  2. Static: Bad moon on the bayou

    Halloween Props
    Sorry all, I could not figure out how to rotate the pics. :( This year, my wife challenged me to create a theme based on a swamp or bayou. I started with some old fence panels turned on their side and attached. I added a porch of pallets and cut one pallet in half to create a dock. The...

    Well guys, 2015's party has come and gone. The Carnival of Carnage was a success in its own right. The night was unlike what I had planned but I learned alot in my first haunt/party.

  9. Static: Bayou shack WIP

    Halloween Props
    Might not look like much yet, but hopefully with a roof and porch, this'll resemble an old shack on the bayou. This is 2 panels that'll be bolted together and, as soon as I figure out how, the roof and "porch" will also just bolt together so it can be stored in the off season. Specs are 5'x8'...
  10. Old commercial fishing net wanted

    Wanted to Buy
    We're doing a swamp-themed party at our small theatre this year. Our ceilings are really high so we were thinking about doing a "drop ceiling" out of old commercial fishing net (the more degraded the better). I'm on the east coast and have put "wanted" ads on Craigslist in the two closest port...
  11. I need help!

    General Halloween
    I want to do a swamp theme. I saw these online and thought it would be a good start. But does anyone know how to make them? I was thinking a stick from outside but a clear coat of paint (to act as a glue) then to sprinkle the "moss" on. Then add the lantern.
