Mansion Tombstone Collectibles!

I scored the new set of mansion tombstones today! They are beautiful miniature versions of the Good Old Fred, Master Gracey and Madame Leota tombstones. They are 4 inches (10 cm) tall, cast in a very heavy material and have great detail.

I found mine at the Disney Quest store at Downtown Disney in Orlando but I'm sure they are available in many other places outside of the parks (and they are also available at Disneyland in California).
Thanks for the help in finding mine, Matt Roseboom (Orlando Attractions Magazine)

You can also order online from at this link,

If you can't get your hands on these, don't forget, you can download and build your own paper versions from Haunted Dimensions.

Two Million!

Haunted Dimensions reached an amazing milestone of recording over Two Million visits!
In that time there have been over One Million downloads of my paper model kits. I have heard from thousands of people who have been inspired and encouraged by successfully completing the projects, which has been very humbling and wonderful. 
Thanks to all the Haunted-Dimensioneers who have made my site and projects such a huge success!

Skeleton Dance Shirt!

SCORE!!! I snagged the last Disney "Skeleton Dance" T-shirt on the rack at my local Target. Didn't think I would actually find one, and nothing short of something so cool would even get me in a Target (especially on a Saturday in Orlando)! It's part of the "Disney Artist Collection at Target". Thanks for the heads-up, Inside the Magic! Made my day!
It only cost $12.99 but I found one on Ebay for $50!
Keep in mind that this particular shirt design has been deliberately "distressed", meaning that the cuffs and collar have small holes snipped in them, giving it a slightly tattered appearance.

"The Knoll" update

A few months ago I announced my new project for Haunted Dimensions, "The Knoll - A Trespasser in Reeves Hall", which will be an original story and paper model kit. I'm not going to reveal much about this project, but I wanted to share an early concept model for Reeves Hall.

Jake, a Haunted-dimensioneer!

I had the privilege to meet a great Haunted-dimensioneer, Jake, who was visiting the Orlando parks with his family, from Scotland. Jake LOVES the haunted mansions and he wanted to meet me while they were here. He is an amazing guy! This is a shot of me, Jake and his brother, Bruce, at Wizarding World.

Haunted Dimensions Going Dark

On January 18, Haunted Dimensions will join many other sites around the Internet in "going dark" to oppose SOPA and PIPA, the pending US legislation that creates a punishing Internet censorship regime and exports it to the rest of the world. 

"Even though a substantial portion of my living comes from the entertainment industry, I don't think that any amount of "piracy" justifies this kind of depraved indifference to the consequences of one's actions. Big Content haven't just declared war on the "fun" Internet: they've declared war on every person who uses the net to publicize police brutality, every oppressed person in the Arab Spring who used the net to organize protests and publicize the blood spilled by their oppressors, every abused kid who used the net to reveal her father as a brutalizer of children, every gay kid who used the net to discover that life is worth living despite the torment she's experiencing, every grassroots political campaigner who uses the net to make her community a better place -- as well as the scientists who collaborate online, the rescue workers who coordinate online, the makers who trade tips online, the people with rare diseases who support each other online, and the independent creators who use the Internet to earn their livings."
