  1. Other: How to paint a Squawkers McCaw / faux fur?

    Halloween Props
    After seeing some great projects with it here I finally bought a Squawkers McCaw and the board to go with it from J-Man. The problem is that my theme is a spooky graveyard, nothing piratey. My solution is to turn Squakwers into a zombie parrot in a cage, but I'm not sure how to tackle paining...
  2. Goth Goddess Headdress

    Halloween Costume Ideas
    I set out to make a huge flamboyant Goth Goddess headdress to go with a long black dress. I watched this video to learn how to make a wire frame. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mBdnr2elRKM&app=desktop My materials were 20 gauge wire (the next thickest wire up would probably be more...

    Halloween Costume Ideas
    I am taking on a big project and want to create a female hybrid version of the krampus. I have done all the research and have a stack of information, photos, tutorials but what i'm looking for doesn't exist in female form.

  4. Mechanical: One way to Skin a cat...

    Halloween Props
    I had this Furreal cat for my organ grinder that I wanted to turn into a monkey. Here he is in his white fur: SO I skinned the cat down to bare "bones." Excuse his violent "poo flinging" action... I fixed that later... I finished him up with some brown fur and gave him a little tin cup...

  7. Your weird creature stories

    Paranormal and the Unexplained
    Do you have any to share? These are not in the ghost category, but might be considered more natural. The only thing we saw years ago was an animal that looked hairless, on four legs, bigger than a fox, and it had a ball-shaped tuft of fur at its tail. I thought it might be a fox with mange, but...

    Mask Support Help Requested So this is what my husband picked for this year, which is cool but needs a bit of help. I can finagle most anything. Which is good because everything about this needs adjusting. The shoulder piece is HUGE and will need to be taken in. There is no fur around the...
  9. Does Anyone Remember This Particular Type of Cardboard Cutout?

    General Halloween
    Hey everyone. I have done so much searching for these and could never find them. They have such positive associations for me, I wish I could find replicas. Around 1975 or so, I think (so hard to remember now), my mother put up these cute cardboard cutouts (no, not thinking of the trad...
