I thought the "ice bucket thing" was just famous people being stupid until I finally saw what it was about. I would rather just donate to the cause instead of getting drenched but whatever gets it attention and lets people know about this horrible and debilitating disease is fine by me.

    I did this a couple of years ago and it was super fun! I didn't do it last year because soooo busy with new props and missed it :(, but I think I have a handle on it this year so I'm in. Can safely do 20 (using both pre-made and hand made embellished). -Z

    YES! I'm in, I'm in!!! :) :) Don't feel so bad about not doing the handmade this year Bethene.....you work hard enough around here as it is! lol I'm not setting a limit, & yes, I will even send cards out of country (for our international folks) Can't wait! If anyone is on the fence about this, let me tell you, visiting the mailbox after a long day & finding some Halloween cheer is so worth it - just jump in! It's so good for boosting the Halloween spirit...

    I have not posted in a while but here's my update: This wacky weather has caused some good things and some bad. My JBL seem to be completely unaffected, but my JoL think it's spring again and I have been pollenating females like crazy!. I had only 5 JoL left on my 8 plants, then this crazy weather hit. My existing pumpkins are turning orange and the vines are stretching out even faster and creating more and more little babies! I am overjoyed but I wonder how many of them are going to get big...

    Dan Augustine's site is up only during October, & he posts all the past comps too.....I check his site every year..... The Goodnight Whatever You Are is new to me, though.... One good way to find some awesome compilations is to check halloweencountdown.com - it's a list of lots of blogs doing anything Halloween-related, & lots of them do comps (though not as much as past years, I admit)....

    I can not thank you enough for the time you are taking to show us how to do all of this. Have been wanting to learn this for the longest time. I already have singing pumpkins but it's just one song and after about an hour of hearing it over and over again, i want to turn it off. Now I can add to the loop. THANKS AGAIN!!!! -Z

    I personally am still scared by my three volumes of "Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark" written by Alvin Schwartz and illustrated by Stephen Gammell. OMG that Stephen Gammell has given me nightmares many times over. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scary_Stories_to_Tell_in_the_Dark#mediaviewer/File:Scary_Stories_to_Tell_in_the_Dark_cover.jpg http://www.scaryforkids.com/pics/stories-to-tell.jpg

    We just got these new lights in our store, & the first thing I thought of when I saw them was, "Oh, this'll be great in a jack-o-lantern!" Why yes, I did get odd looks from my coworkers! lol But seriously, aside from the whole emergency-light use it's supposedly intended for, this'll add a nice creepy red light to my festivities, I think..... http://www.harborfreight.com/emergency-39-led-triangle-worklight-62158.html

    Long ago I wanted my dead body to be chopped up and fed to tigers in the wild. Now that I'm older I think that option would only hurt the tigers :p we're silly when we're younger :D Maybe now I'll choose to become chum (for sharks ;). IDK, to me there is something appealing about literally becoming part of the cycle of life.

    I am so jealous of you guys with different colored pumpkins. Would anyone be willing to give or sell some seeds? I have not found anything but "Jack O Lantern", "Big Max" and "Jack Be Littles" in my area for years. I want some cool pumpkins like you guys!

    I, personally, would gut it and make it into a costume. I find my best scares come from stuff that's not obviously scary, but "well played'. My current best hit at my haunt is my "bush" costume in which I just sit there unassumingly until people pass by and scare the pee right out of them :P You could have a "stuffed animal area/room and be in the costume and when people see it and wonder why this is in a haunt, you jump up and scare the life out of them.

    I'm so excited - this year I'm got TWO Spirit stores near me - the one a couple of miles from my house (it goes in that same spot every year), & a new spot down the street from where I work! This'll be the first year that town has a Spirit store! I'm so psyched! I don't know if there's any Halloween City stores going in around here, though.....I remember last year there was one like three towns away, but I don't pass that way usually, so I don't know if the "coming soon" sign is up....

    Well, there's bugs bunny's Howl-oween special, Fat Albert's Halloween special, & the usual contenders for Halloween, like the HalloweenTown movies, Hocus Pocus, Twitches, the Scary Godmother specials......& now we have that Shrek special & the toy story special to add to the list. I think Paranorman, Hotel Transylvania, & Monster Makers (Hallmark Channel movie) are good additions to the collection as well.... unfortunately, I end up hitting youtube for some of the out-of-print or...

    I took a small electric fan and mounted it inside the rib cage area. I then added a few nuts to one of the blades to cause it to be off balanced. Once the prop is hangin by a rope ( in my case a cable) and the fan was turned on, the off balanced fan caused a very convincing struggling effect. It was so good, someone called 911 while driving by my house one night...lol

    I can pin Halloween stuff on Pinterest & listen to Halloween music all year without tiring of it, but I don't start digging out the decorations & planning the events (whether they be at my house or stuff we go to) till September. We don't do a big setup in our yard, though - if I was able to do that sort of thing, I'm sure my planning would start earlier. My shopping habits for Halloween are an all year thing too, simply because I know that if I wait, it won't be there - especially at...

  1. I actually posted the pics in an album in my profile. Take a look. How good are you at welding? I think it could be done with Aluminum strips and metal screws.
  2. OMG that is too funny. While I was standing by the hearse and looking at the rig & how it was done (because I saw your post) I just happened to take some pics for you. My roommate thought I was crazy but I explained it was for someone on the halloween forum. I'm glad you sent a note because I was trying to remember who posted the original thread. Is there any place in I can send them? Or just try to put them in your thread?

    I didn't want to crash another persons thread, but it sounded like you were just at disney. I was wondering if you had pics of the horsedrawn hearse. Did you notice how the harness is held up to look like it is floating.
  4. Not any more than the coffin pics. next thurs (my day off) I will start the animation and post those. I'm not sure how I'm doing it yet but I have a plan in my head. Let's see if it works...
