    Selling this awesome RZ Michael Myers mask known as The Destroyer, $200 shipped also on eBay. I just got it today and is unused it is just a tad too small for my big head.

    Just threw this together, took about 8 hours. Coffin also has red rope lights inside for a little added effect after dark. Lid rattle pattern is random so it's a little different each time.

    KrushR had posted a roll of plaster cloth from Amazon on the "What Did you but today?" thread. I really don't like paper mache so I thought I'd give this a try. So happy I did. This pumpkin was made in under an hour. I just added some reinforcements to areas I felt were weak. I expect to be...

    I'm doing a creepy carnival this year and wanted to include a few authentic gags. What's more fitting than a working electric chair? Now because you should have a vast knowledge of how this works before attempting to try it, I'm gonna keep quiet as to how I did it. That being said it is safe and...

    I wanted to do some internal lighting in the skulls on my pillars this year. I ran across Phillips Hue in the off season and just installed one. Pricey? Yes. But the effect is insanely awesome. You can create fire amongst the skulls for added affect. Endless amount of color combos to create...

    I love the Spider Lady but I just don't need her anymore. She's very pretty, that clear side of her face lights up & she works. I added a ton of spiders to her because she only came with a few spiders. She also has the same weird hard plastic hands that Helsa has. Same as the Shrinker...
