It appears that these scenes are on your porch, not sure I've ever seen a view from your street or driveway. Do you detail the setting with all those leaves on your porch or is that not on your porch? Besides all the props it's that kind of detailing that really sells it I think. Amazing!

You have an awesome spot for your haunt. Everything put into one area so the senses can be overwhelmed.

I think that is my problem with my haunt. I spread it too far out, and it loses its effect.

Thanks : )

Mark, yep, that's the porch.
and I try to frame out as much of "reality" as possible. I've found that the more I do this, the less I can stand seeing things like porch beams or brick walls or siding.
I'll probably turn into some tiny old man decorating an isolated spot in the woods....to remove the human element.
: )

We start stealing leaf bags in early October to pour onto the porch...gotta have tons of leaves.

Its almost like your designing a giant diorama. I need a large porch so bad!

I suggested to my wife doing that very thing in nearby woods this summer, which she thought sounded quite insane.


... I'm definitely doing it.

Nice photos. I was contemplating taking neighbors bagged leaves for the lawn this year, but passed. Although ours is completely different, I remembering commenting to the husband that we had a great porch for Trick or treat. It was more of a logistics thing than aesthetic, but I'm happy with it.

I have this mental problem where I look at things more fondly after they have happened. I tend to obsess with everything being perfect when I am actually in the moment. It's very frustrating..

You looking back titled triggered this!
