  1. WItch Tavern Sign - Need more inspiration and ideas

    General Halloween
    Picked this sign up at a thrift store a while ago. I want to make a witch themed tavern sign but need some inspiration. I'm going for a historical/creepy vibe rather than whimsical. Some ideas I've come up with are: "The Confession House" "Half Hanged Mary" "Oyer and Terminer" I would also...
  2. Would you hand out comics on Halloween?

    General Halloween
    I write scary comics for kids (primarily ages 7 to 12), and I've been giving out copies of my comics on Halloween for years. This year, I'm planning to launch a Kickstarter campaign to fund a much larger print run of small-size, black and white editions. It's my way of testing the waters to...

  4. Static: potion bottle help

    Halloween Props
    hi, i have decided to go back through some of my early made potion bottles and make them look better as they were just bits in bottles with bits in and a label - very basic and i was happy with them a few yrs ago as basic bottles. HOWEVER, i made many more and they look a lot better. Has...

  6. Do You Keep Track of Your Stuff?

    General Halloween
    Once upon a time it was very easy for me to know what I had when it came to Halloween. I only had a handful of things and it all fit in a few totes that go stashed in the basement. Now I've taken over two closets, a large chunk of a bedroom, and a corner of the basement that keeps creeping...
  7. Kinda sad

    Off-Topic Stuff
    I just saw a story on Yahoo https://www.yahoo.com/news/cemetery-bones-tossed-trash-families-034139172.html about a cemetery that was left in disarray. It's so sad but I know it's happening more and more. Frog and I hunt out cemeteries on our travels and those in the card exchanges get a chance...
  8. What do you think of it?

    Off-Topic Stuff
    I recently have an idea to buy a projector enclosure for my Projector the Size is 17.8w x 5.2h x 12.6l for Christmas decoration. I have read up on enclosures from some suppliers Kinytech, Vizbox . Actually I had this idea two months ago, but my wife doesn't agree with me. As you know, after...
  9. Alexa the sound box!

    General Halloween
    Probably no surprise but you can put those mp3 and cd players away, Alexa to the rescue! Have some pc speakers laying around - even better. If you have Amazon prime just ask her to play scary sounds, thunderstorm, or Halloween music. I figured on the Halloween music play list but the scary...
  10. Electronic/Software: Butler Greeter prop

    Halloween Props
    A couple days ago I purchased a 6ft animated Butler Greeter prop 50% off from the AtHome store. https://www.athome.com/butler-greeter/124236783.html When I set it up the audio started stuttering and it stopped working completely. I called the store and they gave me the choice of returning it...

  12. Other: Barnyard nitemares

    Halloween Props
    We opened the haunt to the public last weekend (Friday,Saturday Sunday) for the first time. Some may recall that it was open for a party 2 years ago and then sat last year due to other commitments of the owner. Here's a video taken on Saturday night. This was later in the evening when a couple...
  13. Free graveyard fence - Long Beach CA

    For Sale/Trade By Individuals
    I posted this in the Props forum a couple of days ago. This may be a better place for it... I made a bunch of graveyard fence and ended up having three sections extra. I'll never use it and I can't think of a better use than giving it to someone on this forum. Each section is about 9'. I have...
  14. My party is tomorrow!

    Party Ideas. Experiences and Recipes
    My party is tomorrow and I have so much to do! I started decorating a month ago and only have hanging spider egg sacks in the bathroom. Im going to use red lighting in there as well as spider webs and spiders. I have a sound activated lantern on the sink. Is that enough for the bathroom?
  15. Static: Gravedigger Stabalize

    Halloween Props
    Hey guys, I have a pose and stay skeleton still in the box from a few years ago. I may incorporate him into one of my graves I think. i want him holding a shovel with his foot on it as if he was digging it. What is the best way to stabilize him into the ground for this? What have some of you...
  16. Spooky synthwave playlist for Halloween

    Halloween Music
    Hey guys, I put together a playlist on Spotify a few weeks ago with over 9 hours of hand-picked spooky darksynth music. If you're into synthwave, check it out and let me know what you think! I've had it on heavy rotation just about every day for the past couple of weeks. It'd work really well as...

  18. The Twins

    Halloween Props
    Out of all the props I have bought, I have to admit, LOVE this one. The pictures don't even begin to do them justice. T hey were a huge hit at the get together a couple of weeks ago. Beyond creepy Will post more of the living room later.
  19. Static: Epitaph Wall

    Halloween Props
    So I made this a number of years ago. It will (eventually) span all the way across the porch (hopefully next year) BUT i have a small problem. It's more or less secure across the top, but the bottom flops around in the wind despite a wood frame behind. The screws are also puling away from the...

    Halloween Props
    I got these Reaper busts a few years ago at the Dollar Tree but they haven't had them since. I use them for the top of my small pillars for the cemetery but need a few more. If anyone has any clue where to get them let me know! I thought about casting my own but haven't had the best...
