Carnevil Post Screams

So the CarnEvil was a huge success. We were pleasantly surprised with the turn out. Both from the neighborhood and in volunteers.
The night was filled with screams from both kids and adults alike. We had no more then our fair share of smart ass cynics but we dealt with them accordingly. We sent an evil clown with a chainsaw roaring down the tunnel after them. We had little girls clutching their friends and making them go deaf with the disciple levels from their screams exceeding maximum safety levels. We had adults clutching their children and practically running through. We even got a chance to swing a chainsaw at the Former Mayor of Ottawa. Jacky was a good sport. The tear down went quickly to spite the weather conditions worsening and we are all cleaned up and ready for round two. On to next years designs.

So what do you think guys? What are your ideas for next years theme? Haunted maze? Haunted forest? Classic horror sets? Whats your poison? Tell us what you’d like to see us do for next years Halloween show.

And don’t forget to check out our Carnevil!IMG_5941hh



Setting up our Carnevil

It’s been a while since we’ve set up a proper Halloween display. We decided that this is the year to get back into the swing of things.

We set up a full tunnel and covered bridge haunted walk. We built it out of reclaimed fencing and steel caging. Everything is black light reactive with the 6 black lights and dozen or so strobe lights. We have a team of 10 actors dressed as demonic and creepy killer clowns. We have various creepy carnival sound effects and music. The best is that one of our clowns has a chainsaw and comes and slams it against the fence. Don’t worry: no blade. ;) years ago we had made cemeteries, and gallows and things of that nature. But this one takes up the whole yard and incorporates actors and scarecrows and good old fashioned scares. Grab your best costume and come on out.

Keep an eye on our contest on the Ottawa Gothic Designs page on  Facebook. Hope to see you all there!
