  1. Ever Feel Like...?

    General Halloween
    I feel this way every year, and every year I swear I’ll start earlier and be finished building before Fall hits. But then life gets in the way, time flies, and BAM, it’s summer. For this coming year, I’m making my two oldest sons hold me accountable. They want to build some props for next year...

  5. Has anyone Painted their own Light Bulbs, for Effect?

    General Halloween
    I’m using gels in a lot of my lighting this year. I love the nearly limitless variety of colors available.
  6. Ghost Bouquet Help?

    Halloween Props
    I think the roses you posted are a perfect base bouquet! When I need to fade and dust something up a bit, I use an extremely light, barely there dusting of flat, off-white and light grey spray paint. The trick is to just get that dusting without actually painting the flowers grey and off-white...

    Yes. That’s Frosty, based on a Frost Dragon from Skyrim. He hangs out in the castle as a prop, but he’s also a puppet/costume. I had never made anything like it before, so it took three years of trial and error to get right, and I’ll do most of it differently for the next one, but he’s like my...
  10. Prop Showcase: What Are You Making this Year?

    Halloween Props
    Thank you so much!! There’s a healthy coat of monster mud (I make my own version with foundation coating in place of joint compound to make it weatherproof) on the castle to make it look more solid and the plywood on the towers is a little thicker than the rest. The peices on top of the towers...
  11. Prop Showcase: What Are You Making this Year?

    Halloween Props
    Thank you! The facades are just thin plywood over a 1x4 frame to keep them on the light side. The details are carved foam added on top of the plywood. The window on Geppetto’s shop is all framed out on the backside, but the windows on my castle aren’t. I just caulked the trim onto the plywood on...
  12. Why are Fire and ice lights so hard to find now?

    Halloween Props
    I picked up a couple at Menards last year. I haven’t looked around this year yet.
  13. Corn Stalks?

    Halloween Props
    We always get ours at Menards or at various pumpkin patches, but it would definitely add up since you need a lot. Driving around and asking farmers might not be a bad idea. You never know.
  14. Static: Finally got off my lazy butt and started making new props

    Halloween Props
    These are amazing!! I love, love, love all the attention to detail!
  15. Prop Showcase: What Are You Making this Year?

    Halloween Props
    I did a castle facade on my garage last year. For this year, I’m working on a Diagon Alley inspired village facade for the rest of my house. My haunt is fairytale themed, so the “shops” will veer in that direction. I’m just finishing up Geppetto’s shop and starting on the Mad Hatter’s next.
  16. Human Puppet

    Halloween Props
    Wow! That is truly the stuff of nightmares! Well done!!

    Hi there! I’m a long time member, but I haven’t been active on here in ages. I just randomly started getting email notifications from the site, and I was like, “Hey! I miss that place!” Anyway, so I hope you all will have me back. I’m from Grand Rapids, Michigan and I’ve been doing a...

  20. The Haunting of Storybook Hollow 2011 haunt video, I hope you like it....

    General Halloween
    Thank you so much, everyone!! We have a lot of fun with it! To answer a few questions: Everything is either monster mud, carved from foam, built of wood and recycled building materials, or a combination. I do everything with the help of my husband and three kids, we work on it a little here...
