Viking Costume

I was trying to think of a cheap way to make a costume for him as I roamed through the aisles of Target. They had some sweet faux-fur vests in the girl department that would have been awesome, but they were $25 and I didn't plan on spending that much on the entire costume. Halloween 2012 by Vaughn May.

villabarnes: Bleached Mirror

Revi guessed correctly. I used bleach to achieve that beautifully aged look on my mirror. When my youngest son was in Junior High School, I helped him with a science project on corrosives. Bleach was one of them. It will corrode the silver backing on mirrors. As always, be safe. You can use a spray bottle to spritz it, full strength, on the back of the mirror. Davis Graveyard 2013.

Haunted Houses, Halloween Prop and Haunted House Props. Halloween. Other Showcase your most recent craft! - Page 335. Britta Blvd. Halloween Recipes. My repertoire of recipes has acquired more and more body parts over the years, and since my Mad Scientist display has also grown recently, I have begun to arrange all the edible body parts together as a mad scientist experiment in process, complete with microscopes, notebooks, periodic tables, and lab coat hanging on the wall waiting for the doctor to return.

Not only does this enhance the mad scientist theme nicely, but it also frees space other tables for even more food, especially when guests bring their own revolting recipes! :) The Eerie Eyeballs, Bizarre Brain, and Haunted Human Heart are featured separately in this list. The bleeding hands are made in the same way as the Haunted Human Heart, just using peach gelatin with evaporated milk as the flesh, with the same raspberry blood syrup in a baggie bladder inside. The green substance in the large jar is an assortment of Gummy Body Parts purchased candies suspended in green "ectoplasm" soft-set lime gelatin. (back to top) HOMEWARDfound Decor: Tutorial: Faux Concrete Pumpkins. I was inspired by my recent trip to Roger's Gardens Nursery in Corona del Mar, California when I saw some HUGE, GINORMOUS concrete pumpkins at their store: One look at them, and I had a craft project in mind!

My versions would be smaller, naturally, and also lighter in color.... I wanted mine to be a bit more subtle and less scary than Roger's Gardens versions, so I went with lighter gray paint.
