Since I only have found 2 small sets of grapes for the total of my Carmen Miranda outfit, I have given up that dream.

The 80's thing is in full swing, and now has morphed into a pairs thing with my partner at work - Romy and Michelle at the prom! No one will know we're supposed to be ROmy and Michelle though, so we figure we'll attach post-it notes to ourselves with our names on.

I'm thinking about going as a poker playing toothless one eyed pirate who keeps picking his teeth with a bowie knife to distract others while my parrot looks over their shoulders and tells me what hands they have by using an elaborate code involving vomiting, chirping, and sea chanteys. Well thats what I'm thinking anyways.

This being the first Halloween in our new house I was inspired to "spook up" the entry area for the trick-or-treaters, of which I'm told are numerous in our neighborhood. Seems that pirates were all the rage this year, plus it's really easy to throw together pirate ensembles on the cheap, so I'm building the "Haunted Pirate Cave".

It'll have a bitchin' treasure chest over-flowing with pirate booty, a dead pirate skeleton with a sword impaling him (a la PotC ride), and an appropriately dressed "living" pirate to greet/scare the kiddies. Plus the requisite sound effects, fog machine, and various other spooky goodies.

I'm at the point where it looks really cool with the hanging (fake) flame pots inside the rocky walls at night. I haven't built anything this elaborate for Halloween in many, many years, and I'm having a great time of it. It's no Monkeyman display, but it's a fun week-long project.

BTW, any TC-ers who don't have plans and want to take a turn or two as a pirate-greeter, or just drink some rum punch, you are welcome to come over and spend the evening. We are having some fun/simple games in the driveway for the kiddies and the adults will be having an "unofficial" party in the house. We are having a few friends over (all pirates) and are reverse-engineering Martiki's fabled rum punch for our grog. I say "unofficial" because we didn't plan this as an adult party - more for the neighborhood kids, but no reason we can't all have some fun.

"Cave" under construction:



We'll try to get some good nighttime pics of the finished set to post next week. Hope you all have a fun and safe weekend.

PS: I know for a fact that Hanford will NOT be dressing up as an Otter Pop.

thats great, wish i could join you. is the booty in the chest going to be those gold foil covered chocolate coins? by any chance are you in set construction for the industry?
speaking of rocky walls, the ms, and i will be in the caveman room at the madonna inn on halloween, but i am pretty sure there will not be any pirates or rum punch.
hope the adults and kids have a blast.

Hi TT. No, I was never formally a set builder, but I did build a few sets when I was involved in independant filmmaking over 20 years ago. And no, that doesn't mean "porn".

I built miniature sets for stop-motion animation on one film (Robocop 2!) and worked in the museum exhibit biz for a bit around the same time.

I work on a computer all day as a video game artist and building something non-virtual like this again feels sooo great.

Have fun at the MI. I stayed in the "Bridal Falls" suite many years ago and it was a blast. Getting the Cave Man room on Halloween is quite a coup. Have a great time!
