The structure is wood and 6 feet tall and 9 feet wide, full of day glo offerings of flowers, liquor, bones and skulls. It's a phenomenal sight at night and through the 3D Chromadepth glasses we were handing out.
Just a quick shot of what I looked like for Beggar's Night (the trick or treat night before Halloween that we have here) that would match the outside display. It was quite chilly and windy that night, so I went for warmth over most anything else.
Costuming category really isn't the right place for this I realize, as I just pulled all the elements together rather spur of the moment, but I like.
This is my huge altar (6x9') on display in my front yard, painted in fluorescent and lit with black light which of course, looks phenomenal at night. But looks EVEN MORE incredible when viewed through the 3D Chromadepth glasses we gave out to all the trick-or-treaters. That's right..... we gave out 3D glasses to view an already existing 3D yard.
It was an electric vodou wonderland with this large altar, a swamp, boneyard and smaller altars. Again though, viewing it through chromadepth glasses was awesome!

I'm not sure this is the right category or IF there's a right category, but I did want to share what we do for Halloween.
And this is just a snapshot.... and my efforts with just a day and a broken airbrush, I made do and by the time trick-or-treaters came by; we had a full blown vodou garden in bloom with striped mannequin legs and vodou zombie vixens..... but nothing compares to what it looked like when the sun went down, fog machine on and black lights glowing!
