The Batman- I really like those purple lights!! And even though I've decorated extensively for Halloween- for 30 years...I have never thought of hanging the light strings vertically! That is an AWESOME effect! A person can get stuck doing things the same way year after year, and I think I'm getting set in my ways! hahahahaha!  I'm going to steal your technique, and hang some orange lights (or purple if I can find some) vertically behind a lacy curtain. We have an area that we cover with a black curtain during our Halloween party, that is just full of our computer junk, and it would look cool to have it illuminated because it's in the back of a room. 
ZH- I need to get to Lowes! It's fun to see what they have.
My guillotine is a non-functioning torture device. We will display it outside for a couple of weeks, and we don't want to take a chance on anyone getting hurt on it. I had my husband make the neck hole large enough for the skeleton victim- but it doesn't have a hinge or a big enough hole for a live human.  And the blade is sheet metal, but I put a thin ridge of red duct tape across the edge so it's not sharp. I know........I know.....NO fun!  Ha!  Our stocks are built the same way-  big enough for a 5' Blucky skeleton- that's all. They are just for looks.  We put our electric chair out on Halloween day for people to take pictures sitting in it.

I've obtained lots of purple lights from Walgreens during the past 3 yrs, so it may continue to be the same. 'Starting to see lots of stores building their Halloween sections. Good times!  :)

Picked up Ichabod Flame from Lowes, it's a ceramic Jack O'Lantern that uses the same flame effect that you see in faux fire places.  Apparently each Lowes isn't stocking very many of them, the first one we went to had one on display which really caught our eye...and apparently a few other folks as well.  They didn't have any more instock but a worker told us that another store had 2, we ended up going to the other store later that day.  I think the only reason the store had two left was because they didn't have one displayed so no one really noticed them.  If you get a chance swing by Lowes and check out ol' Ichabod!  It's cool to have a Jack O'Lantern that won't rot and you don't have to worry about an open flame inside of, he'll be illuminating the night from now until Halloween!

'Sounds good!  8)

LOVE the smell of pumpkin roasting over a candle flame!  To me, it is better than pumpkin pie smell on Thanksgiving.

'CLASSIC. I plan to enjoy it again this year. Thanks for the memories of how cool it is...

These are some of the decorations we use:









We had problems last year because we had the tail end of a tropical storm blowing on Halloween and our Jeepers Creepers Creeper took a couple of unplanned flights off the roof, so this year we're focusing on coming up with a better mounting system.

I had hoped to do a werewolf from Dog Soldiers, but if you're familiar with that monster the head is based on a real wolf head, so I'm having to work through a taxidermist to get a wold shoulder mount done and that takes forever.

Didn't decorate too much, but did carve up a Frankenstein jack-o-lantern. Probably the most complicated pumpkin design I've attempted (from a sketch I made). Looks alright, weirdly ape-like though...

Those are great.

(Imagine everyone's embarrassment when, a week after Halloween they discovered Lawnmower man was not a decoration.)

WE just added the gargoyles (cement) to our porch this Halloween.  They'll now be there year round
What ever happened to my Transylvania Twist?

Been a little slow with the pics (and set up) this year!!







Doing a bunch of test shots of my new gutter set up; I set up a little fence in the gutter (need to hit the clearance this year and buy more!), it is lit up with green, purple and yellow blinking lights and fog also comes up out of the gutter!






Changed this window ghoul up a little bit this year and now have it holding a flaming cauldron...it puts the perfect highlight on the face!




Here's a horribly blurry/pixilated picture....


Finally put the columns/bases together yesterday afternoon and I'll finish setting them up today!


If you have Facebook you can check out this little test video of the gutter set up!  The lights don't look so "Christmas light" in person...this may have also been before I pushed them further down in the gutter as I only wanted the ambient lighting from them!
