  1. Halloween Props
    Hey all, I wanted to share my prop I've been building for about 3 weeks now. I wanted to get to more props, but this one took way to long and I got a late start. My original concept was to take all these skulls I had and create a skull pile prop. Something you'd find at spirit or similar. I...

    Can somebody please share their best blood recipe ? There are many out there, and I really don't want to spend a day making blood unneccesarily :-) I have acouple of uses in mind. One is putting the blood on white sheets, so I'm hoping the color will stay bright by Halloween... Hmmm.... or...

  7. Blog
    After seeing a few mentions around about how hard it is to keep the Stiltbeast plastic wrapped corpses from flaking their paint or stain off, I thought I might make a quick note about how I've gotten it to stay one with great success. I've used both water-based stains and gel stains and have...
