    I just saw episode 3 and I must say this season has been surprisingly good.

    I was introduced to the show Hannibal a week or so ago, and now I'm all about doing a themed dinner party! No idea if I'll be able to do that or not, but it is super fun to think about. I'm thinking of trying again for a mad scientist lab at my local makespace, but putting it on a different day than Halloween itself. There's too much competition for the main day.

    I saw the second episode and I like it so far. I hope they can turn it around with this story.

    I did a swamp room for two years actually and thought why not just do it again since it will fit with the cauldron creep an it's budget friendly.. I did try out the camo betting from Walmart last year an loved it. If you have fb check out Nether Manor Facebook page. I do have photos there of last year an a previous year.. And if you have any questions feel free to ask me.

    Here is a new mask / bust (It can be foam filled or reinforced latex) Inspired by the character the Incredible Hulk. He was sculpted out of Wed clay and molded in ultracal, and then cast in latex. Added a sculpture pic at the bottom. This version was created to be not quite so angry/mean looking so as not to scare little kids so much. Had a lot of fun creating it. Hope you like it. :)

    It's been a while since iv'e been on here and to say 2016 haunt year was nothing more than amazing. So many may remember I planned to not do the haunt for 2015 but broke down and did it because that bug is serious, however, I'm going to be hitting my senior year in college and be in the midst of my process to get to the police academy, so the entire haunt is going to be hard to set up. It can take days to get up and it can be difficult with so much other work, so I'm going to down scale a whole...

    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.

    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!

    Trex- how many rooms or "scenes" do you have??? That walk thru goes on forever --- do the people realize how LUCKY they are????? And, theres no charge, just a donation. I will have to make it to your haunt one of these years for sure. Now for the inquiries: 1. at 12 secs: those black figures and tombstones-gorgeous!! What are they made of? What a great easy idea. 2. The masks roped on to picture frames...genius and easy peasy. Love. 3. The white cloaked figures with splatters...any real...

    How is your Wrongling Bros coming along? Is your setup all in your front yard? Haven't seen you post anything lately, but then I haven't been on here much. I've pinned a ton of your stuff from the Plague and Wrongling's-inspiration to revise & improve on some of my own props. I also want to make several of your boxes you used in the Pirates...either for the cowboy scene, zombie babies, etc..good dual use of a box! I'm busy with end stages of setup, and now watching it all blow away, literally. High winds, again, today. Several things broke, collapsed, blew away, you name it Hope your weather is cooperating!!!

    I started 2016 in July.

    Got 30 new blank stones painted, waiting for the epitaphs to be selected and written.
    30 New crosses painted, waiting to be assembled.
    Made a cemetary sign, hanging with chains...

    Trying to narrow the new ones down from roughly 600 notes I have, trying to make the best puns...

    Hoping to post 2016 pics before Oct 31 this year instead of waiting til next august.

    Still have to pull down the old stones, and decide which ones get painted over, and which ones need to be touched up.

    got 3 new gargoyles... oh, and gotta work on the lighting again...

    Hoping to add 2 or 3 scary scarecrows, Looking for more free scrapwood.

    You did a great job with "eyeing it up"!
    Knowing the name comes from a combination of the facts that I love tropical fruit, and that I happen to have a houseplant that produces a smaller version of those-- a little smaller than a ping-pong ball.

    I'm so behind!!! First the vacation, then we foolishly started a project for the non-Halloween portion of our life. (What?!?! Non-Halloween isn't allowed within 18mos of October!!! Haha) Of course Murphys Law was in effect so it's still only 95% done. But we should be finishing in the next couple days and it was adding a pool. So on the upside, have a pool to swim in to cool off while working on Halloween in this HEAT will be good.
    Wish me luck. I may make myself crazy(ier) trying to get my list done.
