The Yard of the Living Dead 2011

Here are some shots of The Yard of the Living Dead taken late Halloween night.

Everything looked pretty good this year.  Our display is still fairly small; but we spent a lot of time doing things the right way.  Our cemetery fence looks authentic, is strong, and can be reused year after year.  We ditched the cardboard tombstones and replaced them with styrofoam tombstones that look better and last longer.  We spent time creating a satisfying fog effect.  All in all I think we have a good foundation to build upon in the coming years.  Next year I would like to create a more integrated LED lighting system and incorporate sound as well.  I want to finish the corpses that I started this year and my wife wants to add some cemetery gates and an archway.  Lots to do and my wife has made me promise not to procrastinate on anything.  This blog will be the place where I post pictures and progress reports on preparations for The Yard of the Living Dead 2012.  Thanks to everyone who checked out my blog this year.  I promise to make next year even more entertaining.

I like your lighting and your tombstones are fantastic. It sounds like you are really ramping things up.
