    General Halloween
    So, I have been having more and more issues with people walking through the yard display to get pictures either with props or in my yard. If I had a section for that it's ok, and we will usually have one or two props easily accessible for this reason. However its getting worse over the years...
  7. Prop Showcase: Beef Netting-Tips and Tricks & How much do I need?

    Halloween Props
    People have asked how far beef netting goes. Here's my experience: Slit tube on one side so you're working with a flat layer The bigger the holes, the larger area it covers (and better it looks) It's easier to cut when stretched very tight and cut with sharp scissors (not Xacto knife) Better to...

  9. Other: Scarabelle Clown Puppet

    Halloween Props
    Time out for some humor re: "It looked a lot bigger in the photo." I found a deal on the Scarabelle Clown Puppet and while waiting for delivery I fetched a wiper motor from storage and was preparing to make a beefy crank ghost type frame to animate the life size clown puppet. Opps. My bad. I...

  15. Anybody Else at a Standstill Due to Hot with a Chance of Scorch?

    General Halloween
    I am getting NOTHING done. Other than a few small repairs, it's been too hot to get to and work on my larger props. Ordinarily, I would open the garage door to work on some bigger projects or tackle paint work in the driveway. But in this heat, it would only defeat the house AC. Anybody else...

  20. Atmosphere Effects: The Million Dollar Question, but for well under $100

    Halloween Props
    I think we all know, you get what you pay for. At least in most cases, including consumer electronics. However, I can't really justify paying several hundred dollars for a video projector just to put a spook in my window for Halloween. Which is to say, I can't think of a rational argument to...
