  1. Problem with Bernard the Butler sensor

    Halloween Props
    I just received Bernard from GR. I am having issues with his sensor. Either I can't stop him talking or I have to actually touch him to get him to talk. I can't figure out where his actual sensor is. Is it on the battery pack? I have several animated props that just move or light up, but...
  2. Ghost Bouquet Help?

    Halloween Props
    What about using some gray or off white skeleton leaves in the bouquet. You may even be able to manipulate the larger leaves to make roses or another flower. If you don't know what I mean by skeleton leaves--just google whatever color and skeleton leaves.

    Your basement is awesome. I especially love the dragon door lever--where do you find something like that? I tried searching online, but can't find anything along those lines. Thanks!

    Very impressive work--can't wait to see it all come together! How many people do you plan on hosting? Do you do all your own food and drinks on top of all this decorating? You must have super powers!
  5. Incorporating a serious memorial

    General Halloween
    How one grieves and honors loved ones is a very individual process--I think you should do whatever feels right to you and not worry about what others think of your choices. You can of course be considerate of others--but you still need to do what helps you. People do all sorts of things to...
  6. GrandinRoad 2014

    General Halloween
    I finally received my fire and ice spotlight--it is great. It looks kind of like fire, but regardless--I love the way it looks and it can cover a large area. Also got the fire and ice lantern--which is just okay. It does not show any lighting effect on the walls or ceiling around it--just...
  7. What's Awesome About This Halloween?

    General Halloween
    Going to get all philosophical on you--Just as life--Halloween is what you make it. I usually go crazy decorating, and having a big party. I love decorating even if know one sees it. Halloween is my wedding anniversary as well (28 years this Halloween) This year is going to be a very different...
  8. ROSS Dress for Less Halloween 2014 Items

    General Halloween
    Saw these lanterns which are very similar to the ones I purchased from Grandin Road --these are silver instead of black. They take two D batteries and they are $4.99 which is a great price. At my Ross store they were over with hair products, accessories--there is an "as seen on TV" section

    Shadowwalker--thanks for the pictures those are great! I had to laugh because I could re-create almost exactly what you have done--right down to the witch hats--I have those exact ones and also the lanterns on the table. If I could go that direction I would be set--I am just a little worried...

    Ghouliet I really appreciate all the ideas! I love having feedback and even if I do not use an idea exactly it sparks another idea so keep em coming! It is funny I was just thinking I had seen some pacifiers that look like fangs, weird teeth etc. and I was going to look for those--thanks for...
  12. Stairwell Haunt Ideas?

    Party Ideas. Experiences and Recipes
    One more--battery candles would add a nice touch also--they would be great on the steps, but for safety I would wire them to the staircase--the flickering of all those lights could be pretty cool--especially if you have any way to dim the regular lighting.
  13. All out of ideas... or maybe it's inspiration...

    Party Ideas. Experiences and Recipes
    what about if you zombiefy a game, book, tv show, or something else. Example-- everyone comes as a superhero that has been turned into a zombie. You could choose any kind of theme--but whatever they are they have been turned into zombies... I guess you could even turn it into a murder mystery...
  14. Covering Walls Ideas?

    Party Ideas. Experiences and Recipes
    I have used fabric (when you could but it for 99 cents a yard) or plastic tablecoths to cover all the walls--hung with tacks. Also have used creepy cloth with the hook thumb tacks. The really thin plastic sheeting for painting that you can get at dollar stores works well also and you can...
