    Just thought I would share with you, and easy and cheap way I have found to make my dead skeleton pirates for this years Halloween display. The full poseable skeletons are really expensive here in UK and as I need quite a few pirates decided to experiment a bit. I don't claim to be a master...

    I've been watching the new Pirate series, Black Sails, on Starz. The costumes and sets provide a lot of inspiration for a pirate theme. The opening itself is great with skeletons and all. Any one else watching it yet?

    Hey Haunters, I'm trying to find a small lightweight motor that would create the POTC effect of a seagull's head quickly moving side-to-side, instead of a slow pan (like deer motors do). Any ideas?

    This was a simple build from last year. This was our front entry area coat closet. I just lined the walls with block wall scene setter and and as for the cell door, it's just scrap wood from the neighbor, black PVC "bars" with 2x2 cross braces and a small "lock" that I made from a block of wood...

    Its never too early to start planning and building right? So for this coming year I've planned a Pirate theme instead of just my pirate room I had last year. The project Im going to start is sculpting a couple heads for PVC bodies. My problem is, I need some clever ideas for how the faces...

    So I'm having a "Pirates and Wenches" party in a few weeks. Using lightorama I have a sequence in which cannons will fire across the room and I want to add damage effects to the false walls I'm making (out of cardboard). For anyone who has been to Disney World they have a neat effect at...

    We are thinking of a Pirate themed haunt for our backyard this year. Over the weekend I made a sign similar to the one used in POTC The Curse Of The Black Pearl. I used 2 x 6ft dogear fence pickets, 4ft of rope, black acrylic paint and Krylon spray wood stain/preservative. I drew the lettering...

    My normal theme is Pirates. This year I was thinking of doing a tribute to the Goonies. This is a survery of sorts of people's favorite scenes from the movie and what I should incorporate into my yard haunt. To start off, I'm of course going to do a One-Eyed Willie Table with the "rich stuff"...
