  1. What is in the Details

    General Halloween
    Some say God is in the details. Others say it's the Devil. Obviously it's neither; in fact it's a skull... What you are seeing is a pumpkin leaf that has been partially eaten by snails then sun bleached white as it has decayed. The images have not been manipulated, color corrected or modified...

  4. Mechanical: UK Monster-in-a-box

    Halloween Props
    Hi all, Halloween isn't as popular in the UK as it is in the US, but I'm hopefully going to change that over the next few years as I build my drive / front garden (yard?) display, well at least in my leafy part of West Sussex anyway. I have a lot of prop building experience (R2D2, 2 x Daleks...

    General Halloween
    Last year I pulled together a quick zombie walk/scare and a few displays in about a week. This year a lot more time and prop making happened so we put on a much bigger display. We had a little kid area with bright colourful fun witches and photo opportunities which then was under a black...

  9. Any Halloween Gardens Out There?

    General Halloween
    Does anyone else have a Halloween garden? We have been very fortunate to have a big chunk of land behind our home, and rather than let it just be a weedy looking lawn full of mole hills, we decided to make a garden. It’s mostly raised beds, and mostly vegetables and flowers just like everyone...

    Off-Topic Stuff
    Please support our fundraiser. The estate has been on the market for 3 years and is priced below market value. Because the home is so unusual and has such a large yard, it still has not sold. Please watch this awesome video done by the Real Estate agent. If you can see our vision for a...
  11. "Hallowe'en Clearance Sale" Is My Favorite Holiday!

    General Halloween
    I may have to take Monday off just to start hitting Hallowe'en displays and picking up goodies for next year. Some things never go on sale, but I may get lucky. I buy all kinds of stuff (anybody need a couple of 1000-yard rolls of Crime Scene tape? :D ), and I totally admit that I usually...

  13. Static: Uses for a garden hose?

    Halloween Props
    I've got two garden hoses that I simply can't stand anymore (too many kinks), so it's time to retire them and put them to good use on Halloween. Any suggestions on what to make with them? Our current plan is to create a secret, toxic, mad scientist lab in our garage. So if you're suggestion...

    I don't know about the rest of you, but the Roger's Garden annual Halloween boutique is one of my most anticipated events of the haunting season. And being such an avid fan I went poking around their web page today and found a little blurb on the upcoming 2017 theme. From the description is...

    Hi All. Can I just say that I am loving this forum? Everyone here is so talented and inspiring me to get my butt in gear this year. I would love some feedback on my latest project.
