    I've heard of them and seen some of their past stuff. A bunch of haunters who gather every year and create a haunt for their neighbors/friends. That castle is unreal!! Looks like a movie set!

    Now calling for rain and cold with a chance of flurries at night and temps in the 30's! It literalyl changes twice a day, but still holding out hope as we're sandwiched in between two nicer days. Hoping the front moves faster or slower, just so we can get through TOT hours. Seems the northeast can't catch a break.

    The forecast is a "bit" more reliable now but it still can change several times over the next week. The last two years were terrible in terms of rain, wind, cold, etc.. but we still did the haunt and still had fun. Just had to scale back on some animation and electric stuff. I'm guessing this year can't be any worse and right now it looks pretty darned good for us. Hope for the best but prepare for the worst.

    Wow! That was just so much fun to watch! Love your attention to detail and the whimsical feel of the whole thing. I can see why people are drawn to the pirate theme and you do it up right, MM!

    Finished the dismantling today in preparation for the move. We'll make several trips and build it from the back out, setting props as we go. Hope to have it all up and running by the 29th

    Some more pics of the progress and "deconstruction" as we prepare to move the haunt to my house on Monday. These are some of the completed haunt. Not going to give it all away now but will have more pics taken Halloween night

    Oh MM, that was just beyond words! You did a fantastic job!!!! There was just soooo much eye candy that I hardly know where to begin. I just loved the skelli dog with the keys (very clever) I really enjoyed the skelli wench holding out the cup, and I adored the wine drinking skelli. Your lighting was steller too. You did GREAT job! Your son and friends had to be over the moon, and as one of your party goers said... "It looks like something at Disney!" Way to go gf!!!!!! :D

    I totally agree, we fence off both sides of our walkway to keep the kids out of the yard but there is always one or two tots that ends up in our yard. The worst is when they cut across the yards in the dark rather than using the street. I wish we could fence our whole yard but it is just too big. I already put up about 100 feet of fencing now...:confused:

    I've had pretty good luck using landscaping staples. They do a pretty good job of keeping the cords nice and flat. They are easy to install and remove and can be reused from year to year. They are like $4 per 25 at Lowes.

    Are you talking about the zombie's hands? They are from Ghost Ride Productions. I believe they are called Ghoul Hands. I love their stuff. The joints used to attach the arms are ours. You can click the link in my signature to see them.

    SM, I am certain you could craft some waists for those little guys out of the hardware cloth. If you bend it down all around the edges it will make the plate a bit more rigid. I am glad the frames worked out for you. I can see that you were able to get the arms posed a bit more naturally. Building the little TOT sized kits are one of my favorites. Thank you Danski, if it wasn't for the support of the folks here, Spider Hill would not be. There are a lot of great folks here I have had the...

    This is one idea for the waist section and how I actually built my first swaying zombie before we had the kit. I'd use plywood and cut it out with a jigsaw. This will allow you to easily drill through or staple to it as needed when finishing your prop. The sizes are approx. Make the center hole large enough to slide down over your spine. Use the small holes in the middle to run some screws into your hips to keep it in place. You can space it above the hips with blocks of wood if needed. This...
