A lot of pictures on this site were hosted on Photobucket before they disabled photo embedding. If you'd like to see pictures for a particular post, please let me know, and I'll prioritize getting those images fixed next!

Haunted Mansion Holiday Photoshoot

I went to the Haunted Mansion the other day to grab some reference photos for an upcoming project (more on that soon!), and snapped a few extras for fun.  Enjoy!

You may have noticed a change in the blog header graphics (or not, since there hasn't been terribly much going on here lately, so you probably don't even remember, right?).  Here's the scoop:

1) The last header had lousy artwork that was really only meant to be a placeholder

2) "Yard Haunt" really has no business being in the title anymore, as we've just passed six years since the last one.  They will return, but not in the foreseeable future.

So, there you go.  New art.  Well, graphics.  Let's not over-inflate it, here.

Here's the evolution of the blog to date.  A moment of silence, please, for those headers no longer with us.

Before that there was no picture, and it was another site!

Good riddance.

I've got some darned cool spooky projects cooking, so keep yer eyes peeled.

P.S. Hey, those new ghosts look neat, right?  You can download a projection video of them here: www.chickenprops.com/p/spooks.html

He Chose ... Poorly

Our Halloween costumes this year: Dr. Elsa Schneider and Walter Donovan from Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade

...featuring False Grail Change-o-Face!

Did you catch the trick?  There's a UV LED flashlight hidden in the stem of the chalice to trigger the blacklight reactive makeup
