I got an update to the Cemetery Fence.

Cemetery Sign

Posted a new page to describe my sign process, I’m happy with the way it is turning out, even if it wasn’t the same as my initial design, but I like the evolving process and how everything is coming together for this year.


Check out the sign process here…

Concepts and Sketches

I am a visual person, I like to see things, that way I can have a little more faith in myself and the project at hand. Though it’s too early in the season to know if I pass or fail, can I make this happen, I am hopeful and positive. So for this years I drew out first a light sketch then did some work in illustrator to show my plans, or prop ideas. Also I’ll link to the sites that I got my ideas from.

Graveyard Sign Concept (Illustrator)


Here is the concept for the Graveyard sign, originally I was going to do a column design, but with finances not being awesome, and time always an issue, I made changes. This was mostly because we found a pallet driven fence design, which since I found all these places who are will to give away pallets, cost next to nothing and has a really nice look. I will put up photos of the sign and fence progress as I get them.

Halloween 2008 – Morumen Cemetery

Posted in Halloween 2008 on September 8, 2008 by bonefide

Halloween 2008 is on its way. Though it will take years for my haunt to get anywhere’s near where I want it to be, this is a good start. Last yr was last minute, and not that much. This year I hope to bring it to a whole new level. Really my goal some day is to have a haunted hayride and house, but for now, I’ll stick to the front yard.

This year’s haunt brings us to the Morumen Cemetery (say it while placing spaces after each syllable). I’m excited. It’s still going to be simple, doing a graveyard, duh. We will have an entryway with a custom sign, a pallet fence (I will post photos when I make them); I want to have a body bag candy dispenser and a glowing casket, which is already almost done. Add some music and fog and we’re just about there. Also there will be the grave keeper who will be making his rounds on Halloween night. We may even get a visit from Jason Voorhees again this year, but that is not confirmed.  

I am very excited for this yr, I really hope it comes out well; everyone is involved from my family. My girlfriend and I even spent a romantic day building a coffin, which by no fault of my own happens to fit her to the inch. Soon we plan on having a gravestone party so we can get those made. I will update the site as often as I can with the progress that is being made.
