I took some video of the outside this evening with my camera phone – in 4 installments. I’ve never taken video with my phone before and uploaded it to YouTube but I did tonight. Don’t even ask why I did it that way. Probably because I didn’t want to try it with my regular camera or put a new disc in my video camera until everything is set.
These are just preliminary. I sill have a few more static props to display plus my coffin and rocking Mrs. Bates. I’ll be getting those out tomorrow and should be finished by Saturday or Sunday the latest. Of course, I’ll be adding music and fog. Hey, it’s not Halloween YET!
Hurricane Sandy is headed our way and she’s expected to start pouring her heart out in our area this weekend. I hope not. I’m getting up very early in the morning, going down to my laboratory and finish the last of my props. I will probably post some still shots by Saturday and save the final video for Halloween.
Crossing my fingers the storm doesn’t ruin Halloween for the TOTs this year. It’s bad enough it Halloween is on a schoolday – if it rains I might not get anyone but the neighbors ringing my bell.
One last thing; I haven’t decided on a costume yet! Ha ha, nothing like leaving minor details like that till the last minute! I’ve already had a handful of kids come into our cul-de-sac checking out the props and tombstones. They said they love coming to see what I have each year because nobody else in the neighborhood really decorates for Halloween. My pleasure is not so much in the decorations as in scaring the kids. I’ve startled quite a number of them over the years (only the older ones). The little ones I throw in the cauldron for a snack if they get out of line!
Soon children, very soon…
