MLP: The Haunted Mansion - Graveyard Scene

Well I have to say that this is by far the biggest project I've made. All the Haunted Mansion stuff I've made in the past has been leading up to this emense feat. Hope you enjoy the end result as much as I am.

Mane, tails, some accessories and animals sculpted by me using Crayola Model Magic.
Polished with Sally Hansen.

When the crypt doors creak, and the tombstones quake
Spooks come out for a swinging wake
Happy haunts materialize
And begin to vocalize
Grim Grinning Ghosts come out to socialize

Now don't close your eyes and don't try to hide
Or a silly spook may sit by your side
Shrouded in a daft disguise
They pretend to terrorize
Grim Grinning Ghosts come out to socialize

As the moon climbs high o'er the dead oak tree
Spooks arrive for the midnight spree
Creepy creeps with eerie eyes
Start to shriek and harmonize
Grim Grinning Ghosts come out to socialize

When you hear the knell of a requiem bell
Weird glows gleam where spirits dwell
Restless bones etherialize
Rise as spooks of every size
Grim Grinning Ghosts come out to socialize

Since we have the Graveyard Scene here, are we going to expect other scenes from the ride, like the attic, Madam Leota's séance, and the Ballroom?

I haven't planned of doing anything else with the Haunted Mansion, but it's always fun to think about. I've decided to focus on other rides for future displays.

This is genuinely the best pony-themed scene I've ever seen (unless someone does a Pirates of the Caribbean/pony-themed scene *wink wink*).

I believe the two ponies at the table in the center are the bride and groom, and the three in the bottom right are obviously the Hitchhikers, and if I'm not mistaken I see Twilight's owl in the trees, but I have one question: where is the Hatbox Ghost? Shouldn't he be among the festivities?
SilverBand7's avatar
Thanks! Since the character originally appeared in the attic scene, I decided to leave him out. I have made him individually here: The Hatbox Ghost

Though they are technically aren't part of the Graveyard Scene, I did include the Hitchhiking Ghosts because they're such a stable to the ride and so recognizable.

That's amazing. I did see your pony version of the Hatbox Ghost and I must say, like everything else here, even if the two teamed up together, Hasbro and Disney couldn't have done a better job here. But is the couple at the table in the center of the graveyard the bride and groom? Or are they some random ghost couple? And if this is the graveyard scene, shouldn't the elderly caretaker and his bony beagle be here too?

Thank you again! the couple at the table are supposed to be a random ghost couple, although I've heard people refer to them as a duke and duchess. Here's a picture of them for the ride:…

For this photo above, I replaced the caretaker and dog with Peanut Bucker, the mascot for TrotCon, along with her cat, Larson. I have since replaced them with the caretaker and dog. 

They can be seen here from my Twitter feed:……

Huh, they look incredible. I actually noticed that Silas Crump (the Caretaker's name) has a Union Army/US Cavalry-style hat as compared to his human counterpart. I like this one better.

Now all we need is Madame Leota!

I wonder what would happen if Twilight, her friends, and maybe Luna perhaps wandered over to the old mansion at night...

Damn! May I ask how long this took?
SilverBand7's avatar
It took about 3-4 months to complete.

Damn! Now that is dedication! 
I got the chance to see this in real life at BronyCon 2015.

This might be one of the coolest things I've seen in a while

Wrong attraction. Opened around the same time, though!

I know it's from Pirates of the Caribbean but it's appropriate (especially since their right next to each other, at least in Disneyland) ;) I love em both
