  1. Lighting: How to create flickering lights?

    Halloween Props
    I am hosting a "funeral home" themed party this year and I typically decorate each room in the house as though it is part of a haunted house walk-through. I am hoping to convert the whole kitchen into a morgue/embalming room. It really would be cool to make the entire room flicker with a...
  2. Retro-a-go-go Mummy GID mask

    Halloween Props
    A little while back I clicked on a thread someone had posted looking for a large (like 3-5 foot) skull mask. While doing a search to help out (think someone else posted about Retro-a-Go-Go in the thread) I ended up at Retro-a-Go-Go's website. Had been on it sometime back for a tiki retro item I...

  7. Static: Deteriorating latex

    Halloween Props
    I wondered why everyone here loves making hands from scratch for your lifesize props. I kept thinking why make them when it is so time consuming... I just want to buy them! They were pricey... but they looked good. Yet after 22 days outside I see that it was a really big mistake. :( Is...

  9. Prizes Fail??

    Party Ideas. Experiences and Recipes
    I need some opinions please.............We just had an unexpected $1300.00 plumbing disaster. I had 500.00 saved back for the party and well now it's all gone. So I really have to cut back on my prizes for the costume contest. We usually give out $25 gift cards or $20 scratch off tickets...
