  1. Upcycling a cheap mask

    Tutorials and Step-By-Step
    I have a cheap, flimsy Frankenstein mask I bought at Walmart several years ago. The paint job on it is terrible, but I always thought the sculpt was kind of cool. I decided to make it into a piece of wall art. This is what the piece looked like coming out of storage. The mask was wrinkled...

  12. SNOW on Halloween?

    General Halloween
    Do parts of the country have SNOW during Halloween? I grew up in Chicago and spent 40 years in CommieFornia, before moving to Kentucky, so I never gave much thought to kids TOT'ing in the snow. How does the snow affect the lights, and the props? What about the costumes? .
