    Here are a few pics from our first pirate theme from 2001. We have decided to bring it back this year and was happy to see this thread as I'm looking for new ideas. That sign is awesome :D

    I drove the Pacific Coast Highway/Big Sur a couple years ago and it is defiantly worth taking. I am not sure about some of the stuff you want to see Halloween wise taking that route but the scenery is amazing. there are lots of cool smaller beach towns taking that highway you go thru, there are also some areas where I don't think there are any towns around for a few miles. I am from the Midwest where we do have pumpkin farms, honestly I am not sure about California and if it is to warm, but...

    http://www.ebay.com/itm/400192224131?ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1439.l2649 I got it from ebay...I love the blue color on the one in the picture but everything I have is fall colors so she changed the color for me, its called Terra Cotta. She has a few colors to choose from. She shipped really quickly as well. I found stencils to do it myself but the stencils were going to cost more than the actual sign so I just bought it. It just could not be more perfect for my party so had to...

    I hereby propose we also petition Larry to change Ghost of Spookie's title to "Spends Other Peoples' Money" :D Somehow, despite shopping at Halloween Asylum for nearly all my pure Halloween items, I managed to overlook the Poseidon tuxedos... for two years! Her posting about them on this thread led to my purchasing three matching tuxes for the groomsmen to my oft-postponed "Four Funerals and a Wedding." The bridesmaids have always had matching dresses but I couldn't find even two tuxes on the...

    The term "combined shipping" on ebay typically refers to placing additional items purchased in one box or package to save on shipping cost. In most cases this works out well for the buyer if the items are small. This probably didn't go that way due to the size of the items which could very easily increase the total shipping amount. All in all, while it may have upset you, an additional $2 isn't an extreme amount for what you purchased. I doubt the seller is trying to get more than her cost. If...

    So, it appears we used basically the same method as groundskeeper did with the exception of the gold paint, and some of the 'chunkier' elements...that 'Tortuga' sign looks really great! I know that when we went to do our sign, multiple methods were considered, but foam won out on several counts. Weight and ability to 'carve' the lettering we wanted really made the decision for us. After experimenting a bit with some leftover foam, I found that simply using a soldering iron created a...

    Thanks, it is just pink foam. I used a wood burning tool with different tips from Micheal's to carve/melt out the letters and wood grain. The sign is almost 3' wide and I painted the letters with a shiny gold paint to make it pop out more.

    I did a levitating woman prop last year using fishing line. I know it worked because I heard a boy tell his parents, "LOOK! She's floating!" :)

    I was a little irked like I said that the listings total shipping for the 3 separate items was $48.00. I asked prior to bidding about a combined shipping rate which she responded yes. After the auctions ended she sent me an invoice for $50.00 total shipping. I would have been a little irked if she asked for the full $48.00 but not much I could have done. The fact that she asked for $50.00 got me a little ticked. If 3 separate pkgs. would be cheaper to ship than do it that way. At least if any...

    You could use a piece of resistor wire (think foam cutter) in oil. it would burn the oil and produce smoke. I think they use a similar thing in model trains. Or possibly use one of those new electric cigarettes and connect it to a small fan. You could possibly plum it to different parts on the costume.

    I have one of these that every time I head into my hoarded Halloween stash aka my garage it falls at my feet. It's listed as a table top but I can't see that because it's about 22" tall. The skulls on it are pretty cool. They're a hollowed out resin that could be lighted up. That's if you can get them to stay on the holder. I'm not even going to try to glue them on before shipping. Does anyone want this before it ends up crippling me? http://www.pinterest.com/pin/295056213056545931/

    It would help if we had the original ebay links to the items you bought. Also for future ebaying, when negotiating combined shipping, you can always request a lower shipping charge. Some sellers are hard a$$%%^ about their terms but most are compliant with options. Keep in mind that if shipping through usps like it sounds like she is doing, usps has done away with the parcel post option over a certain dimension. Since we dont know how big the box is we cant assume to know if parcel was even...

    Mchaunt, you posting it just got the wheels turning (pun intended ;) ) I see them a lot at thrift stores now I'll be picking them up! The community yard sale is scheduled for our development in early May. I will be scoping out the neighborhood, but don't think I'll be selling until next spring. Want to do it after my first halloween here.
