They look so hauntingly creepy jdubbya, just wonderful work! Your haunt this year is probably going to be even better than last year. What is that nurnie looking stuff hanging off of the skulls? Is it just ripped paper towels, or some kind of string?

We think this year's haunt will have a different "feel" to it, especially the front yard display portion. If it comes out like we want it to, it should look very creepy. The "nurnie looking stuff" is just strips of paper mache that I mangled up a bit.

Default Finished pair of lantern poles.

Here are some pics of the finished pair of my witch lantern poles. I used grape vines for added detail. Came out pretty fair

These are so eerie and ethereal. They're really going to give a very different look to your yard this year.

We're hoping so. Really going for an organic woodsy look. I'm working on two other larger props that will compliment these and have the same feel to them. I tend to focus on the yard portion of the display early on and lewlew is working on the facade of the haunt and some of the interior details. It's neat to see it all come together in October.

I'm pretty much a chimp when it comes to this stuff but it's been fun to try my hand at it and I'm getting some of my own ideas lined up for future stuff!
