I wanted to cross-post this from the CVS thread for people who dont have a CVS and may be looking for a Pose-N-Stay.
CVS.com (CVS Pharmacy) just added a few items to the site today, including the Pose-n-Stay skelly. With the %25 percent off "25SITE" email coupons, they're just $37.50 with free shipping. That's cheaper than Costco had them, I think. Just sprung for three since my local CVS was dragging their feet on putting out decorations and I doubt Ill find a better price until clearance sales. I'm sure more items will be added to their website eventually. If you want to check later and the link below becomes invalid, the halloween items are hidden under Household/Seasonal Decor.

I am hoping to make large 'dragon eggs' and bought 36" balloons as my starting point. Do you folks think that just using a paper mache coating will be sturdy enough when the balloon is deflated? What is the best paper mache recipe to use? Any tricks or tips I should know before going this...
Started working on this year's big prop to put up for sale. Doing a smoldering corpse of a witch who has been burned at the stake. The corpse will have smoke (fog) seeping out of it and there will be glowing coals and wood around the bottom of the stake. So far I've gotten as far as creating the...
