or get nightmares, maybe stick to the unbolded suggestions! I’ve also italicized all the movies that I would be comfortable letting my child watch, in case some of my followers have kids. :) If you watch one a day (Not including sequels and such), it will take you all the way to Halloween!
1. Hocus Pocus
5. Zombieland (half scary)
6. The Addams Family
8. Ginger Snaps (and 2, and ‘The Beginning’ - I love this series).
10. Jeepers Creepers
11. The Nightmare Before Christmas
13. Saw (any or all)
14. It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown
16. Sleepy Hollow (sort of scary)
17. Rocky Horror Picture Show
18. House of 1000 Corpses
19. Hotel Transylvania
20. Monster House
21. Pet Cemetary
22. Dark Shadows
23. Childs Play (And any of the Chucky Movies, Bride of Chucky is my favorite)
24. The Haunted Mansion
25. The Exorcist (Depending on how you view scary)
26. A Nightmare on Elm Street
27. Little Shop of Horrors
30. Shawn of the Dead
31. Anything done by George A. Romero.
AUTUMN IS COMING! Fall means Halloween.
I am of the happy. If you remember, I talked about my families charity yard haunt in this post - and I ended up finding a video we had about it that I thought was lost! So this is a walk-through of the haunt! :) Just a warning one more time - in about two weeks I start working on this , and I won’t talk about anything else (well, mostly anything else) until uhm… like November 3rd. rofl. So - apologies in advance - I just really love giving back to my community by scaring the absolute poop out of people! ALSO - if you could ask me questions about the haunt, I am the PR and marketing rep, so I need to start prepping myself for answering questions and doing press interviews. You can help me prepare for that, by asking me questions and getting me in the right mindset! <3
Reblogging my own post, because I really want to stress: I will be busy from now until November 1st, and I know you all adore my art but I just won’t have time to furiously pump it out like I have been. This doesn’t mean I don’t love you - I am always available to chit chat about anything… but bonus points if it’s Halloween related because that’s where my head has to be from now until this is over!!!
The haunt isn’t happening this year, because my parents divorced and are moving to separate houses on October 1st, and their respective new yards are too small/new neighbors. SO - no more haunt. I am obviously depressed, I spent 13 years on this haunt. It’s my main hobby - and my way of giving back to my community. I am very upset.
See that kid, I cooked him in my uterus. The recipe is a secret. Be jelly.
