    I know this topic has been beaten to death.....but I am trying to do something slightly different. Maybe some of you with extensive knowledge on airflow and pipe sizing may help. I have a chauvet 1600 fogger, plenty of fog, and good velocity coming out. I would like to create a grid system in...

    Hi, I'm looking to set a Jack O Lantern scene like the one at Haunted Mansion. Do you have recommendations on where to get them? Ebay seem a little spendy. Thanks.
  3. Halloween Props
    I'm new to making custom props and am wondering just how much I should expect to spend for simple pop-up props, like trash can trauma or some other pop-up props complete with sound and lights. Is $100 per prop about right? Is arduino the way to go? Also, for air cylinders, do diy pvc cylinders...

    I live in MN where school doesn't start until after Labor Day. That means stores just put out Halloween stuff last week. I feel like the amount of Halloween decorations (specifically for outdoors) has been on the decline the last couple years. My city doesn't not have a Spirit Halloween this...

    All came from garage sales this weekend It was a blow moldapalooza out there and I dont generally use them in my display much. I guess I'll have to start a blow mold area now.

    Should I blow up or deflate inflatables during snow/ice/sleet? Obviously, I wouldn't turn them on in bad weather (wind). What I'm thinking is if they are not blown up with inches of snow or sleet coming down then they could be covered in heavy snow or ice and wouldn't blow up at all at night...

    Hey all, So I ended up turning my front lawn into a "mini pumpkin patch" of sorts using around 30 blow molds from my collection. I had set this up a couple weeks before Halloween and had even sprayed each pumpkin down with some 303 UV Protectant Spray before and during the time the pumpkins...

    Forecast 70-80% during the day and dwindling to 40% by 8pm for us...... just isn't fair. :rolleyes: Hopefully it'll blow thru early.
  9. Halloween Props
    Hey all, so I have a humble collection of blow molds and my idea for a halloween haunt this year will be to have all the ones shown in the picture outside in the front lawn for a makeshift pumpkin patch of sorts. I'll have hale bays, tombstones, some fencing I built and other things out there...
  10. Member Introduction
    Hi everyone. I have been lurking on this forum for the past year or so. I figured it was finally time to jump in and make a profile. This forum really helped me round out my little display. Our display started with one giant blow up Dragon a few years ago. It has since grown into two large blow...

    Was attempting to repaint one that had faded with some Rust-Oleum paint/primer spray for plastics that I picked up from Home Depot. The blow mold pumpkin I was working on turned out looking really good but the paint tends to scratch or flake off somewhat easily. Any better ideas/advice out...

    I was at the Dollar Tree today, and found these awesome blow up eyes. They are $1 a piece and have the blow tube and writing on the front :( Other than that, they're perfect! So, with the eyes and a red t-shirt... I present "Proof of Concept"

    We bought a 15 foot ghost in 2013 and we used it that year and in 2014. Last year when we put it up the 2nd motor ( there are 2 in it) wasnt working and we cleaned it but it still wouldnt go so the 15 foot ghost will not blow up. We love the look of this in our haunt and its big and has a nice...

    Being the new ghoul on the block, I'm curious about the blow mold pumpkin pails & display characters! I found two "newer" pails at Value Village tonight but was hoping for some oldies! Do many of you guys collect them? Have any pictures? I'd love to see everyone's collection! :cool:
