    Anyone have an amusing epitaph to add to a Stella Live tombstone I'm working on? It sits over a breathing grave and I feel it needs more than just the name but I can't think of anything!

    OK, I live in the Detroit suburbs but you get the idea. I've been into Halloween since I was a kid, it's the only holiday, right? Is there anyone else here from SE MI?
  4. Mechanical: Projectors Outside

    Halloween Props
    Hey all! So I want to add a little spectre fun to my cemetery this year (love to have some little ghostie flitting about the tomb stones.) but am not sure how to keep my projector protected from the elements and maybe secure from taking an unauthorized walk. (I live outside Portland, Oregon so...
  5. Did Anyone Catch Any Orbs On Halloween Photos?

    Paranormal and the Unexplained
    On some of our Trick Or Treat photos, there are many orbs, others hardly any. I wonder if it's because we live not too far from the town cemetery. They almost seem to be following the trick or treaters...
  6. My first ToT!

    General Halloween
    So I have never lived in an area that gets ToT's and where I'm currently living is no different. I just moved here 7 months ago and it's all flat, corporate boxes surrounded by a major airport and a bunch of apartments. Anyway, I decided to throw on some makeup and a pulled out something from my...

They just ask for food donations if you want to stop by. Fabulous, amazing work each year and a different theme as well. Stopped by their facebook...

  10. Other: Mixing Old Paint (with a drill)

    Halloween Props
    So like many of you I have many cans of mis-tint paint that I picked up for cheap. They've all been stored inside my house and should still be good. I live about 5 minutes away from Lowe's, so going over to get them shaken isn't that big a deal, but sometimes I just want to get right into...
  11. Hor Far is "Too Far"?

    General Halloween
    Over the decades, my wife has accused me of taking this Halloween thing too far.. I admit, accidentally unleashing over 2,000 bluebottles for our 'Beelzebub, Lord of the Flies' was a tad extreme...but with no food supply, they all died in a couple of days. We DID have to vacuum up a lot of...
  12. Apartment Decorating

    General Halloween

So, we all know that there's TONS of creativity when it comes to Halloween decorating. The only problem with that, however, is the space you can work with. Some...

It looks like Lowes Canada ?? has started already listing new things online. Also it seems Lowes U.S. has listed a couple of things as well I'll add some photos of the...

  16. Consider Going "Live"

    General Halloween
    As satisfying as making humanoid props out of pvc and duct tape and wiper motors may be, let's face it, they're often more of a curiosity than a fright. One hockey-masked person jumping out the shadows has more shock value than a dozen CVS skeletons. I'm not here to suggest that you create...

  20. Electronic/Software: Peppers Ghost 2016- Haunted Organist

    Halloween Props
    I have always wanted to build a full size Peppers Ghost rig. Finally got the space and time to build one, found a cool 1880's pump organ for a background prop. Made the video. It is a lot of fun to try different videos/ effects. Even though is set up for video, it would work great with a live...
