    Would love to have live performers or helpers but nobody ever shows up who says they want to help so I'm a one woman show. Tried a few ways to get helpers and none ever worked.

    Tempt your fate went really well at my party a few years ago. Just search it on here for all the instructions.

    I plan on doing my haunt this year, then next year just a party and a small set up on the lawn for the big night (something I can do alone in an hour or two). After that, who knows? Maybe a good sized haunt every couple years interspersed with years off or just small displays. I've invested a lot of time and money (as I'm sure we all have) amassing props for a wide variety of themes. Every few years I sell off some items to purchase new and keep it fresh, but it would be nice just one year not...

    I worked with the same craft foam to make Faun's head, and breast plate. They turned out pretty well. My next project is this insanity mask, it's for a new haunt character we are adding this year....I will use craft foam and thin card board as base, and Hearty clay to build up the face.

    It's a great mask as is, glass eyes and maggots would also look pretty cool. I feel it should be a static prop, the mask is so well done people need the opportunity to view it.

    Trex replied to a thread Other: First garage haunt... Any tips? in Halloween Props
    There are so many things you can do to make your garage feel like an entirely new location. Our home walk thru haunt is pretty elaborate and begins in our 2 car garage. If you can afford it I would recommend fabric panels, you can find great tutorial here on Terra's Lair. Remember to create scare spots for actors, include 90 degree turns, niches, things like that. We use a small fog machine (a must IMO) on a timer to control how much volume is pumped out. It totally adds to the atmosphere and...

2016 Season a BIG Success

by Tconahaunter on 11-01-2016 at 07:03 AM
Another Halloween season has come and gone...And what a season it was. Even despite the weather being less then favorable. We accomplished all we were hoping for except 1 thing.

First of all. We finished our garage reno, which provided us with a great backdrop as well as ample power for our haunt. Setup this year went smooth as silk and we were open on Friday(28th) as planned. We had about 100 people a day throughout the weekend come to see the haunt.

As for Halloween...

Big plans for 2016

by Tconahaunter on 02-06-2016 at 09:13 AM
It's been over a year since my last. A lot has happened since my last entry. First off we have a new location for our home haunt. The new house now gives us indoor space to set up our haunted walk through. This allows us to set up earlier in the season and makes our haunt more secure.

Secondly. We ventured into community haunting. We partnered with a community organization and held our first community Halloween festival "Scared in the Square". We are working to improve

It's been a while

by Tconahaunter on 06-13-2014 at 10:00 PM
As you can see it's been a while (about 6 months) since my last blog entry. It's been a bit of a roller coaster year for me. My dad suddenly passed away back in January and that really took the wind out of my sails as far as Halloween work went. He was my main helper with all things Halloween and his presence will surely be missed but not forgotten.

Back in April I ventured back to the shop to get my head back into things; and we're off to a good start. As per my last post, I am still

Another haunt come and gone

by Tconahaunter on 12-12-2013 at 04:56 PM
Sadly Halloween 2013 has come and gone, but that means planning and construction can begin!
For 2014, we are wanting to expand on the "rooms" theme that we started this year. We are hoping to build a large 12x18 ft structure that will contain 6 individual rooms. Each of these rooms will have a different theme (butcher shop, mortuary...). There will be three rooms on each side and you will be able to walk around the structure to experience each room. Also included will be user actuated

by Tconahaunter on 10-20-2013 at 09:11 PM
Less then two weeks till the big day!!!

Prop building is winding down, with only final touches to be made on this years new props. As stated in previous entries, there are some new props being added (pneumatic). The pneumatic system for the motion props got a complete revamping with a new control board and electronics from Fright Ideas (BooBox Max and motor controllers). All the programing is complete and beta testing should be finished on Tuesday. Set up will commence fully this
