No go on the hatch. Just had to chop the foam down into side-door compatible bits.
I hope things come together for you. To me it seems like there's often one thing that kinda surprises me and makes everything come together. Sometimes that thing never comes. And sometimes it comes too late. I've been checking my watch a lot lately. (actually my phone - who has watches these days?) ;)
Your wall is pretty awesome.
Finally got some foam today. And the missus is mostly done Spooky Town. So we're making minor progress. Still not sure what things are gonna look like this year. I kinda feel like I've missed the boat on this one.
How are things on your end?
Last year we had three kids probably 13 years old come to the door. One of them was dressed as someone sitting doing their business in an outhouse. The costume...I think it was all cardboard, with little fake legs hanging down from the "seat", but it was HUGE. Then the kids said "will you double our candy if we dance for you?" and proceeded to do a little 30 second boyband style dance routine, with the one kid in this giant outhouse costume. It was something to see.
Also had a four year old...
Hey FS - Look what I scored today for FREE!
The first thing I thought of was you and this build thread. I thought about trying to make big Kraken tentacles that are built in 3 or 4 sections for storage.
Maybe using a bent conduit as a center spine and making smaller wooden circles that continue up to the end, then using your technique for the skinning.
Any do's, don'ts advice? I am running out of time, so maybe for next year, but I love how yours turned out and couldn't turn down...
Always cool to see people dive into this build! It's not a small project at all but all the results I've seen are amazing!
Definitely check out Mizerella's blogspot and Facebook page (see her first post) - she's done a bunch of impressive projects.
I had the same issue.. I live on a quiet culdesac and while the neighborhood behind and beside us seemed to have plenty of tots, we would only get about 25. 2 things that helped up is loud, creepy music and a spotlight in the sky... It made people aware of our existence. Good luck and keep up the fight! it will pay off!
Get a lot of this from family even without asking for assistance. Unfortunately we've got at least one "expert on everything". You can't be bothered to even carve a pumpkin but you're certain I'm doing everything wrong.

"You know what you SHOULD do..." is the worst phrase in the world.
Think it could be tough to find. Someone here...(I think it was DaveintheGrave) created motorized eyeballs using a reindeer motor, I think. But unless you've got a good foot of space behind the painting, that wouldn't work.
There's also the optical illusion where you cut the eyes out of the picture and set the pupils back about half an inch behind the surface and it should appear like the eyes are following you as you wander around the room - but it would be a very subtle effect.
I said "Oh, that's Angel. We're internet friends. She's crazy!"
Now I now what Macauly Culkin felt like when his friends put on Michael Jackson records.
Did is you get the reference? Have you seen Over the Garden Wall?
BTW, the RIGHT solution to the photo problem would be for Larry to find an upgrade that allows the photos to be rotated after they're uploaded. But maybe that's not technically or financially possible for him at them moment. But you're not at fault. Everyone shouldn't have to come up with a complex workflow to get around this issue.
That'd be a little like a tailor telling all his customers to lean right while they walk because he can't get the pant legs the same length. ;)
Hey you. Just saw your post about your photos being upside down. Don't be too hard on yourself. Probably a lot is related to the forums being built on older technology (such a slow process to upload too). And yeah, just computers in general.
Not sure what software you're using (if any) for managing your photos, but if your using some kind of photo manager, it'd probably help to export the photos to a different size or format after you right-side-up them. Basically do anything that makes a...
I've got a big smirk on my face after reading your latest Theft post. Glad everything turned out ok. Your friends may be right about what happened. But it reminded me of this anecdote from Douglas Adams
Ha! :) Glad the story had a happy ending. I've had the kind of thing happen to me before - I've even ran around the house ranting that my wife had moved something when I had actually put it somewhere and forgot. It's a VERY strange feeling when you find what you thought was gone forever. :o
This! Totally this! And I don't mind a bit of drama - I mean stuff happens and it's not bad to show it. But a lot of it is so clearly staged - and it always conveniently pops up just before the commercial break. We all know the formula and it's getting really tired. Halloween Wars is just one of a million shows guilty of this though.
There's a Canadian home reno show called "I Wrecked My House" which I just love because it IS completely absent of drama, and it's a bit of an oasis in the...
Hey John! Welcome to the forums - it's an amazing place. I could barely tie my shoes when I got here, but I've learned to make a lot of cool stuff I never would have dreamed of with the help of these talented folks. (Still struggling with the shoe-tying though.)
Yeah, I just took a look and it looks like their on to Simpsons "Back to School" toys according to their website. Guessing there was some kind of supply issue or something because - it would make more sense to have those two reversed on the calendar. But I appreciate the heads anyway. :)
