Hi everyone

I'm new to the forums and thought I should introduce myself.
I'm Sam (or sammywoo as everyone calls me)
I'm obsessed with all things halloween, probably to the point of insanity. Never built anything remotely prop-worthy but always wanted to try.
Sadly I live in England, so the only kind of halloween prop or decoration that gets sold is cobwebs and occasionally foam skulls, but that's about it... Also, no Home Depot or Walmart so buying prop making material is hard.
But hey, I'm creative, so I'm here to inspire myself and see what I can do.
So, yeah.
Hi to all

Sam

Welcome aboard. Just browse around and you're bound to find ideas all over the place that you too could re-create.

Welcome! You will soon learn that if you can think a little out of the box, there's always good prop making material no matter where you are. Oh, the insanity helps quite a bit, too.....:D

BTW....there's no such thing as ghost poo.

thanks guys, already I'm filled with inspiration (and just a tiny amount of fear)

Does it make me crazy that I'm looking at the vacuum cleaner thinking, "I could make such a great ghost out of you"?

Welcome Samhein. Glad to have you aboard.
Sounds like you have the perfect outlook already - and no worries about having a walmart or whatever... you can make props out of ANYTHING.
There are many talented folks here to inspire you! Looking forward to seeing what you put together this year! :)

Hi Sammywoo,
You will find that you can make your own props out of stuff that other people throw out. Shop at Curby's often for free material. Also, check out our $20 prop contest archives to see that you can make all kinds of props for cheap. Can you say, "Papier Mache"?

Welcome to the group. Everybody here is friendly and helpful. We can't wait to see pics of your property with some props.

Hello Sam,
I lived in England and experienced the downsized Halloween! We are here for you, and everyone else trying to celebrate in Blighty!
