    Off-Topic Stuff
    I just saw a story on Yahoo https://www.yahoo.com/news/cemetery-bones-tossed-trash-families-034139172.html about a cemetery that was left in disarray.

  6. Static: How are you lighting your pumpkin scarecrows/sentinels securely and effectively?

    Halloween Props
    For those with tall outdoor pumpkin scarecrows, sentinels, etc ... is there a consensus best ways to illuminate them?

  7. Tombstone support * Question

    General Halloween
    What do you do to secure your prop tombstones to the ground? The mini plastic stakes they come with are useless, last year I used paint stir sticks and duct tape which worked fine. But this year it's extra windy and it's not working too well. Thanks!

    Looking to replace a prop I had years ago and miss. It was a 3 piece ground breaker sold at Spirit and looked pretty realistic and has some strands of hair on his head.

    Thinking of getting this ground fogger. Yes I know I can build a chiller for loads less (have a couple). But I have a particular application that requires something like this.
