    Thanks. The lanterns are easy to make and I got the tutorial from SK Austin of The Haunting Grounds.

    We normally keep busy all year with projects for the next season. Been making some witch lanterns and totems, along with getting a few more tombstones ready. just a hodge podge of stuff but less to do in the warm weather and these make nice winter projects.

    I have my doubts. I was going to order a couple more costumes at 75% off but changed my mind halfway through the order process. I recieved an email the next day from them asking if there was a problem and would I like to continue with my order. I realize these emails are automatically generated but I replied anyway and flat out asked them if they were going out of business, along with the fact that they were a great vendor, good customer service and all that. That was about two weeks go and I...

    What is the layout like in terms of usable space? Are you using just the yard, a porch or patio? part of the driveway? This will determine, in part, what you can do as far as props, etc. Would this be a display only type of yard haunt or a walk through interactive thing?

    Always a visual treat! I'd love to come with you guys just to pick out the props you use. Every scene is so well detailed and interesting. Really looks better than most professional haunts in terms of sets, lighting, etc.. Strong work once again. Your actors are fantastic btw! Great costuming and make-up. This just checks all the boxes!

    Hands down one of the best mask makers out there. Excellent sculpts by varied talented artists, thick pulls, awesome paint jobs and a money back guarantee. Can't ask for more. I own 5 of his masks and will likely add a few more next year.

    I helped clear out the Halloween stash at my local makerspace, so now I'm offering up what I can't use myself. This stuff is available for best offer + shipping. If you want more than one thing, I can figure out the combined shipping cost for that. I'll be adding more to this post while I get pictures and figure out shipping costs.

    This prop is part of a haul that sat in an attic for a few years. It originally had crystalized acid in its battery compartment, but thanks to a helpful tip, I've been able to restore it. It works beautifully! I've seen this for sale between $250 and $300. I am happy to include first class USPS shipping for this.

    I love this! Everyone else hit the highlights; the prop placement, lighting, and overall atmosphere you created was perfect. I can imagine a young child walking up to your front door and the excitement/apprehension they must have felt. Your home is gorgeous as well and a perfect backdrop. Good to see you posting again! Strong work!!

    Thanks very much! We had fun putting everything together and the visitors really seemed to enjoy it. The line was long for most of the evening but we kept it moving pretty well. We also have actors working the queue line to keep folks "entertained" while they wait. Thanks! We really did have a fun time. My son took the pics, many of which were taken right after the crowd died down. We had the actors stay in their spots and he went through the haunt with his camera.

    What an odd comment. I'm sure there was no confusion here. Does every one of your posts mention your inn? I have yet to see one that doesn't, and now rather than commenting on the OP's talent, you just have a need to clarify that this isn't your display?

    Outstanding! You know I'm a fan of your creations anyway but seeing them on display like this really showcases your creativity and talent. You and I will have to talk before next Halloween. I may have some work for you!

    This is really fantastic! Too much to comment on everything, but love the vintage look and color. The banners are gorgeous, and the lighting is spot on. Definitley one of the most interactive and involved walk through haunts I ever saw. Will watch this again and again.

    Dang! That was really impressive! Nice lighting, well put together scenes and the scares were good too! Hard to visualize how big it is in the dark like that but it looked to be a decent walk through. Lots to look at. Really nice job!! Welcome to the walk through club!!

    Just beautiful! The graveyard is haunting and the ghosts rising from the ground are fantastic. Love the blue fire and ice on the corn stalks! what a great effect that gives. All of the little details like the tea lights, witch jars, etc all make it a showpiece. Very strong work!

    Thanks for the link. Is your website? I think I've visited before.

    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?

    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.
