This is my entry for the second (and last) round of Bones' Haunted Halloween Contest. I chose to build for the "Trick This" category.
About this creation
One light and cheerful Halloween afternoon, a group of kids decided to go trick or treating early and get some extra candy. Unfortunately, they decide to stop at an old abandoned mansion on the outskirts of town.
Not knowing they were being watched, the kids walked happily down the street.
They all climbed up on the porch...
... and knocked on the door. When no one answered, they sauntered right in.
The bravest first; most scared last.
They were soon all scared half to death when they saw the inside of the mansion.
The first gruesome sight was a figure laying on the floor in front of the fireplace with a top hat over his face and a spear through his torso.
The (idiot) kid dressed as a BMX biker decided to be dumb and take the top hat off of the man's face. Can you say STUPID!!!???
The kids scream in terror as the dead man's decomposed face is revealed.
Running away from the corpse on the floor, the children search the rest of the mansion. (When will they learn?!)
The kid dressed as a bowler (also dumb) decides to open the chest with blood dripping from it. *sigh* (told you it was gonna be bad)
The contents of the chest turn out to be two skulls, another spear, and two pistols. (really, HOW STUPID ARE THEY)
Just then, a pack of bloodthirsty ghouls charges toward the kids!
The kids sprint out of the mansion, leaping off of the porch and hiding.
When it looks like the kids have no chance and are trapped,...
...the ghouls start laughing a high - fiving each other. The lead ghoul and a man that seems to suddenly appear, shake hands.
The man introduces himself as Mr. McMoneypants; head of a leading TV show, called "Let's See Who We Can Scare Half-to-death"!
Mr. McMoneypants and the oldest kid, the BMX biker, shake hands.
The kids still look confused until Mr. McMoneypants...
In the back of the house there's a special knob that you pull to reveal...
A spider below the fireplace in the basement.
Left side window. (exactly the same as the right side window)
Upstairs window (although there really isn't an attic)
Chimney spewing fire.
Turret (same as on other side)
Left side of the interior of the mansion.
Middle of the inside of the mansion.
Right side of the inside of the mansion.
I hope you all enjoyed my entry for the second round. I put alot of effort into this, so I hope I score well! I also know that the fireplace being exposed in the back looks horrible, but screwed up and didn't realize it until 5 layers up on the wall, so there was no way to fix it. Also, the spider is on a sled, on a track, which is connected to the rod, which is connected to the knob. If any of you followed that, then you should know how the spider coming out works. =P
PLEASE RATE AND COMMENT, AND HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!!! =0)
Nice work Evan! I hope you havn't forgot about the SWLC tournament. Round 1 ends on Thursday so you better get building.

OMIGAWD! TEH TREE IS GREY! AHHH! Wow, nice work on this! A shame it was DQ'd. Since MocPages runs Eastern time, I'm assuming that you live in the western U.S and posted on Halloween there, but MocPages time said it was November. It's happened to me, too. I love all the details here, though. Great job!
This is a neat build! The story is thrilling with a great twist and you clearly put in a lot of work. I like the design of the protruding walls around the door, very cool. Sorry it was posted too late for the contest, but at least you had fun!
I can see you have put a lot of efford into it. The story is well told and there are many interesting details. Even though you are a little bit too late, maybe the judges will rate your MOC anyway. Best of luck and good work.
