  1. Foamular/Extruded Polystyrene - Where to buy in SoCal?!

    Wanted to Buy
    So, I LOVE all of the amazing tutorials available here and on YouTube, Pinterest, etc....BUT NONE OF THE PINK FOAM IS AVAILABLE WHERE I LIVE! What is it about living in Southern California (specifically the Orange County/Los Angeles areas) that makes it so difficult to find this stuff? To be...
  2. Static: My First Cauldron!

    Halloween Props
    So I haven't been able to really start all my decorating that I want to get done. For the past couple years I haven't really been able to decorate. I did some simple things last year but I literally had to take everything done the night of Halloween. My house is over 100 years old and...
  3. Static: vinyl paint

    Halloween Props
    last year I spray painted a beach ball with paint and it worked out fine, this year I went thru all my spray paint and a few I bought and nothing dries, any body got any ideas on what I can use. Last years paint either came from lowes or home depot.

  6. Other: Anyone else having trouble getting rigid foam?

    Halloween Props
    Went to my local Home Depot today to get some 3/4" foam and found out that they no longer carry it. They now only carry 2" in both the pink and the foil-backed. Went to the service desk to see if other stores in my area had it and no such luck - nothing within a 100 mile radius. I tried...

    General Halloween
    Has anybody noticed Dave Lowe's Halloween inspiration this year? A "Farmers Market!"...........................just pure brilliance. I know it's late in the game but I am so copying this concept. Anybody else going to try? Here is a link to the Hallmark channel show which displays his (and...

    Halloween Props
    I have aquired a Black Widow Greeter from Lowes. There is a connecter on the back for Try Me - and a connector marked CDS. Does anyone know what this is for. The try me is simply for a remote switch - I am familiar with this?
  9. Lowes: Free styrofoam blocks - August 2017 - Burlington NC

    Announcements / Press Releases
    I skimmed through the threads real fast but didn't see one to post this. Sorry if I'm posting this in the wrong place, it wasn't very thorough skimming. So, at the Lowes home improvement store in Burlington NC they have 2'x1'x1' styrofoam blocks. I asked a manager if I could have, repeat have...
  10. Lowes 2017/Lowes Canada

    General Halloween
    Hi everyone first post for me. I thought I start a Lowes thread since it doesn't look like one has been started yet for 2017. 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...

  12. Static: My budget fence

    Halloween Props
    After spending well over $100.00 on the crappy plastic fence I've been buying from Spirit that will, and did break instantly. I decided to make my own fence for this year. I went with the PVC and wood method that's pretty popular and spent well under 100 for 10x more fence. I have the first pipe...
  13. Biggest bang for your buck

    General Halloween
    Sometimes it's not the big stuff that gets the most thrills and chills! Which parts of your haunt give you the biggest return for the cost? Mine would include: music - free :D downloaded some songs from http://spookysoundtrack.com/ to play through hidden spekaers and boy it really set the...
  14. Other: Lowes Faux Flaming Pumpkin Not Lighting *Help*

    Halloween Props
    I bought two new flaming pumpkins from lowes this year. Came home and one no longer lights...you can hear the fan or motor running. Anyone else encounter this problem? There are none left at the stores. For some odd reason I have the receipt and it does have a 90 day warranty. But I would...
  15. Lowe's New Outdoor 6 outlet Timer-Perfect!

    General Halloween
    I found this at Lowe's today for $24.99 in the Christmas section. If any of you have read my threads on how I currently have 2 six plug timers from Improvementscatalog.com, and how awesome they are, well hold on your hats! This is so much better. The one at improvements requires a lot of...
  16. Lighting: Lowe's LED spotlight $12.95

    Halloween Props
    At Lowe's home improvement store today and bought these. Ive been thinking about making my own but figured I'd buy these instead. They look a lot better in person than they do while taking a picture at night. I just thought id post in case anyone else was looking for lower cost spotlights.
  17. Static: Gemmy Mickey Mouse Vampire Greeter at Lowes $19.99!

    Halloween Props
    I saw this Gemmy Mickey Mouse greeter at Lowes yesterday. Not big on Mickey Mouse, but we are wanting to do a "bunny trail" for scared adults this year so this fit in nicely. But for as well made as it is, it was just $19.99! Can't beat that.
  18. Other: Countess Reborn (WIP)

    Halloween Props
    I totally feel in love with the Countess prop at Lowes, and agoniozed for a month over whether to get her. I know I wouldn't be satisfied with her clothes and accessories. Yesterday I broke down and got her. I put a different wig and dress on her, and better jewellery. Not finished with her...
  19. Help me find which store carried this last year! Giant Skull

    Wanted to Buy
    My dad is looking for this large skull. It's an outside prop and it's pretty large. 2 or 2 and a half feet tall, possibly. I'm not sure if Sam's, Home Depot, Lowe's or some other store carried it, but I do know the eyes are supposed to light up. Thanks!
  20. This will be .. The year of the dragon!

    General Halloween
    Okay I'm far too excited I got these stupid things this year. Last year I was going nuts looking for the original gemmy 9" fire and ice dragon to no avail .. They were out so stock everyplace. So I vowed next year. Well I bought the original sitting one this morning through Home Depot. Was all...
