    I've said it before I'll say it again, I don't care if it's store bought or homemade. Not everyone is crafty or has the time to be crafty so it's OK, for me it's the fun of getting the stuff & sending the stuff. My box will go out tomorrow. I'm finishing one little thing today then taking it to work to UPS off to my victim!!

    In one of the tutorial videos, I recall he said that it's about a 6 hour project. This would not include the drying time for the glue/paint. I think right now I have 3-4 hours into each one. The painting will be time consuming to get the desired detail. given the amount of time until Halloween, I'm good spending time on them. I don't think I would have started these in September though.

    While looking for witch related things for this years haunt, I came across Gourdin Fester's tutorial videos on these really cool looking "rot jars", or witch lanterns/swamp lanterns/whatever you want to call them. I've never worked with paper mache before save for projects in school so this is a fairly new endeavor for me. These are just too cool not to try. We'll have 5 in total in the front yard display part of our haunt and here are some progress pics. Rot Jar 1 - YouTube

    These two are being made by DSS, formerly Dark Side Studios. I wanted witches to compliment my Death Studios Swamp Witch, but Death Studios other witches didn't have the look I was after. Dark side had these two and they'll look great with Swamp Witch.

    Can you describe the space? How much area do you have to work with? one car? two car?. Is the garage attached to your home or detached? We've used our garage before and now have a free standing structure that is 12' wide by 24' long. How many visitors do you normally have on Halloween? This would determine what you need to do for traffic flow (having both an entrance and exit door vs just a space where people walk in and look around. Give some more info and it would be easier to give...

    Oh lordy no! :D I'm just a huge fan. Plus he's far too hot for me to be around longer than about 10 minutes after a show, any longer than that & I'm pretty sure I'd spontaneously combust. I can pull my stuff together for about 10 minutes or so to talk to them after a show then I'm like Jekyl & Hyde except my Hyde is a blubbering 12 year old girl who descends into madness pretty quickly, just blubbering, crying & talking incoherently.:D I'm always willing to pimp them out though.

    I have a length of waxed twine that I used for a handle on my latest one. I think it will hold up well. You an easily coat twine with beeswax to give it a protective quality. The twine handle was so much easier than the wire too!!

    Nightfisher replied to a thread Mechanical: Grave Digger Skeleton in Halloween Props
    I aged it with wood stain dabbed on with a chip brush, then gently dabbed off the areas I wanted lighter with a cloth. I posed it by removing the locking joints in the shoulders and hips to make the arms and legs "floppy" so they could be set where I wanted. The fingers were wired, scored with a hot knife, then bent and glued into a grasping position. The skeleton I used was very cheaply made and had screws connecting the torso to the spine so I was able to just reposition the upper body by...

    Thanks for posting this, Lizzy. This is a great resource for ambient music. And another great artist you may want to check out on Bandcamp is Samhaynes. He does some interesting stuff.

    THIS is the reason I love this place, it's a simple yet effective way to display something. So simple I never would have thought of it. I fully admit that I am totally stealing this idea because it's such a fantastic & simple solution!!

    It's about 19 inches between the wing tips. I recall these being sold by Big Lots a few years ago but haven't seen them since and not sure who makes them. I paid 10 for this and remember them being about $16.00 when new? Check ebay and also some of the online Halloween retailers to see if they still carry them. Might still be available.

    Sure, no problem! It's interesting how the doll found its way from North Carolina to your location.

    I found the name on that doll you posted in findagrave.com:

    findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GSln=Hanline&GSbyrel=in&GSdyrel=in& GSob=n&GRid=39635965&

    (I'm not sure why, but the symbol to post links isn't showing up for me so I don't know if this will display correctly)


    Although the death date is one year off, the month/day date is the same so it's likely her. Looks like she was from North Carolina.
