Holiday at the Mansion, Pt. 1

Welcome to the Haunted Mansion, Jack Skellington-style. We all have our opinions on the Holiday makeover; I prefer the regular version, but this annual dressed-up version is still a fun change.

This would have been cooler if the pumpkin was throwing up seeds! Too much? Perhaps. I like things a little funky, though.

WHAT?!? Zero days? So little time for shopping.

Inside the foyer, plenty of little touches to show that the Mansion is slightly different. Who but Tim Burton would think of combining Halloween and Christmas?

This time, I managed to get all four "portraits" in the elevator:

and the "after" versions (not necessarily in the same order):

Let the digital effects begin:

The hanging skeleton is still in the attic…

albeit via a digital effect:

I think that's enough for one day, don't you?

More Jack, Oogie, and Hattie at my main website.

Of course I love the regular Haunted Mansion, but the holiday overlay is a nice change and very well executed. Excellent job capturing the elevator portraits and Jack Skellington projection. I always look forward to your yearly Haunted Mansion Holiday updates. Thanks, Dave.

Dave, thanks for sharing this fantastic collection of Holiday Mansion photos. I started with "farewell Sally" and ended up at the beginning -- you have such camera skill (and your camera has a lot more skill than mine). I knew I could just relax and enjoy the ride this October and not try to take photos, knowing that you'd fill in the blanks! Wonderful. HM Holiday is not my Christmas fave, but you make it look good -- and without having to hear all those flowers la la la ing in the hallway, too.
