And, here is the thread for the likes list, PLEASE, And I so can not stress this enough!!!! PLEASE make the list as detailed as possible, Being vague is very frustrating for your reaper, for example, I like witches should be more like, I like witch hats, potion bottles, cauldrons,, etc. so your reaper knows exactly what you want/need.

Thanks all,, lets have a fun winter reaper!

Just got signed up!

Here's my list:

I do a walkthrough haunt every year with a foyer, cemetery, cornfield, dungeon, swamp, Egyptian tomb and witch's shack. I'm always looking for items to fit these scenes. Thank you, Winter Reaper!

With the "haunted estate" theme, I've been thinking of the Egyptian and jungle portions more as part of the estate owner's crazy collections, so I'd love more antiquities, treasures, statues, etc. to build this part up.

Here is a link to pics of last year's haunt: http://www.halloweenforum.com/general-halloween/140536-my-haunted-estate-2014-a.html

Likes:
Unique tombstones
Egyptian treasures
Pirate treasures
Swamp items (fake greenery, jute netting, voodoo items, shrunken heads, shack/bayou items)
Gargoyles and garden statues
Tiki gods, realistic tiki masks or statues
Interesting witch shack items
Antiques or old items for details
Old, creepy framed photos
Flameless candles
Old cages or birdcages
Strobe lights or colored spotlights
Chains, tools, hooks
Apothecary jars
Severed heads
Cemetery fencing
A skeleton dog
Unique tombstones, primitive wood cross tombstones
Funkins and realistic pumpkins
I'd love a ton of the Dollar Tree carving pumpkins so I can start turning my front yard tree into a Halloween Tree a la the Ray Bradbury novel.
Antique, thrift and handmade as well as store-bought are amazing and perfectly welcome!

Dislikes:
Blowmolds and Inflatables
Indoor décor, paper cut-outs, etc.
Cutesy or country items
Glitter
Cute Disney
Nightmare Before Christmas (love the movie and Disney, I just don't decorate for Halloween with it)
Licensed or movie characters, like Jason, Freddy, Ghostface, etc,
Food and candy
Party items like dishes, trays, etc.
Candles
Music and Movies
Toxic waste/zombie outbreak/apocalypse items
Things that feature black cats (I'm sensitive to that, haha) or cat skeletons

Don't need:
Creepy Cloth
Fish Netting
Dollar Tree lenticulars (I have all of them)
Dollar Tree tombstones (I have all of them x2, haha)
Dollar Tree foam signs
Severed feet, hands, arms, legs, fingers
Candelabras
Potion Bottles

Stores I don't have near me, so I'd probably love things from them:
Christmas Tree Shoppe
99 Cent Only
Five Below
CVS (I visited one out of state this past year to get the teeth under glass)

Thank you Reaper! I'm excited to start putting a gift together!

2015 List for printersdevil

I would love a sign for our haunt. Haven Haunt

Anything witchy and/or fortune teller theme or wizard or similar conjurerers

I LOVE WITCHES, but expanded last year to include fortune tellers and other conjurers and had to cancel my parties. So I have a lot of stuff ready for this year. I just need to finalize some things and work on a plan to use it all. I do a yard haunt and hope to include the double car garage this year or the backyard which has a large screened in porch. I also am continuing to add things to my adult daughters Halloween décor.

Really would love some of the homemade PVC candles---not bloody just spooky.

Need want a cool spell book(s)

Can use bright gypsy vibrant scarves or things for my fortune tellers including jewelry

I am planning a room with conjurer wares so anything for it would be great---things they might have on display at a Conjurer's Consortium for wizards, witches, warlocks, fortune tellers, etc to purchase or see: wands, crystal balls, books on magic or potions or spells, brooms, mortar and pestle, witch hats that are unsual (love to hang them if not used on props or me), cauldrons, mystic jewelery, anything of interest to conjurerers, Famous witch or wizard photos or photo books of them (I have a lot of fortune teller's thanks to booswife02 and a Reaper exchange last year)

I have a Traveling Witch Kit that I made last year. Would love to have one for a fortune teller to display and maybe one for a wizard. Cool looking props!!!!

I want to do my master bedroom in a sort of Bed and Breakfast and a Spa in the master bath with a witch soaking in the 2 man tub. I have always used it as a spider's lair, but may totally change that. Ideas??????? Open to suggestions. Maybe a Dead and Breakfast or Love Ever After theme with a Tarot reader doing love things and couple on bed>>>> again would love ideas.

I do have lots of big spiders and webs that I love and will use somewhere. (hate real spiders)

I really need to work on lighting and music so could use help with either. Colored spotlights for cemetery in back yard. ALso would love to have some bigger tombstones. I have all small ones. Love how some of you used them last year and built them up.

I want to have a section of the graveyard for famous witches, wizards, tellers, etc. I have a stone for the Wicked Witch of the West that is pretty cool and has her hat on top of it. Would love a flying monkey for it.

I want to add stones for Maleficient, the evil witch/hag from Snow White and the Queen/Witch from Sleeping Beauty, Glinda the Good Witch, Gandolf, Dumbledore and maybe Marie Leveau, just any famous name that would fit the theme..

Games (homemade ones ) that we can play at my parties---based on characters from movies with famous witches, wizards, etc. They could also just be prop boxes that fit the theme for the store. (I love details)

If someone is good with images, I would LOVE to have a small flash drive with edited pictures of any of the above that I could just show as a slideshow.
or scenes from movies. I am not good at this stuff

Colored lights---strings of them or even Halloween shapes for my Creepy Cantina back porch. We leave the lights up year round.

Would love to have ornaments for a Halloween tree.

Love cool bottles for potions with or without labels. I have a bunch of smaller Crown Royal bottles that I hope to design a label for specific to me and this general theme. Just not how to make it fit the beautiful bottles.

I don't mean to be picky because I really am not. Anything witchy, wizardy, or fortune teller-ish and I will love it. Candles, candle holder for tables, scarves, table cloths (I use a lot of those small decorator tables that have the legs screw on and off them)


If someone sews,I would LOVE LOVE a long cloak, cape that is either dark green or red in a velvety look. I have a black one that I use a lot. It would need to be ample sized for me to wear. This would be the ULTIMATE GIFT.

I love the variety of things that I receive. I have gotten some of the most amazing things in these Reapers that I would have NEVER thought of. The creativity here astounds me and I love doing this.

I mentioned Spell Books and would so love to have one of those open book things with spells for some of the scenes I will have--Sleeping Beauty, Snow White, Hocus Pocus, Harry Potter, etc. I would so love something that resembled the Hocus Pocus book, but I am not artistic.

I want to work more on my displays. I have a great bookshelf to use, just need to have the items to make it work together. So anything for it for a witch. Another for a wizard area and one or maybe more of a display of teller stuff. I have been picking up books on various fortune telling things. Could also really use some signs either wood or things printed and framed for the non witch things. I have tons of witch signs (and still love them all) just need to develop the other things in the sign and display area.

Someone asked me why I always do witches---I just love them. I am really farming out most of my other stuff to my daughter and friends. WHo knows I may be sending some of it in some of the Secret Reapers.

I will always need spiders, toads, owls, etc. though. They are a witches right hand. Right?

Creepy cloth is cool and I use it a lot.

I love thrift store, repurposed, new and things that are just off the wall. I just love the hunt for things as much as the receiving and decorating. You send it and I will love it---PROMISE

I went to SA and Goodwill and a couple of thrift stores today while the weather was nice. We are expecting temps to dip into teens tonight again---which is cold for us. I kept thinking &^% would like this or I could do this for $&#. I am glad that I am not the only one to do this. I swear it is easier to come up with gift ideas for people here than for my family!

Very true Printer. I feel excited giving gifts to you guys because I really believe you'll love them. Also I feel like were more appreciative than family haha...and one more selfish point I tend to always love my gifts from you guys more than family members because I feel like you guys get me.

yeah,I agree with that! My husband seems to have the crazy notion that we are getting too old for somethings, and. that we need to be getting rid of stuff instead of getting more! What kind of nonsense is that? ?? I guess I really do see it to a point,but if you don't still do what you like,why still be alive? ???!!!
