    Halloween Props
    Sorry for the last minute, super specific issue, but.... I have a 3rd stall*** I'd like to project on to from behind. It will be cleaner and safer to back project than to put the projector out on the drive way. I am looking for a cheap and super easy way to set this up tonight. The door area...

  6. Static: Question about size of mausoleum for FCG?

    Halloween Props
    I am already planning builds for next Halloween and one of the things I would like to build is a mausoleum with a flying crank ghost. My question is what is a good size for a FCG mausoleum? I was thinking of a 4' deep by 5' wide that would have a 3' wide door on one of the 5' sides. Would that...

    Halloween Props
    It's been raining nonstop here for weeks, now, and I'm so far behind it's just sad at this point. However, I thought if nothing else, I could get my giant fire dragon set up on the porch and hopefully that would build some momentum. ...except I can't get his dadgummed frakkin' lakkin' head to...
  11. OBELISK build file!

    Tutorials and Step-By-Step
    So we've lost quite a few aggregate prop build sites in the last decade, and some projects that were mainstays of the home haunter are disappearing from the web, including one of the best foam tombstone obelisk builds most of us have come across. But it was rescued from obscurity by the...

  17. Other: Halloween 2018: Revenant Manor Build

    Halloween Props
    I've been experiencing some issues when trying to create / update albums on the forum this year, so I figured instead of creating a build album this year, I might try a post instead. For 2018 to this point, we've added a new haunt sign, mausoleum, vine lanterns, and the 'witching well'. All...

    Halloween Props
    Hi everyone, for my first post (long time silent observer) I wanted to share the tail end of my hearse build. Now, first thing's first: I needed wheels. Because there was no way I was going to attempt this without having the coach wheels ready to go. So I found mine at a few different At Home...
  20. Static: Pallet Pumpkin

    Halloween Props
    This pallet wood pumpkin project was so easy to do from start to finish. It started with the last pallet wood I had disassembled last year. Then I scavenged from the kids craft paint stash. Some dry brushing the paint on and swiping it off and it was done in time for the little trick or...
