    Thanks Dave. The transportable need is so I can fit the boards in the car to get them home from HD. We have 2 new sedans with liftback/passthru trunk area that I can put longer things in through but the exact length could be an issue. 6 feet shouldn't be an issue. 8 not so sure. In fact I'm thinking of using some of the folded insulation sheathing I have at home for the front of the posts. The insulation is 4' x 50' (like these) and I can cut into 6 or 8ft sections.

    If anyone purchases the LED flashing cone lights for their projects and is having an issue with it not seeming to work, might be that the batteries are not properly installed. There are indications on the battery holder and the top of the light but not obvious as the indicators are the same color as the lamp. I took a black Sharpie to my light to make it easier to see and get set up quickly. No instructions in the box they come in. I bought my lights off an ebay seller in Chino, CA as I got a...

    I could go with a 8x8x16 inch concrete block for a wider post base and the resulting foam panel would be wider than the 5 inches with the half blocks and it would look more sturdy. From HomeDepot the cost would be 1.60 (8x8x8) or 1.90 (8x8x16) so not a huge cost difference. The longer length block is 31 lbs however and not sure if I want to be lugging those blocks around. If you were doing this project what way would you lean for planning the base? Plan to start with one test post next week...

    Determined to pull off the dino theme this year and working on an idea for an electric fence to cordon off areas where I will be using AtmosFear's Dino Experience projections for "live" dinosaurs. I'm trying to keep the cost down, easy construction (limited tools), materials need to fit in my car for transport, and hopefully a convincing fence look in the end. Here's my rough drawing of what I have in mind. Here's some of the materials: 1) concrete 8x8x8 in. block, interior hole...

    Looks like Total Home FX has a few new projections (titles are linked to product). These are designed to work with a mesh kit for a holographic type of result. Zombies Dancing Witches Tale Frankenstein Monster Dancing These are for their tombstone kit:

    Ghost of Spookie replied to a thread Prop Showcase: What Are You Making this Year? in Halloween Props
    I want to construct some "high voltage" electric fencing for my dino setting and I tentatively have an idea to explore on my next visit to HomeDepot for the base and posts. Limited tools and skill so KISS is the guiding principle. ;) I have some of those red LED flashing traffic cone lights that I'm expecting at the end of this week to top the posts off with. Must remember to plan how I'm going to turn them on if they are 8 feet high, hopefully without pulling out a ladder for each one! Some...

    Apparently Grandinroad has had a 20% off sale, including halloween. Unfortunately only just now saw it and it ends at 11:59pm ET/8:59pm PT. Prices are as marked on the site. Guess maybe we should be checking back more regularly.

    If you are looking for halloween items now, HalloweenExpress.com currently has a 30% off, no minimum sale going on for Cinco deMayo but it’s site wide so includes Halloween items. Use Code 5MAY2019. Doesn’t say but probably over after the holiday. https://www.halloweenexpress.com/ Typically SpiritHalloween has seasonal discounts of 20% off with their coupon for one item so this isn’t a bad pre-season sale IMO.

    Not seeing a banner for the new weekly sale yet but in looking through some of the projection titles saw that Eerie Eyes Collection's Spooky Eyes projection is 1/2 off (was 5.99, now 3.00). Not sure how long this price is good for as it seemed to be an unadvertised item at this point. https://atmosfx.com/collections/decorations/products/eerie-eyes

    My poor electrocuted (and partially dino eaten) electrician working on those high voltage lines at the dino park arrived today. Not bad for the price. I'll probably give him some arm stuffing and might make a rib cage for him out of one of those DT pool floats so he looks like he got ripped apart while BBQing on the electrical line. And add some park logos on his orange vest and construction hat. He didn't come with batteries and don't have the time to play with him until next week but wanted...

    Ghost of Spookie replied to a thread Atmosphere Effects: Star Trek projections from AtmosFX in Halloween Props
    I guess it depends if you have kids at home and do birthday parties. I do tend to look at things as, can it be halloween useful? I was shocked, delightfully so when I saw the Dinosaur themed ones when they came out since I had been adding to my HomeDepot/Walmart/CVS skeleton dinosaurs and wanting to do a halloween theme with them. The skeleton ones will be on display like a museum and then there will be the caged area ones that move thanks to the projections. Then I'll try to add in animated...

    Ghost of Spookie started a thread Atmosphere Effects: Star Trek projections from AtmosFX in Halloween Props
    Something new from AtmosFearFX. Star Trek Beam Me Up projections. If you are a Star Trek fan, resistance will be futile! Not sure how people would use this in a haunt but sure someone will find a way...maybe the Borg are trying to board and collect alien species? or maybe you're a Discovery fan and use one of the beaming crew members as an introduction to a world you are about to explore? A number of ST crews to chose from. ...
