Happy Friday the 13th with new Paranormal Projections!

Image
   Per Eerie Elegance tradition we must celebrate Friday the 13th! For this year we present two new Paranormal Projections, this time captured in 4K resolution! The Eerie Elegance Scream Team has managed to capture several hauntings over the years, and we are excited to share them all with you , for a small fee of course!   The Ghostly Gentleman and Stylish Spirits were featured in Our Own Haunted Mansion for Halloween 2020, completely original costumes & characters filmed in front of greenscreen as our first Halloween project at our new old Queen Anne Victorian house the Eerie Elegance Estate. I made the entire dress ensemble including steel-boned hand-beaded lace corset, bolero jacket, mini top hat fascinator with feathers and bling, and 40lbs of stuffed ruffles, plus the matching vest, all from scratch for our wedding at Winchester Mystery House in 2018, then I sewed the custom cloak, decorated his hat, and transformed the full outfits into ghosts with wig & mak

Happy Halloween Pandemic-Style!

Happy Halloween! Hope everyone enjoyed their evening! We had a great night at Our Own Haunted Mansion with consistent flow without crowding so everyone stayed safe like our spooky spirits! Thanks to Lori, Rod, Eileen & Tyson & friends, Katie & daughter, Susan, Debi, Christian, Cyd, and Victor & friend for coming, several who had rotating VIP fire pit seats in the driveway! We saw some very fun costumes, like Thorgi the Corgi with the Queen of Hearts, Freddy Kruger, a sassy witch, an adorable lion, an elegant web, and an entire Wizard of Oz crew! I had prepared 50 gloves filled with candy in advance and kept refilling 20 at a time hanging on our fence as self-serve trick or treat, and I only had 5 left by 10pm, but it felt like it was at least twice as many adults as kids, so not a bad first Halloween here! #spooky #ghost #ghosts #spirits #stylishspirits #haunted #ourownhauntedmansion #EerieEleganceEstate #EerieElegance #homehaunters #HomeHauntersOfInstagram #Gri

still catching up on Halloween 2018...

2018 was a crazy year...I got married to Ghoulish Glen in custom Victorian finery at our local "haunted mansion" Winchester Mystery House in April, in August my longtime webserver crashed completely taking my entire BrittaBlvd WordPress with it, then I broke my ankle in September just after we got Castle Brittahytta set up again, so Halloween was a bit crazy while I healed in a sparkly purple cast hiding under my costume! We did have a great Halloween despite my injury, even some Facebook Live videos of our party and trick or treaters, but I still don't have a completely functional main website to document everything the way I used to. I've been posting more to Facebook and Instagram , so you can catch up there while I figure out the best way forward...

Our Haunted Hollywood Halloween was an award-winning success in the Santa Clara Citywide Halloween Decoration contest! You can watch our full Front Show , or excerpts from the show plus a walkthrough of the entire Haunted Hollywood Horror Monster Museum featuring 13 classic movie monsters ! For Halloween 2017, the 21st-century Webmistress of the Dark hosted the grand opening of the Hollywood Horror Monster Museum, a collection of 13 classic movie characters & props in a Golden Age movie theatre that was “rumored to be ‘haunted’ but I’ll believe that when I see it!” Our guests were welcome to walk & pose on the red carpet in front of the gilded proscenium vintage movie screen, complete with projected red curtains, roaming spotlights and the custom Hollywood Horror Monster Museum logo as the show began. Four platforms including The Mummy with his sarcophagus, Frankenstein's Monster & his Bride, Werewolf, and Nosferatu were on display bordered with red velvet ropes. S
