Zombie Prom 2005
October 31st, 2005 by Jessica

Happy Halloween everyone! I’d like to take a moment to share a few photos from tonight’s festivities. It was lots of fun getting the reactions from the neighbors! They all remembered our Haunted Maze from last year, and many commented on how they love coming to our house each year to see what we’ve done. 

Here is the front entrance. We set it up in the garage like the Maze last year. Notice that you can’t see too much from the road. The headstones were handmade by me and Andrew two years ago. They are styrofoam carved with a dremel using computer-generated templates, painted with black latex and coated with granite spraypaint. They look quite realistic up close.

Andrew and I are toasting to the visitors with our skeleton friends. Notice the girl skeleton is toasting too! The flashlight in the middle is actually pointed up at a disco ball. We had loud rock music (Thriller, Dead Man’s Party, etc etc) playing in the background. It was quite a scene!

Here I am, glowing in the blacklite. It took me about a half an hour to wash all the hairspray (Rave super hold and blacklite spray) out of my hair. Notice the prosthetic cuts with blacklite nail polish painted on. I will NEVER wear prosthetic pieces and flesh latex again! That stuff was very uncomfortable, hot, and it hurt like a you-know-what to peel it off (even with remover).

Here are two of our favorite skeleton friends, hanging out at our Zombie Prom. They were a hit with the parents especially, many of which decided to pose their poor blinded children in front of the scene with a digital camera and horrifically bright flash. Now, who wants to vote on whether THOSE pictures actually turn out? Yeah, I don’t think so.

I must admit it was more work than it should have been, for such a short about of time (5:30pm-8:00pm and only about 100 kids). Two people should only put that much planning into their wedding… My goodness. Next year will be much less effort, if anything at all! We’re getting burned out on Halloween.
