Awesome tutorial Allen !! you just summed up my entire month of November in that post. I keep a tube pf super glue and duct tape handyfor field repairs while the haunts running. I use a little super glue to close the seam of the tear and the duct tape over the tear from inside. you will still have to do the latex repair later but this can get you thru a busy night. make sure glue is dry and tape smoothed out so they dont get in in their hair
I'm only doing this to impress 2 people ... The fire marshal and the customer that's it !!!
