Macabre baker and artist Christine McConnell turned her parents’ home into a real life monster house for Halloween.
Three years ago Christine McConnell, purveyor of morbid cakes and crafts, as well as the star of the new Netflix series The Curious Creations of Christine McConnell, decorated her parent’s Los Angeles-area home for Halloween. It got so much attention that she was approached by some 300 production companies to create her own reality show.
But McConnell wanted to do it her own way, and signup up to work with the Jim Henson Company to create a show that combines dark Addams Family-style humor, macabre puppets, and baking. Exactly what you’d expect from her.
So this year she returned to spook up her parents’ home again, overhauling the entire front of the house with a giant monster face, menacing eyes, and giant fangs.
McConnell says it took her over a month to create, and is her most ambitious project to date.
Watch how it was made:

Roughly 4,000 shingles had to be cut for this 😞 The first night I put up the bottom panels, a crazy wind came through and ripped them off and into pieces. The next time I rented a Boom Lift and had every family member I could find come help ❤️🙌🏻❤️ #TheCuriousCreationsOfChristineMcConnell @Netflix Thank you #HUB construction in San Bernardino for having nearly all the supplies I needed for this 🎉 Song is ‘Prelude’ from the Vertigo soundtrack by one of my favorite composers Bernard Herrmann Thank you to my parents for letting me do this to your house 😬
