Looking at your sketches I can already see this is going to be a great one again this year! I always enjoy the build up to the end result of your work every year, you're an artist! Thanks for looking and commenting. It's fun for me to share these with you guys. "I haven't done much other than brain...

Ryan - Thanks for the ideas and signs. I'll definitely use those symbols and then maybe some simple English warning. For the drum, I think I'm just going to use some foam around front to make it look like the virus has spilled out. I like the spray foam idea and some of those drums in the image look...

Mary - Welcome to the forums!

Those are some great carves and I like the lights for the photo set up.

I have never carved that Freddie pattern but always like it when I see it. Maybe this year ...

I found a different solution for what I'm doing. I used a CSS styling sheet, like Bootstrap, but a little lighter. It lets me simplify the CSS coding and I don't need to work within the admin/control panel deal. I can control the look, mobile responsive side, and feel of the content and navigation s...

Excellent! I always enjoy looking at your displays. I always comment on the fireplace and that awesome runner. I love it. I must have one :D I like the skeleton silhouette in the front door and the big spider off the front porch looks amazing in the photo from the street. The pumpkin scarecrow is fa...

I've worn the guts out of my long sleeve Laboratory shirt and could use a new one. Can I order one (S) and have you set it aside for me? I know the idea is to get the stuff out of the way and it's more work, but if I can do it all in one order, it would be better on the shipping cost.

There are usually hints in the text. I almost never get them until the blatantly obvious end. But, ... Here's my guess: For the first time in 12 years, the Zombie Pumpkins! logo is getting a redesign. No longer based on a downloadable font, the new letters will be hand drawn. If you're afraid of cha...

Do it! Pull the trigger! Let the first hint fly!

Although, I'm pretty sure it's Blood of the Zombie Pumpkins.

Ryan, I like the process as well. It's fun for me to flip through pictures starting with design sketches, then step 1, 2, paint and bam! some sort of fun prop. When, I show people the full set of photos, they start to understand why I start working on Halloween in July :) Most of the time, storage i...

So, the title of the thread is a spoiler, but this year's theme is ... Zombies! I haven't done much other than brainstorm some decorating ideas, but here are the design sketches: The corner photo spot the oil drum that I'll use as the zombie virus drum https://i.imgur...
