hey guys, for those of you interested in the secret reaper, I am going to organize it this year, I will be going camping Friday, will be back 5 days later, and will set up the offical sign up then,
for those who don't know what it is , it is on the lines of the secret santa thing, we have a $20 price, and either make or buy a gift for your secret "vicitm". I will be drawing names, and will have every one keep it secret until every one has their gifts. the length of sign up time, and when the gifts have to be mailed by are still being decided.
The offical rules and sign up will be posted after the 24th. Any one with questions can PM me. Thanks guys! Hope this makes sense, I tend to ramble! LOL!

well, MM, it is similar to a secret santa,except with the "gift" being halloween based. I will draw names of all who have signed up, give every one their "victim", every one must keep it secret, sending the gift by the date designated, and receiving one in return, I will give all the rules for it and when the offical sign up is in about a week, glad that so many are interested, the more the "scarier"!

I do agree, this was done last year and I think people were more happpier with their gifts. I certainly loved mine.

Maybe there should be categories to sign up under, like gore or no gore. LOL Then match up people based on similar decorating style. I would think if you like cute Halloween it would be easier to make or buy cute Halloween and same goes for gory stuff...just a thought.

Your welcome MHooch!!
I will try to answer the guestions
first. Partsman, I won't be getting the officla sign up posted for about a week, just started this thread to let people know and to start thinking about it.
As far as likes and dislikes, when you PM me your address, you will also sent me your likes, dislikes, and maybe ayour theme, if it would be a help.
Ruggerz, I hope others from England or at least Europe sign up, we have several members! I will keep you guys together to save every one shipping costs, same with the canadians, if there are enough signed up from both places to warrent that!
Sounds like we have a good start!!

I'm really looking forward to the secret reaper.

I read your latest reply and just wanted to express my opinion. As far as matching people together with like individuals I'm not sure that this is the best way to go. I do agree that we should clarify our likes and dislikes, but I'm not sure that gore people should be matched with gore people etc. I think it could be more interesting for the giver and the recipiant to be of differant style. I know just because I may not have a gore theme haunt that I could still take interest in purchasing this type of item. Not only could I take interest, but also may be able to shed a differant light on the recipient not to mention I myself may gain a new appreciation for something differant. As far as matching people from the same country this seems to loose some appeal, I know for myself being from Canada I would appreciate the perspective of a fellow haunter from another country, not to mention possibly the diiferant pieces that may be availabe to them. My take on what I'm hearing from members from places in Europe are that props and decorations are limited, which leads me to think that these members would probably really appreciate recieving something from a country that has an abundance of decorations. Members from Europe may be inclined to make something themselves, or purchase online from a retailer for example in the States for someone in the States, which could be shipped directly from the supplier to the recipiant and save on shipping cost.

Just out of curiosity what is usually the budget?

the gifts are 20 dollars, a buck one way or the other is ok, but basically 20 dollars.
I guess I didn't explain well, which is a bad habit of my, (drives hubby crazy), I am not matching gore with gore, etc, , but I do want every ones likes and dislikes, to help out with ideas of what to get your "victim". The europe/canada thing is only because I have been asked about it by other members, if every one is willing to send the gifts any where, it is fine with me, it is just the cost is so high. So if no one minds the cost, it is fine with me. Let me know what you all think!
