    victor-eyd replied to a thread Electronic/Software: Help with Vixen and 8 channel Relay board in Halloween Props
    Thanks to all who helped me get this project off the ground. Here's my first setup for 8 channel using my available xmas trees and the Stanger Thnigs theme music. I'll probably replaced them with pumpkins and more Halloween-related light displays but for now, i'm happy with the outcome. The clicking your hear is the board but with the garage closed you can't hear it at all Victor

    victor-eyd replied to a thread Static: projecting onto the ground? in Halloween Props
    The easiest by far is to simply mount the projector from the 2nd floor window and point towards the street. Take into account that depending on the type of projector you have, either the resulting image will be smaller than what you'd like or too dim because the lumen output of the projector is too weak. If you already have your projector, simply test by firing it against the garage wall at the same distance it would be suspended from above. That will be the size and brightness of your...

    Decorating the inside of the house this week and should be done by Friday. Out Haunt is ready to go, but it depends on the weather. Last year, we had to close the walk through because of rain the entire week before Halloween. This year, I have a few different things planned if the weather holds. Feeling the pressure, but should be okay.

    Well, I couldn't help it- the ebay guy lowered his price to me to $30 so I pulled the trigger. Should get it by end of the week. I'm pretty confident the picture quality will be closer to my Optoma so I'm very happy. Hope it comes in 1 piece Victor

    Mr. Mortician also told me that the funeral home he works in is a huge building that has a Cupola" on the roof.(But it's not an old building) People will say that they sometimes see a little girl with "Red" hair up there, al though many have also seen two women up there sometimes.

    Tonight a Mortician happened to come through my haunted house. I felt that I just had to ask him."Ever have any supernatural things happen to you?" He then told me about when an elderly woman died (Who was supposed to be somewhat of a psychic persona) Her Daughter told the Mortician that a small ring on her Mother's little finger was to NOT be removed for any reason! Another worker there did remove the ring to clean the body more efficiently, and thought nothing of doing this because the...

    The "Haunted Rock" theory of why this part of town has so many odd things, and supernatural things happen here seems to be alive and well. Yet another incident in our tiny "Down Town", recently told to me involved a ghost sighting in the aisle of a store building here. The figure , a "Man", simply vanished as an employee was looking at him. A drawer of merchandise opened as items flew , the items out of it and all over the floor! Things fall from the shelves, that should not have been...

    The remote might contain the button to change the playing modes of the videos- meaning it be altered from play once to loop play and from stop play once video ends to auto play next video in the folder. I did not research that far into the pj's capabilities but its possible.

    I think the biggest low effort impact on staging your house for a party is removing all the normal decorations that don't fit with the theme, or creep-i-fying them. Lots of photos of the family? Change them out to creepy black and white antiques, or print out and add witch hats, vamp fangs, googly eyes, or spider webbing. Got some sports memorabilia or other stuff out there? Remove it and hang old picture frames, mirrors, or blackened canvases (can usually find some decent sized fancy...

    Hi and welcome! :) If you're speaking of the "great stuff" type foaming insulation that lots of us use for props, then yes it can be used to create some pretty simple yet grossly effective guts. But do read up on how to handle the stuff, because it is MESSY and can stick to your skin, hair and will ruin any clothes you're wearing. Recommend making sure to lay down a tarp or cardboard in the area, using gloves (I use latex gloves so I can work with it better sometimes) and very old crummy...

    I might be in line too on Nov 1 if the price if the price is right. But there are so many $40 projectors I can get on ebay with the same lamp and built in media player but higher resolution (typically DVD grade) that I may not even bother going to HD. I mean, here's one right now with free shipping http://www.ebay.com/itm/iKKEGOL-UC40-800x480-Portable-Simplified-Mini-Home-Theater-LED-Projector-/122143677412?hash=item1c70549be4:g:OOIAAOSw14xWJsOj Victor

    Recently two very old, classic homes have been bought here and the new owners are spending much-o bucks fixing them up. both houses are on the busiest street here and really needed fixing! Great to see this happening for the houses with turrets and cupolas and balconys.(And Wisconsin yellow bricks! )

    As fifteen heavily armed and armored men disembark from an armored bus the gate is opened by one of them with an electronic, hand-held device, and they all file in, careful to not expose their entire silhouettes as they hop and sprint between the sparse shadows of the Prison yard. "Noise" on the way!" Several helicopters fly low over the cell block covering any sounds made by the advancing party They are trained to be living "Ghosts" and stealth is their main weapon.

    It is an ad for another online community that uses similar colors and overall look to Halloween Forum and we're not sure they can confirm the info in the ad itself. It has been brought to Vertical Scope's attention.

    HalloweenRadio.com was affiliated with this forum at some point for it to have been included in our main header link, so not sure who the third party could be or when this change happened? If it's not part of the forum, I'd suggest taking the link out of the headers on the pages. I'm pretty sure if a radio site is still wanted in the links, that HalloweenRadio.net (not com) might be a viable alternative (no idea who owns that one either, but at least they're playing Halloween songs).

It was impossible to match the two images to fit without either zooming in/out or repositioning the pumpkins so it would work. I'm fairly...

    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.
