    Thank you all. I'm really happy with how it turned out as well. I was a little iffy about it originally.

    I can't believe no one has mentioned Killer Klowns or Plan 9. You can't get much more goofy and campy than those.

    I made this back in 2012. We've been sitting it out every year since then.

    I'm building it. So far it's going well, but there are more than a few things that still need to be done. It's going to be a green screen booth so that people can select a digital background for their picture. I started with a 10'x10' pop up shade structure by Caravan Canopies. It had been blown over a few years ago and a couple of the struts were bent beyond straightening. The structure was actually held together with screws so I disassembled it and reconfigured it to be 5'x10'. I picked...

    Ours is the last Saturday in October as always. So this year it falls on the 29th. The big addition this year is a photo booth. I've still got some work to do on that but I've got just about everything else needed for the party except for food and drink.

    You could definitely use one in a cemetery. I'd keep them away from high traffic areas because I think they are on the fragile side. I don't know how well they'd hold up if someone bumped into one of the wings. As for buying any more gargoyles, I think I've got enough for now.

    The wings seem to be the same plaster material as the main body. I think they are hollow because they sound hollow if you tap them with a finger. They say it is for indoor and outdoor use but I don't know how much faith I have in claims like that for a made in China prop.

    I also picked up 2 of the HD gargoyles last year and picked up the Costco ones on Tuesday. The gargoyle is made from a plaster type material with fibers embedded in it. The one I got turned out to be slightly damaged. It had an area that had been broken off. Since the Costco is 30 miles away and the area was small I just repaired the damage with some Apoxie Sculpt. After repainting it looked fine. Aside from the damage I really like it. The wings attach with a couple of wing nuts accessed...

    Just in case anyone is interested. Here's what the witch looks like after de-glittering and repainting. I used Hammered Copper spray paint and aged it with some very diluted black craft paint.

    I haven't counted mine but I did need to find the most compact way to store them because they where taking over. If you suspend them upright by running two poles horizontally under their arm pits you can really pack them in. I have two rows with the bottom row's heads between the feet of the upper row.

    I when out and bought one of the witch figures and the glitter comes off easily. I just used some hot water and Dawn with an old toothbrush. It didn't take long at all. The "glue" holding the glitter is a joke and is water soluble. The figure is much better than you'd think. I did have to touch up the areas where they ground off the flashing with some 220 grit sand paper. All in all it looks 500%better without that awful glitter. By the way, the figure itself is grey resin. I'm...
