  1. Candy factory conveyor belt help

    Halloween Props
    Two conveyor belts. The joint being in the machine. So one going in is the “good” side, the other is the “bad” side. Just make sure they are timed correctly so it looks like a continuous belt. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. SCAM SITE: Has anyone bought from NWMST?

    Merchant Reviews
    I figured it was a fraud, but I was willing to risk the money to see how the scam worked. Curiosity.. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. SCAM SITE: Has anyone bought from NWMST?

    Merchant Reviews
    Same thing happened as others, tracking number given and showed delivered but nothing showed up. But I have figured out their scam.. It’s based of two things, one is that USPS tracking only shows the destination city and zip code to the public. The other is using some Chinese transfer company...

    Update today, saw in USPS tracking: “Your item departed our USPS facility in SAN FRANCISCO CA NETWORK DISTRIBUTION CENTER on November 12, 2019 at 5:56 am. The item is currently in transit to the destination.” So promising.. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    I did get a response with a tracking number, but like usual, USPS shows only that the label was generated. So who knows.. have a few weeks before the statute on the case runs out with PayPal. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Lol, yah, I was just going to open a claim today as well. Now it’s a race to see who gets theirs closed first! At least with using PayPal it gave us a chance to test it out. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Trick-r-Treaters: More or Fewer Over the Years?

    General Halloween
    What part of town are you? We’re NE in the Sabin area, but usually only get 20-30 at best. We didn’t make it up to Alameda Ridge this year but it’s usually bonkers compared to our street. But then again our street is the hipster through way to Alberta Street... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. What was the last HORROR movie you watched?

    Horror Discussion
    I just rewatched Silent Hill. That movie’s atmosphere and effects are just spot on. The nurses still get me.. And how much practical effects were used. Not to mention the town with the ash falling. Then the first time the siren sounds and everything starts peeling away. Sent from my...

  10. Now that the dust has settled, how many hours did you put into your Halloween scene this year?

    General Halloween
    I just enjoy walking around and seeing what people built. Even if someone just bought a couple blow up decorations and strung fake web everywhere, at least it’s something. They’re getting in the holiday spirit, regardless of the amount of time. The way I think of it, is it may take one person...

    Lol, I’m really not looking forward to moving the barrel off the front porch. It’s crazy how heavy they are EMPTY! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Funny because it was such a simple effect, but everyone loved it. It’s definitely something I’d do again next year. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  14. Now that the dust has settled, how many hours did you put into your Halloween scene this year?

    I learned this from racing cars, if it’s a hobby don’t ever, EVER track hours spent. You’ll just hate yourself eventually and wonder why you do it. It’ll become a job then. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. 2019 Halloween Lessons Learned

    General Halloween
    I used to work in nightclubs as a DJ, and I will say, with fog machines you get what you pay for. The DMX or ones that allow linking, are best. For one club I worked at, we did use cheaper ones that I tried to bus the controllers together, but eventually, the control board fried. Though I will...
  16. 2019 Halloween Lessons Learned

    General Halloween
    Lesson I learned: I’m done building my own costume. I’ll try stuff on for fitting but I’m done with figuring out my own costume. This years was a bust and never was fully realized (Hatbox ghost) because all my focus and effort was on the decorations and props for the Halloween party and ToTs...
  17. Barrels for Pirate Haunts

    Halloween Props
    I just bought one from NextDoor last week for $40. Guy had a bunch of actual used wine barrels. Still smells of wine.. In fact that’s the thing to watch out for, whatever was kept in them originally will have seeped into the wood. The wine smell does help the pirate illusion, but probably...

    This evening.. (Fog machine not on) Inside we did some of our usual decorations, webs and skulls everywhere, the dining was Nightmare Before Christmas themed (though I fried Jack voltage regulator this year using the wrong power supply) Also added an AtmosFearFX projection upstairs during...

    Now for some pics.. my wife and I finally agreed this year that we are focusing solely on Halloween and are just going all in with decorations and going to thin out the Christmas stuff to make room. So long Santa!! Here’s some daylight pics, the columns I made this year, and the scarecrow...

    Member Introduction
    Been checking on this site for the past month (or two) for ideas and finally decided to say hi. We just had our annual Halloween party this last Saturday and are gearing up for the big trick or treating night; sadly we usually only get a handle full of ToTers since nobody else on our block...
