A Massachusetts architect has been building epic Halloween installations every year in his front yard—becoming a local legend for his scary sculptures.
Tom Saltsman has kept up the tradition for the last eight years, after erecting an 80’s horror-themed piece for a party that so thrilled his friends and neighbors, he pledged to do it yearly.
His home in Marblehead has become the staging ground for an enormous dragon, an ethereal skeleton spirit, a spaceship, a pirate’s ghost ship, and a King Kong that moves his head and roars.
The 60-year-old spends up to two months ahead of the spooky season preparing the installations and recruits friends and family to complete them.
His most recent project in 2022, was a 22-foot-high Egyptian god, with his garage turned into an Egyptian tomb. His wife Brooke, who is also an architect, helped painted all the hieroglyphics along with three friends.
After scavenging scraps from his workplace, he can build most of the pieces for less than $200—with materials mostly being plywood, garbage bags and various types of foam. (See the video at the bottom…)
