  1. Black cat sitting on a fence

    General Halloween
    Found this adorable hollow concrete cat a while back. Today I decided to paint him black & perch him on a fence post. There are strong wooden dowels inside so he isn’t easily stolen or knocked off.
  2. Other: Electrified Fence for dino theme

    Halloween Props
    Determined to pull off the dino theme this year and working on an idea for an electric fence to cordon off areas where I will be using AtmosFear's Dino Experience projections for "live" dinosaurs. I'm trying to keep the cost down, easy construction (limited tools), materials need to fit in my...
  3. A new look for our yard

    General Halloween
    The mermaid skeleton came! She is gorgeous!!! Rather than a typical bone color, she is kind of grayish, with a bendy tail. She'll certainly look better than our old mermaid, which was a regular Bucky type, with a homemade tail. Due to a house move, we couldn't Halloween last year, and when I...
  4. Anything from the Halloween Expo?

    General Halloween
    All I'm seeing is kids posting videos on youtube showing the concrete floor and very little props.I did see they repainted the winter dragon ,now it's the FOREST DRAGON (lame) I see Gemmy has a new Pennywise but not one good video of it.
  5. Distressing overalls

    Halloween Costume Ideas
    So I am going to dress as a scarecrow this year. I picked up a real old farmers scythe from the flea market and I have a GrimStitchFactory mask. I cannot find overalls used anywhere, I have been looking for 6 weeks. I am going to be forced to go to a Tractor Supply store this weekend and buy...
  6. Need help finding a Styrofoam tube

    Halloween Props
    Looking for some help. I am trying to find something like the cylinder in the picture. It's an 8" (200mm) outside diameter tube (must be hollow inside), ideally Styrofoam but thin cardboard would work too. It needs to be light-weight because it's being spun by a small motor at around 1300rpm...
  7. Static: Leftover concrete skulls

    Halloween Props
    I was putting in some fence posts a couple years ago and had a little concrete leftover. I made two very crude skulls that I didn't like, so I just pitched them behind the garage. Well I found them the other day and now they look pretty cool.
  8. Static: Flat concrete to "lumpy" ground

    Halloween Props
    Now accepting suggestions for making fake mounds of ground to place on a flat concrete floor. Can't drill into the concrete and don't want to haul in buckets of dirt. What I'm looking to do is make a mound big enough to set a couple of resin toads on along with some fake grasses and cat-tails...
  9. Haunted Floor Ideas?

    General Halloween
    Hello my peeps: So my question to all of those who have a garage haunt: Do you do anything to your concrete floor? My limitations are safety and gore less suggestions. I am trying to avoid tripping hazards and I also prefer a haunt that is spooky over grotesque. I have a 16' x 16' poured...
  10. Lightweight Concrete

    General Halloween
    While perusing the threads within one I came across a 'recipe' for lightweight concrete. I think they were using them for tombstones. The stones we have now are straight concrete..I'd like to give the lightweight recipe a try but I can't find it and the google search didn't give me much. I...

  12. Other: Monster Mud usage for costumes

    Halloween Props
    I know that this is the prop section but Monster Mud is most commonly used for props so I thought it was more appropriate. I need a costume that replicates the look and texture of concrete. How flexible is monster mud? Would it simply crack if a person were moving inside it?
