    Hey you, I hope you have a great Thanksgiving! I've just about totally finished doing the mad Halloween clean up but have now entered full on Thanksgiving cook mode. I've already been at it for days but tomorrow will be the big hoorah. Do you have anything planned? I hope whatever it is it turns out to be a nice holiday! Happy Thanksgiving. Oh... Thanks for the really nice comments you left on my Voodoo thread. :)

    Hey FH, thank you for the nice comments you left about my voodoo on the bayou pics. It means a lot to hear from fellow haunters! Especially ones with a set up as lovely as yours!

    Everyone seems to have given you all of the most-right answer(s). When it comes to grieving there can be many acceptable methods. A cousin of mine had his Wife die very suddenly at a young age. He asked if he could personally dig her grave, with a shovel, which he was permitted to do. When bad or sad energy can be focused upon something needed and productive I think the act diminishes the confusion and mental anguish.

    Hey chica. Glad to hear about the raise. I can only imagine how happy that made you and how much that will help especially at the holidays. That was really nice that Your daughters friend gave her such a nice gift. I probably won't be able to get that "thing" off before maybe next week. I am making a part of it. I also want to know if she drinks wine? I have been trying like a mad woman to Halloween packed and put away before thanksgiving. (Like a lunatic I decorate for Thanksgiving.) I got...

    Thank you, thank you, thank you for your calls. I have been seriously under the gun trying to everything packed and put away before thanksgiving. (Like a lunatic I decorate for Thanksgiving.) I got most of Halloween wrapped up last week. I still have a couple odds and ends to pack up in the house, but not much. The Basement and attic are finished. Even though I organized and packed up my garage bins I still have to reorganize out there. There are a lot of big things I need to find better...

    Halloween is still my favorite holiday, but I do also decorate extensively for Christmas, too. I use my Gemmy Light Show Box with the music pumped into it from a CD Boombox. And I use a small FM transmitter to send the music to car radios for the passersby. Here's a video of last year's display: Here's a video walkthrough of the yard showing the lights and props (no music): http://vidmg.photobucket.com/albums/v630/DaveNTracy/Christmas%202013/053_zpsb3e8ddb5.mp4

    OK, Mike! I hope you have time to grab a few driveway alerts. I might stop by and pick up one or two myself. Actually, I got a sales flyer in the mail today from Harbor Freight with a coupon good now for something called a "Wireless Security Alert System", but it looks like the Driveway Alarm. Price $13.99 w/coupon. Those two books sound really good. I though you already built moving props? This site is very helpful for making moving props: http://www.robives.com/mechs Have a safe...

    Sound can be startling,scary. A man gave me an old cheap 'stick" vacuum cleaner he got for nothing because it made this Gawd-awful racket when it ran! I thought it would probably not be running, making any sound much longer, but I still hid it inside of a wrapped torso in a huge Spider web, that hung above where some customers would be seated for awhile. It worked scaring people Very Well! It kept running for YEARS!? When it finally quit, I opened it up and surprisingly the only thing...

    If you can't find any other option, let me know, Mike. I can run up to my Harbor Freight and pick up some for you. It's about 7 miles from my house.

    Thanks a lot, Kurt! I'll definitely try to be as involved as I can. Muffy, I can't think of anything I would have changed about our group. I think we all just did the best we could with the short times we had together.

    Survey says: People hate chainsaws much more than mere Clowns! Chainsaws are dangerous mechanical devices, carrying potentially explosive fuel, Chainsaws operate at high temperatures with very hot surfaces, They make air pollution, don't use indoors! they create noise pollution, don't run them inside a tiled locker room shower or a meat locker. Remove the chain, the hot surfaces will still be able to burn you and if running, the rotating sprocket drive gear can still tangle up hair (this...

    Very clever and impressive! My wife wanted us to have a different kind of a scavenger hunt here in 5,000 sq. ft. of house. There already are many features here to make it very interesting for most people. But then , just having them play Hyde & Shriek is simpler...but then....hhhmmm?

    A word of warning. A "Haunted Woods" has a different group,like a Fire Dept. or Boy Scouts,or a Service club man the haunted woods each year, which seems to be a nice way to run it.. except the actual reason for the annual changing of the Guard might have more to do with the workers not realizing upfront that scared drunks can punch you very hard, and if your helper is a teenager, "Mommy And "Daddy" will NOT be "Happy" seeing this happen. I can be much more than just a "Walk In The Woods"....

    I'd like to be included on all the information about the group. But I can't promise when I could make it to an actual meeting. I was in the old N.C. Haunters group.

    Very helpful information. When you first start sculpting you immediately figure out why artists study muscular structure first. (I had to move this thread because the tutorial section is for member created tutorials).

    It can be quite the power-trip to feel in control as you watch motorists drive around the block to see something that you have made or set up. Maybe someone who might have experienced being in trouble for distracting traffic could tell us all about how they might have fared with the legal system ? I made a huge skeleton, made him opening an upstairs shutters, leaned him out with his arms spread almost like wings as he held on to the shutters. I was living on Clay St., the major road...

    Hey Otaku, where about's in Southern BC have you been. I live on the West Coast, in the Upper Fraser Valley in a small city called Chilliwack BC. I'm about a 15 minute drive from the Abbotsford/Sumas Border Crossing, little less if I forget to watch my speed,lol. And about a 1 hour drive East from Downtown Vancouver BC.

    Hello Otaku, I just love your Angel on the porch. I'll have to send you a picture of the 2 I purchased, I'd love to know how you have her illuminated? And I can't wait to see your current project when she's finished. Loved the album pictures.
