  1. Spirit Halloween 2019

    General Halloween
    Since a thread has not been made for this yet I thought I would make one. Spirit released their first 2019 sneak peek today, and it is the "Terror Dog", also known as Zuul from Ghostbusters. It is a high price point at $499.99, but he is a licensed prop made of foam-filled latex and almost 5...

  5. Press break, anyone?

    Off-Topic Stuff
    I'm in need of two pieces of aluminum, 18" x 4". Each needs two bends near one of its long dimension, at 7/16" and 13/16". So, basically a "J". The pieces will be used to rebuild the failing, wooden sides of a silverware drawer in the kitchen whose wood has been whittled away over the years...
  6. Hobby Lobby 2019

    General Halloween
    It's happening, and it won't be long before we are in full-on Halloween! Hobby Lobby is putting out fall. Last year I didn't catch the fall floral bloom until mid-May and it took them until June to put out the rest. They're not wasting any time this year - not only do they have the fall floral...

    Hi All, I have an idea for a floating candelabra that I think will look great in our haunt if I can pull it off. Which is why my first step is coming here and asking you all what you think the best approach might be. I am thinking of taking my little plastic candelabra and turning it into a...
  8. Haunt in a large party tent?

    General Halloween
    Hi everyone, here's what I have in mind. My garage is too small for a "garage haunt", and besides, it also serves as my workshop (never parked a car in there ever since we moved into the place). I do have a huge driveway, though (over 5 meter wide, 20 meter long), big enough for an 8x4 meter...

    Hey everyone, meet Chuck! He's just a WIP right now, but I'll be documenting whatever progress pictures I take as I piece this beast together. The story here is a long one...so I'll wrap it in spoiler tags so it doesn't muck up this thread. ...and that's how Chuck came to be. He's being...
  11. JoAnn Fabric Garland

    Wanted to Buy
    Wondering if anyone that picked up the vine black glitter garland on clearance at JoAnn's last Spring might want to part with a few? It was black with glitter about 6 feet long. I bought a few for a project and need a few more. Didn't see it on their site this year. Thanks.

    Off-Topic Stuff
    Just today I was overjoyed to find that the Photobucket image hosting site has returned my pictures to all of my tutorials and posts on this forum. Two or three years ago, they DECIDED that allowing users to post their own pics to a third party web site (like this forum) for free was causing...
