    I just ordered the cutest, realistic looking resin fruit bats from CollectionsEtc. They aren't on sale (reg. 14.99) but I was able to use a RetailMeNot coupon for CollectionsEtc to order them at 20% off (on entire order) bringing the price down to 11.99 each. They charged shipping based off of...

    It's been a longtime goal of mine to make the singing busts for my Halloween display. I wanted to share how I did it, and make some recommendations for those who are interested in doing the same. First, I started the project with a budget in mind. I wanted to keep it under $500. Second, I...
  3. Halloween Props
    Hi everybody! A while ago, my wife asked me if I could make a replica of the spellbook from the movie "Hocus Pocus". It shouldn't be just a prop, it also should be an actual sketchbook. I made a video of the entire build process, and managed to edit it into a 20-minute video: I used a kraft...

    Forgive me if this has been asked before. I'm planning on making an alien from the film "Devil's Gate", The skeleton will be PVC but I need to bulk up some areas with paper mache, or something. This prop needs to be waterproof to stand up to fall weather in MI. Once I get the body the way I...

    New thread for the cemetery. One of the pumpkins I bought was split at the seam so we took it back and exchanged it. Apparently Michaels has Halloween stuff out. We scored a couple resin cast tombstones for the cemetery. First 2 pics are the head stones we got today. Last is the cemetery last...

    Ok, I know there is a few ways I can make a large cauldron, but just trying to see if anyone knows a good source of one you can buy. Save me some time for all the other projects. Will be looking for 2 (one for a cauldron creeper, and 1 to sit in front of my Sanderson sister manaquins). At...

    I was on Design Toscano's site today looking at their dragon and gargoyle statutes (on sale and additional discount today too btw) and saw that they had a Care Instruction which I thought might be helpful to share. Pretty much what you'd expect. I've bought a number of these statutes from Design...

    Hi all! I'm currently working on a Scream/Casey Becker mannequin. She's the first character in the movie "Scream" who gets hung in a tree.

    I've been using a lot of paper mache this year, but am hopeful I can find something less messy and time consuming (but still cheap enough!). I've seen a few things suggesting fiberglass resin and have a question before I consider trying it. If you put it directly on cardboard, will it become...
