Dead Vampires

Or, rather, staked they're already dead I suppose.

Was looking at these old (somewhat chill-inducing/cheesy) photos and realized that you don't really see many dead vampires in yard haunts.  It'd be fun to see a line of upright coffins with a staked, skeletal vampire in each. 

A VERY long time ago, I had sketched and planned to do a "Vampire at Dawn" prop photo shoot where a vampire like the one kneeling below (but with loads more flesh on it) was on a hill at sunrise, surrounded by a circle of crosses and crucifixes.  And chained to the ground like a dog wearing a heavy chained collar.  His hand was raised blocking his face from the morning sun.  Futile, of course.  As his entire body would be emitting loads of smoke (from loads of hidden smoke bombs dropped into body cavities that were built for that purpose). 

The photo shoot that never was.

Update: Mummy Mouse

Time was 2009 the first time I reported on the Mummy Mouse at my place of work...
I noticed he was still there this week as I passed by the electrical panel where he rests.

A Severe Case Of Coulrophobia-itis-pox Syndrome

If we see clowns in places like in a circus where they belong, that's often not as scary. But if we see a clown which is already slightly odd and different to us in a place where we don't typically think they should be like the woods, it's even scarier.

The always-great Haunt of JD.  The clowns are top-notch and to see them milling about around the Haunt...I can't imagine what some little kids must have felt..  And I love how the one is wearing protective clothing and not a clown suit...  a subtle horror element for sure.
