anything that can be re-purposed (candle stick holders metal or wood, candle stands, old plant stands, trays, etc.) You never know what you can come up with using other things. Example I just tore apart an old lamp and am turning it into a lantern and a candlestick holder and the rest not sure yet. Metal stands, mesh trash cans anything that can be re-imagined.

I like lots of things and odd works for me too. I am not picky other than dislikes. I do a lot of shopping at Goodwill and second hand stores. I can use anything in any theme except carnival. That theme just creeps me out for some reason-lol
I hope I get you!! Lol

Thanks to everyone who has joined the 2nd reaper. I'm a newbie to this and I'm soooo excited!
Here is a more descriptive list since my first list was a little rushed
I decorate my entire house inside and out for our annual Halloween party. I have so much stuff for the inside that I don't even use everything! However my outside is seriously lacking. My yard is huge! Approx. 1.5 acres so I am in need of any help I can get!

My cemetery is taking on a Hollywood of Horror theme such as
Zombies & The Walking Dead (Negan Is my future ex husband!) but I already own lucille!
Character tombstones would be a cool addition.
Freddy / Jason/ hell-raiser/ Bettlejuice
anything homemade would be awesome I've seen some crazy talent on the forum!
latex or silicone mask that I could use for static prop and mannequins or one day an animatronic if i ever figure out how to build one!
any help in that category would be appreciated. such as parts motors and instructions.
ground breakers
3 dimensional tombstones since my haunt is seen from many angles
blood/gore (think the scariest haunted house you've ever been to!
Camp crystal lake or nightmare on elm st. sign.
Hollywood of horror cemetery sign
gargoyles for around my koi pond
creepy pumpkins

honestly i just love all things scary! My house makes small children cry! lol

animated Ouija board is the only inside prop i need

Family friendly! ha ha
already have a wreaths

Here is a more detailed list for my reaper. Hope this helps!!

*Anything gore!! Severed body parts, bloody butcher's knives, decomposed body parts in jars.. Any of that disgusting stuf!!
*Victorian haunt items. Hologram photos that change as you walk by, frames with post mortem or just creepy AF photos etc
*Spiderwebs!!! I am transforming my bathroom into a giant spider nest (Think Stephen King's The Mist!!) for my Halloween bash so I can never have too many bags of spider webs. Just please not the ones from dollar tree. They really are awful and 2 cents more than the good ones from Wal-Mart 😆
*Unicorns. Ive seen a few unicorn Halloween props that I absolutely adored
*Kitchen items - pot holders, serving dishes, towels
*Homemade!!!!! As a die hard crafter myself I would appreciate something made by my reaper!!!! If you don't diy, dont sweat it. Or even if you want to give it a go anyways I would appreciate anything made by you!!!
*Haunted mansion
*Nightmare before Christmas
*Anything unique or different that would look creepy in my haunted house
*Lights (plug in or solar), lanterns and strobes

I'm really not hard to please when it comes to Halloween paraphernalia. There's not much I dont like to be honest. Basically just dont need anymore wooden signs or wreaths because I already have so many.

I've only just seen this thread - so here is my list for my Reaper :)

No particular theme, nor a party planned just for personal enjoyment for our home
(One extra tho - if I'm matched with someone from the States I would love a little item of Bullseye the Target Store mascot -
but that's not a necessity, any Halloween style Bull Terrier plushy or picture or postcard (think Bullseye / Spuds McKenzie))

Anything with the word Spooky on
Pumpkins / Jack o Lanterns - pics, cards, ornaments, decorations, etc
Bats - anything bat related
Colours - orange, black white & purple
Tim Burton - mainly Frankenweenie and Zero
Cute ghosts, pumpkins, cats, bats
Glitters, sparkles, sequins, confetti
Vintage signs, stickers, papers, decorations
Imps, pixies, goblins, elves, gremlins, gargoyles
Eerie landscapes / houses / castles / graveyards / Cemeteries
Socks / Pajama bottoms (med - large)
LITERALLY anything with the word SPOOKY on
Scarves or blanket
Coin purse / wallet
Sleepy Hollow memorabilia (film or from the actual place)

Day of the Dead
Spiders / cobwebs
Crows / birds

Time to catch up here

How sweet, do you know what she’s having? Hopefully the “spookys” don’t bother your Grandchild like it does mine (she’s 3).
She's having a boy! I only had the one daughter, so I think a little dude will be fun. She still lives in my house, so we'll get to see him a lot. I keep seeing all these cute Halloween onesies & stuff and have to remind myseslf that he won't be here yet so I have to leave the stuff alone (for now!)

Wow my Walmart doesn’t have anything for boys or girls. I hear you as far as restraint. I was that way at Christmas (she was born in early Jan). Grandkids are sooooo much fun!!!
