Rite Aid has skulls similar to the resin versions that Walgreens used to carry, although they are $10 each (may be cheaper at the moment, since the Halloween candleholder that I bought the other day was on sale for 1/2 price).
Palladino, is the problem that you lack motivation for Halloween, or is it that you feel overwhelmed by being behind for Halloween? Those strike me as two separate problems. :)
(Also, is that a Coast brand rat cage I see your crows sitting on?)
I bought the beautiful blushing bride doll from Spirit Halloween. She and the other new one (cracked face) have different sayings than last year's trio. I hate to say it, but most of the products did not impress me and cost far too much.
The bugger is huge... If you were trying to check the price, it is $60, RCIAG.
The masquerade bust mentioned prior happens to be $50, not $60, as someone was thinking. The mask is loaded with glitter, unfortunately, which was going all over the face on the one that I saw:rolleyes:
Latex enamel has ingredients in it to make the paint level out more and not leave as many brush strokes plus they are usually gloss/semi gloss. That's not important for making stones so just stick with the cheap exterior flat latex paint.
The structure, the gold embellishments, the lettering, the colors, the skull on top, the lights, the mannequin and other inhabitants are all perfectly suited to a night circus. Amazing prop. Looking forward to the rest as they unfold!
Another, which I am willing to ship if desired.
* Animated Decor (Gemmy Floating Ghost, Strobing Skeleton, Tekky Flying Reaper, Screaming LED Beware Sign) - $75. Ghost and skeleton are new. (Rare) Reaper and sign are used, although both work well.
Fantastic scores all around. I am glad that Rite Aid was fair in honoring the butler's marked price, just_Tim, as he sure as heck is not worth $80.
I bought this skull tealight candleholder at Rite Aid today for a whopping $1.50 (on sale). They also had Frankenstein and Dracula, which were both cool but a little cuter.
