    Chewbacca replied to a thread Atmosphere Effects: Streetlight shows projection screen in Halloween Props
    I just finished building a rear projection screen for my crypt doorway. I tried several different materials but all the fabrics and even a commercial rear projection material showed a nasty hot spot from the projector which has to be directly behind the screen. The shower curtain completely hid the hotspot but, like you, I found it very visible under any ambient light. The solution I came up with was to stretch a thin black spandex like material over the front of the shower curtain. This...

    I picked up a couple of small ones from Kmart last year. Apparently they were on clearance from the year before. I think they were only like $5 each. I set up one of them on the toilet tank in the main bathroom for our party last year. Don't worry, I had it rigged to only go off when the toilet was flushed. I really didn't want to catch anyone with a full bladder.:rolleyes:

    Very nicely done! I've been wanting to do something very similar myself for several years now. Did you make your own skull mold? If not, where did you get it?

    Chewbacca replied to a thread Light orb in Halloween Props
    Oops, my mistake, it was $14.99. There were several items that were $19.99 before the 50% off and I just got them confused. I was to lazy to check the receipt.

    I went into Rite Aide yesterday and they had all their Halloween décor 50% off. I picked up one of these orbs for $10 as well as a bunch of other miscellaneous items.

    About the only trips I'll be making between now and Halloween is driving down to Fresno. I'll be sure to hit all the high spots though, Michael's, Home Depot, Lowes, Rite Aide, CVS, Dollar Tree, Big Lots and Harbor Freight. Oh and I almost forgot the Spirit Halloween store.:)

    The wife and I are doing Steampunk this year. She's doing a female explorer/time traveler and I'm doing a mad scientist/time traveler. All the props are done, as well as my costume. She still has to finish sewing hers.

    We don't usually have the humidity issues but the temps make up for it. This summer the temps kept bouncing from the high 80s to over 100 degrees We'd have a day or two of nice 80s temps and then it'd shoot back up above 100 for a week or so then the cycle would repeat. I think the highest temp we had was 108 and today its supposed to be 101.

    We decorate all the public areas. The general theme for our decorations is mainly things that people find un-nerving such as spiders and such. The bathroom is usually done with a theme of it's own. We've done a monster's lair, Psycho shower scene, giant spider's lair, zombies and last year we did exterminator's worst nightmare with lots of giant ants, roaches, rats and an Orkin man skeleton. This year will be killer dolls.

    It looks like there is enough of a gap with the flashing that you could use some small binder clips.

    I've played Skyrim all the way through on the Xbox twice but then my Xbox died. I purchased a copy of the pc version and played through once more even though my pc could barely handle the graphics. I've since upgraded my graphics card and it plays MUCH better so I started it again. I do like the pc version much better than the Xbox version because it can be modded. I've been a gamer ever since collage in the 80s. I started out with text adventures and NetHack. Skyrim and similar games...

    If the gloves are made from Lycra, like these, they will have quite a bit of stretch.
