    chubstuff, that's so awesome, lol. Less than 2 days and I already have about 85/90% germination of all my mini October pumpkin, daisy gourd, zucchini and cucumber seeds in their baggies. My main hold outs seem to be my zucchini seeds. Only one has germinated, so far. I really only need two plants, so I hope, at least, one more sprouts. All of the cucumbers germinated, and I think I have one hold out of each the gourds and the pumpkins. We will give them more time, though, because it hasn't...

    Sorry wickedwillingwench, I know what you're going through. My husband got what they kept calling a "good" cancer. Which used to just make me wanna slap 'em all because there's really no such thing. He had **bigwordsrecitedfrommemory** nodular sclerosing Hodgkins lymphoma, stage 2B about 12 years ago. He's fine now but going through chemo was awful. He didn't have to do radiation for reasons too long to go into here but it was a very long year going to Georgetown for chemo & then up to...

    Just wanted to give a different perspective on the head movement for this build. Here is how mine looks using a second deer motor mounted sideways on the creep's back. The motor connects to a L shaped linkage that runs up into the neck. The bend of the L pivots in a small eye bolt on the top of the skeleton's spine. I opened up the holes that the jaw connects to the skull with so that it flops open very easily, giving some mouth opening and closing action. Mine only goes up and down, but it's...

    I used to watch him on PBS in the 80s, long before it was a cool thing to do & just found him fascinating with his "happy little trees" & that huge Afro. I couldn't get over how he could create an entire landscape painting in 30 minutes real time (more or less). Oddly enough he was in the military & was the guy that had to be mean to the recruits & yelled at you all the time, a Sergeant in..wait....the Air Force. He painted in his off time & said when he got out of the service he wouldn't...

    LOL! Too funny! :D Well, the rest of my sunflowers have finally been sprouting in my greenhouse so, once the weather gets warm and not windy and raining, again, I'll get those planted out in the garden. I finally have my mini October Pumpkin, Daisy Gourd, Cucumber and Zucchini seeds all in their germination baggies. In a couple days, I should, hopefully, have some germination happening and I can get them potted. Once they get to first true leaf size, outside they will go!! All of them...

    Ours is the guy across the street, one house over. These people obviously used to or somehow imagine that they live way out in the country and conduct themselves as such. Dude parks his loud *** truck in the front yard across their sidewalk because the big driveway they have is reserved for cornhole and the multitude of appliances and other junk he accumulates hoping to strike it rich if the price of scrap metal ever comes up. He drives up his next door neighbors driveway, then cuts across...

    Yep. Slower cranking motor that raises the lid a bit more to reveal treasure inside. Position a skeleton behind the chest with his hands on the lid. so when the lid opens and closes the skelly will look like he is doing it. I envision a pirate skeleton who is trying to get the chest open to steal some booty!

    I don't want anyone to think I'm nitpicking or anything. You make your props however you want them to look. I'm a bit of a weirdo who thinks way too much into things to the point that it get a bit ridiculous sometimes. Who really thinks "now if I were a skeleton stirring a cauldron, how would I move my head" besides me? The kids really don't care and won't notice how it moves, only that it does and that's what matters.

    I have a question for you guys that use this type of head movement rig. Why are they almost always made so that the head turns when it goes down and straightens when it's up? If I were stirring a cauldron and leaned over to look into it I wouldn't turn my head away. Just seems to me (being picky) that the animation would look better reversed with the head looking down into the cauldron when it's down then turn to look at visitors when it's up. Just an observation and again, just me being picky...

    I found a small crate at work and decided to take a whack at the classic Monster In A Box prop. My version is made to look like an old box that might have been around for many, many years. I used a green light instead of the traditional red just to be different. The monster is an old dollar store vampire mask I did a little reshaping and repainting to so that it looked a bit more creepy and a bit less human. I used a little Bluetooth speaker I also found for free to make an ambient soundtrack...

    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.)
