Halloween! [Nov. 1st, 2007|01:32 am]

[Tags|, , , ]


I spent the afternoon decorating the porch for Halloween with stuff that I made (mostly) in the last three weeks. Then I took a GAZILLION PEEECTURES...

My Pictures. Let me show you them.

Dis here is a punkin I cut out of cardboard:



...and here it is in the dark, backlit by a light in the window. I think the shades make it scarier.



Above the punkin is the kitty I free-handed...



Kitty in the dark:



As you walk up to the house, you see this:



Wait! What's that on de stairz?



Why! It's little mousies! Waiting for candy to fall from the bowls!



Shhpooky effect! Um, yeah, I did dat on porpoise!



Turn on da flashes so we can see!



(Shpooky curtains are cut-up black garbage bags; idea courtesy of Martha Stewart. I also got the mousies and the ideas for the next two from her.)

Um, what's that thingy, hangin' by the web? OH! Eggsack.



Also, skellingtons an' batz!



AND FOG!



I dressed as a Martian Tourist!



I hear that EARTH children like CANDEEE! Have some SQUISHY BODY PARTS! They are made of JELLY and SUUUUUUGAAAAARRR!

OMG, your house looks awesome! I agree, the shades make the pumpkin look scarier. Nifty!

Wee! That would've been awesome!

That's another thing I should do next year! Invite people to come get candy and see my decorations! (I'll add it to my other post full of reminders for next year.)

Thanks!

YOur house looks AweSOME!!!! I love how the mousies turned out onthe stairs, and the uber-gross egg-sack, and the whole thing!

Sorry you didn't get as many kids as your house deserved. At this point people come to our area from other area and and park their cars to walk our block. I don't know how long that took to establish, but it's been a neighborhood with lots of children for a long time. As we get condo/yuppie-ized, we may lose the vibe over time. I'd be pretty sad about that, which is why we push to do up our house every year.

I know it's not exactly what you're hoping for, but if you want to collaborate and work together to make one Super-Duper-Big Haunted Housey thing out of our place next year, we could combine your energy on house-decor, and our neighborhood vibe to go over the top. Our house was decorated, but only half-assed-ly.

Anyway, AweSOME job on the house, and 20 kids isn't bad. Our block just has a bit of a rep now, that's all.

While collaborating would be fun, I'd like to get more spirit going on in our location.

We've been meaning to do a block party or something and I'd like to get to know my neighbors, so this is part of a larger opportunity to reach out.

But thank you for the compliments and the invite!
