    jdubbya replied to a thread Electronic/Software: bagpiping skeleton.. prototype. in Halloween Props
    That is AWESOME!! As a competitive bagpipe player myself, I had to click on this thread. Nice movement on the fingers (not that anyone will notice) and the tune "Going Home" is a traditional funeral song as well. Absolutely love this!

    Nice stuff! You've had a productive year. Love the bear skull creature. That is just creepy!

    Yup, I've scored 2 gallons of oops paint a couple days ago for $8.00. It was a dark gray/green and they darkened it even more for us free of charge. It's a charcoal gray now and will cover a good portion of the interior. We have begun painting and setting props/signs in a couple of the rooms and halls. It is coming together very nicely. The dad of one of our helpers has offered to help us transport the haunt panels to my house with an 18 x 8 foot trailer he has access to. This will be a...

    yea don't waist your money, to get crawl on the ground fog you have to chill it down a lot, those machines can't. you need ice cooler 2 or 3 bags of ice and hose to wrap around inside cooler. spend your 70 on that instead you'll be happier. paint the cooler up like a TNT box.

    Going with this banner as outdoor advertising. 2x4 feet, heavy outdoor vinyl and 4 metal grommets. Should get the buzz going!

    I think most of us are already looking ahead to next year! With regards to our plans; we've tossed around the idea of securing a larger space to possible do a pro or semi pro haunt. I'm sure that with enough help and some backing we could put together a haunt that would rival anything Erie already has. Of course that would mean giving up our home haunts and also devoting a large chunk of time to the venture, something I'm not sure I'm ready to do yet. If Mark is able and willing to help me...

    Went again today and got the chattering teeth since they came so well reviewed here, and picked up a third crow skeleton. They only had four of them left. Think I'll also send them a note of appreciation for the nice selection and tell them that good items sell well to a big Halloween community.

    Thanks! It's coming together nicely. We're scavenging paint now. Got two cans of olive green/gray "oops" paint for $8.00. The halls will be black. It's not pro level but lewlew has done similar builds before for his haunt and I've learned a lot from him. The thoughts of going bigger next year have crossed our minds more than once! Yup! The machine gun nest will be against the outer front fašade. It will have a dead guard, some flames, a couple guns and other props to simulate an...

    In the next couple weeks, we hope to have it painted and then begin to place all the props and lighting so we can have it all assembled as it will be on Halloween night. We need 12 actors to make it work well and we have ample help lined up again this year. Since only two of the rooms are prop heavy, we can get those out of the way fairly soon. We have pretty much all we need in terms of props. Painting the interior halls and ceilings will take some time. Most of the walk through will be pitch...

    Our forecast changes daily here so I put absolutely no stock in any forecast over two days out. I'll settle for dry and non-hurricane force winds. Calling for windy and occassional rain, and the whole week looks dreary. Too early to even worry about it.

    While I'm not a big fan of political correctness, whatever that may be, I think BG made the right decision. The head props may have been inoffensive to most but in light of the recent atrocites in the Middle East, props like this could trigger a lot of emotions and complaints. Better to be proactive than put up with a lot of crap from others. i'm sure the severed head props won't be missed by many. I remember not putting out a Don Post head on a stake prop years ago after the first publicized...

    Ours had bare shelving. Two clerks were putting up the merchandise tags. They said everything would be out by Monday but it was all still on pallets in their back room. They seem to get later each year. Figure to stop back on Monday and make a pass through. The past few years have been unimpressive, IMO, so not sure what I'm hoping for. If they have nothing, they can go on my list of places crossed off, and that list is growing.

    Selling two military jump/flight suits. Bought 4 of them from Halloween Asylum and can't really use these two. The light gray one is tagged XL and has multiple zippered pockets. The green one is tagged as a 46 inch chest and has a button front and belt. Both are like new. I'll sell them for what I paid at $15.00 each or buy both for $25.00 The deer motor works and is priced at $10.00 plus shipping PM if interested

    I might just get one of these. They aren't too expensive and I know I could use this in a multitude of haunt scenes. Glad to have seen the video.

    If this is a commercial haunt, do you have a way to post signage outside the facility soliciting volunteers? Can you advertise in a local paper or even do a radio spot? How many nights is it open and what are you expecting of your actors? If it's a multiple night huant, you may have trouble getting people to commit. Some will do it for a few nights for the fun but then peter out. Paid help might be more reliable. What ages are you looking for? The problem with young helpers is that they often...

    Went to 5 different CVS and found the bone crows at the last stop. There were four. Used a coupon and got one for 10 bucks and change. Going back tomorrow to get another one.
