    Still putting things back together, believe it or not. Just unpacked storage and have started to get the shop put together, pictures soon. The yard is an absolute disaster from the remodeling. Debating how 'big' we'll go halloween wise, vs how much we just work on the yard. Depends on whether I can budget up a new patio for the back yard or not.

    99% sure you could just use a plaster of paris skull *provided you're just going for looks and using a propane fire pit, not trying to cook or use it as refractory for actual heating*. I don't know if any of my plaster skulls don't have foam in them anymore, but if I find one, I'll certainly throw it on the fire pit and see if it explodes or something.

    I'm sure Gym will be by soon... I was told our house was haunted, someone died during original construction, and whatnot. I've yet to see any evidence here. I used to work at a place that was widely considered haunted. Picture that warehouse where the Ark was stuffed in Indiana Jones. Yes, govt warehouse with assorted large crates just like that. No I can't tell you what was in them. Yes, TOP MEN were working on that as we speak. Anyway. Equivalent of 4 football fields...

    Yeah, they're updating the entire building, buying all new. "This 80s tech stuff needs to go." A lot of it is just too big to save. Massive drill presses, table saws, radial arm saws, etc that each would fill my entire garage. Projectors will be going out the door soon. None of them have HDMI inputs, so are "worthless".

    You never know what kind of stuff ends up in the trash at work...(and a little project I'm working on on top). First piece for the new shop. For those wondering what the heck it is since the cell phone didn't picture it well, here's new ones:

    My brother repairs musical equipment. He gave me a bunch of burnt out amp tubes, which made some interesting bits. I also hit up some TV repair shops and got all sorts of fun gizmos that were 'broken'. (BE ADVISED, old TVs um...have bits that can leak god knows what the hell that was.) Vacuum repair shops if you have them, too.

    Crappy video of when I was selling some of my lab equipment, made to show the local group what everything was, but shows a lot how I built things I see a couple tesla balls in the pic you posted, and they are cheap enough these days to use as part of a prop.* The cheese ball bucket typically found at wal mart several times during the year makes a fantastic lab jar.

    City theatrical flicker candle is what I'm going to buy. It looks exactly like what they use.

    JW, that candle is pretty cool but I found the identical candle used for the HM exterior (or pretty damn close to it). I just don't see the dream candle being used outside.

    The dueling ghosts paintings are incredible!
  4. Thanks to all of you for your wonderful complements!!! I really appreciate all of them!! If any of you have decorating questions feel free to ask anytime.. As for the Question from "Lord H" These candle props have not been released until recently They Have always been a Disney secret... You can now get them for yourself, at a price. They are pretty expensive but look extremely real. They are called "Dream Candles" They have them in pillars and also tapers. although the taper candles are a bit of a project to find. You can find them at good luck... cheers
