    No problem. I found the idea absolutely hilarious and had no reservations about jumping in.

    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.

    Well, I would rather see that goofy-*** look than the stink eye that I received from the dumb (feral) cat close to my shed today when I got near it:D Which one is the main SOB?;) While there have been nice ones prior, I am another who cannot get over the variety of truly fantastic snowglobes available this year. Hell, add busts to that list, too...

    Garthgoyle replied to a thread It Remake in Horror Discussion Personally, I am very fond of the new appearance and think that the departure from Tim Curry's Pennywise was a wise move.

    Those gargoyles are stunning, tzgirls123. Great purchases all around. First is from TJMaxx and the second is from Marshalls/HomeGoods combo store, although they will likely both wind up carrying much of the same merchandise as time progresses. Each was $12.99.

    Well, while I have not seen the skeletal groom bust, I did spot the bride and she is quite a bit larger than the others, I would say.

    Want? Bought? What?! You are not limited to 100 characters here, in case you forgot:p;) Lately, it seems that most (if not all) of the items that are labeled as preorder are saying that they are out of stock when one clicks on them to see about adding them to the cart. Why not just say so in the first place? Good old Target:rolleyes:

    Any news on the items that were shipped to you, halo666fear? I am sure that the members who donated (thank you again to all who did) would appreciate seeing what their money went towards. Also, if you have received just one box, there is still another package on the way.

    Assassin's Creed would definitely be very labor intensive (but I do love me some AC); that being said, I think Eastwood's outfit is iconic.

    This costume originally was from Halloween 2014. I made it for Mickey's Trick or Treat event at Disneyland, I dressed as a Haunted Mansion-themed Mandalorian (Star Wars/Boba Fett). I was so pleased with how it came out, I wore it to Star Wars Celebration in Anaheim as well (second photo)

    Plus, be prepared to have the sign of the cross made at you if you look even remotely dark:p Of course, I am exaggerating - ever so slightly:D Which store are those smaller pumpkins from? They are quite unique.

    Here are both Day of the Dead LED candles. Nice size to each of them, plus the designs are gorgeous. The spiders repeat all the way around, while the skull is printed on only one side, as can be seen when photographed from a different angle. Batteries are included. When lit, they are a bit on the dim side, but I would think that the effect would show far better when it is dark.

    Personally, I prefer the more interactive ones from years ago, with the actors making their way through the various rooms full of props. They were darker in tone, plus I think that they were better. While I did like some of the room designs, this video more closely resembled a promotion enticing people to come visit a store/boutique to see the setup, a la Roger's Gardens (which looks truly amazing). After completing the survey (let's just say that they now know without question that I am not...

    Very nice. If a spider is going to make an appearance, I would suggest in the sizable gap between the vines near the second 'O', placed closer to the stem.

    Tuesday Morning also carries similar, should anyone interested in a witch doll have that store nearby. The only major difference would be the lack of (very subtle) green skin sported by Pier 1's version.

    I agree. Besides the prints, I do like the Boo Chevron Pumpkins, which have a darker, classy look to them. I cannot say for sure, but the prints only lit last year, so I would expect the same.

    No offense meant in the slighest to either yourself or slash, but donations are coming from many fantastic folks besides slash (who has also given and certainly does deserve a portion of the credit) to fund the cost of whatever items are going to be sent to you by myself (Harvester being among them, if that part has not yet been mentioned, so I urge you not to buy one in the meantime). I never asked to be put in charge of accepting the funds, not that I am complaining per se, but I have often...

    For 50 times the price of a used-up commercial star's remains, I certainly would hope that Trigger's carcass would be more impressive;)

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

    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:

    Thanks again, Marc V.
