    There are a lot of great ideas that you have there and that have been shared. I did these for the zombie apocalypse portion of our end of the wrold theme in 2012. There were various scenarios of the end of the world and zombies were one of them. The boarded windows are easily made with extruded foam insulation. Go to a hardware or paint store and buy a wood grain tool. They run about $5. I used that to do the wood grain on these boards for our garage windows. It is a simple...

    My rudimentary drawing of the first build I am going to tackle this year. I think I am a better builder then an artist! This was just an example of how my drawing turned into one of my facades. But it turned out like this so hopefully the next one will be fine. :(

    Bang for the buck, I would say Los Angeles!!! There is so much cool stuff. Not sure about first week, but there are tons of haunts and yard haunts!!! I won't go on vacation that time of year because there is WAY too much fun stuff here. Halloweentown and cool events.

    Oh and for sure with the gauges and dials on my super secret prop after the steam garage is done. The steam garage is the setting for the prop I am most excited for this year!!! Lots of dials, gauges and lights on that one for sure. I am so excited I might start it before I make the garage facade!!!!!:rolleyes:

    So I did google "steampunk Batman" and I am super inspired. I don't think I am even remotely talented enough to dream I could do a steampunk Batman costume justice. I am definitely not a costume guy. However I wish I could incorporate it into my theme if I was able to create one. Gotham is always an inspiration for me when I think of my yardhaunt though. I dream of making my work more gritty but steampunk at the same time. I hope to achieve that with the facade I am about to start, which will...

    Holy crap! That would be an awesome costume!! A steampunk Batman? Whoa cool idea. I actually use Gotham as inspiration but it ends up looking cheerier when I make stuff. I want to be more gritty in the future.

    That is a good question. I would like to sound like I am organized and technical, but to be wholly honest, its all still sitting in the garage. I have some reinforcements in town visiting so it will possibly get stored up in the rafters of the garage while I have some help. That way I can get started on phase 2(and park a car in there as well). :cool: I built the panels to store flat. It actually is not that bulky when broken down. This is an example of a single panel. They are 4 foot wide...

    Wolfbeard replied to a thread Other: foil backed foam board ?? in Halloween Props
    I have used the foil backed insulation to make a "super computer" for my evil scientist lab. This was for out B-Grade Science Fiction Movie theme. Here are a couple of shots: It is lightweight and versatile. It would be awesome on a light wooden frame if doing a steampunk theme. Just rust it up with paint. Eric

    Thanks! Great ideas. For sure going to add more steam! Been researching new fog machines. I did have a grate and pipes with steam in 2014. The grate was above the door of the clocktower.

    Last year (2014) I was able to pretty much finish "phase 1" of our yardhaunt! A few small details didn't get done but for the most part I got the big pieces finished. We are going with a steampunk theme. There is a clocktower, storefront, boiler and crates.

    We are expecting more kids this year. We were somewhere in the 100 to 200 range. That was because we are brand new to the neighborhood and to be honest most people didn't quite understand what was going on. Set up will start 2 weeks in advance this year so that will help. Also we will be running Friday night as well so that might increase traffic.

    It has decent sound. I don't do an overall soundtrack for my haunts and parties. I try to stick with localized sounds for specific scenes and effects. This is definitely worth the $20, for my purposes. It will also be nice for listening to music when I relax with an occasional cigar on the back deck. The bass is not great, but for it's size, the sound blend is decent. Eric

    Mine is scheduled to arrive today. For $20, it was worth the chance. Thanks for the heads up. Eric

    Two of us built this 24' long pirate ship for our Lion's Club Haunted Hayride. It was built in three 8' long sections that each had to be trailered out to the field, assembled and brought back in each night. We used traditional 2x4 construction and luan plywood to get the curved effect. PVC drainpipe was used for the masts. One year, we eliminate the middle section, bolted the two trailers together and used it as a parade float, since it was finished and painted on all sides. Eric
