  1. How to Dye Blue Fabric to Black

    I have a cheap zombie costume I bought from Spirit. I love the color of the pants, but the top is a terrible blue color. I'd like to dye this blue to match the charcoal black of the pants. How can I do this and what materials do I need? It's a very thin, flimsy material so I'd have to be...
  2. Static: Can you dye hair?

    Halloween Props
    This is my version of the Halloween Jack in the Box (if I attached the picture correctly). It's hard to tell in the picture, but the hair is all white at the ends where it bleached in the sun last year. Is there a way to dye mask hair? Or should I just cut it off every year until he needs a...
  3. Fog: Green fog

    Halloween Props
    Random thought/question: I wonder if there is any way to 'tint' the fog coming out of my machine (i.e. with dye or food coloring?) so it is actually green, instead of using green lights to achieve a similar effect...

    I know this isn't specifically a craft but it *is* artistic and I've been dying to share my new hair. I thought about putting it in the costume forum but it's not temporary per se (it'll last through the rest of October) and it's my everyday hair, not something I'm doing for a party or...

  10. Floating skull fountain

    For Sale/Trade By Individuals
    This was picked up at Spirit looooong ago. Probably about 10 years now. It was used once, note the "blood" stains in the pic, and then banished to the attic. I'll have to hook it up outside to verify the pump still works, but it should. I'd recommend using it outside, as I used it inside and boy...
