No Fear!!! (Pic)

Thankfully my kids have begun to build up a bit of a tolerance to "Scary" (Parentheses imply sarcasm) stuff...I would rather my girls grow up to understand real and fake...I don't want them to be afraid of their own shadow...

My cemetery sign...what do you think?


His name is "Twisted Jack"...


View from the street during the day...I will be adding a few more things...spider webs on the fence and other little things...


The ground breaker I made out of paper mache...he has a pvc frame with tubing used for the ribs...then just layered on the paper mache...I will admit I had to buy the skull wasn't in the mood to make one...


Ground breaker...I think he looks awesome...super stoked that he turned out the way he did...


He is weather proofed...he has two coats of water proof paint...than two layers of outdoor paint...then finished off with two coats of spar urethane...fingers crossed he won't be destroyed...


I think he needs a name...what do you think?


View through the fence...


Twisted Jack in all his glory...


Dracula and Jason with "Twisted Jack" in the background...


View from the street...


Here it is in all its glory...what do you think?
