Halloween 2012 at Kimber Hollow

There’s only 63 days until Halloween 2013… not that I’m counting or anything. I start dreaming of Halloween around June and by the end of August I’m really getting excited. So to kick off my Halloween prep, I finally got around to uploading a video of our 2012 yard haunt…

The decorations are 95% DIY homemade and we design the display to be friendly to all ages. No blood, gore, etc. The “theme” is very much influenced by Disney World’s Haunted Mansion ride – which sparked my love of Halloween way back when I was a tiny Bionic Baby.

Our graveyard features tombstones inspired by some of our favorite media such as: Harry Dresden from The Dresden Files book series; Milo Rambaldi from the tv show, Alias; Madame Leota from the Haunted Mansion ride; Alfred Hitchcock; and Casper the Friendly Ghost.

For Halloween 2013 we are adding a “Kimber Hollow” cemetery sign, a new tombstone (sneak peeks will be posted soon!), and improving on our existing props and design.

If you have any questions on how-to create something you like in the video, feel free to contact me or post your question in the Comments section below!

Boo y’all,

P.S. The music is “Haunted Mansion Organ” melody by Disneyland Records & used under creative fair use. No infringement intended. (If you’re a Halloween fan, the Haunted Mansion soundtracks are a must-buy!)
