    I just love this thread, I can't wait to see everyone as little trick or treaters! I will have to dig some of mine up tonight and post them :) All of the homemade costumes are so adorable, I especially love the robot costume you made for your brother unorthodox!

    Thanks! I wish I could leave them as is - they look better to me in their natural coloration, before I paint them. But I am trying to make them look chalk-drawing like, so, they're due for a paint job. At least I know how to make them now.

    Thanks, guys. I have been admiring your voodoo shack, punkineater, and your new signs, omm (especially the children's ward one - so creepy-cute) - very cool stuff. :)

    Hi - Saw you're going to try and remake those compilations - I am guessing you probably have everything I have and more, but if you get stuck on any song in particular let me know and I will check if I have it just in case.

    Creeperguardian- I think that's a great idea! It's always nice to have things to build with, hands, eyeballs, feet, anything really, since we are all pretty creative that should be no issue :) I love teasers!!

    A little-off topic, but if you're just getting started and working on a graveyard, you may want to consider making some of these PVC candles... They're just hunks of PVC pipe with led tea lights inside, and hot glue and paint on the outside. I'm sure you could use pretty much any kind of tube - old Pringles cans or whatever though they might take more paint. We set a few of these in front of our tombstones and they get a ton of comments for something you can make quick while watching TV.

    Hey CrystalV. Not sure if this is a ton of help but Dave Lowe has a tutorial on making tombstones from FedEx boxes. No info on water proofing though.... http://davelowe.blogspot.ca/2010/10/14-days-til-halloween-shipping-box.html Most people make 'em from sheets of foam insulation, so I guess the other question is, what are good sources for cheap/free foam? I remember years ago someone saying that hot tubs had a ton of foam packaging so they were harassing their local hot tub place for foam....

    I'm kind of the same. We saw Les Miserables for the first time years ago - it's my wife's favourite. But I was all about how the sets spun around and converted into different things. Hate it when I go to a show and the sets are really minimal. Where's the fun in that.

    This looks amazing all lit up. Were you a set designer in a past life? Lighting is awesome.

    *nods in agreement* Web is definitely a nice tool to have in your toolbox. It's amazing how much employers expect now. I've seen postings for designers that are required to do sales and drive a forklift. Mornings are hard.

    I see! Looks very impressive so far! But he's been so long between updates, I decided to find a new prop guru! There's this lady I follow on Facebook. She's got a witch's name - can't remember it at the moment. Anyway she does all kinds of great stuff with blow molds and found objects, combining stuff in really inventive ways. Mr. Lowe is gonna have to work hard to catch back up.

    Sent a teaser out last week so hopefully soon I will hear that they've received it!! I have lots of ideas and am ready to start crafting up some stuff, just have to find time! Haha I've also checked this victim and previous victim's addresses in goggle maps, so I guess I'm a total creeper too! If someone tried mine it shows no where near where I live lol its more than a half mile away! Can't wait to start seeing the pics of the teasers!

    Thanks! I'm torn between the one that's going to be clinging to the fence looking up at the kids (first one on the left) and Sneaky Pete (the ankle-grabber, third one in from the left). Although I have a certain sympathy for Mr. Oblivious, 2nd in from the left, whose ankle will be getting grabbed.

  2. Thank you!! The orphange looked super creepy looking out from our living room window. haha I guess I am doing my job as a haunter if I can freak myself out! The ghost baby had tons of pictures taken with her haha

    Thanks! They like it ( no complaints anyway). I can usually get volunteers to help set it up so that says something I guess.

    How are your projects coming this year?

    I'm actually in the middle of tearing down an old greenhouse that's rotted out in the back - had to take it down before it tipped over and killed someone. So Halloween again must wait.

    Hey Bam! I did get it done but I had some problems with it - it'd work for a while and then just get stuck in place. Gonna try to fix it this year. I did a few things different than...I think it was DaveintheGrave's instructions I was following... and it added up to trouble.

    I used the same measurements as Dave but neglected to consider that my motor was thicker, which gave me less room to play. Also couldn't find a Ouija board so I actually traced the Ouija Board image (If you ever need it holler. I did it in Adobe Illustrator so you should be able to print it as large as you want - I can make a PDF). Then I just laid that on top of a thin piece of wood with a sheet of mylar over top.

    In the end it seemed like the magnets were either too strong, which wasn't allowing enough movement, or too weak and would just drop my planchette (which I also made myself so that's another variable.)

    All this stuff would be moot if I hadn't used a reindeer motor, but because it auto reverses when the torque is too low for the stress, It turned out to be tricky.

    It was one of those things where it worked fine for 20 minutes in the house and I called it done, only to find out that was a bit of a fluke.

    Pictures of my props? No, I don't have any posted, sorry! I do have a good amount, and I'll be sure to post pictures when they're up for the season.

    Thanks, Bam. Don't know if we'll get to it this year. Keeping plans pretty modest, but I think the number of kids on our street is up 50% and it's a Friday, so I definitely want to do something.

    How goes your Halloween?
  9. Thank you! haha yeah it was really creepy when it was in my basement, coming down the steps with the right lighting it *almost* looked like it was moving. People kept walking around it!

    Thank you! I took some time off from Halloweening so I have to get back to it. How are your mad scientist lab plans going?
