    Some video of the cauldron creep up and running. I still need to put a spotlight onto the witch to get her better illuminated, but you get the basic idea. The fire and ice light looks GREAT as a backdrop for this scene!

    Yea, foam is what most of us are doing window boards with. A lot of prep work, but it pays off in weight reduction and being able to easily customize them to suit your haunts look or theme. Some haunters use velcro for mounting, some (like me) use webbing straps that get closed up in the storm windows, and I've even seen strong magnets used a couple of times. Do a quick site search and you should find a ton of how-tos.

    I keep gore to a minimum and only visual creepiness, no actors trying to scare kids. Just my oldest dressed as slenderman creeping around the background. I want the little ones to be thrilled, not terrified! I'm in a small/med sized city that has a reputation for being kind of a trashy stinky industrial town, but I'm in a decent area that does not get a lot of foot traffic, but a lot of cars passing by. No vandalism yet. Keeping my fingers crossed and planning a fence lol.

    Home made web shooter. A cheap high temp hot glue gun with a small air line attached. The only way to go for realistic webs. Safer too since these webs are made from hot glue they will melt instead of burn if a hot light gets too close. Bagged webbing burns like a torch if it gets going!

    I do the same and don't even use drylock. I just do a heavy coat of flat black exterior latex as a base, then paint with acrylics and exterior latex paints to finish. I do the same over bead foam or Great stuff foam. I've also used a thin mix of monster mud over a couple of tombstones before finish painting with my regular paints and have not yet had any problems. I sometimes wonder if some of my fellow haunters are living in a tropical rain forest with 90% humidity and daily rain based on...

    Thanks! The with is about 3 years old and is made from a gothic witch dress, 2 tomato cages, 3 pool noodles, a plastic skull, an old man mask, and a long grey wig. I invested maybe $30 in building her. She is getting a little worn and faded around the face and I plan on rebuilding her using a HorrorDome mask that I really like. The signs are indeed foam, as are my window boards, graveyard sign, and the body of the giant spider.

    We received a new Yankee Candle 'rub and smell' catalog today and I was surprised to see new autumnal scents. (Or did I just miss them in the flurry of the Halloween preview activities.) Pumpkin Ginger Bark (an indulgent recipe of snappy ginger, warm pumpkin and rich vanilla sugar) Bay Leaf Wreath (an aromatic blend of bay leaves, orange and cedar wood) Apple Spice (the tantalizing aroma of a deliciously fresh donut made with apple cider, cinnamon, nutmeg and brown sugar) I must get a...

    Moooorrrre pics! Got off work at 7am this morning, slept for 4 hours, then got back to work on what's important - the yard display! Got the cemetery, witch, cauldron creep, window boards, and some of the lights up today despite off and on drizzle and lack of sleep.

    It reminded me of the candy corn and skull morphing things at CrackerBarrel. I think it is a similar idea.

    I got your message. I am so happy for you! Also, I just got back from the PO. The rats should be there Wednesday. Well, that is if the PO does not send them to California first. haha

    Inspired by others...here is my mummified fairy. Mini seketon from 99 cent store. Skeleton was glow in the dark (only ones I have seen this year) but painted brown/black with some grey highlights. Wrapped in coffee stained strips of old rag. Wings are parts from very cool decomposed leaf I found awhile ago and saved. Hair is from my wife's brush. Cloche is a vase upside down (from Dollar Tree) with knob glued on top sitting on a candle holder I had. Total cost...less than $2.

    I feel so bad for folks waiting to be reaped, especially since one of you is my victim. The PO obviously sent our reaper box to the wrong place, and after I had to ask for them to find it... they found it, and had to reroute it and FINALLY it arrived in the correct state and PO this morning and is out for delivery. Yay! I am so sorry dear victim. This was not my fault. I will be nervous that things are not broken. The weird thing is that the delivery status says in large green letters...

    My wife and 7 year old son picked up this curb find last week. Cabinet is nice (I like to fix up/restore furniture finds). But best part was what my wife told me about the "find." As she and my 7 year old son were driving down a street in our neighborhood my son yelled out, "Stop....we need that for Halloween!." Warms my heart just to tell this story! (And to add to that, my son agreed to walk home because there was no room in the car for him AND the cabinet.) Thinking of using it as part...
