    Halloween Props
    This is my HM Caretaker head . It’s a V2 as I had to do a clay pour and resculpt some areas. Pretty much the same as my 1st one. These are available but they aren’t cheap either. A lot of time and hours went into creating this head. Here are some pics new and old. Thanks for looking!

  5. Pro Haunts

    General Halloween
    Now I don't mean to complain or anything, but this is something I've noticed for a long time and it hit me again last night as we were out going through a couple of local pro haunts. Why are they all so... cheap? I mean, it's like they don't even try most of the time. One place had so much of...

  10. QTiki Torches, Anyone?

    Halloween Props
    Our outdoor display uses a combination of LED spotlights and Tiki Torches. I picked up an additional 4 yesterday for $5 at a yard sale. We love 'em, because they're cheap, need no wiring and give off a rather creepy, flickering orange light. Anyone else here using these?
