:undecidekin:1st - sorry if this is in the wrong place.

So I've said we're going to do a full-blown haunt for charity. Now we're trying to decide if we want to do a scary haunt geared for teens/adults or doa kid friendly haunt.

St. Louis has, arguably, two of the best haunts in the country so they have the scare factor (and money) on their sides. That's leading me to think about doing something different. Maybe a walk through geared toward the kids - more whimsical I guess.

There's a lot of kids in the area and most of our friends have little ones (how we ended up being the oldest ones in the group is beyond me). So I'm trying to decide what theme to use - fast - so I can get started.

I would go the route of something cartoony but dark enough to not be comical, like blending Nightmare Before Christmas with Mickey Mouse (not literally). Have big headed monsters that would look cartoony to an adult, but has enough of a scare factor to work on kids. I suggest looking up a game called Okage Shadow King and looking at their enemies for ideas.
o.o A Hansel and Gretel themed house WOULD be kinda creepy actually, particularly if done in Halloween-esque colors, and maybe a 'monster' or two made from 'sweets'.
