  1. Custom Halloween T-Shirt

    General Halloween
    I'm thinking about creating a custom t-shirt to wear year round. I'm thinking it would show skeleton ribs and a Jack-O-Lantern instead of a heart. What do you guys think and do you have any ideas to add to it.

  9. Static: How can I build this?

    Has anyone made anything like this? I am wanting to do something similar next year on the front of my tent. I want it to be either a creepy clown or skull that the TOTs have to walk threw to get in. I have been looking around the forum but not use what key words to search. Any ideas on how...
