That’s amazing how different the two stores were. We only got one and it had one little rack of home decor stuff and the rest of the entire store was costumes so they were never on my radar to check. I didn’t even know they sold the life size items until it was mentioned here.My Halloween City advice: I don't know how many locations they have nationally. Near Boston there were only two Halloween Cities last year. One in town, that had very few large props, and one in the suburbs (Dedham) that had WAY too many large props. Stacks of them that were never going to sell. Maybe Halloween City isn't run smartly. My advice if you have them near you: Find one near you that is overstocked, go in Nov 1 and get everything 50 to 75% off.
Spirit is much more smartly run. I almost never see an overabundance of large props. I once went into a Spirit in Manhattan and they did not have a single large animatronic/prop. Not one.
Could you take a picture of the violin next to something for comparison? I'm curious how it would look attached to an actual skeleton playing it, or if it's way too small.
Here’s what it looks like with a life size skeleton. Definitely a little small! This is more like ukulele size.Could you take a picture of the violin next to something for comparison? I'm curious how it would look attached to an actual skeleton playing it, or if it's way too small.
It's not that bad. Keep in mind it's a violin, not a guitar.
I haven't been tempted to buy anything in several years now, but that animated rocking horse doll and the toy box and even the tear apart doll they have on their site is really hitting me in the feels... I did a scene a while back with a haunted nursery and rocking chair and old china dolls and baby dolls and such. I LOVE creepy dolls/toys! I almost want to do another party just to do THAT theme now.
And the violin is likely getting bought. Got a violinist in the family, and it's playing Dance Macabre by Charles-Camille Saint-Saëns (one of my favorite composers).
