I took advantage of the 3-day weekend to finally put everything (and everybody--get it? every body?  bodies? corpses? ha ha ha....yeah, okay) where it belongs for the rest of the off season.  We put everything in the driveway and put it properly away one by one.

If you recall, this is what my backyard looked like on November 1, and that's pretty much how it stayed for the next couple of months while other things took priority.  Now...

My Dad built these 3 cabinets in the garage that house almost everything

All the lights, fixtures, extension cords, foggers, and miscellaneous small props on the right.

All my full size characters in the middle

And all Three Laboratory animatronics (plus some extra foam and my bucky) on the far left.

But what about the Giant Rusty Gear of Doom?

It was just too cool to put away for the rest of the year  ;)


  1. awesome post dude! i love how they are organized like that...id just just throw everything up in the attic and be done...

  2. is that a Spirit Halloween bag on the top shelf?!? i love that place! but they overprice stuff

  3. Wow, very nice....Wow, I guess that is what I shold have done on my weekend. Thanks for th inspiration, I still have part of today left, might just get out there and make some headway.


  4. well, good for you...but aren't you going to miss this stuff? I miss mine up in the attic so I refuse to take down my little black halloween tree--that stays up in my studio with 2 little pumpkins underneath. helps me get through the year!

  5. Pam, I actually keep all my head props out all year :)
    Here's an old shot of the Shelf o' Heads: http://www.freewebs.com/skeletonhand07/DSCN8056.JPG

    Then there's the Gear in my room, the Nosferatu shadow above my bed....there's actually quite a few props not in storage, now that I think about it...

  6. I love the Shelf o' Heads!
    I sent you an email yesterday...you might want to check your spam folder.

  7. ha! I checked out the Shelf o'Heads..that's great!

  8. "Dad...Frankenstein won't come out of the closet!"

  9. I here you on trying to store everything. I have two storage buildings and the top of our garage overflowing with props.

    And Will, you're cracking me up with the Frankenstein comment!
