1. Inspiration from The Book of Life

    I saw a post on Facebook about an artist making a life sized version of this gate:

    The thing is, I'd never see this gate before. Was it from Nightmare Before Christmas? ...
  2. Gong of DOOM!

    Sound is so important.
    Even in the days of "silent" movies, there was always musical accompaniment to set the mood.
    While we all love the old "Thrilling Chilling" sound FX records, isn't it cool to find new sounds to add to our haunt's ambience?

    Having removed the eyes, I ...

    So, I decide to zombify it. It's not a terribly elaborate mod.
    I started by cutting the eye out with an X-Acto knife.

    I din't want just a hole into her head, so I used my old standby. I mixed glue and water in a 1:1 mix and tore some cotton from a cotton ball. I mixed it all up and crammed it in the eye socket ...
