    Made the first purchase of the year. This little guy had to join my town - I love Zero! He's tiny, so he'll fit in perfectly in the cemetery. :D

    While my few neighbors have enjoyed my decorating for YEARS I'm still the only one. Live in a mostly ruralish area only a few houses on my little dead end road and the only one that has street viewable property. There has been a slight up tick on Christmas lights however... I'm thinking it's because it's more normal and more "city" folk have moved in to the area and built on their little 3 acre plots.

    For sides at first I use rolls of black plastic purchased from the hardware department. It can be clipped using office clips/ binder clips to the bars/poles at the top. just fold over an edge and clip it to the bar. If you look close at the skull dot photo you can see the office clips at the top holding sheets to the bars. We get lots of rain with just enough wind to be a problem here in the PNW so in the end for the big carport tarp buildings we get from harbor freight to make the sides we...

    I bought this last week for $5. The woman said that the sound was broken but could probably be fixed. She agreed to ship it to me and packed it up in lots of bubble wrap and sent it. Shipping was a little over $11 and well worth it. Sound does work, but I haven't done much more than pull it out the box and flip on the switch for a few seconds. I also scored a 6 ft. witch for $25. It was in a small town about an hour and a half from me. I have an ex student who lives there so I PayPal 'd her...

    Stinkerbell those are awesome ideas. what do you attach the sides to? I would love to do something like this but don't have poles or anything to attach sides to. I just looked at your link and saw the canopies put together. Duh, I never thought of that either! Smacks my head. We have had so much rain the past few years, I really wish I could use my large screened porch in the back yard, but hubby is adamant about not having them in the back. He is afraid of lawsuits and I keep telling we...

    We have everything from 8X8 shade canopies to the portable carport type tarp buildings from Harbor Freight. We have done dot and black/white strobe rooms with the smaller canopies. Did a funeral parlor scene one year using 2 canopies side by side. Some photos in our albums here https://www.halloweenforum.com/members/stinkerbell-n-frog-prince-albums-geo-boo-caching-event-2010-a.html Cheap black plastic sheeting can be hung on the bars using office binder clips to make sides. For the dot...

    I grow up with Walgreens... it was the go to place for testing our TV tubes, lol... getting our photos developed, the cute little 1/2 pint squares of Ice Cream and make-up. It was the only store open on most holidays so it was the place to run out to for last minute gifts for unexpected guests. TV's no longer have tubes to test. They recently changed their one hour photo printing to a machine that leaves a nasty curl in the paper so I no longer use them for that. I don't do make up... I'm...

    We used to go but over the years it lost it's appeal for us. Loved the smaller intimate feeling when it was held at the school. Still went when it moved to the BIG city and the hotel. We loved learning from the pro haunters, meeting up with the local home haunters and sharing info. Something changed a few years back, we became less interested in the classes and the vendors as mentioned were more local arts and crafts and a few actual companies in the Haunt business. Learned how to paint...

    Well sooner is always better than later, LOL, but I usually start when Michaels gets the new stuff in. If memory serves, that's usually around end July to early August. Once I see the new pieces in person and make those first purchases, I get bitten by the village bug and want to start my display. My dream is to someday have a designated spot where I could leave my village up year-round. I could do a lot more detail work on it if it was in a permanent location and I had more time to tinker...

    I pick up cases of bunny peeps for pennies They have a shelf life of YEARS printed on the packages. I then cut the ears in half and the bodies get 3 snips to make 4 "legs" and not I have either spider or cthulhu peeps. Pop 3 or 4 into a snack ziplock and they are the first things I run out of at Halloween.
