    You can do a silicone lifecast and pour up tinted flexible polyurethane foam in it. Materials for both are available from Smooth-On. Body Double Silk lifecast with plaster bandage jacket, and flex-foam-it 6 or higher for the casting. They have urethane pigments you can use, as well. You'll find info on their website about the process.

    My set of framed specimens arrived today. Despite still being a bit skeptical, I was pleasantly surprised by the size and quality when I opened them. If anyone has been debating, I would recommend springing for the four pieces before they sell out, particularly at the current prices.

    All are phenomenal looks, Burgundy. Even if the last costume did not get completed, the makeup job is outstanding.

    Loads of great picks, everyone. I have heard many, but a good amount are new to me. The radio stations really need to play that song by Ed Sheeran...

    Did anyone end up receiving the items that they ordered? Despite mine being cancelled at the beginning of the month, apparently, I was never even sent a notice, which is a pretty crummy practice; I only found out today, due to curiosity on my part, by referencing the e-mail and clicking the link in it to track the order and inputting that information.

    I found them the other month, when there was also a sale, and bought the gargoyle on the left, who seems to be taking a page from Eeyore's playbook and sighing, "Oh bother..." As light as they are, there is no way that either is worth $20, but $10 is a spectacular buy.

    I grabbed this (heavy) glass skull at HomeGoods a few days ago. It is around the size of a mask display head. I made sure to take a photo of the tag, in case that may be of help. There is also another that is far more blue.

    Yes, over the computer makes it difficult to tell how to take a statement (if ever in doubt regarding myself, go with sarcastic and you will be correct at least 8 times out of 10:rolleyes:). Thanks, Burgundyblack. I thought about joining the club a couple of years ago, but I never did, mostly because there is no set location for get-togethers. I remember the other thread. Are you going to?

    The pieces look more glossy than shown at the site, which makes them pop more than I had expected. Thank you both for the photos, ooojen and Hilda. Since the price is so low, I opted to just go ahead and purchase the set, in addition to the skeletal black cat (which I was kicking myself over missing last year). A good amount of the sold-out items have returned... and there is free shipping, along with 10% off, until April 20 (XXW24304).

    If anyone who has the framed specimens would be willing to take and post photos of them, it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, from somebody who is on the fence at the moment (perched, waiting and watching;)).

    Glad that your family is so supportive and wants to help bring the vision to life. I am sure that the neighborhood will be ecstatic, based simply on what I have seen of your mask collection alone. All the best.

    I have been called nearly every name under the sun by buffoons who have no tolerance for anyone or anything different. That does not include the stupid comments, nor the parents laughing right along with their pointing children, rather than correcting them. Basically, I just shrug it off and chalk the behavior up to ignorance. The same can be applied to the virtual world. Take that for what it is worth. Two different genres, but both songs have the same perfect message...

    When I worked at Halloween USA in the early 2000s, we were forced to remove our hanged men props from the front windows. If I recall correctly, the news did a big write-up, in addition to the television coverage, which played a large part in the hoopla, since many people are nothing more than mindless lemmings. Despite a personal incident in my life, I am not offended in the least by anyone choosing to use a hanging body. My philosophy is thus: If you do not like it, simply avert your eyes.

    I like the frames of the specimens, although the body parts look terribly unrealistic/unfinished with that color scheme, in my opinion, particularly the eyes. I keep hoping that this coffin candleholder from a few years ago will make a return, or that something similar will turn up...

    That is a fantastic frame. It is worth checking the section with the candleholders, since some types (footed hurricanes, metal candelabras, scrollwork candlesticks, etc.) would work perfectly with Gothic decor. Interesting paperweights turn up in the glassware/dinnerware section, which also houses various types of goblets and, at times, darker plates and bowls. Venetian masks pop up in the home decor portion throughout the year, and some of the other items that turn up are certainly worth a...

    No big deal... Even if you are just starting, your tracks certainly do not sound amateurish. It seems that you are on the right track. Good luck.

    Hey there. Are you still offering instant slime samples? I am thinking it might be just what I need for my haunt this year.

    I got the samples of the instant slime the other day. My girls and I played with it and they helped my write a review for it under the REVIEWS section of the forum. Heres the link: http://www.halloweenforum.com/produc...ml#post1119900

    Thanks again, Marc V.
