    We've done this since we started having our annual bash in 2004. Since our last move, we turned the Great Room into the hotel lobby/museum, we actually have Bloody Mary's Bar set up year round (I do add other stuff for halloween), the dining room is the dining room, the kitchen is the Choice Cuts Chop Shop, Guest bedrooms are witch's room & creepy nursery. My hall if full of pictures of all kinds year round, creepy & regular.

    Worst vampire....hmm..that's a very good question! Almost even better than who is the best? I'll have to think about that for while & see what I can come up with....worst vampire....wait...are we talking overall performance, looks, what?

    This, times 10!! It goes for decorating & parties for ANY holiday but especially the ones we love & like to go big for. Whether that's Easter, Halloween, Christmas or the 4th of July.

    Yep. I'll never grow ginormous award winning pumpkins, have a yard full of cool repainted blow molds, or make some of the super cool props others here make, but I definitely want to see ALL OF THAT here.

    After having been to the further away At Home fairly near Halloween last year I can say that they do a little bit of everything. From glittered cutesy stuff to generic Fall to scary clowns & bloody stuff. They also do moving props though IIRC they had a TON of inflatables. It's worth at least one trip early before everything is gone.

    Thanks! Yes, just water. The fur is still soft and pliable on the parrot. Full strength paint would make the fur too stiff.

    Try local Craigslist, Facebook Marketplace, local yard sales & thrift stores to avoid shipping. Etsy has them too & maybe you can work on the shipping costs with the seller, but sometimes they're cheaper sometimes not. Some big stores do sell them you just have to check closer to the date. And there's always Amazon Prime. You can find plenty of blow molds sellers on Amazon. If you hit the right one &/or Amazon fulfills it & you've got Prime you get zero shipping.

    Thanks :) I didn't use the latex on the second or third parrot I did. The latex ended up being like a straight jacket on the parrot. Limited movement on the parrot after he was coated with the latex. He looked good, but I didn't want to repeat that technique. Here are a few pics of one of the UV painted parrots I did.

    That must be GR date for the Halloween Haven stuff or pretty near the release of it all. Now that I have 2 At Home stores to check (one fairly close too) I'm sure they'll have Halloween out in 3...2...1....

    Not sure how I missed this but here it is! I like the look of it but it just makes me miss Raoul Julia even more. Yes, John Astin was first & best & great but when it comes to the movies I feel like Raoul nailed it as did Angelica Houston. Not sure if I like Charlize Theron's voice as Morticia in this but that won't stop me from seeing it, especially since it's being released for Halloween.

    I've done two other parrots since 2010, and used thinned down UV acrylic paints kinda dry brushed on. You could do the same with regular acrylic paints. The trick is not to use the paint too thick. You could also try airbrushing the paint onto the feathers which I did to get a black base coat on before painting him . Came out pretty nice. I'll try and find some pics.

    I love all these set ups but I'm far too lazy for such things, I generally plant my all my seeds in whatever I can pull outta the recycling bin!:D I'm also not growing giants or stuff for competition so I feel like I can use recycling for my stuff. So far so good. Yogurt cups work well for me as do salad containers, cut up milk jugs, basically anything that's not metal. I also have some actual leftover planting things from buying past years garden stuff & annuals. I keep the flats they...

    Ha Ha! The Dark Side! My aesthetic is more creepy, ghostly, haunted....I don't go in for blood and gore...and I try to keep it a bit kid friendly. I don't want to terrorize, just gently scare the wee ones. The fun kind of scared, that is how I remember Halloween as a child.

    Thank you SO much! It means a lot to me when someone compliments my haunt. I do spend a lot of time on setting it up, so even though most 'normals' don't get it, it's nice when my Halloween peeps do! Thanks again!

    Hey bmc. Thanks for the photo comment. We're pretty happy with the way the Beetlejuice tombstone came out. I was gonna leave the figures off because I didn't think we could pull it off, but my wife convinced me to include them. She also did the paint job which I think really makes it come alive (along with the lighting.)
