    Just starting to plan our Vampire Funeral theme this year, and I'm wondering... Is it possible to rent a hearse for an evening? I'd love to have this in the driveway when guests arrive, in front of my garage-door-turned-wall-crypt. Have any of you done this? Where do you rent from...a...

    My apologies if this design has been posted many times, I sure someone else has thought of it before. And I agree with the experts here, use a real cylinder if building an elaborate and expensive prop. My props are for a hayride, I can manually operate and reset the props. This is a single...

  14. Halloween Costume Ideas
    I am a fat guy, and it's hard to come up with good Halloween costumes for someone my shape. This year my brother suggested a Star Trek movie uniform, as some of the cast members had put on some weight. I knew the Monster Maroon Uniform was beyond my skill level, but then Scotty's Costume from...

    I am horrible with painting. Well, not ALL painting. Give me 4 walls, a roller and a brush and I can make that room look amazing. When it comes to any other form of painting, I just can't seem to get it down. I have painted this head 3 times already! I am calling it done. Because if I try...
