  1. Kinda sad

    Off-Topic Stuff
    I just saw a story on Yahoo https://www.yahoo.com/news/cemetery-bones-tossed-trash-families-034139172.html about a cemetery that was left in disarray. It's so sad but I know it's happening more and more. Frog and I hunt out cemeteries on our travels and those in the card exchanges get a chance...
  2. Hey inflatable people. Questions

    Off-Topic Stuff
    Putting this here as I've just bought my first inflatables and have questions. While they are "halloween" inflatables, we're going to be using them for Christmas, so I didn't want to clutter the general thread. 1: Can you modify inflatables? We'd like to add santa hats, for instance, if...

    Halloween Props
    Hi guys, So in the spirit of my pumpkin sentinel and funeral hearse I found this perfect sign to go in my yard to drive the effect home. Never seen one like it and it's pretty impressive. Solid, sturdy wood and nice graphics and routering. That said, I want to "relic" it a bit more. How...

    Halloween Props
    I was on Design Toscano's site today looking at their dragon and gargoyle statutes (on sale and additional discount today too btw) and saw that they had a Care Instruction which I thought might be helpful to share. Pretty much what you'd expect. I've bought a number of these statutes from Design...
  8. Two Thumbs WAAAAAY Down For Big Lots Customer "Care"

    Merchant Reviews
    Big Lots customer "care" sucks, and not in a good way. My dragon skeleton arrived looking like the box had been to Hell and back and, of course, when I opened it, the main joint that supports the wing is broken. The "care" representatives told me that, if I reeeeeally wanted one, I could call...

  13. Tutu Too Poofy

    Halloween Costume Ideas
    I've made a no sew tutu for Mickey's Halloween Party, but I've decided the silly thing is too poofy. Does anyone have tips or experience for getting tulle to relax quickly? Right now, I've got it damp and wrapped tightly in a towel. I don't care if it's somewhat wrinkly (it's part of an Oscar...

    Halloween Props
    ... or something like that. :rolleyes: As some of you may know, I've been redecorating my bedroom to better reflect my tastes, and in the process I've ended up with a mini-haunt. One of the things I really wanted was a curio cabinet for all my collectibles (read: items I spent more money on...

Here are some care tips for storing you latex props and masks for next year. 1) Clean your latex! If...
