    okay so ive been the grinch of halloween all season long and its been a crappy year but this morning i was all ****! ITS HALLOWEEN! so i threw my crap together (or what i was willing to risk with the puppy), and tested the fog machine (given to me used from a friend last year) and it worked fine. Now, its just spitting out a wimpy trail of smoke that is reminiscent of a smoker who cant garner enough breath to exhale! i put a couple of ice cubes on it thinking maybe it was too hot... but that...

    I am so friggin' tired tonight. It is now officially Halloween, and I have a boat load to do tomorrow. I am so thankful that I have the full day off. I have my overall lighting done. The cemetery is done minus people and the pumpkin patch is done minus Lil' Pumpkin Nester. The maze is the sore spot. I have the red flood lights up, but I need to place all the animatronics and a couple I have to still put together. The maze will not be super scary because there is some good light coming...

    I only had an hour to work on my maze tonight. I am using "southern" corn stalks aka bamboo as my pallet filler. I had time to cut and drag about 15 bamboo plants to my maze. But the pic gives you an early idea of the look that I am shooting for this year.

    Oh, my gosh. What a gorgeous quilt & lovely soul. I'm having the Monday-est of Mondays and decided to take a quick break. Seeing this thread and your kindness & generosity completely made my day. Good luck to all! Can't wait to see the design on the back, so I hope whoever wins posts pics soon!

    I could not resist Halloween Asylum's recent sale. I have been meaning to upgrade the large spider in my spider display. I also picked up some large snakes and a few other smaller circus decorations. Below is Halloween Asylum's stock photo of my latest addition.

    My biggest addition this year is my maze. And let me tell you, I have gained so much respect for people who do walk through haunts. This has been a lot more work than I had anticipated. From securing material to installation, it has been an adventure. My biggest mistake was thinking that it would not be hard to fill up about a 900 square foot area. Since your are building a maze you can probably triple the area needed to be built out. I shall keep calm and carry on......:D

    It looks like it is not the same model as the Spirit and GR fire and ice type. It has a nice look but is different. It has an under water light pattern effect. The spots also are different. They do not have a strobe option like the Spirit spots.

    I am probably working, but I could take it off if I wanted to. I'm just part time, and non-essential, so they wouldn't miss me. Our office is only open till 11:30 on Fridays though, so it's more a question do I need the money or not. I'm off for most of November, now that my son has to have another surgery.

    Simply amazing movement and the sound is spot on. I think your prop is a hundred times better than store bought for several reasons. But the main one is that your establishing a knowledge base of animatronics that will allow you to build stuff that could never be bought and could only be dreamed up in your own mind.

    I don't think any weather forecast is worth two cents until about three days out. By then, you can see the storm fronts travelling in from other states and have good idea about direction. Right now for Atlanta, they are predicting no rain on Halloween but a 50% chance on Saturday and Sunday.

    I picked up the multi colored one from Lowe's, from their Halloween section. The Try Me was terrible, but I wanted to use it for both Halloween and Christmas, and I thought if nothing else, it would at least be good for Christmas. When I got it home and tried it out, I was really impressed with how much light it threw. However, I have only used it indoors so far, and we do have a street light right across from our house. I'm not sure it will do much out there, but I'm going to give it a...

    I have this SO BAD. I have not made a single thing for myself this year. I haven't repaired much of anything that needed repaired, either. I have very few things out right now, although I do hope to get a good portion of it out over the weekend, and may take a day off next week to get it all done. I think I'm going to be brave and put out as much as I can, and just take the expensive or irreplaceable parts in (fog machine, fire and ice light, heads from creatures, Wally skeleton and Becky...

    Yes! I got rained out last year. I put up a few things, and we had a handful of ToTs. I'm honestly afraid to look at the weather forecast...but I'm about to, anyway. I just put my name in for a possible newspaper interview, and I don't have even 1/4 of my stuff out yet! Edit: oh my gosh! rain one day that week, but not the 30th or 31st! I guess I really need to get my rear in gear!!

    Not a believer in haunted houses, so not a deal breaker for me. It amazes me how everything is caught on cell phone videos but we still have no great video of aliens or ghosts.

    I plan on taking Thursday and Friday off. I hope to have 50% or more done this weekend or at least ready to go for quick installation. Hopefully, I can finish all loose ends on Thursday. I was working on stuff all the way to 7pm last year as the kids started walking down to my house. I have no intention of putting that kind of pressure on myself this year.

    I know that Spirit has pretty much sold out of the led spots and fire and ice and toxic green led lights. Home Depot has their Christmas stuff out and LED spots and projection style LEDs in stock. The projection lights create an under water type effect. I had originally posted that these were the fire and ice type but it was confirmed by other members that they are not. The spots are also different than Spirit because they don't have the strobing option. They are made by Gemmy but are...

    I use the opening credits score from the movie Clue at the entrance to my walkway. Aside from having a (ever so subtle) Clue themed haunt, I like its ominous sound.

I suggest that we stack the bodies in the cellar, lock it, leave quietly one at a time and forget that any of this has ever happened.
