    Never thought of using real bugs! I like using things that won't decay if I forget to clean out the jars... :D Definitely save all the interesting jars and bottles tho. So many of them would work as potion jars with just a little paint and a cool label.

    Very cool! How do you light it? I'd do a low uplight using blue or green, but anything would make it look amazing! :cool:

    We had to move our party last year due to epic storms and still ended up getting rained out the replacement day, and Halloween was raining and storming right up until 3pm or so, but we threw out what we could and still had a pretty decent night. I say do whatever decorating you can (that won't be damaged by the exposure) and have a good time with whomever shows up. It might mean just doing a display instead of the walkthrough... but it is better than nothing and no one but you will know...

    Check out the Tempt Your Fate game on here - lots of fun with that one and it isn't hard to do as people can choose to play or not. We did a photo scavenger hunt at one party. Made up a sign and had the rules on that. It was "find the 13 thirteens" (we had occurrences of the number 13, or 13 bats or rats or masks hidden through the party area) but you could do a game where they have to solve a riddle to figure out what to take a pic of, and it could be of props or decoration you own already...

    Kroger has started marking items 40% off in store. Not the candy, but some of the props and costume stuff like masks and wigs and little things. They do carry pose and stay skeletons too, but not sure if they're included in the discount?

    Lots of possibilities: Frankula (Dracula and Frankenstein mashup - combine the neckbolts, stitches, green skin and clothes from Frankenstein and add in some fangs and a cape) Could do a steampunk Freddy or Jason (that would be really cool but might not have time now) Oh! A fun one that might be easy would be Dracula in a specific era - like wild west Drac or 1920s gangster boss Drac. Since he's supposed to be immortal, he could have been around and having a grand time being a vampire...

    HiRez Designs does a very similar sequence - but using a scary looking guy (same hits in the door). Do a search for "Axe" on their website and you'll have a few choices if that works. HiRez has a good rep as far as I can tell, and this vid was reviewed on here as being good quality and quite scary.

    If you are tired, anxious and aching from trying to put up decorations, by all means scale back or even taking the year off. That's terrible to try to do what you used to do if you have no helpers and/or are coming off of multiple surgeries and should be taking it easy! People get sick, move, have family issues and even pass on... most of the time without any warning. If you're providing an interactive display for years without any outside help (other than friends/family members) then the...

    They just wanted money and the stuff gone and didn't really care about some stranger's inconvenience or anything. Likely the other buyer offered them more money too. If they've been burned in the past, they probably figured they'd see if the higher money offer showed up and just tell you you are out of luck, but if they were a no-show, they still had you as a backup buyer. It's all money, nothing personal. Some folks just aren't honest or have any integrity - and I mean that as it could be...

    Tendrils of mist creep silently over the fallen leaves
    as a cold crisp wind whispers in your ear
    slithering shadows creep and crawl
    feeding from your fear
    It's in this moment of Halloween horror
    your unsure of what to do
    don't panic don't cry its only me
    the one and only Spookyboo

    Just a little a member with an interesting name .....
