Many of the details of our Halloween decor were very similar to our party last year, so I’m not going to share those again (well that, and my dear hubby the photographer FORGOT to take pics of the evening!!!), but I do have pictures of a few of the new details:
First let me show you an addition to our food offerings. Along with dips, cookies, and the like, I put out a meat and cheese tray:
Gross, eh? I just bought a plastic skull and coated it in cream cheese and then covered that in ham. The effect was pretty great!
The hubby had several big projects that he’s been working on for quite some time. Two of them are videos that I’ll share with you tomorrow, but he also made this little addition to our Halloween collection:
This guy hung out for most of the night in the shower (until several of the hubby’s friends brought him out quite late in the evening for some *ahem* inappropriate photos). He was actually pretty easy to make. The hubby used pvc pipe, hangers, zip ties, and a store-bought skull to make the skeleton. He then used panty hose to cover the body (with socks for feet and rubber gloves for hands) and stuffed the panty hose with newspaper. Another couple layers of panty house intermixed with liquid latex and brown paint and “Ta Da!”–there you have it. A corpse!
Not that you can really tell it in this picture, but our skeleton sat for the evening in a self rocking rocking chair.
The hubby rigged a motor (I think for car windshield wipers) to a chain which was attached to the chair. When the motor’s arm rotated around, it pulled the chain which in turn pulled the chair. It was really simple, but super spooky!
And those are a few of the details from our Halloween bash. Come back tomorrow for part II!
