    Lewlew and I will be doing our fourth collaborative haunt for this year. The theme will center around a witch coven. Ideas are going down on paper as we speak and small projects are underway. Dealing with a mask maker for a couple of nice witch masks. The floor plan should be finalized in the next few weeks and the build projects will commence in July. Much to do but it should be fun. Can't go wrong with witches.

    Most of the things I do were poached from other haunters but a few simple steps; Age corks by soaking them in watered down black paint, or simply brush them with black and then wipe. Takes the newness right out of them. For the bottles I use a coarse sandpaper on some of them (60 grit works good) Kind of etches them and makes them look really old and worn. you can brush them with brown acrylic paint then wipe off. The paint will set into the scratches and give the bottles an old dirty look. For...

    I have three of their props and was considering another purchase last year but they had a 30% price increase which put them out of my league. I also asked a simple question about the increase on a Distortions forum and Ed replied with a snarky comment so they lost my business. Some of their stuff is pretty nice and some kind of cheesy in terms of costuming, detail, movement.

    Nice! Glad I dropped in to see this thread. Been stopping by our local thrift shops too and have begun collecting some bottles we'll be using for this year's haunt. I've been making labels for some of them, aging the corks, sanding the glass etc.. guess this gives away our theme but what the hey!

    As if the stills weren't enough! Awesome video. You got some great scares too. Your actors did a great job. Again, strong work all the way around!

    You know I'm a fan of your work! Love the detail and vintage ambience you created. Having done a carnival theme in 2015, we know how much fun it can be and you captured it perfectly! Thanks for posting. Nice to have fresh eye candy this time of year!

    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.
