  2. Is something wrong with the Notifier emails?

    Site Issues and Feedback
    Hi all, I used to get emails faithfully about any post I made or any that I contributed to. It was great. However, during the last two weeks, they have disappeared. I know that there are things being posted, because I added a new request for help out there, and I have to return to see who has...
  3. Electronic/Software: Sparking Props

    Halloween Props
    I made a prosthetic claw out of foam for a zombie walk and now I wish to make it better. I want sparks when the claw ends touch. Fright Props used to sell "Spark Gloves" that were battery operated and safe for user and others. Unfortunately they don't sell those anymore and I can't find any...
  4. Failing Store Bought Props

    General Halloween
    Seems like as time goes on, I'm having more and more of my store bought props starting to fail. Mostly not lighting up, not moving or activating properly. One of my fave props, a Nosferatu-like hanging bat, went out right after the first season I bought him. I still hang him up, but I hate that...

  9. Hooded skull from CVS

    Wanted to Buy
    This is just a shot in the dark but here goes. This youtube video from 2013 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gtT9X8L5YDQ shows a skull that lights up from CVS. It's really cool looking but I doubt I can find it anymore. Just wondering if anybody has one or maybe knows the manufacturer. I would...

  14. Mechanical: Rocking Moldy Mommy

    Halloween Props
    Two part post! My local Halloween store is downsizing because, as they put it, "No one has the money to buy the big props anymore, and although my dream was always to entertain while selling Halloween, we can't afford to do it anymore." They said people coming into the store, pricing stuff out...
  15. My little rant

    General Halloween
    After much decision I have decided what I receive from all my efforts is not what I get in return. After 13 years of haunting (lucky number), I am taking a break from a big yard display. The countless hours for maybe a hundred TOTs just isn't worth it anymore. At my best I was getting 300-400 a...
