  2. Mechanical: Human Rotisserie

    Halloween Props
    So, I have my hot coals, and I have my skeleton, and I want to build a human sized rotisserie. I have seen a couple of them on here before, but I can't find them. Are there any good DIYs for a skeleton-sized rotisserie? The basic model in my head is scrap wood and PVC pipe (seems like it...

  4. Dealing With Disappointment

    General Halloween
    It seems like every year there is some kind of snag that doesn't let me decorate the way I want. Last year we had lost my mother-in-law, my father-in-law had a serious stroke and I was dealing with some mild health issues. This year we've lost my father-in-law, I went back to college and I...

    Halloween Props
    I tried my best to search through the site locally and via google, but still have questions on an enclosure for an outdoor projector. While masking it isn't the issue, I am needing something weather proof for a Minnesota fall. I'd like to do singing pumpkins for just about a week. Per an...

    Halloween Props
    So we went to the Spirit store yesterday and decided to pick up two sets of clown head lawn stakes because they were better than the current lawn stakes we have and the other set they had in the store. The problem is that we've never done a theme before, and I'm worried the clown stakes will...
