  5. Static: Pennywise (2017 version) head prop

    Halloween Props
    Last year, I got a last-minute idea to try and make a Pennywise head prop out of an extra styrofoam head I had at the house. Somehow in 7 years living at my house, I had never thought to incorporate the storm drain in front of my yard! Anyway, you don't need a drain, he looked pretty neat...
  6. How many plastic surgeries has Elvira done?

    Off-Topic Stuff
    Guys we all know and love Elvira. Not to mention its one of the most sought after costumes of all time. I'm just curios to know, how many plastic surgeries has this lady done if any? She looks absolutely radiant for her age (Cassandra Peterson) and I believe she has a grown up son too. Just...
  7. Lighting: candle help and ideas

    Halloween Props
    I recently had a conversation with a friend that works at a custom lighting company. Some of her lamps have plastic candles. She has been throwing away the extra ones.

    My Menacing Molly from Spirit Halloween needs a new 'neck' gear that swings her head forwards and back (before she leans backwards).

    This very unfortunate thing happened to my 60-inch skeleton companion, Vlad, last night.

  10. Other: "Skinning" Forms?

    Halloween Props
    Hi y'all! I saw a post on here about a haunted tree, and at some point in the photo gallery, he said he "skinned" it with 1 mil plastic. Does anyone know what that means? I've been looking online for a hint, but I've come up with nothing.

  12. Other: Recommending PVC Pipe Cutter for prop building

    Halloween Props
    Last year I had some large size PVC pipe to cut and wanted a clean cut without all the plastic debris from sawing. Not being someone with a lot of tools or being handy constructing things, I ended up buying an Orbit "1/2 inch-to-2 inch PVC cutting tool" from Home Depot. A bit on the pricey side...

    Halloween Props
    Hi, I've been the proud owner of a Don Post Full Moon mask for many years, and it has been stored in my closet for about 9 years now.

  16. Static: Climbing Skeletons

    Halloween Props
    I want to add some climbing skeletons to my house this year. I've seen tutorials on how to hang them on aluminum siding with Christmas light clips.
