Dead Vampires

Or, rather, staked vampires…as they’re already dead I suppose.

Was looking at these old (somewhat chill-inducing/cheesy) photos and realized that you don’t really see many dead vampires in yard haunts.  It’d be fun to see a line of upright coffins with a staked, skeletal vampire in each. 

A VERY long time ago, I had sketched and planned to do a “Vampire at Dawn” prop photo shoot where a vampire like the one kneeling below (but with loads more flesh on it) was on a hill at sunrise, surrounded by a circle of crosses and crucifixes.  And chained to the ground like a dog wearing a heavy chained collar.  His hand was raised blocking his face from the morning sun.  Futile, of course.  As his entire body would be emitting loads of smoke (from loads of hidden smoke bombs dropped into body cavities that were built for that purpose). 

The photo shoot that never was.

Unusual Decor for Your Halloween Village

It’s only February and I’m already thinking about my Halloween village. I was at Petsmart looking for stuff my black cat demands, and walked through the fish section. I stumbled across this awesome aquarium decor and thought some of these pieces would be interesting accents for my village. I ended up choosing the octopus because the scale was perfect for the ghost ship I already own. The pieces are expensive because they are non-toxic and stand up to being submerged in water (but still less expensive that usual Department 56 pieces). I really loved the many rock formations and gnarled tree limbs too. Some of the plants are even blacklight reactive if you wanted to have a really surreal effect. Check them out at Petsmart.
