    Didn't see it mentioned so I'll toss this in as well; Start NOW!! Tomorrow is August 1st. If you are planning a haunt, regardless of size, and you haven't started the ground work yet, you're already behind. Don't wait until October to start putting your ideas on paper. Inevitably, someone posts about huge plans for an elaborate display or haunt on October 1st and asks "where to begin." By then, in most cases, it's too late and the person just gets frustrated. Have a plan and start on it as...

    Thats the stuff I like at Michaels. Things you can use for props. They seem to have some different stuff this year, a bit more variety than usual like the chains/hooks. Thanks for the updated pics.

    Glad to see them carrying orange led spotlights. I'll pick up a few of these as orange wasn't available last year

    Thanks Angel! You're not the first person to say they mistook Road's End for "end of the road". lol! Mark and I are both excited to start working on this very soon. Gym, I have absolutely no idea what this has to do with my thread, although all of your posts somehow promote/mention your haunted house. Just an observation.

    Thanks! Looking forward to what we'll come up with. Ya never know! We've actually discussed doing a "pro" haunt in the area at some point. Maybe when we no longer do our home haunts and can devote the time/resources to it. As lewlew said, not downsizing, just "intensifying"! Actually using less space, and just packing a whole lot into it. I'm thinking we may do this type of thing for a couple years before I actually scale way back but I'm excited to be doing this. It's going to be...

    In two weeks I pack my son's stuff into a UHaul and move him to ASU Polytech (transferring as a Jr.). He's has been an indispensable helper (plus occasionally a friend or two of his) over the last ~15 years with our growing home haunt. I've decided to hang it up for the next couple of years. The work is just too much for me alone. My juices will have to be satisfied vicariously for the next couple of years - at least. Guessing I will take a lot of crap from the neighbors (or maybe they...

    My Sister-in-law got us one of these last year. Pretty good quality. I actually got it to stand and lean against a fence.

    Every so often there will be a thread that mentions how fun it would be if we lived in the same neighborhood and all decorated to the hilt. I have the pleasure of living not far from two other haunter friends (and forum members); lewlew from Roads End Cemetery, and Motel Sixx who does an awesome walkthrough yard haunt not much more than a mile from me. We've all visited each other's haunts and have collaborated on various projects over the years. Road's End is taking a break for a short time...

    I like this a lot. Creepy even in the daylight but will be pretty foreboding in the dark with dim light coming through the slats. I'd like to see pics of it decorated and lit. Nice job!

    Lots of potential! I'm trying to guess where you plan to hand out candy from. I agree that using the car port as a scene would be great. Maybe use that as your candy area. Enclose it with black tarps and use blacklight for a ghostly scene or make it a witch shack. The lawn space with the tree would be a nice cemetery. The TOT's have to walk up the drive past the graveyard towards the car port, whch is going to get them nervous to begin with. Can't tell how big the yard is but you have time to...

    A mostly clear, cool night with temps in the mid 50's to low 60's. Light breeze, enough to drop some of the leaves off the trees but not so much as to blow the fog all over. Some big wispy clouds that partially obscure the full moon. The TOT's would arrive on time and we would be ready with the haunt set up, jack o lanterns lit, sound and lights all working to perfection. After two hours of TOT, we would hang around outside for another hour, taking it all in and enjoying the evening. The big,...

    Same. Not entirely set up. Seems to be a lot of the type of stuff they normally carry. nothing great. I usually look for the foam skulls/half skulls and anything a bit creepier but IMO, they have scaled way back on good stuff over the past few years.

    Your cemetery is amazing! You did a great job and created a realistic looking scene for your visitors, whom, as you mentioned, were quite imprerssed. To me, one of the best things of Halloween decoratiing is knowing that the vast majority of people will put out a lit jack o lantern or some paper window cut outs. Anything we do above and beyond that is something people will remember and talk about for a long time. You're well on your way to becoming "that house"! Strong work!

    Only 14 weekends left. Summer is a busy time for a lot of us so some of those weekends get taken by other things. The pressure to really get busy will kick in very soon.

    Had a small pic of this sign that my son found somewhere. Fed-X does custom sign work so I had them make this in a 24x18 corrugated plastic. It came out really nice and will go perfectly in our zombie theme this year.

    We were thinking the same thing the past two days. Very fall-like temps and big gray clouds. A couple more months and we'll be there.

    I have the kit too. It's assembled buit I need to dress him and get a head/hands. Yours came out great! Nice job on fleshing him out. A small suggestion would be to maybe tatter up the pants and shirt a bit. A box cutter would make some nice slits in the arms/legs. Fray the pant/sleeve cuffs a bit with sandpaper. He looks good!

    Yes, I'll be having a couple more sales. There is some Halloween stuff left over, including the electric chair. I'm not sure it's worth your drive at this point. In my opinion, the yard sale was a success. I think everybody was happy with my prices. No one seemed to complain. It was sad to see my stuff go...

    jdubbya replied to a thread Electronic/Software: Spirit Lurching Zombie = BADASS! in Halloween Props
    It's not a bad sculpt, and the mouth movement is nice. I agree that the "lurching" is not very pronounced or startling and it does look flimsy. Always disliked seeing the wire armature through the clothes, as you do with so many of their props. For $200.00 I would expect it to be a bit sturdier.

    I ordered from them a couple years ago and as I recall, shipping was prompt. Check the pricing on the props however. some times the same thing can be found elsewhere at much lower prices. Their mark-up on certain things is high.
