    That gateway arch is epic!
  2. Share photos of your outdoor decorations 🎃

    General Halloween
    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
  3. Which wench? Motor, that is

    Halloween Props
    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...

    Too true! Thanks for the correction.
  5. Which wench? Motor, that is

    Halloween Props
    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. Prop Showcase: Our 2018 haunt so far - Pirates!

    Halloween Props
    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!

    We're still in the process of putting out a few props each day, but here's what's out so far. I'll post an update this weekend when we put up more fun stuff! Our theme sign Our door surround Our giant crab in day and under black spot lights And our partial pirate ship The...
  9. Static: In need of experienced advice on plastic skeletons and heat guns!

    I use this picture hanging wire from Lowes. Super cheap and lots of it!
  10. Static: Jack-O-Lantern display

    Halloween Props
    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!
  11. Static: In need of experienced advice on plastic skeletons and heat guns!

    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...
  12. Static: Lighting a BUNCH of pumpkins?

    Halloween Props
    *CRINGE* You mean I'll have to go into that hellish red and green aisle?!!! The horror! :-) Thanks for the tips!
  13. Static: Lighting a BUNCH of pumpkins?

    Shabang!!!!! JW Halloween, I had no idea that they made them with a remote! What a great find. Thanks!
  14. Static: Lighting a BUNCH of pumpkins?

    Halloween Props
    I want to put about 20 carved foam pumpkins on the stairs in front of our house but I don't want to mess with turning on and off those little battery powered puck lights in each and every one every night for a month. In the past, I've put a string of tiny orange lights in a mason jar inside each...
  15. MY Halloween Windows RUiNED

    General Halloween
    Two hopes for you Bipoltergeist: 1) they find the cretins who did it. and 2) that your neighbors are supportive and helpful and that their actions will create good feelings that will replace the yucky angry ones the vandalism must have caused. We've never had vandalism on this level but a few...
  16. Can I share a feel good story?

    General Halloween
    This is exactly what keeps me going. For the past three years we've received an anonymous "fan" card in our mailbox. Someone who doesn't want to identify herself just writes a lovely note to say that she loves our display and that she's our biggest fan. The first one made me tear up! So moving...

    Halloween Props
    I love it! Those teeth are epic!
  18. Static: Alien Face hugger prop

    Halloween Props
    That's so cool!!! I LOVE LOVE Xenomorphs! We did an alien theme two years ago and I made several xenomorphs including about a dozen facehuggers. I even posted an Instructable on how to make them. Not nearly as fancy as yours, but not bad for about $3 of material. Tutorial is here if anyone is...
  19. Static: Ideas for life size Lego minifig head?

    Halloween Props
    My approach would be to blow up a Pepakura model of a lego fig, make it from cardboard, and cover with paper mache sealed with wood glue or exterior latex. I've used this method to build tons of big simple figures. Possibilities are endless :-)
  20. Other: Foam storage?

    Halloween Props
    Matrixmom: Good to be back. I had some tech issues with the forum and my browser. It kept autoforwarding and crashing. Finally figured out the problem :-) I used old laundry baskets to hold scrap for a while. I simply hold on to too much for them to work now. I have a foam problem. LOL I got...
