halloween was great fun and the kids loved the decorations and special effects, fog machine, crank ghost, skeletons on the roof! spiders in the trees hanging bat in the bush, in the yard full of tombstones, hanging ghouls, lots of kids and parents complemented us, we were dressed as dead bride and groom. this old wedding dress is falling a part but I love it. It is too small and I can only breath shallow breaths so when it is time to be done I can hardly wait to unzip it and be able to breath fully. I can only imagine what it must have been like to wear a corset.
WE use face paint to make us look dead and wear black long wigs with gray streaks.
my hubby is 6'5" with a top hat, he is scarey to the little kids. He wears a wireless mic and transforms his voice over a speaker at the house...we are in the yard. WE play spooky music!
Toward the end of the evening Unfortunately The crank ghost got damaged by one of the kids, pulling on it. jeff was able to un wrap the motor and thinks he can salvage her, christine.. Next year we will section off the garage so that they can't get to her. She was a new prop for this year and expensive so that was really disappointing.Afterward we went to our friends house walked 4 blocks there it was cold. His yard was very nicely done, kind of like disney. he decorates all month long. Had a nice vist then went to a local bar met friends and had drinks and just shared stories and enjoyed our selves. IT was a very fun halloween!
