    Thanks all :) :) :) It was a hoot to see. As I've said before, this isn't my original creation. I just took what Castle Blood did, somewhat followed the tutorial on the web and did my own take on it. But, certainly see the resemblance to the girl I made. Was looking at the dimensions of this and it's pretty tiny. Thinking in a graveyard might look a little weird and missing the whole point of it. The point was that the bride lost her Beloved and her grief was so intense she died keeping her...

    Yes - it's not illegal and you are right that it was because we had a bigger haunt. I was initially checking with him to see if we were covered in case of a lawsuit and he specifically said to not serve homemade foods (also don't advertise). The insurance wouldn't cover if someone became ill.

    Perhaps it was in regards to the possibility of making kids sick but my insurance agent told me that I couldn't serve food other than packaged candy.

    I love your creations and you are way ahead of where I was when I first started. What's neat about tombstone building is that every year the bar get raised higher and then they show how it done. That, in turn helps others build on the knowledge learned. Haunters are the most amazing people.

    Terra replied to a thread Static: Advice: Sealer for painted foam? in Halloween Props
    Many times I use acrylic paint (artists' paints) for details after it was base coated with Drylok. Because you used exterior latex paint that would give it the same protection so you are good there. I've never had problem with the details paint effects washing away so you shouldn't be concerned. You are good to go :)

    Terra replied to a thread Static: Drylock Substitute for Stones? in Halloween Props
    Not sure but if you strike out with Home Depot/Lowe's perhaps try Ace Hardware. They always seem to surprise me that they carry stuff I don't usually see at other places. I like the water-proofing characteristics of Drylok because I'm usually adding in details of things that were dipped in monster mud so I need it to be waterproofed. The pink foam itself doesn't need to be waterproofed. It's that way on it's own. I love Drylok not only for the water-proofing though. That grit does give it...

    Hee! Hate to be so basic about likes and dislikes but being very honest here: I would love anything homemade that shows off my reapee's love/art of making props/crafts. I guess the only dislike is gore.

    You could try what I did with the Demon Horse. You dip cheesecloth into the Drylok. It helps reinforce the Drylok like if you were fiberglassing. I named it 'Cheeseclothing'. Here's the vid (Fast forward to time stamp 3:12):

    My 4th was great! Had a good tax season. Purged a lot of costumes. Didn't have the room. Will have to readjust my photos. Thinking about doing Ichabod Crane or The Duchess for Halloween galavant this year. Checking out for some part time work.

    YARD HAUNTS!!!!!!! There are so many people who work in the "industry" here that there are so many good home haunts. My wife and I vist 4 or 5 awesome favorites every year and explore a handful of new ones. We hit 11 to 14 one year! A great place for yardhaunts, Halloween events and pro haunts is hollywoodgothique.com he has tons of great reviews and personal visits to most of the stuff on his sites. Hope you have fun! Oh one last bit of advice, checkout the ghost train, it is right around the...

    It's not a bug - it's a feature! This is a great idea and gave me an idea to use crumbled monster mud as an additional way to add age. Your new improved stone is terrific.

    I cut out two of my plants to try and spare the rest. They had TONS of tiny black bugs on the underside of the leaves of one plants and white ones undrr the leaves of the other and it looked like it was spreading. So now I have 15 of 18 but if I stop being lazy I might plant 3 of the bigger starts I have.

    Hey thanks. Yeah, I lived in Oregon and he lived in Kansas. It was difficult but in a way it was good. We literally talked two hours every night. So, we really got to know each other

    I think it's so neat that you both like to haunt. My hubby let's me dive into my hobby but he's pretty passive about it. Golf is his thing. But, on Halloween, he's my willing slave, heh. Take care...
