     In November of 2008, I was exceptionally fortunate to inherit "The Haunt of Miss Rose" that Rob at had so wonderfully crafted over the previous five years or more. You can read the full story in my blog entry - "The Transplanted Rose: A Haunter's Tale."

     You can also listen to an awesome version of the story on the very first episode of Hauntcast as told by Revenant in his "News From Beyond" segment. My thanks to Rev and Chris Baker for featuring our story in their maiden voyage.

     Please visit Rob at to see more images of the original "Haunt of Miss Rose" and be sure to check out his must-read haunting tutorials on skeleton corpsing, haunt lighting and distressed clothing. They are required reading at the Haunter's Academy.

     Needless to say, I am honored and excited to carry on this renowned haunt and I am definitely looking forward to its future with us. As always, my profound and undying respect and gratitude to Rob for his generosity. He truly is one of the classiest haunters around.

     And to all the other haunters and community members who have left me posts, emails and comments with kind words of encouragement or congratulations... my humble and sincere thanks.

     I can only hope to inspire some as Rob and so many others inspired me.

House Bloodthorn 2009 - The Resurrection of Rose

Posted on November 3, 2009 at 1:15am 5 Comments

Though it seemed it wouldn't happen for much of the past few weeks, the weather improved and I couldn't have asked for a more perfect night. The moon was huge and bright. The air was crisp and still. The fog hung low. The lights burned dimly and for a few hours... the fates were with us and all was right with the world.

With over a hundred visitors, our first year with Rose was a resounding success. My humble and everlasting thanks to Rob at Skull and Bone for… Continue

The Mud Man Cometh

Posted on September 17, 2009 at 11:30pm 12 Comments

This is one of the other projects I tackled this past weekend. My very first Monster Mud (MM) prop. A Grim Reaper.

Believe it or not, this prop started out to be Rose and wasn't going to be made of MM.

Due to not yet having the proper materials to start out with, horribly improvised framing of the armature and "too many chefs spoiling the brew", I decided to… Continue

Candle, Candle Burning Bright...

Building and repair of the Haunt has commenced!

I thought I'd share one of the smaller, yet larger, projects to take on this year. That project was the faux candles that came with the haunt from Skull and Bone.

I say smaller in that, typically, PVC candles aren't very big.

I say larger by virtue of sheer numbers.

The originals from Rob were cut, grouped in some cases, and then slather-coated with "Fix-All" which is a powder that, when mixed with… Continue

House GoE Page updated

Greetings all!

I've updated the House GoE page and added a few pictures of some of my pre-Rose props. This is what I got by with for the past 3 years and used in my window displays. It's mostly to illustrate how much I've been upgraded since acquiring THoMR.

Most of the shots have been staged and lit in my garage as I never really photographed my house on Halloween due to poor camera quality for low-light conditions. I have a digital camera now and, while not the most… Continue

The Transplanted Rose: A Haunter's Tale

Posted on March 17, 2009 at 2:09am 1 Comment

As some of my fellow haunters may, or may not, be aware, this past Halloween, Rob at made the decision to end the renowned Miss Rose yard haunt that he has so wonderfully crafted over the past 5+ years.

I know a good many people have found his haunt and website to be a great source of inspiration, education and anticipation. Myself very much included. But, he felt it was time to move on to other… Continue
