    Another day, another dead thing :D Won this set of jackdaw wings from the estate of a fly fisherman that was sent to eBay. Since they are vintage, what I do with them will depend on what I can do with them. Hopefully I will be able to incorporate them into a replica jackdaw supplemented with chicken or pigeon feathers, but if not, they'd make a great fascinator on a witch's hat. {rice was low enough to justify taking a chance on them. Goodwill yielded a huge real fur hand warmer made of...

    I went to a guys house from Craigslist to buy something from him and he had the dynamite blaster. I asked it how much and he said $15. They go for $3-$500 on eBay

    Some of the original Star Wars figures are pretty pricey, so are you sure that it was not a toy Yoda that the selling of the house financed?:p;) Worrying so much about having a similar display style as the neighbors sounds stressful... Go with what you find of interest, not the Joneses (Ackbars, Chins, Mugabas, etc.). If setting up is getting you down but you still want to enjoy Halloween, my suggestion is to take a break from doing so this year and visit a (hopefully) nearby area that...

    I love both the idea and the execution so much that for once I'm speechless. Terrific job, oojen - and lucky you, Hilda! What a great prop. Is the "glass" front panel made of plexi or ??

    Here's one of my Halloween themed decorations I leave up all year. It's a real dynamite blasting machine and a real medical skeleton arm.

    A few ideas of things I may be able to do for my fellow lab addicts down the road. Not guaranteeing anything except that they probably wouldn't occur any time soon except by chance: (1) IRL I am a rat person, by which I mean I am a large scale domestic rat rescuer and small time breeder. On my project list is sculpting a rat body form and creating an army of rat replicas in both regular and various oversized scales. I've also collected some super close-up photos of various anatomical...

    3pinkpoodles, you're expanding your beautiful mad lab? Oh wow. I can hardly wait to see you top yourself. Paint It Black, I knew there was a reason I was buying more plaster teeth than I strictly needed. Thanks for showing me why! Beautiful work. Ghost of Spookie, thanks for showing the Stringing It device. I'm intrigued. How does it look in daylight/bright lighting? ChrisW, your lab is beautiful and my jealousy over the gurney knows no bounds! I was a few minutes too late to buy one...

    oojen, I wasn't feeling judged, just taking the opportunity to expound that finding the ethical lines isn't anywhere near as easy as I expected it to be. I completely agree no animal should be killed for decoration, but it's rarely that simple. I try to stick to secondhand and vintage pelts when possible, but I admit some come from more ethically murky sources. Darn dot! I envision a line of dead fairies, demonstrating different hair and wing colors, all with an autopsy Y incision on their...

    Forum software ate my full reply, so here's my attempt at a more succinct version. (Cue laughter). I don't know that I've ever had so much to reply to in a thread this relatively brief so far. oojen, I loved your microscope even before you revealed its family ties. That's all kinds of fabulous. I paid a "HOW MUCH?!" price to acquire mine, which is extremely similar, and never regretted it for an instant. It's also clear that the love and appreciation of nature has continued through the...

    You have a good eye for detail, ooojen. I guess it stands to reason if we find Halloween art, it could be that of a fellow member here. I too love all the artwork created by a_granger.

    Thanks, MM. I have been having fun with this year's theme, and have lots of projects still on my list. Great tip on the Great Stuff. Maybe next time I won't feel the need to use it all, LOL. Are you decorating with a theme this year? I think I remember you saying probably no party.

    May I play too? May I, may I, may I? :D I see SO many wonderful props and ideas already, I'm going to have to wait to comment on all of them properly. This thread makes me very happy indeed! There's an argument to be made that I've been preparing to create a mad lab display my entire life, but even with that much preparation, I'm still a few years off from being ready to create one of my two dream haunts, one of which is a very "punk" take on Frankenstein. I don't have the skill set or all...

    GoS, neither of them were shot, to the best of my knowledge, although Caleb came awfully close at one point. I got the feeling that the dog running away was all in Norman's head, chasing after a long-dead, taxidermied piece. I am pretty sure that the girl was Cody, from when he worked as a stagehand or similar. I think that she actually was there.

    Hello all! In addition to Air Cannons, I am proud to announce the addition of a Air Horn Blaster and a manual trigger to complete your props for those who choose not to use a prop controller. I sold 18 of the air cannons last year and all purchasers reported they where happy with there purchases. My own air cannons functioned flawlessly last year and they were built the same way. Please see the attached phots for prices. Feel free to ask questions! The Air Cannon shoots a loud blast...

    One of my projects this week was an Easter Island style tiki mask idea from Pinterest. It is made from part of a detergent bottle. I added a couple layers of paper mache before painting it with craft paint and sponges. After the paper mache dried, I painted it black (of course, LOL). Then sponged it with a granite grey color after the black was dry.

    They look great! Have fun making them come to life a little bit more. I kind of got hooked on them last year, and must have painted about nine of these guys, LOL.

    ooojen, you have lots of cool lab stuff on those counters. I remember 3pinkpoodles' project was made from a toy kitchen, and then some shelves added around. The paint job on the whole thing was wonderfully lab-like. If you or family members have had orthodontia work, you may have some of these dental forms around the house. I painted some of ours up as zombie teeth. I know Hilda made hers into vampire teeth. Both ideas make pretty disturbing specimens!
