    I was going to ask this exact question, but didn't want to be a downer on this thread. I heard that the paneling is strictly indoor use, but water sealant should do the trick. I had this exact idea, but was afraid to do it for fear of them getting ruined. You're inspiring me to take on this project this year instead of next year. :)

    I'm selling a Gemmy 2008 Fortune telling witch with crystal ball. Need to make space for storage. I'm asking 100 dollars for her plus shipping. No local pick-up available. The price is final, won't accept offers. I'm selling product AS IS. She's got the next FLAWS: 1. Skull's mouth is not moving. 2. Witch's mouth is not moving. The rest of her motions work just fine.

    EXCELLENT!!!!!!! I have a ton of these and they're hugely popular with the kids on Halloween. Not to mention I loved this movie! I can't wait! I'm sure I'll be paying a pretty penny for this one. I just wish they'd produce in Blu Ray.

    The Joker replied to a thread Prop Showcase: Idea in Halloween Props
    Great idea! Unfortunately for me most of the props I envy are homemade. The guy who in large part inspired my haunt added something two years ago that I envy so much. I'm going to stop by his house this year for the first time and ask him how he made them. They're awesome! It's funny... the first time I saw his haunt was about 30 years ago in my childhood neighborhood, and he's still going strong! He's one of the reasons I haunt my house each year and he has no idea. I've never talk to...

    I love it! Because of the angles of the PVC, it really makes it look old, and bent out of shape! AWESOME JOB!!!

    Another question actually... Is monster mud sand-able? I'm just wondering if it can be carved into and sanded after application for detail work.

    Sounds like a really good idea. Have you tried this, or is it just a hunch? :) I assume this will waterproof it and protect it from crumbling in the rain?

    Hey all. I've never tried building anything with monster mud. I was wondering if it's the best way to build columns and stones for the graveyard. I've heard that it can deteriorate in rain... that's a bit concerning. I'd hate to put a bunch of work into it and have it crumble. Does exterior paint seal it well enough? There's obviously no chance I'm going to be bring in graveyard columns and stones each night. Is there a better technique for building columns than MM?

    Lovely plan. Any other takers?:D Actually, the suits of armor come in periodically, not just during one season. Having handled them, I can say that they are basically a heavy grade of aluminum foil:p Really, they are decent quality for the price.

Hell, add busts to that list, too...

    Hey all. Looking for some ideas for aging poseable skeletons. The ones from Home Depot leave a little to be desired from that standpoint. The last time I aged a skeleton the "in thing" was using gel wood stain. Is that still the best way? Are there better ways? I don't want it to be too dark as to disappear in the graveyard, but want enough so that it doesn't look so two-dimensional. Also, these poseable skeletons from Home Depot aren't too articulate. I'm wondering if anyone has found an...

    Great tip, brimagic! I appreciate that. Just curious, what are the downfalls of cheap fog juice? Toxic residue? Or does is crust up the fogger?

    Excellent! If this was going to be available in stores, I'd be waiting on the front sidewalk like kids camping out in front of Best Buy on Thanksgiving. :) Great work! I really think the pose is what makes it unique.

    LOL! So true. Maybe I'm overthinking it. I can always try both and if I don't like it, go with another option. I really like Godcrusher's idea. I remember setting up fog one year (the first year I did it) and the wind on Halloween killed the effect so I never tried it again. Being in a new house I was thinking of trying again. I think I'll have both set up and see what tickles my fancy. Any other thoughts? I think both effects are great, but wondering which others seem to like more.

    So, I purchased a lightning storm simulator for my haunt, but now I'm torn. What looks better? The creepiness of low-lying fog in the graveyard, or a lightning and thunderstorm effect?? :eek: I don't think both at the same time makes sense. The weather conditions that lead to a lightning storm don't normally produce fog. I'm struggling with it now though. Maybe I'll do lightning storm for the days leading up to Halloween, and then the fog effect on the night of Halloween? Maybe switch back...

    After some careful consideration I decided to spring for the new digital 301 unit. I hope it works how I'm thinking it will. I plan to set it up in the garage (Great idea foolishmortal). I'll run a couple of black power cords from the unit out of the garage and over the Halloween archway I have. I wasn't planning to set up the archway, but think it's a good way to get past the front walk. From that point I'll use some standard green extension cords I have and run those to the lights. I'm...
