That's one big ass skull you have there:D
I have mostly small things that I'll use in some of my scenes.
2 Mr Jabberjaws skeletons (K-mart)
a latex vulture from Spirit
2 large resin gargoyles from Target
2 masks and some hands from Death Studios

For homemade stuff; 3 4x8 sheets of 2 inch foam board
10 2x4's, 1 2x8, 3 sheets of 1/8th hardboard
some pvc pipe

Still need another fogger and some juice, plus a wiper motor

Almost done, which is good. Starting to get things together now.

I was in the CVS yesterday and noticed a small coffin filled with gummi body parts. It contained 75 pieces for $9.99. I might go back and get one. I gotta think about it.

Spookydude, those are the best tombstones I've seen. I wish we had something of that size and interest around here. I did buy 2 from Walgreens bigger size hard foam stones, but still, they are only 26" tall.
