Hi everyone. I've just recently joined the forum but have been lurking (and learning) for a while now. What a great resource this place is! I've been decorating the house for a few years now but in a very minor way with mostly store bought items. Last year was really my first true Haunt. I made 4 tombstones, a Grim Reaper and went all out on the decorating. This year was bigger and better - another tombstone, modified the Reaper and added a 4 foot scythe, zombie ground-breakers and an absolutely huge giant spider in my driveway. I have done up a web-site with pictures and videos from the Haunts along with some pictures and descriptions of the various projects I've been working on. Take a look. I'll also post under "Haunts and Displays". Thanks again for all the great information and inspiration!

Welcome aboard UH. As a half Canadian, I'm always glad to see the far North contingent growing here. I'll be looking forward to seeing your haunt grow over the years.

Hi everyone, thanks for all your comments. It's great to be part of such a supportive community. HalloweenRick: I don't know about you being a dork - I'm the one that spent 7 months working on a costume - what does that make me? LOL!

The groundbreaker started off with a store-bought head (Wormfood from FrightCatalog) but I wasn't happy with the paint job. I repainted the whole head to bring out the detail and added the hair & glasses. For the body it's a combination of PVC pipes, scrap wood, foam pool noodles and duct tape. The suit came from a discount store and was heavily weathered. The hand was mad up from foam, wire and lots of paper towels/duct tape. I covered it in a snot-rag mache and then painted it to match the head. I've got some in-progress shots on my website, here's the link...
