Alright, in my other post I described the woes I had this year, but mostly pretty fun and for the most part things turned out alright.

I am thinking the high output 1200watt fogger for $60 shipped was a super cheap unit, because it gave out so fast. So, for next year, I am sorta thinking a 1700watt high end pro model.. about $300 or so. Just depends on money throughout the year, but if possible either a good Chauvet or Ansari unit.

Also love to get a few more tombstones done. I the next few days I think I'll put together some good ones. Double-thick styrofoam with a wood base and PVC frame inside. Sand them down, put good lettering and so forth. We'll see though.

Definitely want to get more powerful black lights. Since I ordered two mountable light frames with brackets, if I can find better balcklights to fit them, I'll do that.

It was windy this year too, so even if my fogger worked, it was really blowing away too quick to be very effective. If at all possible, I want to play/build with a PC fan or two and some extra ducting with a high output fogger to see if I can route it around the path and grass areas through a couple of tubes instead of just one.

I would love to get a full sized coffin, but I have no where to store it. I was thinking if I could do that, I would get in it and scare people. But sadly we don't get a lot of kids.. maybe 50 or so over a 3 hour period. I wish we had hundreds! But I amthinking a new costume is in order. Been this one for three years now. If I paint my face red, I'll look like the sith lord.. or the devil. That's what I should be, a really good siniser devil!


So what about you all?

You are my kind of man...already thinking about Halloween 2007!! We had a really good time, but I too had a little trouble with the fogger timer. Worked great on the manual mode, but that's a pain. Neighborhood kids pre-TOT party was a big hit, almost the whole street showed up, it was fun. The bad news is, back to work for me tomorrow :cry: (been off for 9 days). Oh well, it was fun. On to 2007!!

Oh yes Halloween 2007 here we come. This year was rainy and gloomy for Halloween so hopefully next year will be sunny with crisp cool air.

I do that Rosie... I start jotting down ideas and then sketch them out. They don't usually end up exactly like I draw out but it's a great starting point for me. Being as I don't know yet if I'll be living where I am now by Halloween next year I will have to keep any planning I do to a generalized area that could work with anyplace. I am glad that I have you guys to still talk to to help with the withdrawls from Halloween!

For me last halloween was a huge disapointment. I didn't plan my party far enough in advance, so we had to get a lot done in such little time and only 2 people showed up. So I started making plans for this halloween right away. I've been jotting down ideas on MS paint, keeping lists of ideas for decoration, websites, reminders ect. I've also discussed hosting a party with a friend, but I feel it's still too early to seriously get into it. We have easter coming up and we should focus on one holiday at a time.

Well I haven't posted for a while, sorry been really busy. I have a good excuse for my being busy that I think you will accept. I had to travel to pick up my HEARSE! Yes a real, honest to goodness, Hearse. It has some damage, but we will be working on it and have it ready in time for Halloween this year, hopefully. I'm still debating on a theme. Last years was a restaurant for creatures, spiders, zombies, etc. I pretended to sneak people in the backdoor. Lame I know. Anyway. That's all for now. More later when I come up with a theme or more ideas.

For me it's a return to Mill Ave in Tempe, a club street filled with costumed adults.

You know, I've always wanted to do Halloween in a bigger city, where people get dressed up and either have a parade, or just a big street party atmosphere...another Halloween dream!
