  1. 2019 Gothic mad hatter tea party

    Party Ideas. Experiences and Recipes
    hmmm...not sure the weed barrier would hold up the wind - the 4mm tarp acts like sails and snaps the 1 inch wood (that's holding it) in half. I've been slowly replacing tarp with wood walls year after year, but at $250 for 100 feet of wood walls vs $30 for a 100 feet - the tarp wins the cost...

    OHOHOHO - my big purchase came today - so ridiculously grateful I could splurge on this. The Fright Props talking skull with BooTunes!! Now - before I begin on how awesome this prop is, I must announce that it was not my first choice. I wanted the cheaper skull from Monster Guts and have...

    LOVE IT! I'm such a hoarder. I keep everything. Well, except for the hundreds of yards of black tarp. I throw too much of that away each year as it's all nasty from the weather. I need to find a more eco friendly covering - or wash it and reuse.
  4. Where is your Halloween space?

    General Halloween
    My Party Haunt(tm) is my entire backyard. This photo is a few weeks old - There is more now. I have a few gathering spaces for people to hang out and then make my guest travel down creepy hallways to get between rooms - or just getting a drink at the bar. See more at...

    So awesome! Well done! May I ask, why the 12th? Mine is on Nov 2nd as I didn't want to compete with other parties the weekend before Halloween (even tho my party will be better, right?) I like the idea of going early to get everyone in the Halloween spirit earlier in the month.

    Everything looks amazing! I think the fx will work great. With the detail you've done on the props, the light is just the icing on the...uh..treasure. I've had great luck with the cheaper lights fx lately - 15 bucks on amazon. I still have some of these cheap lasers that I thought would...

    I'm not sure how they know the weather a month out - I guest that's why the call it a forecast - but this is a bit too close to rain on the 2nd. Love that Halloween will be clear, but we can't have it rain on my Party Haunt.

    Thanks! It's been so hot this week that it's been hard to get motivated to do work. I went out today and got batteries and a headlamp so I can work after dark. Stapling tarp in the dark will help get me back on schedule.

    Zip ties for the win. Never see them in the dark. Love @Engineerchic idea about slowly softening the ground.
  12. So.....has anyone else started to Stress Out, about this years rapidly approaching Halloween?

    General Halloween
    Putting decorations up the night before - That's awesome! I started 3 months ago building in my backyard. Still....not....finished! I'm seriously insane for doing this for a week or two of enjoyment. This photo does not show the side yard (which is 90% complete). However, it's...

    After a week off due to work and traveling for a wedding, we're back at it this weekend. During the week I've been working on the Clown animatronics. I love how the rocking clown's head moves around on its own!

    So far behind schedule, but no stress. I still have 52 days till Halloween. I'm hoping to have all the tarp, electrical and sound done by the 22nd. Final lighting by the 29th. That should give me a few weekends to walk around and enjoy it before its time to take it all down again. Clown...

    General Halloween
    It happens every year. We think we are "far behind" or "didn't get the prop just right". Then the date rolls around and everyone is amazed and congratulates you a job well done. I totally understand the stress. I too feel like other events take me away from my Halloween building, but we...
