The middle years! We've been doing Halloween scenes and graveyards since our junior year in high school. In college, we honed our "craft" by working at a volunteer Haunted House with our college chapter of Circle K International. Each year, we would spend hours building sets and scaring patrons - all for charity. When we moved to CA, we saw no reason not to do something similar at our new home.
Here you can see some picts. of our modest beginnings. We created false walls and a cemetery gateway. The dragon's heads spewed smoke at trick-or-treaters regularly. And, the coffin was made from parts from an old waterbed.
