    We live a block away from a busy elementary school so we get the buzz going a few weeks before. We normally put our cemetery fence and columns out the first week of October. We'll add a couple things each week, usually inexpensive tombstones, or props that can be secured against theft, etc. If we do the cemetery scene in the yard display, we'll set it all up a couple days before with lights, etc but any expensive props don't go out until Halloween day itself. Our haunt structure goes up a week...

    Thanks! I think it's one of our favorites from last year. Lewlew nailed the lighting with a small blacklight spot. The mask and costume really popped in the darkened room. He got a lot of great reactions from guests when they walked into the last room!

    The front yard display portion of our haunt will be a witch forest scene. There will be a coven of three witches, one stirring a cauldron, and some movement on at least one of the others. We'll have a couple of tombstones, tree stumps, skeletons, rats, bats, toads, etc... Should be a nice, creepy witchy scene for folks to look at before they make it to the walk through portion

    In one of the tutorial videos, I recall he said that it's about a 6 hour project. This would not include the drying time for the glue/paint. I think right now I have 3-4 hours into each one. The painting will be time consuming to get the desired detail. given the amount of time until Halloween, I'm good spending time on them. I don't think I would have started these in September though.

    While looking for witch related things for this years haunt, I came across Gourdin Fester's tutorial videos on these really cool looking "rot jars", or witch lanterns/swamp lanterns/whatever you want to call them. I've never worked with paper mache before save for projects in school so this is a fairly new endeavor for me. These are just too cool not to try. We'll have 5 in total in the front yard display part of our haunt and here are some progress pics. Rot Jar 1 - YouTube

    These two are being made by DSS, formerly Dark Side Studios. I wanted witches to compliment my Death Studios Swamp Witch, but Death Studios other witches didn't have the look I was after. Dark side had these two and they'll look great with Swamp Witch.

    Can you describe the space? How much area do you have to work with? one car? two car?. Is the garage attached to your home or detached? We've used our garage before and now have a free standing structure that is 12' wide by 24' long. How many visitors do you normally have on Halloween? This would determine what you need to do for traffic flow (having both an entrance and exit door vs just a space where people walk in and look around. Give some more info and it would be easier to give...

    I have a length of waxed twine that I used for a handle on my latest one. I think it will hold up well. You an easily coat twine with beeswax to give it a protective quality. The twine handle was so much easier than the wire too!!

    I discovered Raison d'être through John Wolfe's Season of Shadows website a few years ago and really like them. Some Halloween themed artists I've found are Shadows Symphony and Audio Zombie. Of course there's Nox Arcana, Midnight Syndicate and Verse 13 too. There's several dark ambient artists on Cryo Chamber that I like. They also have a few free samplers too! The cool thing about bandcamp is that in most instances you can sample the whole song instead of 30-second excerpts that most...

    I think this might be what I need to get back into the swing of things. :) For everyone thinking about large eggs, you could always paper mâché over a balloon if you can't find the size you need. I've found that about five layers makes a pretty sturdy form.

    I was thinking about your foam walls for your walk through, you might be wasting your time with my grommet idea. I think it will take too much time and still might not look very good. My new idea is to use vinyl "j-channel". This is the stuff they use for putting up siding around windows. You could attach strips to the sides of your walls (you already have the bottom taken care of with the 2x4.) , then feed the foam through the top. It would hold like a piece of glass in a picture frame. I think it would give a cleaner look and would be an easier way to remove the foam.
    It's just an idea so if you don't like it, no harm done. I am also not sure how tight the channel would be against the foam. You may have to research that.

    PS
    Just another thought, you could run the channel horizontally in lieu of vertical to save money and avoid the seam between panels.
