Halloween at Kimber Hollow 2014

The Kimber Hollow​ 2014 art yard haunt video is *finally* live!

You may commence “The Wednesday (Addams) Dance” or “The Mamushka” or ”Thriller”…
Whichever makes you look scarier.

Truly though, I hope you enjoy the setup. I had a bad year (medical issues) so we had to set everything up in one day so most of the details we pride our design on didn’t get outst the house.

If you’ll be in the Gainesville Florida area for Halloween night 2015, we’d love to have you stop by, snap photos with the creepy ghouls or tombstones, and… Oh yes… They’ll be a TON of candy!
#HFL!!

Halloween 2013 at Kimber Hollow!

It’s getting close to *that* time of year again! What time, you ask? Halloween, of course!

And since I just finished putting together the video for our 2013 yard haunt display, I thought I’d share it with my fellow Bionics.

This year we added a few new elements to our Halloween night “theater” production. My husband and I built and made pretty much all the props you see: the witch’s table, the fence, the tombstones, the Creeper Reaper (the tall dude with antlers), the “burning coals”, and the Apocalypse Pumpkins.

The biggest impact came from a old iron bell we found while hiking in the woods.  We used the bell as an interactive addition to the night.  Mark, a member of the Ghostfacers, had the trick or treaters ring the bell to scare ghosts away.  Hence… Jami, one of the resident ghosts, did quite a lot of running and screaming through the graveyard.

We also added the Creeper Reaper – a tall creature with large knobby hands, a bare skull, and antlers.  He loves to spend Halloween night brewing potions over hot coals.

Four Apocalypse Pumpkins joined our patch this year.  Last year, the sole resident was Erl Koenig.  The new pumpkins include: Root Bound, Malice & Chains, Collapse, and Erosion.  The tombstones and Apocalypse Pumpkins are my babies. The large pumpkins you see in the video are made from paper maché and paper maché clay. They take quite a bit of time (I’ll be starting a new one this weekend!), but it’s crazy fun to have my hands all mucked up with maché gunk. Love.

A Witch Table found its way onto Kimber Hollow’s porch.  But our witch is a tad different than most witches. She not only brews Lace Wing Flies, sells Goofer Dust to ward off hellhounds; but she also loves to write codes in binary and study lasers.

Details on our video:

  • The music is by Douglas Pipes, the song is “The Halloween School Bus Massacre” from the Trick ‘r Treat soundtrack. (Trick ‘r Treat is a film by Michael Dougherty – and a *must-see* for any Halloween fan!)
  • You can buy Pipes’ Trick ‘r Treat soundtrack on Amazon and iTunes.
  • You can watch the Trick ‘r Treat movie on Google Play or Vudu.
  • Video production by Studio Bionic.

Anyhow, I hope you enjoy the video. If you have questions on how a prop was built, please leave me a comment below. I’m always happy to help a fellow Halloween enthusiast!

Happy haunts,

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!

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!)
