    Lewlew and I will be doing our fourth collaborative haunt for this year. The theme will center around a witch coven. Ideas are going down on paper as we speak and small projects are underway. Dealing with a mask maker for a couple of nice witch masks. The floor plan should be finalized in the next few weeks and the build projects will commence in July. Much to do but it should be fun. Can't go wrong with witches.

    Nice. Creepy looking as an outdoor prop!

    Most of the things I do were poached from other haunters but a few simple steps; Age corks by soaking them in watered down black paint, or simply brush them with black and then wipe. Takes the newness right out of them. For the bottles I use a coarse sandpaper on some of them (60 grit works good) Kind of etches them and makes them look really old and worn. you can brush them with brown acrylic paint then wipe off. The paint will set into the scratches and give the bottles an old dirty look. For...

    I have three of their props and was considering another purchase last year but they had a 30% price increase which put them out of my league. I also asked a simple question about the increase on a Distortions forum and Ed replied with a snarky comment so they lost my business. Some of their stuff is pretty nice and some kind of cheesy in terms of costuming, detail, movement.

    Nice! Glad I dropped in to see this thread. Been stopping by our local thrift shops too and have begun collecting some bottles we'll be using for this year's haunt. I've been making labels for some of them, aging the corks, sanding the glass etc.. guess this gives away our theme but what the hey!

    We'll have it up on the site here soon. I have all of the parts and have been assembling the first run of 25. We were waiting on some machined parts. You are welcome! I am thankful to everyone here on the forum for all of the kind words and support. It's because of you that these parts exist! Thank you. The one currently on the site is a similar mechanism, but uses a much smaller motor. This new unit will replace the current one. Aside from having a much larger motor, the new one has a...

    You know I'm a fan of your work! Love the detail and vintage ambience you created. Having done a carnival theme in 2015, we know how much fun it can be and you captured it perfectly! Thanks for posting. Nice to have fresh eye candy this time of year!

    Hi All, I hope everyone is having a great Christmas. Since I had to take this guy over to my family's house tonight so he'd be there tomorrow (he is a gift for my brother) I wanted to take some pictures and video of him. This is him pretty much finished. I didn't have the back of the crate on thus all the red light projecting around him. I know the leering skeleton is a pretty popular prop. This the is the first one I have built and came out of it with a few tips for anyone looking to...
