Ray O’Bannon is a talented artist who created Ravenscraft.
Since it is finally fall/autumn, I thought I’d share some of my favorite Ray O’Bannon Haunted Toys.
Of course, it’s The Ghost House!
It also has a Secret Chamber . . .
Well, as I remember the story . . . The house was built in 1820 by Captain Joshua Harsh. Yes, his temperment seemed to match his name. He was a seaman — a Ship Captain as I recall . . . but he was rumored to be a pirate . . . and into the dark arts.
He built this house, but the building only occurred at night . . . not a strange occurance in Ravensblight . . . but all the same, it seemed quite odd.
He did bring home a bride to his new home . . . who was heavily veiled . . .
And she died mysteriously after lighting the lamp post in the yard . . . do you see it?
That lamp post still burns brightly . . . even to this day . . . inspite of other residents who purchased this property . . . and is still burning as it is awaiting a new owner . . .
This papercraft has a Secret Chamber which I mentioned earlier . . .
That’s what makes this paper craft Ghost House so special to me! I can put some of my own “treasures” inside.
I’ve made several of these in the past and given them as gifts . . . I wonder if they found the treasures I selected for them . . .
It really doesn’t matter — about the “treasures” . . . just that there is a secret chamber waiting to be discovered.
I also added some spooky characters to dress us the place a bit . . .
There are two sets . . . It is difficult to decide which are my favorites so I have a selection from both sets decorating my Ghost House . . . and, of course, you can do the same . . .
And, my Ghost House has a story all of its own . . . I just did that for my own amusement, but you can be true to Ray O’Bannon and stay with his story . . .
I kind of like having a mad scientists . . . or maybe a coven of witches building this Ghost House . . . and, of course, mine isn’t from Ravensblight, but built in my own hometown . . . which has a colorful haunted history all of its own . . . for those who are interested . . . but not everyone is into ghosts and real ghost stories . . .
Seriously, who wants to know that such “interesting” monsters are haunting their hometown . . . ???
