    Great photos of a well layed out display. Like your lighting and prop placement too. The Pumpkinrot scarecrow is impressive and I loved the skeleton selfie pic. Strong work!

    Sounds like fun and I hope it happens. My only concern is that all the well intentioned people who voulunteered actuall come through and offer to help when it's time to roll up their sleeves. I've seen it happen many times and people who want to see something happen make the promise to help out but then things come up and they don't follow through.

    Damn! (Spoiler alert if you haven't seen it!) Sasha takes one for the team! Really creative way for her to go out. Eugene just needs to be killed off. Just when you think he'll come through, he continues to stand around with that sappy look like he just peed his pants. Damn garbage pail people but I had my suspicions about them from the start; just a little too weird. The whole Negan/Lucille thing is getting old. Thank goodness for CGI tigers who save the day. I thought it could have been...

    Assuming your display is viewed after dark, the green grass isn't a major problem. We have a green lawn as well. We stop mowing the yard in October to allow the grass to grow tall and give the space an overgrown look. You mentioned spooky trees. Are these artificial trees? We place large dead limbs around the yard, staked upright with rebar to look like old dead trees. Hang some Spanish moss off the branches for added atmosphere. You can even lay some dead limbs down on the ground. Focus your...

    Picked up this Death Studios "Living Dead" mask from a member at Haunter's Hangout. Perfect condition and will make a nice addition to my DS collection.

    We've used actors for several years and our results have been great! The interaction between a scare actor and the crowd, whether it be in the queue line or going through the haunt, can't be duplicated by an animated prop or static scare. Last year we had 30 people work our haunt. It was non stop scares and screams! Our carnevil crew from 2015 zombies 2014

    I know these are very simple and basic but I had time to kill so wanted to dress up a few of our witch jars. Got some wooden dowel caps at the craft store and glued them to the jar lids. Painted them black then brushed on a bit of brown. The variety will look neat.

    I saw in one of your posts you're a husker fan. Are you from Nebraska originally? I'm in south central NE near Kearney.

    Your haunt looks great! You must have a team of people to help you set up. Nice work.

    Hi...Glad you liked my little wall. There's no tutorial but there are some pictures in my props and mask album. Basically I adhered the blucky parts and additional items with some foam/plastic adhesive to some styrofoam (plywood would work too. I then filled gaps the with great stuff and spray painted when the foam was dry. The back and sides are painted with latex because I didn't have enough parts to finish. Since it's at the entrance to my underworld I've toyed with the idea of painting an image of a demon hand coming out from below.

    I've read about your pneumatics..but I wasn't able to find any images or video whern I checked your 2012 album. I am really considering doing the Casafear groundbreaker this year. I have a picoboo and compressor, so I've only got a few items left to go. Did you use 2" or 3" stroke cylinders? What bore size?

    "Outstanding craftsmanship"

    Thanks I am glad you liked it. I still need to finish up on the hands, but then I think it should be complete.

    About that political thread, for what it's worth, I don't think you had anything to apologize for. Didn't do anything wrong. But what do I know?

    No, I didn't think I could do a better job then Tara. It's basicly the same thing as her hell hound just a diffrent shape.

    Again, sorry for the delay.
