    General Halloween
    Ha! No... not like THAT. I mean in the Haunter way! :D I was wondering how many folks here are lone haunters doing it all (or most) on their own... even if you are married or part of a family. Over the years, I've found just about as many pros as cons. Pros: Never having to sneak in...

  6. No dripping blood countdown?

    Site Issues and Feedback
    I like the old dripping blood graphic for days till. Breaking it down that much isn't even helpful because of timezones.

    For Sale/Trade By Individuals
    This prop is part of a haul that sat in an attic for a few years. It originally had crystalized acid in its battery compartment, but thanks to a helpful tip, I've been able to restore it. It works beautifully! I've seen this for sale between $250 and $300. I am happy to include first class...

Also, how is the brightness? Most I find seem to be 3 Watts. Are 3 Watt RGB LEDs bright enough? How does a 3 Watt LED compare...
