Gothic Red Leaded Glass Candle Sconces Updated

We purchased some battery powered flame effect black filigree wall sconces as an experiment for using somewhere in the haunt. We didn't care for how they looked on their own, but because the sconces are merely just mounting holders for the actual lights, we tried the lights solo in our circa 2003 Gothic red leaded glass candle sconces. Way better effect than ordinary candles! Our tall pedestal props with these on top should look good on either side of the front door on our porch for Halloween.

Prop Building Begins

We have a couple major prop builds for this year's haunt theme, so trying to knock out some of the smaller ones early. Still waiting for the weather to improve so we can get outside and start spray painting some props!

Tormented Souls Prop Mock-Up

"Tormented Souls" mock-up for the "Hell Hole" prop that will be built later this summer. These are the 5 small skeletons we used along our home's roofline for our 2019 Halloween yard haunt. Needed to get an idea of scale using these skeletons to figure out the diameter for the "Hell Hole" opening and the overall height of the prop. Only 188 days until Halloween. 🎃
