  1. HELP: Life size skulls and Skeletons any condition

  2. Pirate carousing and general tomfoolery in 2019

    Halloween Props
    This all started last Halloween, 2018. I was dressed in my grim reaper costume, standing very stoic and still as the unsuspecting ToTr's wandered up to my wife for their loot. I would then become animate and move very slowly, yet deliberately toward them. A good scare was had by all, and they...

    Halloween Props
    Just looked at the ones at Home Depot. They are only 5' tall, pretty small and the screws and bolts holding together are very obvious. Are there any better quality versions out there?
  4. Static: evil dead army

    Halloween Props
    After watching The Army of Darkness I decided that my spider rider needed some companions. I had bough several 3 ft skeletons at Home Depots sale and decided to use those. The warriors were made for an outdoor display so all materials used would have to stand up to rain and wind. I used a...
  5. Mermaid!

    Halloween Props
    I am dancing with delight! Our mermaid skeleton came today--well, yesterday--it's late, and I am absolutely happy. I was worried that she would be a cheap piece of junk, but no. She is beautiful, articulated, and a sort of weird grayish color that rather suits a sea creature. We got her from...
  6. Static: Climbing Skeletons

    Halloween Props
    I want to add some climbing skeletons to my house this year. I've seen tutorials on how to hang them on aluminum siding with Christmas light clips.
