Scaring the children...Hallowe'en 2006.

Postby Spazmogen on Tue Oct 31, 2006 10:11 pm

Did I go overboard with the pumpkins this year?

Some people do up the front lawn like a graveyard etc. Not me, yet.

I just carved 3 pumpkins and most of the smaller kids did not want to come to my door because of them.

Perhaps next year I'll do up the driveway/lawn like a homicide scene with real police caution tape from work, blood spatter up the garage door etc.

The daylight (puking pumpkin) shot was from a trial run in the afternoon. The older kids loved that one. I wanted to cut a hole in the back and rig up a strobe light to shine out the front through the fog, but Wifey thought I was crazy to begin with...

Smoke effect was 18lbs of dry ice & lots of hot water. I actually had to throw away about 2lbs of the dry ice, I just couldn't use it fast enough as it was.

I love the puking pumpkin. We didn't carve any this year. Just never got around to picking any up.

Why would any little kids be scared of that? When I was that age, I would have been thrilled. :D

Kids are wusses these days. They get scared and offended easily.
