  1. Projected Rain Effect

    Halloween Props
    Great ideas guys. One thing I'm worried about is my house is a ranch style so its long. I'm pretty sure there is no way to project the image on the house from just one projector. I'm wondering if I can leverage the LED Spots I'm already using for the lightning. I have a FF511 so I have 4...
  2. Projected Rain Effect

    Halloween Props
    Hi guys! Been a while since I have been on the forums but after a year off from Halloween from a recent house move I'm slowly coming back into it. I was playing around with setting up my Firefly Lightning controller last night and it looks great on the house. But I was thinking what would...
  3. Monster Mud Reaper

    Tutorials and Step-By-Step
    Hey guys! Been a while but I've been super busy as I've moved and we are doing a ton of renovations. Unfortunately no Halloween for me this year as I gotta get the house livable again. Here is some pictures of a second reaper I made last year. The kids call him Baby Reaper since he is only...
  4. Hi-Rez Home Haunt

    General Halloween
    Awesome job guys. Bummer I couldn't make it out this year. I was wondering what you guys were up to since I hadn't seen any updates for a bit. This year has been crazy for us and I almost didn't even do Halloween. We are in the process of selling and purchasing a new house so everything is...
  5. Lighting: LED placement and type used with your IZOMBIE or FIREFLY lightning gen

    Halloween Props
    So I finally got around last weekend to testing out the work around with my LED bulbs and boy what a huge difference! The bulbs work so much better now and really look fantastic. It's kind of a pain to have two separate incandescent lights just to make the effect work correctly but much...
  6. Static: The New Crypt for The House at Haunted Hill

    Halloween Props
    Man that crypt is awesome. I live in So Cal and I can't believe I've never known about the House on Haunted Hill until I saw this thread and then went to the website. I love the video of the show the animation and voice overs are amazing. I noticed in a couple of the pictures it looks like you...
  7. Static: Time Lapse of Phantom Hollow Setup

    Halloween Props
    I started setting up this weekend and I thought I would try something new. I setup my laptop and webcam in the driveway and did a time lapse of the 9 hours I worked getting the basic decorations out. If I could only setup as fast as the video is lol.... Check it out...
  8. Remodelling House to Maximize Halloween Architecture

    General Halloween
    I like option 1 as well. You already have a lot of detail going on and I think simpler would be better. But agree with Ghost of Spookie....I wish there was a way to easily remove the bars during Halloween time.
  9. How to have a yard haunt & still take the kids trick or treating?

    General Halloween
    I have the same problem. I have 3 kids. 6 yr old twins an a 2 year old. My haunt has gotten fairly big as last year we had around 800 ToTs. Since the haunt has gotten much more complex I always seem to be spending most of the time keeping an eye on everything. The past two years I was able...

  11. Monster Mud Reaper

    Tutorials and Step-By-Step
    Hello everyone. Glad everyone is finding the tutorial userful. Seems like by far the most questions I get regarding this build is the brackets. I have edited my original post to include the Home Depot SKUs for each bracket. By bringing the SKUs to Home Depot they should be able to find them...
  12. Atmosphere Effects: just ordered Atmosfearfx Unliving Portraits!

    Halloween Props
    I just have a home front yard display...but sometimes I feel like full haunt lol. I was planning on putting these panels side by side to transform the inside of our porch area to make it feel like a foyer or entryway. Every year its been getting crazier and crazier but that's the fun part just...

  14. Remodelling House to Maximize Halloween Architecture

    General Halloween
    Wow, an undisturbed 1966. You may be in for some scary finds. Lead-based paint, insufficient wiring, asbestos. That could be a real handful! The colonial style could be very cool. You'll have to post a pic or two! Ya not really looking forward to the discoveries :P. We are going to be...
  15. Remodelling House to Maximize Halloween Architecture

    General Halloween
    Isn't it amazing how much of a pain is it to hang a single door. So much time to get everything level and right :P. Well bittersweet news for myself. We are moving. Gonna be in the similar boat as you. Perpetual construction for a while. The house was built in the 1966 and its had nothing...
