    LOVE the arch. Hopefully one day I can make similar.
  2. Year-round Office Decorations

    General Halloween
    Well now I have to ask what you do... I'm presently in a facility that does not allow cameras, so unfortunately can't update much, but here's from a few years ago. The (in)famous purple pumpkin is used as a landmark to find me still. This trio still stands guard (minus the whiteboard...

    You guys continue to remind me how fortunate I am. For all the assorted problems our location has, we miss a LOT of the pest problems. The biggest issue we have right now is Rats. But that's largely because everyone seems to want to raise their own chickens now. Gee, let's toss free food...

    Corn donation from the neighbor. It's hard to get perspective on this thing, our largest. That's a 48" pallet to the back right. The grass is 12' or more. I saw a few other small big moose pumpkins have recently set as well, might even make it. Volunteer. I always seem to manage to...

    Great haul Mayor! Rains the last 2 days, more expected over the week, my patch is going to be toast with mildew at the end of that. Maybe 1-2 weeks left. I noticed today as we were bundling corn stalks (yes, a neighbor donated their corn stalks this weekend) the first of the big moose...

    Ok, Yep. Going Cushaw next year.
  7. How big are you going this Halloween 2019?

    General Halloween
    I've spent the last several years going relatively small (for me) due to life. Deaths, Jobs, Renovations. I'm using 2019 to set up for a huge 2020. So..."normal" for the first time in years to go big next year.

    Yeah, I thought we were done for when the mildew hit first, but this stuff seems to really do the trick! It was literally the only thing I could find at the time. https://www.bioadvanced.com/products/rose-flower-care/3-1-insect-disease-mite-control I think the drip line somehow got...

    General Halloween
    So, one of my vines has gone to hell. But only one. And it had no pumpkins on it... Our largest pumpkin, I don't know measurements or anything, but my rather uneducated guess would be 120-150 ish lbs. I'm particularly excited about this year's raven grass production. These were all...
  11. Painting Chromadepth 3D Panels

    Tutorials and Step-By-Step
    Glad to see this one back up, I just was looking for it for a co-worker who's just getting started and wanted to know how the 3d panels were done.
  12. 2019 follow along: Cadaver Tomb. Trevor 2.0

    Tutorials and Step-By-Step
    Since Trevor 2.0 is collapsible, I needed to hide the seams on the walls above. We thus cut 2x4s at the corners and attached them to the walls with great stuff. Primer Each panel got 2 coats of primer with the top coat being applied with a rag to hide the brush strokes. Wash coat 101...

    I'll throw mine in the gallery here. I used a reclaimed (thus free) solid core door for the top.
  14. Has Your Display Ever Triggered Police Intervention?

    General Halloween
    As I said, I have the neighbor across the street that really hated it, and this was EXACTLY their problem. I actually have solid numbers that show the impact as well. We moved in in Late July, and when I asked around, I was told to expect ~75 trick or treaters. That first year it was...
  15. Has Your Display Ever Triggered Police Intervention?

    General Halloween
    Or I'm playing the long game getting everyone used to the idea so my neighbors won't think twice when they see me cleaning skulls out in the open...
  16. Has Your Display Ever Triggered Police Intervention?

    General Halloween
    Twice. Once was our across the street neighbors who were dead set on me not doing halloween calling in a noise complaint. Which was summarily mocked by the responding officers. We've since come to terms with the neighbor in question. The other, however, bears note. Our next door house...

    Went digging, looks like early to mid August is about average for me on the mildew showing up. I know it feels early, but looks average.

    General Halloween
    I'll have to go back through files to see if it's terribly early here. But, I wasn't surprised when it sprang up a few days after some heavy rainfall. My tomatoes did not do well at all this year.

  20. Can we make Halloween more Halloweenie?

    General Halloween
    I spent a few years in Arizona (no DST), and it was indeed hard to wrap my head around the sun coming up at 5 am and setting 5:30-6 in the evening, but it made a lot of sense as it let the place cool off for those evening baseball games and activities. I would think a lot of the southern...
