    How about making a simulated room outdoors that the ToT's have to walk through....test the stars under blacklight to see if they pop, if they do cover the walls with it and get a dual 48" florescent light & 2 blacklight tubes. Then get an all black morphsuit, cut out extra stars and use fabric glue to adhere them onto the dark suit in the same pattern as the walls......You would in effect disappear along the wall and the ToT's would not even know you are there. Not enough time for this year...

    Always something to do as we're coming down to the wire. I finished a new prop for my graveyard and think a good spot for it would be right in the front corner where the ToT's turn to come up my driveway. Turned out ok though I'll have to make a white cover next year for the inside top of the casket.

    Hallowindow looks terrific blasted onto the side of the house. Those bouncing skele's are always a favorite :) You embed the video bu copying the URL in the box that opens up when you select the Filmstrip icon in the dialog box.

    Major kudos! This is a fantastic build! I've always wanted to do this and I am sure others as well so maybe we could use your build as an inspiration and guideline to dive in and take the plunge! Quick question....do you have any issues with straws falling out...etc?, what kind of glue did you use? Thanks for posting this. Great job on the build.

    The brown is a great color for a tombstone. Your cracks are the best I've seen - I just can't quite get the knack for those, heh.

    You may want to explore the music genre called Epic Music. It's the songs used in movie trailers. They are heart-pounding and some can be just a bit scary enough for Halloween but not overly so. Here's a couple of examples:

    Ugly Joe has a great point. To add to that - what brand of fake blood are you using? I used PermaBlood from Pale Night Productions and it was thick enough not to get soaked into the expanding foam.

    That looks very cool and the idea of using spray adhesive is brilliant.

    Wow, Diabolik! What great ideas to quickly (and lightly) bulk out a zombie. Hope you don't mind but I'd like to toss into this that you can go to Level: Bananas! by further manipulating hardware cloth. It really is a prop maker's go-to cloth. It's a supreme medium to fold, bend and pinch into exactly what you want. When making Terra I took many of the following ideas from LaurieBeast's, The Vampiress tutorial. A dress form is a helpful start to form the top of the torso. Here you can see...

    Hopefully we can find why you aren't getting a lot of sand residue using Drylok. Before use it's thoroughly stirred to get the silica distributed top to bottom in the can. I do not thin it all. It is applied with a 1 1/2 angled brush and I make sure that the final brush strokes are always downward so you start to see the grain of the sand start to develop. The first coat will give you an essence of the stone-look but it's imperative that two coats are applied. The second coat's silica starts...

    I will try to get that fixed ASAP for you. Another idea is to pm me your email address and I'll zip that off to you.

    Hey, sorry it took so long to reply. Yeah, I actually have a short video of my 1st test of the fog chiller. At the time I only had about 15 lbs. of ice in the cooler. I also had to duct tape the opening to keep all the fog from leaking out. It worked out really well on the big night with 20 lbs. of ice and lasted the whole night. I will be using it every Halloween.

    Hi Attain, Thanks for the friends request. I accepted. Looking forward to working out some prop ideas with ya. From a below post it looks like you are located at the opposite end of the city than I am but still nice to talk to someone on the forum that is "local".

    My software can be motion activated with an Insteon Motion Sensor. In the "Triggered" mode, LSM only runs the show when it is activated by another Insteon device, such as a motion sensor. If you just want to add specific audio to a prop, I've heard that the ELK-124 module (actually made for a security system) is a good way to do it. It is relay-activated, so you could hook up a motion sensor to it and it will play the recorded audio. I haven't used them yet, though.
