Halloween 2014: Who You Gonna Call?

Just a few more weeks to Halloween so time for the hard press.  This year's theme is Ghostbusters. We decided on it earlier this year as a tiny homage to the late, great Harold Ramis. Egon but not forgotten.

The Stay Puft Marshmallow man was purchased and the skeletons are old favorites. Everything else was created for this year.  I'm especially loving the hovering specters we made using some pvc pipe, chicken wire and cheese cloth.

The kids who pass by seem to enjoy it and I'm pleasantly surprised just how many young kids have seen Ghostbusters which is turning 30 years old this year!  Note to those parents: You are doing it right!

Now its time for party prep!

  3. Ghostbusters is one of my all-time favorite movies, bravo! ("Okay, so, she's a dog.). I'd love to see how those pipe-cheesecloth ghosts were created. As an aside, do you ever get concerned about your decorations getting stolen? (Just curious, FWIW I live thousands of miles from you). :-)

    1. I am concerned enough to tie everything down very well. Not to say it couldn't be removed if someone really tried hard but obviously they would risk being discovered in the time it would take to untie. So either we have been very lucky for all these years or I'm a really good at knots :)

    1. I just made it out of plywood. It wouldn't be too difficult to recreate.

  23. Love the homage to the movie. Carnival and Insane asylum are still my favorites, but probably best to go a little lighter with the little one around. Look forward to your Halloween post every year, and still have the party deets to look forward to. Thanks for always being inspiring!!!

  31. Hey there! Just stumbled on this post while trying to plan my Ghostbusters Halloween party this year. We have a round bay window just like yours!

    How did you attach your inflatable Puft man to the window? Thanks for the tips!
