    I hear you Cloak_Dagger. Last three years we got a freak snowstorm 2011 (lots of damage), a hurricane 2012 (three weeks of set up, then Halloween was cancelled), and torrential downpour 2013 (only half our lights were on and it was so bad the soles of my shoes fell off). Please Oh Please Oh Please... let us have a dry calm night this year!!!!! Please?!?!?!

    If you have any audio mixing skills try making your own. First thing that comes to mind is to get a big bag of rice and put it in a big bucket or pitcher, then record it being very slowly poured out over a board or something. Might have to try pouring at different speeds and across different surfaces, but I think it would sound like thousands of little tiny feet scurrying. Add in some random insect buzzing sounds and loop it.

    I would worry about any printing showing through, but unprinted oned might be fine. I used stretch wrap film on mine and was able to roll it into simulated withered muscles and tendons, then shrink an outer wrap of stretch wrap film over top. Next one I do I'm going to try and use some small rope or twine to try and simulate the look of veins under the skin too.

    Hilda replied to a thread Electronic/Software: Lighting, Extention cord tripping hazards ??? in Halloween Props
    We had to start adding fences around every scene, and we have clearly marked paths and sidewalks to begin with. What surprises me is the amount of parents who will pick up their children and put them OVER the fences. :eek:

    Hilda replied to a thread Electronic/Software: Lighting, Extention cord tripping hazards ??? in Halloween Props
    Usually, I don't have much to add to threads like these, I'm not an expert at any one discipline... but tripping over cords is sort of my thing here. We have over 450 blowmolds and dozen or so inflatables and countless other lights. We have cords as far as the eye can see. We keep people out of the individual scenes with little fences, but there are places where the cords cross paths. I too absolutely recommend the use of the landscape staples to keep the cords down. Space them...

    Oh my gosh. The damage is certainly heartbreaking! I agree with the previous posters that your house is so gorgeous and lends itself so well to being a 'Halloween House' that perhaps you can salvage some decor and still have a hauntingly good time.

    Here are some photos I took of real tombstones (for research)... you can see that gritty worn texture that people are talking about above, that the Drylok is imitating. (I am referring to the texture of the surface. It will take me years of practice to be able to simulate that cool lichen/moss effect like Terra can.) Here is a closeup of one of my first foam tombstones. Cool similar texture using the Drylok.

    Hit every after Halloween clearance sale you can afford to. I think a lot of us build their haunts over the span of years by buying cheap and building what we can. I keep my eyes open year round for items on my wish list or things I can scrounge or repurpose. I am fortunate to have a long history with art and a lifelong interest in horror, fantasy, and science fiction so things kind of evolve on their own for me as I go. I know what direction I want to go with my display and will spend a lot of...

    Hard to believe this is the same kid that wanted to be Thomas The Train 2 years in a row! Last year he went scary with a skeleton/reaper costume with glowing red eyes. This year he wants to be SUPER scary so we started digging through the big costume tote to see what we could come up with. We put this together with a dollar store knight costume, one of the skeleton masquerade masks from Michaels with the hand removed. Cut slits in the mask and added an elastic band. The shoulder spikes came...
