    Thanks all - you are so sweet :) :) :) Generally you figure out what voltage and current (amps) the batteries were supplying to the device and then wire up a AC wall wart to match it. I have boxes of saved wall warts and it's not a big deal. But, if you don't - a trip to Radio Shack will supply you with one but be warned - they aren't the cheapest things. Once you have the right wall wart then you solder the wires up to the terminals (positive and negative) that are in the battery pack....

    If you have a huge wine shop like that where you live it can be an incredible resource. The people who work there REALLY want to help you. They have haunter's passion about Halloween but with wine. Most customers who go in there are too embarrassed to ask for help but they shouldn't be. Remember Wine Nerds = Halloweeniers. ;) Heck, sometimes when you start asking questions they will attempt to open your head and flood it with info. They love to help just like haunters.

    Have fun. I'm like a kid in a candy store when I go to a full-bore wine shop. This one was a favorite in KC: http://www.lukasliquor.com/wine.html

    Yes, that is it. I got mine at Spec's ( a Texas liquor store). I've also gotten it at Whole Foods. It's a South African wine so it might be in a regional section at your liquor store. Pleased that you went to look for it. I'm curious if you'd like it. Though it's sweet - it's still got a serious edge of the red wine flavors. Probably a great way to dip your toe into red wines to see if you like them.

    I'd bet that hangover was epic... Wanted to throw this one your way in case you are still on the search for a good entry level red. This is a sweet one but not in the usual candied sweet, artificial stuff you usually find. It's from South Africa and called Jam Jar Red. A combo between Shiraz and Moscato. It's got a sweet edge to take off from the serious red fruits you get from the Shiraz. I'ts not too expensive - around $8 a bottle. Color: dark red with purple highlights. Nose: Juicy...

    Hey back. That file is called a 'Steel File Cleaning Brush'. It's neat because the wires are bent back and so you get extra grip to help shave away the Great Stuff. Google 'steel file cleaning brush' to help you find it but pretty sure I got it at Home Depot years ago. I'd include a link but the software doesn't allow me to post it right now for some reason. Holler if you don't see it. Oh, and you are still going to get a lot of snow - only finer. heh.

    Wow, they look so old and (best of all) scary.

    I would say it's up to you and what style you like in tombstones. I had fallen in love with a particular style of stone found in Scotland. They were utterly old, moss covered and had a flat gray sheen to them. From there did the research to get that same effect. Flat gray Drylok worked great for that as a base. Then used other paints and techniques to age the heck out of it. The final bit was to hot glue moss on them. As for thickness: Those stones in Scotland were far thicker than the ones...

    Hello Attain,
    I saw the Southeastern PA home haunters group you are a member of and it says it's for haunters in the TriState area. I'm in Northern NJ and was wondering if I'm too far from your geographical area? Thanks.
  2. Does anyone know of some good plastic skull lots? Cheap life-size stuff?

  9. That does sound like a lot. How do you plan to do the chair? I always wanted to have one of those. I will talk to the wifey about the craft show. I'm sure she would be interested in helping out.

    I think I am going a little mish mosh this year. I am moving the graveyard to the backyard I hope!
    my plan is to have the kids come in out front past a toxic spill then past 3 witches and the cauldron. Then proceed to the backyard past the 9' scarecrow to the rocking rocking chair with no one in it then finally the graveyard then dumped into the neighbors yard! I hope I can pull it off.
    If the wife wants we are having a craft fair at a fire house on Oct.24 and I am still in need of people to sell things.
