Decided to BUMP this, since I myself have actually started to try and put
something together around our front door. <SHOCK>

And it's still a "work in progress", so be kind.

And is anybody out there wanting to show and tell what they have cooked
up for their outdoor Halloween display, etc?

This is our front porch, as it is.

Now turned the porch light off, and switched on a black light I put up.

Black light stuff all around the door. Not great, but I am learning.
And have to contend with a street light directly across from.... grrr.

So this is it....for now. <sighs> I have other older stuff to possibly bring out.
And orange lights, too! Hmmm....

I live in a condo, so it looks exactly the same as it always does. :lol:

I decorated my Big Red inflatable last year for Halloween, not sure what I'm gonna do with him this year but I'll come up with something if I have time, Big Red loves Halloween so I can't let him down......

Also, trick-or-treaters in mt hood need to be aware of Hitchhiking ghosts! (this is from a few years ago also, but I still like it)

I put up simple decorations, our main deal is pumpkins. Every year 12 or more pumpkins, I usually use those patterns but I always make up some on my own or just get an idea from something around. The past few years my mom has carved half of them, though, this year, due to illness, I don't think she will be able to do much, so it will be up to me.

Here's some examples, using the multi uploader:

Those are awesome! I love the Death Star pumpkin, that's great! I've never really tried the whole carving technique where you don't actually go all the through, maybe I will give it a shot this year.

it was worth the fours hours' carving - amazing!

I wanted to try using just a black light above the front porch,
but the street light across from us wasn't going to let it get
much dark, to make the glow in the dark stuff, really "glow".

So, I went back to using our trusty orange lights sets, in addition
to the glow stuff. Didn't turn out too bad, but I still would have
enjoyed it all being black light, instead.

HAPPY BOO TO ALL!

I liked this angular shot, with a bit of dark sky behind the house.

And the other way, towards the front door. Happy Halloween Everybody!

What a difference five years makes! (since I last posted here, see above)

Our rhododendrons were totally blocking the view of the front porch, so there was really no sense in
hanging lights and stuff from there. You can barely make out the regular lights string that is there, year round.

So I concentrated on the area you can still see. Around the front door.

p.s. The pumpkin has not been carved yet, so I'll post a night shot with it lit up, next week. :wink:

Got the pumpkin done, lit and out on the front porch.

We're now in the midst of candy-giving, for another couple of hours.
