Off to bed with me now.

Hope you had a magical one--I'm sure you did. Where there is Halloween, there is Pumpkinrot magic.

Awesome job, man. These will become the images in my head when I think "Halloween".

I couldn't agree more... mine was excellent too! Happy Halloween, Mister Rot!

You call this thing modest??!!

Absolutely incredible, methinks!
Old school, traditional, colorful, and just plain gorgeous! I love that you are painting your new canvas with such fantastic halloween creatures and colors!

I LOVE it!

Love it! How fun. Especially the fog and Jackos. And you did a Jack O Lantern TREE!! :D Awesome.

Hope you had lots of ToT'ers! :)

OctoberHaunt said...

Congrats on haunting the new home! You continue to be an inspiration. Thanks for sharing all of your great work. Happy Halloween to you both!

Rot said...

Thanks!

We had a good turnout.
Not as many as at the old location, but that suits me just fine. A relaxed and really peaceful atmosphere.

This street loves Halloween...lots of houses playing Halloween music and decked out with strings of lights and fun decorations.

It was great to be able to walk around during trick or treating hours.

We dig it here.

The orange and purple lighting looks fantastic. I'm still fiddling around with blue. So much to learn about the lighting.

You are the holy grail of Halloween and as always, put forth stunning, creepy, imaginative stuff.

Looking forward to the rest of the gallery.

Bindlegrim said...

Your photos and the colors are perfect Halloween magic! Wow, can't wait to see more and loving the Halloween tree!!!

After days of snow here, it all melted and warmed up, and was perfect weather with whispered breezes and even a shooting star went by as I was out taking photos.

Happy Halloween!

Rowan said...

The pictures are stunning, you are my hero! Looking forward to seeing the rest of the photos.

Jeff said...

Very, very cool. Old school, stunning!

We had about 40-50 ToTs here at our new home...in an hour, but that in a steady rainstorm. Made my version of "sentinals", a witch and a few groundies. Most common question "How did you do...THAT?", to which I simply directed to our sign which at the bottom reads:

Inspiration, techniques, overall freakin awesomeness derived from the master:

PUMPKINROT.COM
flanked by "appleseed" and "corn witch".

Ooohs and ahhhs followed.

Thank you. In all honesty, I have three kids and for two months at various times everyone has been involved, eager and excited. Thats not easy to do with two teens, a ten yr old, a PS3, 360, cell phones, friends, sports...and Steeler's and Pens games. It's cool to have them all here at once period, but when "family movie night" becomes "lets make groundbreaker heads instead", well it brings a tear.

Anyway, thanks again, display is everything we've come to expect and much, much more. Enjoy the season.

Brian M said...

Love the Jack-O-Lantern tree. Must be incredible in person.

Can't wait to see more.

Autumnleaf said...

Absolutely inspiring as usual. Omg I LOVE the jol tree. Wonderful colors and ambiance!

ShellHawk said...

Amazing, as always, Rot. Can't wait to see the rest of the gallery!

Mr Black said...

Wonderful as always. Your work is straight out of the underworld.

Mantan Calaveras said...

Having watched Swamp Foetus, that witch really gives me the hibbly jibblies. I don't think I could look her in the eye... sockets.

Rot said...

Yeah...she sees us each as a potential Swamp Foetus.

Haunted Eve said...

Terrific photos, as usual! Got to build ourselves one of those hanging cauldron thingies for next year.

wicKED said...

Absolutely stunning! The tree is just amazing! Can't wait to see every little detail in your upcoming posts! Speaking of posts, I linked to your great video on my last blog entry. Here is the link if you care to see.

Again, fantastic job! You give me new heights to aspire for next year.

Johnny said...

Wow! Epic. Love the tree!

K.O. said...

Wow! That's some great fog you got going on this year. Beautiful stuff.

ArchaeologyAnna said...

Wow, those are amazing images!!!! I wish I had found this before my Poe Party this year. Next year I am doing Sleepy Hollow and I will have to use these images as ideas! Thanks, Anna
