  1. Member Introduction
    I saw your posts about yards and that was all that I needed to join in with you. Oh, yes you want an introduction first. (I'm playing with these these posting features :confused:, so please bear with me. ) I live in Chester County, PA. My yard at this time of year is called "Uwchlan Haunt...
  2. Halloween Props
    Super quick/cheap rotten pumpkins. I didnt take any photos of the process, but it was pretty easy. Some of the techniques I used were from people that paper mache after they stuff and tape them but I didnt have time for all that.... I used plastic bags of different sizes (grocery and large...
  3. Halloween Props
    A walk through of my yard on Halloween 2017. I'd consider this small but it made the front page of the newspaper.
  4. Halloween Props

  8. Halloween Props
    I'm looking to place some zombie bodies around this year and wanted to know the cheapest way to make some decent heads for the bodies. It seems that masks stuffed with newspaper or something might be the most economical, but most zombie masks are $30. Any thoughts?
  9. Halloween Props
    I have a few static props from zombies to a new clown I made last night. My issue is they always look like they are from 2D land, they look good from the front but if you look at them from the side they always look flat. What do you all use to add bulk to your props? I use pool noodles on the...
