    http://wintercroft.com/collections/masks and his Etsy shop (US pricing): https://www.etsy.com/shop/Wintercroft?ref=l2-shopheader-name Stumbled across these and thought someone might get a kick out of them - there are many beautifully weird ones in the collection and they seem quite affordable considering the amount of design that went into making them (and look like they'd be fun to assemble).

    Sigh. Nope, not finished at all. Have a bunch of building still to do this weekend and a trip to the big box hardware store for wood and other materials. And we have major supplies still to go for our party too. My Halloween budget is the scariest thing I've seen so far this year.

    Neighborhoods are cyclilcal; kids grow up, empty nesters stick around for decades until they move away/pass away, and then younger families move in. Sounds like you might be in the latter half of waiting for some kids to move back into the area, I wouldn't give up, but maybe give yourself permission to scale back a year or two and judge the TOT levels you get and how much work you want to put into it. As long as you still enjoy it, I'd say keep going, since the few kids that come will...

    http://www.buycostumes.com/p/17472/rocker-wig-blonde-unisex-adult Jareth wig (pretty much spot on, might need some trimming up tho) LOVE the idea of a 50s Sally. A patchwork poodle skirt, but instead of a poodle, you could have Zero! (or Jack's face). But that would require some sewing skills... This wig might work for Sally: http://www.spirithalloween.com/product/black-and-red-doll-wig/58978.uts?keyword=red%20wig&thumbnailIndex=18 Those would be my two faves on your list anyway (but...

    I thought that was the same angel I used for my mini beloved stone, but its just similar. I got mine years ago at Big Lots in the garden statues (it's resin and about 3 foot high, for $15 on clearance). Garden statues are ALWAYS good for use in a cemetery type setting - angels, cherubs, saints, crosses... fall is a great time to find them for cheap. I just finished a creepy little prop this year using a rotating x-mas tree stand ...

    if the image is originally horizontal, wouldn't making it vertical mean turning the image sideways? Or are you simply referring to aspect ratio- that ot was originally in 16:0 and then you made into 4:3 so that it woulds fill up the height instead of the width. Victor

    Maybe acetate? I use it all the time for art projects, and you should be able to find it at art supply stores (or Amazon really). You can get it in varying sizes and thicknesses, and I've bought them in colors as well. There is also gel sheets used for theatrical applications - comes in colors too. Like these here: http://www.stagelightingstore.com/Stage-Lighting-Store/Gel-Sheets

    Many years ago when the very first newspaper reporter to ever write about my House turned toward my ancient broken down piano, i had no clue that he was a musician and would be playing a very simple, yet very eerie little tune for me. "What is that?" "Oh, it's from an old movie." So few keys, touched, yet creepy! Do you expect me to remember the name of the movie after 28 years? Not a clue.

    Agreed that tacky is relative. I like, and have always liked, a lot of things now associated with steampunk, BUT I do NOT identify as steampunk. And even though I'm not that much into clowns I DO kinda like that.

    First off, Thank you to all that have kept Bill and Tina in your hearts! Equally, they have had good news to report! Their landlords are working with them and being very understanding! They told them they didn't want them to move out. He got one of his old jobs back. Its not a great job but at least its one he enjoys and is reliable! She may still be able to avoid disability which is what they want. I understand as I was on disability for 4 years. They get to keep their furkids too! Again...
