  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.

    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...

    Whoo Hoo! We're in October! My schedule has Oct 1 as "build and decoration complete" - HA! Not even close. The event isn't until Nov 2nd so I technically have a full month (I don't get many ToT's) - but we'll be done in the next two weeks. Here are few photos tonight of some rooms, Big...

    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.
  10. 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...
  13. So.....has anyone else started to Stress Out, about this years rapidly approaching Halloween?

    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...
  14. Fake swamp?

    Halloween Props
    I made a vortex fog chiller (and powered fan to push it out) and used Froggy's swamp juice. Three green flood lights were placed under the deck and bridge over the swamp. It worked well, but the wind kicked up and kept emptying the swamp. If I had to do it again, I would create a border box...

    Some progress on the Big Top room. I used a mix of flats from last years haunt and painted a base coat white. Added the red stripes and tried to make it look a bit messy. Added the roof trusses. Black tarp for the roof to keep the majority of the rain out. Next is to dirty and bloody the...

    A lot of progress as the fortune teller room takes shape. I used the deck from my 2017 swamp for the raised platform which is to be the traveling Gypsy tent. The flats were from the 2018 surgery room from the Asylum party. A quick paint job and 4m tarp for the roof. Final touches will...

    Halloween Props
    Looks like I'm going the cheap route this year - going to get some white masks and spray them with fluorescent spray paint. May not be a big WOW factor, but it will work. Man, I am going to miss these props when they all break.

    Halloween Props
    I love these props. Mine are starting to break and I had no idea these type of wall hangings would be so hard to find. Anyone see anything else like them recently? Halloween Connection has a few of them, but I'm looking for something like the Agony Scream shown below in glow in the dark...
