  1. Haunters nearby you?

    General Halloween
    Hey all. Just curious, have any of your neighbors started decorating “big” after you started, or after you moved in? I’m sure some of you are lucky enough to live on the same block as other haunters, but I’m curious if anyone here has inspired another nearby to start their own excessive...
  2. Is my Antari SP-35A pump missing check valve?

    Halloween Props
    Hello All, Not sure if this is the right place to post, but seemed to fit best. I've picked up an Antari ICE 100 low ground fog machine and the pump works, but is the devil to get primed and once it does, it doesn't look like it has the flow it should. I've completely cleaned the heater block...

I built a sunken pirate ship bow a few...
  6. Fog: At Wits End.

    Halloween Props
    Grrr ... I'm about to kick my Chauvet 1050 to the curb. The dreaded clogged heater block. The original problem was it ran dry on the very first use. YEAH. Ecch, what a mess. So I replaced my pump, now retired, with an Antari SP-35a, a superior pump. At first I was worried that it was a...
  7. Static: Help with skeleton wedding seating?

    Halloween Props
    We decided to go with a wedding theme, due to our original theme being too time consuming/budget busting to do properly. Looking for suggestions on seating for the wedding guests - something that won't cost a ton and is waterproof. If the wedding is in a graveyard, they could sit on...
