    Halloween Props
    Which is the best Spider-Webbing to use? I have used Walmart's brand in the past but no longer shop their stores. I have a bag from Spirit Halloween that was a year old and it just fell apart when trying to stretch it. I assume it's age kind of damaged it I guess? I have used Spirit Halloween's...

    General Halloween

    Here is an article I did for a home haunters newsletter and I thought I would share it again.:):) Under Budget and Over Scary By Matthew Winn Building a haunted house or putting on a yard haunt can costly each year just in candy let alone all the décor. People almost have the same thing to say...
  5. Where does it start first?

    General Halloween
    I'm going over the posts of Halloween hitting some of the stores already and saw how some places have already received their decorations while others around me have nothing yet. So the question is which stores gets the good stuff first and how long does it take for it to spread to the others. I...
  6. The worse part of knowing your hobby!

    General Halloween
    So I have this little hobby of having a collection of Halloween decorations. I've been doing this for so long that I know when I'm getting a great deal or it is a major rip off. I've noticed certain sites that I tend to earn gift cards for has a higher price on their Halloween collections when...

  11. Static: Finding the Elusive Cheesecloth?

    Halloween Props
    Maybe I'm missing something totally obvious, but the zillion tutorials for cheesecloth ghosts etc NEVER seem to say where to get the darn stuff in any decent quantity without totally breaking the bank. I've tried three fabric stores with no luck. Hardware stores sell it in such small quantities...

  15. Stores Releasing Halloween Stuff Already!

    General Halloween
    Today I went to Hallmark and they had their Halloween collection out already! Nothing really scary though. Only OK thing was a motion activated grim reaper-type skeleton that was probably 2 feet tall. I then later went to Yankee Candle and they were having a "Halloween Preview Party" and said...
  16. Online resources for (tasteful) Halloween-y goodness?

    General Halloween
    There isn't much in my area in the way of Halloween supplies, and I could use some good online resources. Particularly, I am looking for decorations and accents that are more spooky/creepy than cutesy or tacky; e.g., gargoyles, candelabras, engraved goblets, eerie ambient lighting, non-cartoony...
