  2. Static: Jack-o-Lantern Archway 2018

    Halloween Props
    Hey all, I am new here and I wanted to share with you something that I've built. I am really proud of it. It was a lot of work, but it gets a lot of attention from the neighbors. The archway is built with PVC pipe, tons of personally carved jackos (several store bought as well) and lights...

    Off-Topic Stuff
    My son had his first accident last week (why I've been a little absent). He's fine and all, but I'm now in the market of a new car for 2 teenage boys to be driving... We liked the above aztec for it being AWD for our winters, handling like a car, but being a little bigger in case of said...
  6. This is crazy but... (lighting)

    General Halloween
    I am rewatching Star Trek the Original Series and 80% of the sets is just lighting. I am realizing how much this imprinted on me and how much of my Halloween ambience is created just by mixing coloured lights. I think anyone struggling with lighting mixes could do with a (re)watch and pay...

    Apologies in advance if this topic has been previously covered somewhere in the forum, but I've yet to see it, and have had no results when searching. For anyone interested in well-produced, dark, gothic drama (and-oh-by-the-way, all about long-dormant magic, faerie folk, perceived madness...

  12. How to Attract People

    General Halloween
    So here's my problem. I live at the end of a street in a cul de sac, my house and yard are actually down hill from the drive. My yard is not very visible. Last year, I had maybe 6 trick or treaters come to my door, because frankly the rest of my neighborhood sucks *** at halloween. That...
