  3. A new look for our yard

    General Halloween
    The mermaid skeleton came! She is gorgeous!!! Rather than a typical bone color, she is kind of grayish, with a bendy tail. She'll certainly look better than our old mermaid, which was a regular Bucky type, with a homemade tail. Due to a house move, we couldn't Halloween last year, and when I...
  4. Heart Shaped Box by Joe Hill

    Literature and Role-Playing
    I recently read Joe Hill's book Heart Shaped Box. I love a good ghost story. I was intrigued with the concept of buying a haunted item off an internet auction sight. Judas Coyne is a rock star who grew up with an abusive father and an enabling mother. Judas grew up in rural Louisiana on a...

    Halloween Props
    I was looking for something to cast a large dinosaur image on our 2-story house's side wall when we set up for our dino haunt and can't wait to try out. It's 15W and hoping it will be bright enough to do what I want and still be creepy lighting. Just ordered it from Amazon. It's a set of...

  7. Aluminum soldering flux. No US vendors?

    Off-Topic Stuff
    I'm soldering longer leads to a gum stick, 40mm x 12mm x 4mm, lithium polymer, 3.7v battery, and I recently discovered that the leads coming out of the battery are aluminum, so in order to solder them, I need to be using a flux designed for aluminum. Okay, no problem so far. Online, I'm...

  9. Kinda sad

    Off-Topic Stuff
    I just saw a story on Yahoo https://www.yahoo.com/news/cemetery-bones-tossed-trash-families-034139172.html about a cemetery that was left in disarray. It's so sad but I know it's happening more and more. Frog and I hunt out cemeteries on our travels and those in the card exchanges get a chance...
  10. Static: My version of Brown Jenkin

    Halloween Props
    The Dreams In The Witch House is one of my favorite Lovecraft stories. Last year I made a tombstone that has the name Jenkin on it as a nod to the story and got the idea just before Halloween to make a Brown Jenkin to go with it. For those unfamiliar with the story Brown Jenkin was the familiar...

  13. Electronic/Software: Anyone have the Skeleton Bedtime Story by Total Home FX?

    Halloween Props
    Does anyone have the Total Home FX Skeleton Bedtime Story? I can't find any preview of it longer than a few seconds. It looks like decent digital decoration, and I'm thinking of add it to my haunted portrait. However, my TV is in a vertical configuration, so it looks like it's a portrait, and...

  15. Help! Fat Guy Storyteller

    Halloween Costume Ideas
    So, I'm pretty huge into Halloween, but honestly, I've ever been that big into costuming. As a 6' 4" 320 lb guy, I don't quite fit the mold of many of the characters I find scary/fascinating. However, the school I'm working at is doing a Halloween storytelling event, and I'm going to be doing a...

  18. Can I share a feel good story?

    General Halloween
    This past weekend I had a garage sale. I'm sitting in my chair (lording over my junk) when towards the end of it, a family with three boys came in. They looked about age 6-8. The dad introduced himself and told me his parents lived on our street. Then he surprised me by asking if I was...
  19. Why I'm A Haunter

    General Halloween
    Hey guys as build season gets into full swing I tend to get all caught up in my projects. I find it can be pretty easy to get stressed juggling your actual life and haunter life at times so I find it helpful to reflect on why we do what we do. I made a video and I talk about early halloween...

    I haven't been able to be on here for quite some time. I've been busy with work and what little free time I've had has been spent either fixing up my home or working on art or writing my stories. I have been working on this story for 2 years. Refining, editing, expanding. I have put a lot of...
