Prop ideas in motion...
November 4, 2008|
Display is down, as of last night. That was the longest run
yet, at 5 days and 5 nights. So far, I've been letting the
weather reports dictate the schedule. In the future, I want
to weatherproof more of the props if I can.
The 2009 progress has started.

Display is up! More pictures soon.
Setup time: 3 hours.

I have a skeleton! The head and jaw actually flop around, so it
can be somewhat posed in "dead" poses. I still want to paint
the teeth, but I can do that any time.

Painting both props. They're almost done. The skeleton still
needs his eyes, and the tree needs the flourescent backing to
go inside the face. Unless that looks stupid, in which case he
may get a black backing.

Last photo of the tree before painting, and the last photo
of the skeleton before webbing.
Stupid branch sagged on me again. *sigh*

Progress on corpsing and the dead tree is being made!

I totally want to make a set of hands like this someday:
I've been thinking about the idea of a more complex skeleton costume with actual
spaces between and behind the bones, and an articulated hand. I've seen this
link before, but I just looked at it again. Of course, once again, I'm
thinking of this late in the season and can't possibly do it this year.

Corpsing test using liquid nails, and also started on the
dead evil tree (starting with the roots).

First spook of the season...

31 days left! Tomorrow is October. Over the next week, I
plan to hang the ghost, break out some of the basic decorations,
and get cracking on my new skeleton. I can't believe I haven't
really started on this year's projects yet. This is really
late. I probably won't have much new this year, as a result. :(

100 days left! Are you ready? I haven't even started!

185 days to go, we're just about at the half-way mark between Halloweens.
I'm knee-deep in other projects, such as the droid,
among other things, but I'm getting excited about Halloween again. I'm
tempted to try to build some new props this year and change up the
lighting a little bit. Still plenty of time to plan!

Yes, I realize I haven't yet made the 2007 season's video
yet. Patience grasshopper... :)

Several weeks later...
