  1. Halloween Props
    Okay, I have a really big box. It is cardboard, but I could dress it up a little. It is heavy and thick and sits on a pallet. Dimensions are probably 3.5x3.5 and 5.5ft tall. What is the easiest way to make it shake with a 'do not open, dangerous animal inside' type of vibe? (In my head it...
  2. Halloween Costume Ideas
    A friend of mine is having a Halloween party this weekend and wants to push the envelope. He wants to be a poophead (he used different language) and asked if I could come up with something to top his costume off. He wanted it to be gross. After some trial and error this is what I came up...

    It's been raining nonstop here for weeks, now, and I'm so far behind it's just sad at this point. However, I thought if nothing else, I could get my giant fire dragon set up on the porch and hopefully that would build some momentum. ...except I can't get his dadgummed frakkin' lakkin' head to...

    For those with tall outdoor pumpkin scarecrows, sentinels, etc ... is there a consensus best ways to illuminate them? This is all still pretty new to me, (though I have picked up the aesthetic part quick) but right now I'm just not sure how you're lighting up your pumpkins when they're 6,7, 8...
  5. Halloween Props
    So, I have my hot coals, and I have my skeleton, and I want to build a human sized rotisserie. I have seen a couple of them on here before, but I can't find them. Are there any good DIYs for a skeleton-sized rotisserie? The basic model in my head is scrap wood and PVC pipe (seems like it...
  6. Halloween Props
    I decided to do The Nightmare Before Christmas as my theme this year, for the 25th anniversary of the movie. There is so much material there to work with. In hindsight, I should have started building in June. I did not get as many characters as I wanted, but it still turned out pretty good. I...

    Yesterday I bought a gemmy monster off CL. The last owner most of tried to fix the head because its all moved around inside. I got it home and nothing in the head works now. I have no idea on what to do or how to fix it. Can anyone help?

    Hi All, I have the retired Spirit Halloween Grave Digger prop and it needs some repair. 2 issues: 1) The plastic piece that holds his head in place must have broke, and I can't find anything that will repair it (his head moves side to side and tilts, so can't glue) 2) His arm is supposed to...

    I am horrible with painting. Well, not ALL painting. Give me 4 walls, a roller and a brush and I can make that room look amazing. When it comes to any other form of painting, I just can't seem to get it down. I have painted this head 3 times already! I am calling it done. Because if I try...

    I didn't see a thread on this one anywhere here. Correct me if I'm wrong. She's an HD exclusive this year as far as I can tell. About 3ft tall. See pictures and video below. PROS: Nice detail on face hands, and feet. Teddy bear looks real. Runs on AA batteries so it can be placed just about...

    There are several online tutorials for creating the head in a jar illusion. I have never been able to recreate this. Even using the exact same programs some of the features aren’t available to me for some reason. Is there anyone that knows how to do this, and would be willing to help out...
