Devil and the White City Ghost Tour

I'm a sucker for ghost tours. Today we are doing on that promises to be creepy. I'll post stories and pictures of it afterwards.

Who's Got a Good Presentation Idea?

We've all learned how to splatter blood. . . apply zombie make-up . . . create a scare with misdirection . . . Now, we want to see something exciting and new like . . . like. . . like . . .

WHAT? What do you want to see?!

ECHC is reaching out to it's members for presentation ideas. If there's something you want to learn more about, or how to build, now is the time to tell them. They are hard at work putting together the best darn Gathering for us they can. We can help by giving them our thoughts on kicking presentations.

If you have ideas, feel free to either post them in the comments section and I'll pass them along. Or, visit their page on Facebook.

A Haunter's Coming! A Haunter's Coming!

It's so rare that any of the east coast haunters make it Chicago that I get totally geeked out when one does!

ECHC's co-founder, Pam, is coming here this weekend. We already have a few fun things planned. . . like a cemetery day. . . and a haunted tour. . . and a visit to the tiki bar . . . ok, that last one isn't hauntcentric, but, it will still be fun.

We'll make sure to take plenty of pictures of any haunted type places we go to and post them here.

And. . .YIPPIE!!!!

Stay tuned. . .

I'm hoping that tomorrow the crowds will thin and I can get pictures of some more stuff without those meddling attendees around.

UPDATE: I made it back to the show, but, only for about a half hour and then only to say bye-bye to people. Others say they'll send me pictures and I'll get those up.

Few things that caught my eye . .

More TW Godness

The first one is sorta hard to see. Unfortunately, it's so large that there's no good way to video it and not see the folks walking by reflected in the glass. But, if you can focus on the hungry zombie, it'll be worth it.

That one was REALLY cool! When the window breaks, not only did the wind blow at you, but, you also get sprayed with water.

Hanging out at Transworld

I'm here and barely survived the first night. Those Mystery Manor scoundrels kept me up and drinking until 5 am.

I finally hauled my cookies out of bed and went over to the show. There are some great things this year. I'll start with what I think mayve been my favorite booth. It had all kinds of creepy dolls doing creepy things. Check it out . . .
