*envy* thanks for rubbing it in. lol Most of us are going stirr crazy waiting for ONE to open in our area.
I too thought Halloween Express was too expensive. I checked out Spirit and really didn't see anything I liked other than the Michael Myers. I won't buy him, but the way the eyes moved made you think there was a person in there. Spirit seemed to be about witches, spiders, and dead babies this yearWent to the first halloween store yesterday for this year. It was halloween express. They had a ton of stuff, but the price tag went with them also. They had the 1000w fog machines for 89.99. Party City has the same ones for 59.99. But what I usually do anyways is just go and get ideas then go home and build it.
