    We found blow molds at yard sales for .25. The orange haunted house is my favorite, and one of the rarest. E-bay for maybe $50.

    Ohhhhh the red glass is so beautiful! Yes PIB. You have a good memory! I do have some of the tabletop blowmolds. I really do love them. I put them in my front window for a few years, but am afraid of fading if I keep doing that, so I have to figure out a new way to display them.

    I'm confused. The mask you "made" arrived today? Not sure I understand...but I'm looking forward to seeing it. Looks like its going to be a GREAT costume. By-the-way...I'm partial to the classic Universal Monster films too. :)

    Hey guys, this post isn't necessarily Halloween related but I can use this for Halloween. I'm attempting to make a muscle body suit using upholstery foam. A base for this that is used most often is a spandex body suit or top and bottom. Some people use a morph suit for this. Here's my question, does anybody know where to get cheap, no name versions of the long sleeve shirt and leggings? I'm trying to avoid paying $30+ for a shirt and another $30+ for the leggings, or $50ish for the morph suit....

    I need to stay out of a_granger's photo album of labels... I just can't stop!! :) Here's a few more bottles put together using her wonderfully creative labels. Pygmy Skulls, Night Terrors, Putrid Pond Scum, Esense of Ogre, Black Water Tapeworms, Dried Rat Tails and Slug Juice. As I was pouring the green bubble bath into the wine bottle, my five year old wanders in the room and asks 'What's that?' I say 'It's Essence of Ogre'. He says 'What's that?' I say 'It's like ogre sweat.'...

    I have a couple blowmolds. ;) But I am not a collector. It just happened somehow. I do love the vintage tabletop blowmolds that are shared above. :)

    Those Beistles are cool. Are they all original? Some of them are worth a good dollar these days. The Motionettes are great. We have 3 right now.

    I think I can be of some help after reading this thread. I never get tired of posting my Halloween specials collection, especially if I can help by giving info on cool shows. ;) Some of these will never be released or seen on TV again, but maybe you can find a few on Youtube. Collected these first on VHS years ago, and upconverted and burned to DVD. Some of these are excellent, and never grow old, especially the series America Haunts and America's Scariest Halloween Attractions, the latter of...

    Some more blow molds. Also, on the fireplace mantle scene, you'll see some lighted ceramics. We originally bought these at Giant, a regional food store. There were a few in the series: Mummy, Headless Horseman, Witch with crystal ball, and ghost with pumpkin head. We bought 3 and never got the witch, but years later, thanks to a website called E-bay, I finally found one, and for relatively cheap. I don't think there are any others, but I would say I collect these too. ;) These are very rare.

    I would say we all collect Halloween items to some degree. But what specific Halloween items are your passion? I like to collect vintage blowmolds, Halloween Yankee candles, food magazines, and am starting to collecting vintage items as well, some of which can be very pricey. I also like Halloween LED candles, which fortunately are not. List your collections, and pictures would be cool as well.

    I agree, use one of the themes that you particularly like, tweek it a bit, and go from there, and use the time not creating new props, to decide how to best use your new yard, have fun! it sounds exciting!

Halloweeny Art at KC Art Museum

by Terra on 04-27-2013 at 03:08 PM
Finally was able to drag the hubby to our art museum in Kansas City called the Nelson-Atkins Art Museum. It's a first class museum and if you are ever in town - you may want to spend a few relaxing hours there. This visit I found myself gravitating to the Halloweeny-looking art items and thought I'd share them here.

First though, here is a couple iconic shots of the museum because you may recognize it:

Chained Werewolf - Pneumatic: Tutorial

by Terra on 04-11-2013 at 02:28 PM

Have finally discovered the best use of pneumatic props - as a distraction! Yes, it is counter-intuitive to spend all that time and money making a pneumatic prop just to use as a distraction but today's ToTs are more sophisticated. They look for all the signs of a pneumatic prop so use that to your advantage. All you need here is a ToT taking a second or two hesitation
