    All too familiar. We're having two giant trees removed in the next week or two so my yard will be really ugly until it all fills back in. And that hip thing? OH MY GOD! I'm almost certain it comes from carrying things up and down a ladder. Or standing on the top of the ladder trying to keep from falling off while trying to catch things that are falling out of the top of a closet. Or maybe that's just me.

    Has anyone heard anything about this? I haven't seen any commercials, or anything on their website about this year. :confused:

    I like having a choice, especially now that I have children. Studies have shown that brain growth & development in the first 3 years is incredible, so even though it might be easy for me to know that candy isn't as good for my kiddos as vegetables, I personally feel like consumers should vote with their dollars. I am way more concerned about pesticides than GMO's, but without going too political here, I would like to point out that there are a few companies that have a monopoly & tight hold...

    Hey habeastortioise - I still can't upload pictures the traditional way, but now use Google Photos for all my pics (they automatically upload them from my phone). Then I just copy/paste the URL and they appear. Saves a ton of time on resizing them. I only wish there were an easier workflow to add updates and photos easily from the mobile device...

    I've been researching various ways to make a scarecrow body (so I can attach a mask I purchased and love) and can't decide which is the 'easiest' and 'cheapest' route to go. haha I've been using this site a lot to build my props and found these: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lTqfowu8sbA https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iG4oaB-oGjw

    October 29th for me! Every year I throw a Halloween party for my local LARP (live action roleplaying) group, and our storyteller rolls with whatever decor I create to bring us an awesome creepy adventure for the evening. This year I am going all witchy - breaking out the spell bottles, spell books, weird ingredients, and lots and lots of candles. I hope to get the stuff I want made for the outside of the house done this week, and then it's going to be fun with all of the little scene setting...

    Keep me posted on that R2 project - it's one that's been on my mind for a long time, but haven't been able to fully commit to it! That is definitely a labor of love and one that requires a lot of dedication. In the meantime, keep up the great work on your Halloween event and Artie Deco!

    I use a variety of lights, from the spot, to flood, even the nano spot lights. Depending on how you are wanting your light distributed is going to determine the type of lighting you want to use. I really like my nano spots because i only need to have one on a tombstone and it gives it enough light to make it eerie looking and enough light so you can read it. The spot light can put a crap ton of light on one thing and give the rest of the area a shadow feeling, which can be good or bad.

    I spent some time this weekend corpsing some cheap skeletons I picked up at Home Depot ($30). This is the end result. The first one turned out a bit more charred looking so I used a thinner mix on the second one. I don't think they turned out too shabby for my first attempt!

    I just decided on my theme this weekend... Definitely slower start than usual. And it involves props I don't already own that will have to be found/modified/made. Not too complicated, and probably can get them done this week. The upside to a tiny front yard I guess. Sooo, yeah, cutting it tight, but I think I'll still have enough together to be awesome by the time I have a party on the 29th.

    A good metal wax should work. I've used Sculpt Nouveau waxes on brass with great results. Once the wax dries, it's hard like paint. By applying it thick in areas, you can quickly re-create years of grime build up.

    If they are the ones I saw they look almost exactly like those except the asda ones are plastic. They have a warm yellow glow when lit up. I think they made thunder sounds, but don't quote me on that. I zoomed in on my phone and took a screen shot of them for you. Bottom left. Think they were 5 or 10

    Hey Dyne - that's right - the plastic water bottles lift the foam off the lights, both for heat and also because the base is aluminum foil so the light scatters and bounces around a bit more. The goal was to make it brighter than the traditional cauldron coal effect. The real question will be - where are the Jedis? They'll be locked up on the porch waiting to scare the patrons... ;)

    victor-eyd replied to a thread Static: projecting onto the ground? in Halloween Props
    The easiest by far is to simply mount the projector from the 2nd floor window and point towards the street. Take into account that depending on the type of projector you have, either the resulting image will be smaller than what you'd like or too dim because the lumen output of the projector is too weak. If you already have your projector, simply test by firing it against the garage wall at the same distance it would be suspended from above. That will be the size and brightness of your...

    Frightshow replied to a thread Fog: Fog Frustrations! in Halloween Props
    Another consideration is to measure the distance the fog travels (in the chiller) and the diameter of the black drainage tube. Sometimes the fan in the fog machine can start to slow down with age and if the drainage tube becomes too long or too narrow, the fog can collect and backup inside the tube. Even with an upgraded 1000W fogger, I needed to install a separate USB PC fan inside my pirate cannon to get the fog to exit - otherwise it would pile up inside the cannon (7 feet long, 12"...

    The ballerina plays a really nice tune but sadly the motor that spins her around is rather loud :( This might just be a dodgy one I picked up, in which case I will exchange her. If you do get one, please let me know if you have the same sound issue with the motor :)

    The webcaster gun can be used with a vacuum cleaner. Mine is a small Dirt Devil, imagine that. You don't need an air compressor ! That is why I check out all angles on this. It's very easy to set up.

    Would anybody happen to have a perfectly rip of the 'Sounds to Make You Shiver'? I have one from years ago, but a really bad copy and audio. I'm looking for a perfect rip with no snap, crackle and or pops. Can anybody help an old ghoul out? Didn't they release it on cd that is pictured with four skeletons on a black and white cover with orange box like above the skeletons with the title in white....'Sounds to Make You Shiver'? If so, thats the I'd like to have unless someone had a perfectly...
