Getting in the Cemetery Spirit of Things

Posted in Creative Inspiration, Halloween Related, Planning with tags , , , on October 24, 2010 by bojo

Stopped by a couple local cemeteries yesterday and took some photos. My plan is to print them and replace any framed images in the house with these. I did a little playing around with them to make them more interesting.

This one is only about 30 years old, but looks much older.

Second Tombstone Almost Finished

Posted in Props with tags , , on September 5, 2010 by bojo

Just about finished with my second-ever tombstone. The epitaphs are all from “Cemetery Gates” by Pantera.

Tombstone #2

I think I’ll start a coffin tomorrow.

My First Tombstone! (Update: Finished)

I’ve never made a tombstone, and although it’s not finished, I’m having fun with this. It’s made of only 1/2″ thick Foamular, but I’m thinking about addin some side pieces to make it more three-dimensional.

It's about 4' x 2'

 Update: Here’s the finished stone.
