  3. Is there anything you WILL NOT do?

    General Halloween

    the scythe is attached with a screw to the shoulder (you can see it in the stick it's mounted to) and the blade is made of some 1/4" Plywood that I had kicking around, so I cut a notch in the broomstick, and screwed it on

  11. Static: Foam Skull alteration

    Halloween Props
    Thanks for all of the great tips! I ended up using a combination of a coping saw, and a hacksaw blade. I then screwed the jaw in, and made sure it was secure with lots and lots of hot glue. I'll post pictures as soon as the base coat of paint is dry

    I recently found a great styrofoam skull at my local Michaels' Crafts store, and I would like to use it as the base for the head on a animated zombie groundbreaker prop that I'm building...
