  1. Halloween Props
    This year's theme is Medieval/Castle/vikings. I am thinking a turret castle with a drawbridge for my entrance. I have a big old barn where I hold my party and build the appropriate theme entrance where guest walk in. Does anyone have pictures of things they have done for inspiration? My height...
  2. General Halloween
    Hello All.... Here is the video of our yard display for this year. Everything hand made. Theme went over really well. Lots of people commented that they wanted to go home and play Mario Bros. Enjoy! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=II_jRmI1_cI
  3. General Halloween
    We are doing a medieval theme this year and could really use some suggestions. Does anyone know of a link to past displays done with this theme? The Home Depot dragons rather made our theme decision, so I am trying to build around that. Plan to do the garage as the Great Hall of the castle and...

    Hello Everyone. Does anyone have ideas of how to create an inexpensive lava river/moat other than expanding foam and orange lights? We are doing Mario Bros and wanted a stream of lava around Bowser's castle. Thanks!

    This is not my house, it's about an hour away from me but I had to post some pics because it's so amazing. The owner is a carpenter by trade and he is an unbelievable craftsman. He built the entire facade, columns, fence, and chair completely out of wood and painted the stone finish. It is by...
  6. Halloween Props
    This is my first Halloween in my own house, and I want to go big. Since I have a bunch of medieval armor already, I figured I should make my home's front deck look like the battlements of a castle. But in researching for it, I've come to the conclusion that I need some advice. And since I kept...

    Hey everyone. I'm Chad and I write a website called the HorrorMovieBBQ.com, a pop culture site. I'm planning on doing a tribute to Count Chocula for Halloween and I'm wondering if anyone has the zip/rar of the promotional cd called "Spooky Sounds From Count Chocula Castle". I've already got the...

    I've decided to do a Haunted Castle Theme this year! It is my first year in my own brand new house (finished building April 1st 2017) and will be my first party in 2 years! I picked this theme for two reasons... 1st, almost anything can be in a haunted castle and I want to use most of my...

    I can't seem to find any reference to this inflatable castle anywhere online. Anyone have suggestions on where to look or ideas on it's history? The tag says Gemmy, it also says Tao Hsien toys. There's also a # 28794-81. It's awesome, the middle is animated, turning showing a ghost on one...

    Hi, everybody. Long time lurker, first time thread creator. I thought I'd share an idea of mine that seems to have taken on a life of its own, but if the finished product looks anything like the vision I have in my head, this will be awesome. I've often looked in awe at a lot of the yard...

    Hi, I am a new member to the forum although I have read it for the last couple years, I love all of your ideas and have used some myself. I am wanting to up my level this year and try to do a pirate ship attacking a castle (like Port Royal). I can't figure out the best way to turn the front of...
  18. Halloween Props
    I have to admit, we've been slacking the past few Halloweens. Couple years underemplyed, starting a new job, blah blah blah will do it to you I guess. Time to get back into the swing of things.. So here is this year's 1 month build. (Since I'm starting first week in September. I've gathered my...
  19. Halloween Props
    The plan is to box in my open porch area with these panels flanking the steps. I'll connect the two with a quarter panel portcullis, all of which done with foam brick work. Finally done, sorry for a couple of the photos, I did my best, but no matter what I do with the photos here, they upload...
  20. Halloween Props
    Another creation from my crypt- a rusty old portcullis which would be right at home in an old Vincent Price, Poe flick. Just some halved 2x4s and some old 1/4 inch plywood I had lying around, cut into strips. Plastic fence finials and the 'rivets' are a dowel rounded at the end on a grinder, cut...
