  1. Halloween Props
    Taking into account the obvious issues, ultimately your choice, etc.., I have the good fortune of purchasing a new home with a huge front yard (nearly five times the size of my current yard) and have been toying with the idea of either a massive expansion of my current theme or going a totally...

    Watching my favorite movies with my pirate Halloween display. I love the pirate theme very much. You might be able to tell. LOL. Recorded this with my phone light on. It's much better than the video captured.
  4. Halloween Props
    Pre run of my pirate display in my garage. Still need to dirty up some costumes and do a bunch of touch ups on lighting. The fog machine was off when I took this. It goes off every so often which adds a nice touch. I had to have my phone light on for recording. I think it's wayyyy better in...

    Pirates aren't my thing, so I didn't save the link.... A guy at work mentioned he was thinking of building a pirate playset for his kids. I recall someone on here making a pirate boat for their party that people were actually able to get on. Anyone recall? Have I lost my mind?
