    Oh cool... I LOVE using scrap stuff like cardboard to build with. This is looking REALLY good and I can see it's going to be epic! :D

    Thanks! Yes, just water. The fur is still soft and pliable on the parrot. Full strength paint would make the fur too stiff.

    Thanks :) I didn't use the latex on the second or third parrot I did. The latex ended up being like a straight jacket on the parrot. Limited movement on the parrot after he was coated with the latex. He looked good, but I didn't want to repeat that technique. Here are a few pics of one of the UV painted parrots I did.

    I've done two other parrots since 2010, and used thinned down UV acrylic paints kinda dry brushed on. You could do the same with regular acrylic paints. The trick is not to use the paint too thick. You could also try airbrushing the paint onto the feathers which I did to get a black base coat on before painting him . Came out pretty nice. I'll try and find some pics.

    I've done photo scavenger hunt type of games before. Especially easy if all your guests tend to have mobiles with decent cameras. :) For my photo scavenger hunt, I did 13 thirteens. I had either the number "13" or a group of thirteen objects. The first one was in the game instruction sign itself "the first one is free - this sign is one of 13! Take a photo and good hunting!" There were 13 spiders crawing on the kitchen wall. I had a entryway garland that contained 13 bats woven into the...

    Thanks for sharing everyone. Great pics! I recently picked up the Count prop for a song on Offerup, along with a bunch of other props. He's super cool! I really like the Scaretaker prop. I had Chuckles the Clown, but sold him to a friend after I painted him up in UV colors for my friends black light haunt.

    That is pretty nifty! I'd search around here in the crafts section - I'm pretty sure there are some great potion bottles, flytrap/weird plants, mandrake from Harry Potter, etc... that might work for your next project! I'd also suggest you check out Dave Lowe's site. He hasn't updated in a while (boohoo!) but his past projects are amazing and cool and most of the time made from cheap/free stuff... https://davelowe.blogspot.com/

    keithcorcoran's Maleficient's Castle throneroom (with just some minimalist setups that didn't require a full facade) from a little while back was pretty impressive (should be, the guy is a legend and amazing artist). https://www.halloweenforum.com/halloween-props/143342-maleficent-castle-entrance-throne-garage-facade.html

    We never used this to my knowledge. Completely unfamiliar with it. Our selling section is just more forum postings/subsections.

    Holy moly! I adore this, but the little mouse peeking out of the cake is also super awesome. :D It's so beautifully explained I almost think I could do this one... which is saying something! You didn't even mention your cake/rat setup either and that really sold the whole scene to me. Really, really love this.

    I still have my beautiful metal welded one made by HF member Pugsley way back when. It is a thing of beauty, and I don't think I'll ever get rid of it even if I end up retiring from full-on decorating. That thing is easy to store and is so awesome and easy to set up. Good luck finding a decent rig out there!

    Thanks! You Rock! Just ordered three....in case I screw it up.

    Thank you for the response. I do love how your stone turned out. Do you have any idea which mask you used from Spirit? I haven't found one that looks that much like Madame Leota. I may have to wait for next year, but I'd really like to get her finished this year if possible.

    P.S. I dig the minion.

    Hello, I was just admiring your Madame Leota tombstone. Did you carve the face? I am trying to build one for this year and I love how you did yours with the moving eyes. Did you do a tutorial by any chance on how you made yours?
