Hiya all over the pond,

ever since my first HHN experience a few years back i have been big on celebrating Halloween over here at home. Unfortunately not many people share my enthusism and I still have to come over to Universal studios, orlando for my fix.
Last year I made my first "haunt" and it all went quite well and even got a few minutes on the local TV station. This time around I want to be more ambitious and was looking at making some "monster mud" creations, but over here in the UK just try and get your hands on Latex Paint and Drywall Joint Compound !!! I went into my local hardware store and they looked at me with blank faces when i asked for those products. The closest I got to Latex Paint was errrrrr Latex Body Paint which they sell in the xxx adult stores.
If anyone has any pointers or help they might be able to share to enable me to make my own "monster mud" i wold be very grateful ..... or its ebay and lots of £££ on pre made props


thanx for any help you might have ......... a desperate UK halloween haunter !

John

As the saying goes.."two countries seperated by a common language"...

Stick around on the forum gazpacho, and you'll soon get a feel for how the different brand names and products convert to what is available to us here in the UK.

In the vast majority of cases, there is a viable alternative available here.

Perhaps we brits should band together to translate all this wacky american naming non-sense ;) hehehehe
It's a thought Scry...We already have a "Haunters Dictionary", Maybe we should have a US-UK translation thread too..

I remember on a trip to Florida, being somewhat bemused when somebody suggested I might like biscuits with my fried chicken...:confused::eek:

haha, I can only begin to imagine the look on your face!!
what the F are they anyways???
Oooh.. they're as weird as buggery, they really are...
Try to imagine something halfway between a scone and a dumpling..
That's a biscuit...Apparantly. Don't taste half bad though, in all fairness.
