    Halloween Props
    Would you pay $100 for a full bodied female mannequin? An extremely old and established high end ladies clothing boutique is closing due to retirement. 4 generations have owned and managed it and they are finally done. I was in today looking around and asked about the mannequins, which they...

  9. Fog: Chauvet 1400

    Halloween Props
    I'm looking for a new fog machine. Right now there are several vendors that have factory refurbished Chauvet 1400s with a timer for $120. The 1400 is recently discontinued. It's a great price for a pretty high capacity machine. Does anyone have one, and if so how do you like it? Thanks!

  12. Prop of the Year (2018)

    General Halloween
    I was curious what everyone thought was the prop of the year this time around? I think everything of significance that has been announced has been released. My vote is for the Home Depot Headless Horseman and it did already sell out so it was in high demand. But what's your favorite prop of...

    Halloween Props
    2 years ago we had a hanging guy in one of the silo entrances operated by air, Small compressor couldn't keep up. I decided to try a wiper motor drive . It seems to work really well. In fact if I set the speed control too high he will thrash around enough to almost shake apart. Body still needs...
  14. Lost in Space Reboot

    Off-Topic Stuff
    I'm not a big TV guy, but something I stumbled upon on Netflix really hooked me. As a teen, I, like millions of others, was addicted to a campy Sci-Fi series that ran on Saturday afternoons. Now, by today's standards, that old series is something of a farce; guys in rubber suits, a Robot from...

    Halloween Props
    Hello. Bought eight oversized (but realistic looking) Styrofoam full skulls from Christmas Tree Shops. $6 or $7 each so couldn't pass up.
