Once she had Charles hooked on the creation of special effects, it was "all go", with an absolutely amazing result. "Devonside" was truly turned into a House of Horrors.
This skeleton hung from the ceiling.
There were eyeballs, intestines and brains to "feel", and a dead man's hand in a bowl of popcorn!Needless to say, we ran out of "treats" well before the kids stopped coming, but no one seemed to mind. They thoroughly enjoyed the entertainment!
This ghost floated down from high in the trees on a flying fox-type wire that Charles had rigged up.
The kids were pretty scary too!!
No wonder these characters below looked so real - they were!! And now they are enjoying well-earned rest, with a beer and footie on TV, after an evening of terrifying little kids!
Brett the "Mummy" (centre) had spent the evening jumping out of the coffin, while Raewyn and Mal had been busy surprising everyone downstairs.
