In 2005, I did a nifty display that included a 6 foot tall family crypt made out of styrofoam. Sadly, the crypt had to be dismantled after Halloween since I had nowhere to store it, but it looked awesome. One of these days, I’ll make another one. Read the rest of this entry »

Photos from Halloween 2004

This was the first year of the guillotine… which quickly became one of my all-time favorite decorations, and hopefully will be around for many years to come. Read the rest of this entry »
