I know.
It took me forever.
And I don't know if I'm done, but I'm going to make some sub albums like the one for our house's decorations, for separate prop details.
But for the most part here it is!

The coffin looks sweeeeeet. Did you make that?

I also like the skull w/tiara. :D
The coffin was an ebay buy, believe it or not!

A friend in the Carolinas saw it and liked it but it was a "pick up only" deal from Florida. So he let me know and I decided to bid on it. Got it for $89 I think. It is hand made of planks and wood trims and very very heavy! I can JUST carry the lid by myself!

Nice work and great detail! But banged and battered, but that is okay 'cuz I think it just adds to it. The lid has a hinge but one side is off, all I have to do is have them screwed back on, but probably in new holes. The inside is lined with a red fuzzy nylon material with egg crate padding underneath and it will fit a 6ft man. I was thinking if I had the body and mask in it one year and then have a person wearing the mask in it the next (and suddenly sit up) that would be a great shocker!

The tiara was on sale at Universal Studios for a couple bucks, it has a black lace vale in the back. I've worn it a couple times. Hubby LED'd blinking red lights into one of my Bucky skulls, but I thought it needed a bit more pizzaz, so I put the tiara on it. "She" sat on our coffee table for our party and then went outside on a trash bag covered kitty litter bucket for Halloween. Then blinked away on our coffee table for about another week!

Looks good! I like the crawling baby. What is the butt made from?
That is a pvc frame that was originally to be a wall crawler. But since we live in a block house, that ended up being a no-go for the time being.

I have a milk jug with the mask over it and a silk circa 1980's jump suit over it for the last 5 years. But it just always looked too stick-like with the clothes hanging on the frame.

So this year I had a lot of milk jugs so I shoved one thru' the handle over each of the "hip" pieces of pvc and I had a butt! I loved it! I had cut off the neck of the bottles down a bit and stuck duct tape across the holes so that they wouldn't collect water and it made a perfect round bottom for my ghoulie.
That was my pirate's pub. Hubby posed them with their swords both drawn out of each other's sight. My favorite was the drunk skelly collapsed onto the other's shoulder. I hung all those bluckies from the tree with fishing line and posed them like marionettes.
and I thought they were dancing.

The hanging thing was a good idea.
They would move a bit when the wind blew, too.
Really nice! Quite a collection of skellies you have there :)

I love my buckies, I want to order a couple more of each from this month's sale! I already talked to Marilyn! :devil:
Really like the dancing skellies. I may have to "borrow" that for my collection next year.:D Good job!
I would be honored!

Yes, we had a garbage can type, I feel it works better than our cooler type. I want to line it this year, when it is in the 80's Halloween night, it really melts the ice fast!

It tends to be windy hear as well, so it can carry off the fog even chilled. As you can see, many of the pics, including those in the front yard, are "foggy" because it was all over the place! :)

I'm from MI! So believe me I know what you are talking about! How the thumb hasn't turned into a dust bowl over the last windy 20 years I can't figure.

I still miss those wide open spaces though!
I have half a dozen foggers, and I only used one last year. Since we have to deal with the time change I would like to crank up a bunch of them. If I can't have the dark I can at least have a foggy ambiance!

I need to whip up a few more chillers and figure out ways to disguise them. I guess I can hide one as a fat Witch! LOL Maybe make a couple with coolers and hide them as crates for the pirates or a garbage can one as a rum keg. Should be interesting! I also need to start picking up fog juice every time I'm near a Spencer's or I'll never have enough!
