Halloween 2009

It’s November!

So Halloween 2009 is over, and now we are all looking forward to Thanksgiving. Then next…I don’t even want to think about it yet.

I wound up not dressing up this year, just wasn’t feelin’ it at the time. However, The Hubbie (also soon to be known as _____.), a friend, my step-daughter, and her friend all dressed up and made the garage quite the fright fest!

We have been doing up the front yard area for the last three years, and every year its grown. This year we did up half the garage. Next year, who knows! People come by now because they know we have the scariest stuff in the neighborhood, and this year people were even stopping and taking pics! We got about between 100-125 kids this year. People actually drive to our neighborhood to trick or treat from other areas because our area rocks. :)

Now remember, I couldn’t get good pics actually showing how creepy it was in the dark. We had a black light on, a red light on and a fog machine. Also super creepy music blaring. No one moved a muscle, people had to approach them at their own risk…

The night scene with a friend playing the butcher zombie (remember this looked super cool from the street with black light and fog machine. Wish I could have captured that on camera!)

Until next year…BOO!

    So sorry you didn’t dress up! I would’ve love to seen your costume. That’s a very scary looking scene in the garage. I’m sure it was really frightening in person. Great job and it must be lots of fun to put together. Love the great job you did with the blood spatter. I watch all three CSI’s and can appreciate the job you’ve done.

    looks awesome and lots of fun! i know the kids are loving it for sure, i remember in my neighbourhood trick or treating at this one house, they set up their front lawn as a graveyard, and had a full sized coffin… the dad laid in the coffin dressed as a vampire, and you had to knock on the coffin for him to open it for you to get your candy! it was so fun, and i still remember it clearly now!

    Wow you really went all out. How fun for the neighborhood & for you all. Living in SF, I was surprised by the lack of Halloween decor in my neighborhood.
