    General Halloween
    Can't remember who it was that posted a while back about just starting out and wanting to go big, but being on a budget. I had replied that a small budget just means add a little each year, make as much as you can from whatever you can get cheap or free, hit the clearance sales, and grow it...

  8. Static: Made a hayride cart, pretty easy prop

    Halloween Props
    We made a hayride cart to go behind our corpse skeleton horse (home D). We used a small table that the legs go down short. Cut a thin piece of wood about the same size as the table, (thin, like the kind from wood crates, not plywood) then made a lip on the 2 long sides to fit over the table...
  9. Static: Tombstone showing foam through paint

    Halloween Props
    Hi All, I made a tombstone for a friend of mine. I used 2 coats of Drylok and 2 coats of paint as a base before aging it. After one Halloween season, the pink foam started to show through the paint. Has this happened to anyone before? I can't find any other instances of this happening...

  14. Posting images ideas (PHOTOBUCKET policy changes)

    Off-Topic Stuff
    Just a word of warning: Photobucket has just changed their terms of usage in the past few weeks with hardly any notice. The big takeaway of this is they no longer support 3rd party hosting, which is pretty much what every single person using Photobucket used them for - copying the Photobucket...

    Halloween Props
    For those that do the fearfx video projections, when do you start showing your display? I'm trying to figure out is I should do it later as it gets closer to Halloween maybe a week before, or do you display it from early on, or only on Halloween day?

  20. Rear Window, Iron Giant and Doctor Who all back for very limited releases.

    Off-Topic Stuff
    Always good to see classics on the big screen. I saw Hitchcock's Rear Window in the theatre years ago, and it makes such difference - I felt like I was actually looking across the street during some of the establishing shots. It's really brilliant. No idea why by Cineplex is showing this for...
