I love the ghosts.

Rot said...

yeah...absolutely dig the ghosts.
great lighting too. The green on the scarecrow with the red/orange in the background look terrific.

This is really cool.

I hope nobody labels me as a plagiarist (you all will know what I mean when I post my pics) :)

Hey guys thanks to all for the comments. I must be honest, alot of it looks better in pictures. My front lawn is very small although it looks larger in the pictures. I live on a very busy road with a public transit bus route so not many get to see it since they are flying by. Some do pull over to glance which I always like. I have to give credit to Pumpkinrot for inspiring me to build my own props, the witch jars, using real branches and sticks to give it that earthy realistic touch. I also wind up hand lighting close to 25 tealights every night to set the mood. The lighting is just LED spots from Home Depot all pretty much Christmas colors but its the way you place them that can make a more dramamtic effect. I put a fire and ice LED spot on the witch this year making it look like fire glow which is pretty cool. Between Pumpkin Rot's stuff and Haunted Overload there is so much inspiration I wish I could go bigger and better. Keep up the great work guys. Love seeing all the Spooky stuff. Happy Halloween.

The lights are amazing! I have a fire and ice spotlight, but obviously I haven't played around with it enough yet. Thanks for the inspiration.

Mike, thanks for the info about how you did your lighting. We'll be purchasing two LED spotlights thanks to you! :D

The smallest yard can have the best theme and setting!

Also dont set the tealights too close to styrofoam tombstones. Whoops. Had a nice little fire going.
