Nice… That is so amazing… I am super jealous… I have wanted one of those for so bad since I saw my first one 3 years ago… just haven’t been able to afford it… I would totally do a complete Monsterfication on it… add some corpsing to it… but alas… maybe next year
I did get my 7ft one from Walmart last Friday though… Aged him out a bit… I think it came out well
But I plan to get several more bigger props done this year… like I just finished up my Zombie unicorn last weekend
and will finish my ground breaker this weekend… this pic is just the base layer of corpsing (used duct tape and a blowtorch… it was fun)
@RiotDemon They did debut last year at home depot… but I had seen them done as one off commissions… because of some groups I am apart of… the one offs were like $800-$900 and did not have the eyes… but the home depot ones are so great… and way cheaper… but still too pricey for this guy…
I got Georgie from Walmart for $79.00 a little pricier than I would have liked being the 5ft ones are $29 most places… but still totally worth it… I will say after getting him… I do worry about the joints… they are a bit flimsy… just a heads up… but for me it doesn’t matter too much be cause I will be removing the arms and legs and repositioning them so it looks more natural before I corpse it
Man. I wish y’all lived up here. Our property is an acre with all kinds of hedgerow and crazy paths and I’ve always wanted to make it into a crazy Halloweentown. Methinks it would be epic if we all teamed up. Too bad my laser printer isn’t capable of creating a teleportation device!
The best and to be frank the only Halloween party we ever went to was at an old house in Uniontown, Maryland. The best parts were:
You entered the house by sliding down a coal shoot into the basement, was made to put you hands in a bucket filled with uncooked chicken parts and their was a guy with a chain saw revving the saw up for special effects.
They had a fog machine to create a low cloud level about knee high in the house as you walked around.
I had just left the CPA firm for another job and there was a big tombstone with my name on it and the dates of my employment in the living room.
But the hit of the night was in the bathroom upstairs-their was a dead body with blood splattered all around in the bathtub which you couldn’t see until you got entirely in the bathroom and closed the door. Everyone was handing around outside the bathroom to hear the reaction of people inside (screams mostly) when they saw the body and the massive amounts of blood.
@Kyeh@RiotDemon sorry I totally missed this. Mine varies. I think the light it gets and the age affect the foliage’s overall color. I have a raven zz and if it gets too much light, it’s green and not black. Same with the begonia. It’s currently starting to darken now that it’s getting darker sooner.
I’m boxing up what’s left of our Halloween decorations and taking it over to the vet’s office for the kids there to play with. Use there, take home for personal use, whatever. It makes me sad to see Tigger holding his pumpkin up on the shelf in the garage. He needs a new home.
They’ll get more use out of it than we do.
No kids in two years. Less than five the year before than.
I remember (before trunk and treat and big deal school carnivals) when we had over a hundred kids. Not all were from the immediate neighborhood, there are a lot of apartments about a half mile from here and parents would drive their kids over.
I guess the door to door kids have aged out in our area. Granted, it’s a hard walk here. No sidewalks and very, very hilly. Hard to do if you’re not in shape. (Just ask me, I know.)
I used to love decorating the day of and undecorating the night of.
I want one of those 12’ skeletons so bad, but it wouldn’t survive the winds we get here, plus the fact we live where hardly anyone would see it anyway. I suggested we get one and put it so it was sitting down in our foyer, but hubby wasn’t into that idea.
I was at home depot this morning. I didn’t see the skeleton but I did see some dog skeletons that they had arranged around some fake gravestones. If I had not been in a hurry to get back to the house and fix the stupid leaking toilet; I would have arranged one of the dogs to hike a leg on a gravestone.
@Kyeh@RiotDemon I have so many dolls in bins in my garage I could for sure pull that off… but alas it is not… I actually do not decorate due to lack of Trick or treat traffic on Halloween… I live too close to a neighborhood that the main street is called Cemetery Hill and that neighborhood goes full throttle and no kids Trick or Treat around our neighbor because of it
