  3. Prop Showcase: The Nightmare Before Christmas

    Halloween Props
    I decided to do The Nightmare Before Christmas as my theme this year, for the 25th anniversary of the movie. There is so much material there to work with.

  4. THAT Orange Halloween CD -- post yours!

    Halloween Music

  7. Static: Wine barrel jack o lantern

    Halloween Props
    Found this on CL. Seller started out at $750 & is now down to $400 asking price. Probably an easy prop for many of you if you can find a barrel for a decent price. Seller has a fire & ice spotlight inside & reinforced the wood with screws around the cutouts. Nice big prop.
