    In search of help for the Set of Two Pirate Skeletons from Home Depot. They are pretty cool. One is sitting on a barrel. Here is the Link. They are manufactured by Home Accents. Their eyes light up and jaw moves to pre-recorded pirate talk. After reading the instructions, it seems like they are...

    Yesterday I tweaked my pirate attire for a spookier look this year, adding my Zagone Studios skull mask and gloves. This way, I officially have a mask and gloves on, while still having the full amount of Halloween fun!

    I thought I'd do a short thread pertaining to my minor mods for the Home Depot Gravedigger. I really like the height of this prop, as he tops out at over 6', with rather burly shoulders that lend an extra menacing stance. Since my theme is pirate / 18th century gothic, this prop's...

  6. Halloween Props
    This all started last Halloween, 2018. I was dressed in my grim reaper costume, standing very stoic and still as the unsuspecting ToTr's wandered up to my wife for their loot. I would then become animate and move very slowly, yet deliberately toward them. A good scare was had by all, and they...

    So I usually go all out and do a massive yard display every year. I havent been able to for the last couple years but will finally have the space next year. I want to re-do the pirate ship I did a few years ago, but I want to make it look like its on the bottom of the ocean and do a full...

    To get you up to speed, we are doing for the third time, a large haunted house for our town. We have an old cool looking "Depot". Used to be a place where trains dropped off products back in the day. We will have 7 evenly spaced "haunt rooms" Each room is 20 X 17 feet and will flow into each...
  14. Halloween Props
    I've been wanting to add a big treasure chest to my Pirate's Graveyard display for a long time now but could never find one that was big enough or at a price I was willing to pay so I finally broke down and built one myself. The chest measures 30x24x18 and cost less than $20 in materials...

    My husband and I had a Halloween game night last night! We had invited five people, but two (roommates) were unable to make it due to being ill. Lots of leftovers (ham sandwiches, mashed potatoes, meatballs, chips, pop - the chip dip and veggies all went, though!). As for the games, we played...
