    Not the same, but I believe I've seen a video for a xenomorph costume that showed the working bits... let me go dig. Edit: Not the one I was looking for, but this gives a good idea how these things are made:

    i have a love/hate relationship with AHS. i haven't seen every season but i've watched several with my wife, and i usually enjoy them while we're watching (some more than others) but when i look back at it after awhile, most of them i'm not sure why i liked them. i suppose that's a mark of a good storyteller, to be able to keep you interested in the moment regardless of how you feel about it long-term.

    oh my lord yes. we've stressed for years to do all the cutesy halloweeen-related food, and nobody cares one little bit. they want stuff to eat and drink and they don't care if there's a cheese ball looks like a brain, or if the regular old red punch is called witch's brew or whatever. even the people who bring food or drink as part of the contest don't really go into any halloween theme, mostly. that doesn't mean it can't be fun to do some of that stuff, just that it's not worth stressing...

    i didn't know that either. there was a Garden Ridge 5 minutes from my house in my college town but i haven't been there since i moved back home and i didn't know about the re-branding.

    Depends on your surface types, obviously, but I've found paint one of the easiest things to clean. Just let dry and peel off.

    I've been to the Mad Monster Party in Charlotte, NC a few times. A lot of fun, but I've been out of town the last couple of times it came. I saw the advertisement for this years, and it looked like they've REALLY cut down on the number of celebrities attending. Kind of a shame. But, have a good time if you go!

    The video looks terrific! You're right, the random movement is a lot creepier than a constant motion would be. I like it !

    Great ideas, Spookie! It all sounds good on paper. I hope it all comes together the way you want it to. Just wondered----why does it need to be transportable?

    Shroud tomb. Love it, it's on my to-do list as well. IIRC Davis Graveyard has (had?) a tutorial on one, or at least some pics of the process. They did it around 2012, same time as my first Transi. I'd use the thinnest cloth you can to save as much detail as possible on the form underneath. Might even be able to get away with just cheese cloth and dryloc.

    Like this a lot. We're going to try for something similar. Going to use a Walgreen's skellie and corpse part of it, possibly replace the skull with a more realistic one, then cover it in a shroud of sorts. It will lay on top of the crypt like you've done. Hope to start construction of that by next month. I'll post some pics as we make a little more progress. We've had a "crew" for the past several years, and we typically average between 15-20 helpers to make things run smoothly. Our...

    We've been working on props for our Druid Tomb theme haunt. I have 7 skull staffs in the works for some of our crew to carry, a few lanterns and soon we'll start on a crypt build which will be a focal point of one wall and a distraction for one of our main scares. My haunt partner (forum member lewlew) will be carving some foam Stonehenge-like obelisks and monoliths for the front display, as well as some interior catacombs. It should come together nicely. compared to last year, this build is...

    Looking for a few nice hooded monk/druid robes for this year's haunt. Can be brown or black, must have hoods. The Halloween stores sell a lot of cheap ones so those might work but something a bit heavier/nicer would also be considered. Let me know if you have anything you'd part with, how much you want for it and maybe a pic. We're likely looking at getting 6-7 of them. Thanks!

    Well, it's all plans and dreams at the moment. I'm happy to recommend the raven grass to anyone all day long, the other two are just hopefuls. Some years it gets a purple tinge, I'm trying to figure out what impacts that.

    I've done photo scavenger hunt type of games before. Especially easy if all your guests tend to have mobiles with decent cameras. :) For my photo scavenger hunt, I did 13 thirteens. I had either the number "13" or a group of thirteen objects. The first one was in the game instruction sign itself "the first one is free - this sign is one of 13! Take a photo and good hunting!" There were 13 spiders crawing on the kitchen wall. I had a entryway garland that contained 13 bats woven into the...
