    Anyone ever done a medieval knight theme for their haunt?
    Would love to see some pics of you props, especially any battling knights.

    Anyone ever done a medieval knight theme haunt?
    I don't know about battling knights specifically but I know for sure that I've seen some fabulous castle builds shared on here. Some with drawbridges etc. Kind of a slow time right now here on the forum. Apart from any responses with photos, I'd definitely suggest a search by Castle, Medieval and Knight.

    I kind of have some preliminary things for a castle/knight setting like costumes which were bought after season and then there are 3 plaster-like faces that Grandinroad sold a few years back. I've seen them listed on eBay recently btw but a DIY face mold could also work to do something similar. The faces got me to thinking about a cemetery scene near a castle with the faces incorporated into the top of a stone sarcophagus for the dead "knights". Sort of like this....



    As far as castle facades go here's a couple of amazing over-the-top inspirational medieval castle set ups:
    First one by keithcorcoran and his wife in this thread for Maleficent: Maleficent Castle Entrance and Throne Garage Facade
    Then there's the Boo Crew's medieval castle: Full MEDIEVALCastle Facade for Home Haunted House
    I can't locate the castle with the drawbridge that I wanted to show you. Sure it's on here somewhere.

    If you were fortunate to pick up the full size Skeleton Horse prop from Home Depot this past year, he'd make a great knight's horse. Really can't recall seeing any knight props that I can recall.

    Thumbs up

    Absolutely love this idea! (as one might well expect, given my screen name . . .)

    For general inspiration, see Paxley's 2016 thread (which links to his prior years as well): Paxley's Haunted Castle 2016

    Also, if interested in building a ground crypt, check out Lord Soth's thread: Undead Knight's Ground Crypt

    couple of years ago there was a house near my neighborhood that did this.

    Wow!
    That is the best haunted castle set up I've ever seen.
    Thanks for sharing those great pics.

    65Ace, the photos Cyberhaunt posted are of Boo Crew's castle I mentioned above. Believe it or not the owners house is hidden inside of it . I haven't seen many photos of the Castle but a local news channel covered it. Didn't notice any other "knights" in the footage but it will give you an idea of some of the interior.



    Cyberhaunt, see you live in the area. Any chance you have more photos of it?

    Here's two other video showing different areas of the castle. Surprised this guy's videos haven't had many eyes on them. The first one is done at night, the second one during the day.

    Unfortunately I don't have any other photos. Each year the theme changes. For 2016 they created a hotel.

    I did a haunted mansion theme that had a knight made by Gag Studios.....Not sure if you've ever saw them but they are made of hollow foam....ZR

    Look up art from the Dark Souls and Demon Souls Games. A lot of the enemies are knights and most of the areas are medieval castle and city based.
