    I was profiled in our monthly staff newsletter video, which means that a crew of professional videographers captured our haunt so far. Jump to 00:19 to see it. They did such an amazing job. Made it all look far cooler than it is :) Haunt video

    @Screaming Demons: That's fantastic! Thanks so much for sharing it. Is there somewhere I can look for more details on how it's built? I looked at your Youtube account, but I didn't see any other videos about this specific build.

    Screaming Demons, J-Man: It would be great if the winch had a remote. Not sure how it would work otherwise. If I put it on a timer, that wouldn't make it reverse when it reached the the appropriate spot. I don't think a wiper motor hooked up to a pulley would be strong enough. Any motors that...

    I'm planning a pumpkin king figure that rises up out of a pile of vines and leaves like a scarecrow. He'll weigh around 10 lbs in total. I'd like to use a wench to pull him up similar to my poor graphical representation below. My question is what kind of wench motor should I use. Ideally, I'd...
  7. Static: Masks: How to make a scary mask look "fresh" or more realistic?

    Halloween Props
    I also like adding a high gloss acrylic as a final touch to spots on a mask. It can make things look wet, goopy, covered in drool....etc

    Yardhauntjunkie: I'll take a few and post them. Can't believe of all of the pics I've taken that I didn't take one of the boat in the daytime. Doh!

    Nosefuratyou: The mermaid is carved foam. A mannequin would have been much easier. I had no idea how hard it would be to sculpt a bare chest that was realistic without being too detailed. ;-)

    So jealous! We saw "The House with a Clock in its Walls" this weekend and ever since I've been wracking my brain to find ways to get as many pumpkins as I can. The ones in the movie were so awesome!

    Halloween Props
    I have converted the hands in all of skeletons to make the fingers flexible rather than heating and reforming, mostly because I wanted to be able to use them in a variety of ways. To do it, I snip each finger at the joint, drill a hole through the bone from end to end, slide all of the bones of...
