    I get great satisfaction from my happy patrons here. A few nights ago there was one young man in the group and the second I saw him my mind said("He;s been here before , and it was a LONG time ago!") At the exit at the house tour's finale I asked him how many times he has been to my house? He told his Dad grew up just 10 miles away, and that when he and his Brother were toddlers (3yrs old) Dad would bring them here all the time. "I have been through your house 100 times." (He's 30 years...

    "Grrlgoye" I often say and sometimes do outrageous things to show people by bad or incorrect example. Much of my art work is also like this. I also like Irony. Now I must leave and wash my hair. I have them all nervous since they don't know which one of them will be drowned!

    Even when i was a very small child I liked to "Out-Hide" the other kids.. I guess that was one of the reasons i liked Haunting, getting to scare people by popping up from the unexpected depths of some obscure rat hole! I had a Haunt in my Parents basement , I was in the JCs and built and ran that, now this is my 30th year of ownership of my Ravens Grin Inn and if I live to be 300 I would still love to be doing this. One of the reasons it has turned as good as it can be, seemed to happen...

    We had some very remarkable audiences here last night! They all got to meet our new puppy, she is only 10 weeks old. She is supposed to meet at least 100 people in her first Month with us for her "Socialization", she is well on her way to that! The groups varied from a man who has been here over 100 times to an entire group of "First Timers" who have been trying to get here for many years! The Ravens Grin "Formula" is actually pretty simple.. entertain them, make them Laugh, then give...

    there used to be two vastly different kinds of fire bricks, the very hard kind and the almost crumbly kind,very easy to carve, pick at, rub and make whatever it might be that you want, from the Crumbly style, the hard as diamond style--- not!

    As my wife and i were talking about this today, she reminded me that the school administrator never blinked or said anything during the numerous times his little boy was saying over and over, "I was trying to hit "The Spooky Car!" This made her very mad. "Nice" example for the kids for the Parents to just Dummy-up when certain words should be said and certain ideals be shown the light of day. If I was throwing rocks at their car window, but accidentally broke out the Thermopane window for...

No, I will have a "No Escape Room" here. No one will be escaping, either. It is really simple and EASY! Bring along your "Power Of Attorney along with any property deeds you may have.

    Today as I was gathering up numerous pieces of bad blacktop and getting rid of them and their potential for being thrown through a window in my house or my car, I began to run a memory check concerning all of the times someone has pitched a rock at my house and thinking about their up-bringing and their Parents possible influence upon what they did. First Time --Someone was throwing rocks at my Haunt- The whole large Family were all just standing there as some of their children were...

    Nightfisher--I have my dropping spider(s) just coming off a tree limb, but I like your setup with the skeleton a lot better. The prop would probably be a lot more noticable that way. I don't know when his video was posted, but it looks like that Toddzilla guy is using my Spider Lifter mechanism I made and posted here on the forum in 2011. VIDEO:...

    Hi Pax ! Sorry, I haven't logged on in a while. That's cool your wife had a '69 Mach 1. I love mine, but I think I like looking at it more than I do driving it. I just spent a year and a half putting new headers and a complete Flowmaster exhaust system in it. I'm waiting for warmer weather to get it out of the garage. It was 14 degrees this morning. Brrrr...... Take care and I'll talk to you later!

    I know I haven't been on here in a really long time. My life kinda got taken over with working on the house... ok its an apartment but my wife and I call it the house. Anyways, we've been working on the house, of which our landlord, who is awesome, is letting us do whatever we want to the place so long as we're not damaging anything. So we've let our artistic urges take over and some really awesome things are happening. I will post pics when I have the chance. I decided to take my stories and...

    Hi and Welcome to the forum! :D We do have several resident experts on blowmolds on here, but not sure if they'll be active this time of year. There is always a small core group that visits year round, but the place gets hopping around July with all the planning and building. In any case, you can try using the search function to seek out blowmold threads from the past and hopefully some folks that have some knowledge will pop in here and help you out at some point.

    Gym Whourlfeld replied to a thread Prop Showcase: Tree of Restless Spirits in Halloween Props
    It is quite a project to make a tree, let alone one that has a certain "Personality" about it! This sort is of off -subject but some may find it interesting. A retired man in my little town here has been collecting parts of real trees. The "Parts" he collects were inhabited by some kind of a parasite? Which made the normal trees grow around the Parasite, creating quite an imaginary scene of strange bends, swoops and tiny shapes which most imaginations have no difficulty "seeing" mini-worlds...

    Quite impressive! Nice! The local Summer-Stock Theater here got the scripts for "Little Shop of Horrors" but someone forgot to send them the Plant-monster costume so they asked me to make them one "Right Now!" It ended up being a smooth round top of the head with a Gob of black wig hair along the back edges, kind of an obscured face that had one big horn curving upward from it's face, all Green of course, all looking very odd to say the least! I still have it somewhere around here? ...

    One of the two couples who came through The Ravens Grin Inn last night took a nice picture of the top of The Spookmobile. You see the steel Skeleton reaching from inside the open suitcase on the roof in the luggage rack and he's holding an old license plate in one bony hand that says Ravens G." My Wife saw the humor in this picture right away.. in the backround, in the far corner of the City Parking lot is the small, Red, Santa House that belongs to the City... so someone may come away with...

    Hey Otaku, where about's in Southern BC have you been. I live on the West Coast, in the Upper Fraser Valley in a small city called Chilliwack BC. I'm about a 15 minute drive from the Abbotsford/Sumas Border Crossing, little less if I forget to watch my speed,lol. And about a 1 hour drive East from Downtown Vancouver BC.

    Hello Otaku, I just love your Angel on the porch. I'll have to send you a picture of the 2 I purchased, I'd love to know how you have her illuminated? And I can't wait to see your current project when she's finished. Loved the album pictures.
