Kingdom Cemetery

You just can't beat a traditional cemetery.  Mind you, this is the one at the Haunted Mansion, but I've seen folks make home versions with foam stones which look just as good if not better.  Which brings up foam.  I'm a man who detests being near styrofoam.  And those small white dots that break off and get stuck to everything and everyone?  Awful.
So no foam gravestones for me.

Have you tried the blue or pink foam? Not as "popcornny" and you can get better detail due to its denser construction.

Plus it always looks kinda cool when you blow your nose after carving blue foam!!

ha...the dreaded popcornnyness.

and that's funny. Never heard anyone else reference the nose-blowing side-effect of being a Haunter.
That happens with black spray paint...and with spreading piles of leaves....

Can't imagine what else i've breathed in over the years.

Foam tombstones are a curse for me. Off the shelf, they usually come with tiny cheap
Plastic Stakes a butterfly could knock over. So you automatically have to reinforce them. Those haunters who make their own tombstones are true artists.

agreed.

If every summer you find yourself coughing up blood with bits of Styrofoam in it - you just might be a haunter.

Also, for those with an interest in recreating the Haunted Mansion's interior graveyard:

I actually found a really cool wooden grave marker design on pinterest a while back, had a cross pattern cut into it and a candle tucked in there. If I ever were to do a cemetery I would lean towards that sort of thing for the majority, had a peeling white paint look to it, very rustic.

As someone that deals with a LOT of foam. I completely understand. You can never clean that stuff up. It gets everywhere. :D
