    Hi All, My wife and I are doing our bit to support Halloween in Australia, we've only been doing it the last couple of years and decorated for the first time 2 years ago, looking at going bigger and better this year. In the past it's been predominantly spiders and webbing to the point...
  3. What is this strange obsession?!

    Member Introduction
    Hey there, Kaz here from Melbourne Australia. Have done a variety of parties over the years, but last year was our first bigger public trick or treat haunt. We had a zombie scare area, a blood room, a witches corridor and a child friendly glow in the dark radiation zone. Turns out more...
  4. Lighting: Thunder & Lightning Machine - in Australia (240v)?

    Halloween Props
    Hi everyone, I've left my Halloween preparations late this year (thanks, life) but I'm really hoping to finally get a good solution for a thunder and lightning machine. Every year I spend hours searching the internet, and every year I give up in dismay. I'd like a thunder & lightning machine...
  5. Ghostly Betty Boop

    Halloween Costume Ideas
    I am trying to put together a Flapper/Gatsby style Betty Boop costume. So far I have had not much luck finding a dress similar to hers inside Australia, or a reasonable price to ship to Australia. But I did find 2 dresses I love and I think could work. Also, I was thinking of Painting...
  6. 2018 Australia Halloween

    General Halloween
    I thought I might start a thread for this year, even thought it is early, we don't usually get stuff until August in Australia. This way can compile a list of what shops are stocking and websites are shipping to Australia. Places I know of in South Australia: Savers (the best I have found in...

    Member Introduction
    Hi everyone! Long time lurker - finally decided to log in :-) Living in Australia makes Halloween a bit different as we are starting to come into longer, warmer days by the end of October, but we still do our best to set up a yard haunt. I'm also involved with a charity Halloween event at a...

  10. Harry Potter Halloween 2017- Hogwarts

    General Halloween
    Hi all! First time posting. Had a Harry Potter Hogwarts theme for my Halloween party this year, really happy with how it turned out. Held it at a friends house, which limits what I can do. I would like to make bigger props and go for a more immersive party but it was still fun. It was really...

    Halloween Props
    Hi all, Just wanted to start this thread to share some of the props I've been making this year. Apart from the "spooky trees" and foam boards for my windows from 2016, this is the first time I've really had a go at making my own props so I'm always looking for advice or tips on what/how to do...

    Member Introduction
    Hi. I have been meaning to join up in here for a long time. My husband has been a member for several years now - Edgar Whelp is his name, but he is a bit of a recluse so doesn't post often... I on the other hand am very extroverted so you'll see me around a bit I'm sure :) We are Australians...

    Member Introduction
    Hello, I've been visiting this forum for years for help and inspiration, and thought it was about time I joined!

    Member Introduction
    Hi everyone, I'm Rob from Australia and I've been a huge Halloween fan. I thought I'd start up a Halloween Haunted House in my garage. Now 2 years on it's become a huge success, serving over 600ppl in the 4 hours we are open, which I think is great, especially here in Australia where Halloween...

  20. My little Maze - 2015

    General Halloween
    Hi guys, just thought I'd post a short video of my maze from this year. Had mostly everything working in time for Halloween (although I did work on it for two days straight in the lead up). Video is a bit dark and I only have a very small space to work with, but you get the idea :)...
