DREAM TOWN CLIENT CRAFTS SPOOKY SPECTACLES
One of the many advantages of owning your home is the freedom to indulge your own sense of style–which includes going all-out with your holiday decorations. For many homeowners, the Halloween season offers a chance to get creative and revel in the thrills and chills of the supernatural.
Lincoln Square residents Kevin Byrne and his husband Dop Troutman–longtime clients of Dream Town broker Susie Kanter–have been devoted to crafting incredible Halloween costumes and decorations for the past 20 years, including award-winning group ensembles related to Beetlejuice, The Addams Family, and Pee-Wee’s Playhouse. Kevin is a self-taught designer and craftsman and live theater technician. In addition to his costume work, he has also been responsible for maintaining the moody and unusual lobby display at the Briar Street Theater, home of Chicago’s Blue Man Group.
This year, Kevin and Dop may have outdone themselves by building an awe-inspiring Grim Reaper, wrapping its bony fingers around their house!
To see the process that Kevin and Dop used to create this impressive display, as well as the step-by-step photos for his other work, check out his website, Funtitled Workshop!
