Halloween 2009 prop making has offically started!

Our friend Dan carved 2 coffin cruiser tombstones for us this weekend so we mounted backs, shaped and painted them.

These were supposed to be done last October but we didn't get to them. We wanted to get them done before car show season this year.

We are teaching Skeleton Cage making at FFNW this summer so I wanted to practice making one to take notes on what I am going to have to prep for. Also tried a new finishing technique. Using Great Stuff foam insulation we covered the aluminum bar and then painted it with flat black spray paint.

Hauntcon Costume Ball

Here is the photo they took of us for this years costume ball. There was a photo stand as you entered the ball and everyone got a copy of their photo during the evening. Wish we had copies of some of the other costumes.

Another Great HAuNTcon!

We just got back from our trip to Milwaukee, WI to attend another Haunted Attraction National Tradeshow & Convention.

There was so much to do and people to meet we don't even know where to begin. We saw tons of really good haunted houses. We attended a fantastic costume ball. We gave a seminar on building your own 3-axis bucky skull. We attended some very good educational seminars. We spent an entire day watching the Bad Boys Scenic design group build a Crypt scene in a day with a little help from us once in awhile. We stayed up way too late in a few hospitality suites. We sampled the local Wisconsin food. We are tired but fired up about halloweeen now that we are back.
