Wow, that green really pops against the orange/red. Very un-traditional, and very effective!

How do you all install your lights in the heads and then mount the heads? Thanks in advance for any suggestions!

Rot said...

My heads are usually duct taped and mached to their pvc "necks."

I've always used the lighting fixtures which use those smaller bulbs..like window candles use.

I run a lot of extension cords.

Dear Rot,

just to get this straight (and mock me if I'm wrong), but you haven't told us what your haunt will be this year, right? I mean, I didn't miss the big unveil with 39 comments, did I?

Also....if you haven't yet....don't you think you ought to start sharing? I mean, it's practically Halloween. It might as well be. 21st. 31st. Same diff. I think we need a hint.

Thank you for your consideration.

Thanks Rot!
I have plenty of PVC and duct tape. It's my first attempt at a "Pumpkinrot" scarecrow.
I'm using various "natural" materials for the body and arms. I cut a bunch of Oriental bittersweet vines - some a couple of inches in diameter. They really have a cool shape! You just need to make sure you don't spread the seeds. They can really harm the trees when they spread.

Thanks again for the tip. I'll send some pictures . . .

Rot, do you put up your display on Halloween day? You know, for just-one-night-type of thing?

Rot said...

Sara,
I left the theme and some teaser photos a while back. ; )


Nah. It's going to be a surprise.
Can't you wait just a LITTLE bit longer? : D

My haunt has always been a one night Halloween only haunt.

Sorry Rot- dunno where else to drop a contact, but if you get the Penny Dreadful show in your area be sure to check out her Dreadful Hallowgreen Special with her and Dr. Gangrene.. The theme is somewhat Halloween of old and the commercialization of the holiday.. Cool old pics and plenty of fun horror host shtick!
PS my wife says to pass along that Party Light has some awesome Halloween candles this year..

Sara said...

I do sort of remember you teasing the theme. I will check, thanks!

Rot said...

Sara! HA...I never gave any hints or pics! I was joking!

Thanks Jeano Roid!

Sara said...

*glare* I thought something was up AFTER I had Googled "PumpkinRot 2010 Haunt" a bajillion times last night. lol. I only found 2009.

Notice I was too damn lazy to search through your site tags, ;)

You need a search bar, man!
