    wow Nice job! Wish I had a nice flat yard to do something like this. Your accent is adorable too. :D

    I don't typically spend this much on a prop but I received a special by email so it wasn't too bad and I will get it by Halloween and it's animated.

    Just a heads up for people, I bought a few of these because I thought they were "black lights" but they are actually purple. Here's a review on the HD site. Still good lights though but not if you're looking for that black light effect.

    Ghost of Spookie, RCIAG's a good guesser. "Bonecula" is from the 2011 "The Incredible Mr. Bones & Friends" collection, and the band members are from the 2010 "The Ultimate AfterLife Party" collection - (...

    Ooh RCIAG, that's a nice ceramic piece. :) In seven years, the few times I've come across that mold, they've been painted but not glazed and re-fired. I wonder...would it be possible to remove the glue residue with a nail polish remover that contains acetone? Some adhesives become brittle with age and can be gently chipped off. I use my nails to do this, but might be possible to do this with something plastic with a sharp edge. Not sure. A question I've had for a long time is how to add...

    Last Thursday at 8am I placed an order through Halloween FX Props website. It still says it is awaiting fulfillment. I have tried to reach out to them to get an update on how long it will be and no email back, called twice - no answer. I know it is their busy season but time is of the essence here (I need it by Friday). Does anyone know if they are having issues? Or know how long I can expect them to send it out? Website said usually 1 business day and its now been 3. Should have ordered...

    I have the best luck on Thursdays and Fridays at the thrift stores. Found a few things tonight. This 78" round, woven tablecloth is too big for my three legged table but looks like it will fit another slightly wider and taller table that I have. Paid $4.99 for it... Found a few smaller things too, such as a black plate for my ghost and jack-o-lantern display. When I put the plate on a black candle holder designed for pillar candles, I'm able to elevate the display off the table. Still...

    I live on the coast in the pacific northwest. We've got a wind storm raging tonight and another coming though Saturday night, so need to go to bed so I can get into a deep sleep before it really gets bad. Spookywolf, doin' the happy dance. Am loving your displays (and that spider freaked me out again this year...). Your Deadly Diva transformation...what a great idea. I like her a lot better dressed as a witch. She just needed a little help from you. I also got a kick out of seeing the...

    I'm thoroughly enjoying everyone's displays. So inspiring! Kwll2112 I have a basic question. How do you attach the webs and spiders to the ceiling and walls? (I also wonder how you can live in a house with a room like that. My assumption is that you like spiders and have no fear of them...). Eeeek! :)

    Keep in mind that I'm the type of person who needs to arrange and rearrange, lighting too, over a period of days to a week... That said, I like the green house and entry lighted with the black light, but I like the others too. :)

    Thanks! I use Par38 colored LED bulbs. I place them in the landscape lighting fixtures. The middle orange spot light is one of those from spirit halloween. I have been experimenting with the lighting. Here is a pic using LED black lights in the middle: I am not sure which way to go? I might be over thinking it a bit... Here is a pic last year using blue:

    Yay! Themed Boney Bunch displays, finally! Delighted to see that "King Kong Baby" compliments Scary Poppins. Need The Boos Brothers piece after seeing your second display. Your third and fourth are really cute. The two "Cat Lady" pieces work. Now we have "Crazy Cat Lady Sisters".... Wish I had that dog house piece now. It's a nice anchor piece for your display. Your BBW houses are impressive together. I have the house with the owls thanks to you all. Someday I'd like to back collect the...

    Glad to hear it. Can't imagine living anyplace where the municipality can set an official date and time for TOTing. Also agreed re: Daylight Savings Time being an overall negative, but esp. for Halloween.

    it snowed one year the day before we were going to have about 50 kids over for an outdoor Halloween party. I took out the lawn mower and cleared the back yard. It did the trick! Admittedly it was only two inches high and temps were in the mid forties the next day.. :D

    I haven't seen either an increase or a decrease in my immediate area, which is just a handful. But then again I only see what's out in my limited driving area. Maybe there's a street or circle all decked out nearby that I never get to see. Spirit, Target, Walmart and Michael's just to name a few have really scaled back their product this year. Seems like a few years ago might have been the "golden age" of in store retail Halloween products because it was everywhere and it was great. Maybe...

    I'm finding small things here and there in the thrift stores... A set of two black 30" Spider Web lace doilies by Heritage Lace for $2.99; another addition to my Waechtersbach mug collection, $3.99... A black lace door or window panel, $5.99, no lights but I still like it. I thought it was a lace tablecloth until I laid it out on the store's floor. This was a happy find...

Was losing hope until I found this one at Goodwill... It compliments one I found a few years ago - (and previously posted here; porcelain, made in Germany)...
