As usual, I’m behind in posting. Some of this – a lot of this – is due to the fact that I’m really not used to working full time + working on a haunt. Also, there’s a Pretty Cool Something lurking in my maybe-future that has thrown me into a bit of a work panic.
So. Let’s see..where were we? Last time y’all checked in, the haunt looked like…
I’m very very very pleased to say that’s not the case anymore. (And oh! *takes note of that box in pic #2) ..now I know where to look for that particular prop! Yay!)
So the two storefronts are now filled with maze, which has inspired a small sigh of relief from us…and which is pretty much impossible to photograph. The first half of the haunt is mostly painted; the second half is probably further along than it seems. We’re waiting on a few more supplies to really fill it out. But here! This part is pretty.
The first part of this year’s show is mansion-esque, and in an attempt to do something different, I’ve learned how to paint wood grain. I may be a bit addicted at this point. It’s a pretty dang cool effect.
A big chunk of this year’s painting is me trying to remember what the heck I did last year and painting stuff to sorta match last year’s stuff. I’m having varying amounts of success with that, and Bones is getting used to hearing me say, “Well, I don’t hate it,” which indicates I’m as done as I’m gonna get and I’m moving on to the next project.
But dang y’all. I kinda wanna wood grain every damn scene.
Also? There are a BUNCH of organs for sale in this area for around $50. And I’ve found a player piano for $150. It’s a very very good thing that (a) we don’t live in our Forever Home, (b) I don’t have the money to run around buying organs, (c) I don’t have a vehicle that can easily carry an organ, and (d) I really don’t have a way of hiding a bunch of organs in our home. Because I’m pretty sure Bones would notice. Alas.
(And no, I don’t actually play beyond basic scales and such. What’s your point??)
(And, um, yes I already have two. That doesn’t mean I don’t want more. Shush with the logic, you.)
