  1. Escape the Black Widow - SUGGESTIONS PLEASE!

    Party Ideas. Experiences and Recipes
    Two years ago I did an Escape Room in my basement. It was a hit, but I didn't get to enjoy the party because I kept having to go reset the room. Soooo, last year I did a variation. Each guest who wanted to participate was the victim for a designated amount of time. During this time the other...
  2. Wanted: Spirit Halloween Zombie Cowboy Static Prop

    Wanted to Buy
    Hi everyone, I am searching for the 6-foot Zombie Cowboy prop sold at Spirit Halloween in 2007. He is a life-size static prop with red light-up eyes, and he is a latex skeletal zombie dressed like a cowboy (See picture below).

  3. Three Rotten Coffins

    For Sale/Trade By Individuals
    From Spirit Halloween. Static prop. In their boxes, never opened, but the boxes have significant wear as they had clearly been kicking around Spirit for years. Bought 2 or 3 years ago at a single location. $40 each + shipping (which could be reasonably significant), or best offer. Take one...

  5. Boo's from Chicago.

    Member Introduction
    As if Chicago is not scary enough...... I have been into making custom props over the years with varied success. I've built a number of large props where most have sold. The largest I built was a shed sized mausoleum that sadly, did not sell. It was repurposed into several other projects so...
  6. Halloween Vandalism

    General Halloween
    Our neighborhood has been targeted by car prowlers since late last year, and now they- or another group- have incorporated Halloween vandalism, mostly stealing pumpkins off porches (and driving them a couple miles away to smash them :S), but also messing with people's props- so far, no reports...
  7. Extreme inflatables displayers- power question

    General Halloween
    I've never been a big fan of inflatables and for years refused to use them. But, I got one a couple years ago and worked it into my setup and I like it. I've always had a desire to do a full walk around the backyard haunt and now it occurs to me that I can easily accomplish this with...
  8. Fog: Is a decent DIY fogger possible?

    Halloween Props
    I've been reading a lot of forum and blog posts (across many sites) that are all variations on the theme of heating a glycerine and water mixture to create fog. In my tests over a small flame, I got very little fog from such a mixture until all of the water had evaporated, and then the heated...
  9. Graveyard pillars question...

    General Halloween
    Hey all. I have a question for those of you who have sizeable pillars for your graveyard gate/fencing. I saw a somewhat similar thread from a couple years ago regarding coffins, but I'm looking for more substantive solutions because I'm not setting up a week before Halloween to prevent the dead...

    Off-Topic Stuff
    Talia's in the Chinese immersion program at school. Which is fine. Today is Chinese new years, and they're doing a big celebration tonight. 2 days ago they told us the girls all had to wear red. Savers saved me there. Today, they are informing us they want all their hair in a bun...

    Halloween Props
    So every year I struggle with getting fog around the yard. Here's my setup. Now I know why I'm only getting fog in one place (I only have one hose) but I wanted to see how others were tackling this problem. I have 2 foggers going into one chiller and they were both set up on timers so they...
