  1. Wanted to Buy
    Hello All! I am looking for the Deluxe Model of the Jack Skllingon Animatronic by Gemmy. I know there are countless of them on eBay but they are $300 or more. I am looking for it directly from Home Depot or for one of equal or less price. May also be willing to trade my old model for a new one.
  2. 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...

    Hi - I am new here. I guess it was 3 years ago I came across the life sized Jack Skellington in a Walgreens store here in North Carolina. Without hesitation I bought him, buckled him in the front seat on the truck and brought him home. When I saw him I knew where he would go: right up in the...
  6. Tutorials and Step-By-Step
    While looking at a picture of Jack Skellington one day, it occurred to me that in the right pose, his silhouette is nothing more complicated than a big X. I thought this would be a simple project (they're never as simple as I think), so even though it wasn't in my plans for this year's...
