  1. WTB-Skull Garland Set

    Wanted to Buy
    These sets are becoming very difficult to find. They look like this. https://offerup.com/item/detail/547772440/ I've already had one set reach of end of life and they are not repairable. And this comes from someone who has at least 50 Christmas light sets from the late 60's, early 70's and...
  2. Static: Jack-o-Lantern Archway 2018

    Halloween Props
    Hey all, I am new here and I wanted to share with you something that I've built. I am really proud of it. It was a lot of work, but it gets a lot of attention from the neighbors. The archway is built with PVC pipe, tons of personally carved jackos (several store bought as well) and lights...
  3. Three Rotten Coffins

    For Sale/Trade By Individuals
    From Spirit Halloween. Static prop. In their boxes, never opened, but the boxes have significant wear as they had clearly been kicking around Spirit for years. Bought 2 or 3 years ago at a single location. $40 each + shipping (which could be reasonably significant), or best offer. Take one...
  4. It's March outside, so it's time to make a Heart of Immortal for Halloween.

    Party Ideas. Experiences and Recipes
    Whatever - we got through the snow in 2011. Just hope there isn't a lot of wind. It's still early, hopefully it'll go farther off the coast or slow down so it doesn't reach us until Sunday.

  8. Help! Fat Guy Storyteller

    Halloween Costume Ideas
    So, I'm pretty huge into Halloween, but honestly, I've ever been that big into costuming. As a 6' 4" 320 lb guy, I don't quite fit the mold of many of the characters I find scary/fascinating. However, the school I'm working at is doing a Halloween storytelling event, and I'm going to be doing a...

  12. Mechanical: Does anyone have Lil' Skelly Bones?

    I wan't to know if he has a timer,motion sensor, or sound sensor. I want to put him far out in my yard where his body heat sensor thing or a step pad couldn't reach. Is they're ANY way for him to be activated besides those two methods?
