  2. Fog: Is a decent DIY fogger possible?

    Halloween Props
    I've been reading a lot of forum and blog posts (across many sites) that are all variations on the theme of heating a glycerine and water mixture to create fog. In my tests over a small flame, I got very little fog from such a mixture until all of the water had evaporated, and then the heated...
  3. In search of haunting cd for witch burning

    Halloween Music
    For this years display, I want music. Trouble is finding something that is both haunting and interesting. The set will be two-fold. I have a witch burning at the stake and I also want three witches doing incantations above a cauldron on my balcony. So I really like the Romanian chant from...

  5. Fireplace Flames

    Halloween Props
    I'm building a styrofoam fireplace and would like to run a video of fire burning on a HDTV sitting behind it. I went on youtube and there are lots of videos with pretty crackling fire and burning embers but none that are "spooky" enough. By spooky I mean there must be videos of fire with...
  6. Burn distressing

    Halloween Costume Ideas
    Distressing and Mask Issues So I have this wonderful silicon mask and a dress. I am going as an old china doll. But I want to add a little more makeup and maybe some strands of hair to the mask. Makeup should be easy, just regular stuff right, it doesn't have to be any more permanent that...
  7. Lighting: Is it safe

    Halloween Props
    I see on Youtube that people get a random flickering light effect from splicing an FS2 florescent starter into a light circuit. Has anyone done this consistently without problems? Like burning the house down etc. I saw a video somewhere that I thought showed a special bulb that just screwed into...
  8. Hogfather! Who's seen it?

    General Halloween
    One of our favorite movies to watch this time of year is Hogfather. It is a great adaptation of Terry Pratchett's book of the same name. If you've never seen or heard of it, I beg you, watch it! I think of it every Reaper, I'm thinking of burning a dvd to give to my next victim. ;) :cool: If...

  11. Witch Hunt Party 2015

    Party Ideas. Experiences and Recipes
    So, my daughter has decided she wanted to base this year's party on the Salem Witch Trials. Since that is just too specific, I decided we will do witch hunts in general, using references from medieval times as well as Salem. To start with, we're going to do a Clue-type mystery scavenger hunt...

    I have the standard 1AMP motor you find on EBAY. I have to replace them every year. I have about a 200 ft run with three garage door pulleys sitting on bolts...they spin freely and fairly efforrlessly. The motor has a small vBelt to the first pulley and the whole thing is controlled by a AC...
  13. Fog: Fog Machine Giving off Burning Smell

    Halloween Props
    Back in 2009 (or 2010 -- I can't remember exactly), I had purchased a couple of fog machines and used them for Halloween that year. After Halloween, I boxed them back up and haven't had an opportunity to use them again until this year. I set one up, filled it with juice, then plugged it in and...
  14. Fog: Need Information On Mist Makers

    Halloween Props
    I have been searching the forum and found old dated information that does not give me conclusive answers. So I will start one! If you are familiar with the Burning Coals prop, I am planning on using that method but want to couple it with some type of fog. This prop will be made for my office...
