  1. General Halloween
    I am jumping on the bandwagon to give out small toys with the full size bars this year. I have already collected mini Play-Doh cans, mini stencils & erasers (will get pencils to go with them) and some Hot Wheels. I wanted to put them into little paper treat sacks - the flat "vintage style" (not...
  2. Halloween Props
    I have gotten a hold of a few unique items that I am going to use in building something for my outside displays. In addition, I have quite a collection of string led lights and a lot of tools. Any suggestions that doesn't cost a lot?
  3. Halloween Props
    I love Jack O'Lanterns and I just never have enough! We have a big front yard that needs...subtle, fun haunting for families and young kids. Something magical. I want to create a pumpkin patch of sorts, all full of different faces etc that my kids and I carve. In the past, on a small scale...
  4. General Halloween
    Just watched this on Netflix (finally). I was surprised I couldn't dig up a thread on it here on the forums. I was so excited to see another documentary on haunters... A second chance to maybe show off that we all aren't completely crazy. Nope, it mainly focused on one crazy guy with his...
  5. Wanted to Buy
    I want a single Electric Cracker for next Halloween. I'd like to pay $30 or less shipped, and that would be no issue but every place I have tried wants $15 for shipping. Bringing the cost close to $40. Any suggestions ? Or, more likely, I am just too cheap. But as I would be using it just one...
  6. Party Ideas. Experiences and Recipes
    Just starting to plan our Vampire Funeral theme this year, and I'm wondering... Is it possible to rent a hearse for an evening? I'd love to have this in the driveway when guests arrive, in front of my garage-door-turned-wall-crypt. Have any of you done this? Where do you rent from...a...
  7. Halloween Props
    Hey guys, so I went ahead and ordered 10lbs of the poly beef netting from Trenton Mills. Being in Montreal, I had done a bunch of research to find a supplier north of the border but obviously couldn't. Just FYI, total cost was 41$ + 32$ US for shipping, then I got nailed with 26$ CAN for...
  8. For Sale/Trade By Individuals
    Hi there, Well, I had every intention in the world of building my own Horse Drawn Hearse, but.....have purchased a Real Hearse instead. Yup......I finally found and bought an actual Older Hearse, so I really have no need for any of the parts that I have been collecting for the past year or more...
  9. Halloween Props
    I know we have posted about this in the past. Was doing my Day after shopping and came across this: Yes it is a crouching swaying Ghoul like other have built on here for the past two years and hallowen express now has it. Well i still plan on building my own that will last for years and...
  10. Halloween Props
    I've been wanting to add a big treasure chest to my Pirate's Graveyard display for a long time now but could never find one that was big enough or at a price I was willing to pay so I finally broke down and built one myself. The chest measures 30x24x18 and cost less than $20 in materials...
  11. Halloween Props
    Been out of the Halloween spirit for a few years. This year, just now, I think I'll be back into it. It's too late for 2018 but I'll be back next year. Here is a home made skeleton I made and kept from a few years back. We would put on a haunted house for our town and the cost was $1 or one...

  13. For Sale/Trade By Individuals
    I have another “if you’re in the local area” items for sale that I need to get rid of. Bought from Big Lots last year but never even took it out of the box, so it’s still brand new. Retails for $150, asking $100. Unable to ship, it would just cost too much and wouldn’t be worth it even if...
  14. General Halloween
    Hey all, been a while. I want to get a low cost camera to mount and film the visitors scares at my house this year. Plug in with night vision that records to an SD card is preferred. Anyone got some recommendations? Thanks
  15. Halloween Props
    Hey guys! I wanted to share with you my YouTube page of me building some Tombstones. This IS NOT an attempt to sell stuff. This forum is for DIY'ers and I'm just sharing my work with other DIY'ers. I've been building my own Props for near 20 years now. And it seems year after year, walking into...
  16. Tutorials and Step-By-Step
    This was the final version of the teleporter created for trick-or-treat 2017. The illusion worked well; however, I didn't leave myself enough time to add more "bells and whistles" to the teleporter or to polish the mad scientist skit. As I say in the video, I'm not sure it was worth the time...
  17. For Sale/Trade By Individuals
    OK, I have sorted & taken pics of the extra stuff I have. PM me if you're interested & I can give you a shipping cost. All I'm asking is the actual cost + shipping. I'm in MD so consider that in the shipping cost & time factor. The none of these things are very heavy, even the busts are...
  18. Halloween Props
    Thinking about buying one, but I cannot find a review anywhere. If you have one, was it worth the cost? Thanks!
  19. General Halloween
    We do a small haunt in our yard and garage each year. The number of Trick or Treaters continues to rise each year along with the cost of candy. Last year we had well over 800. Last year we gave out 5 pcs of candy along with a 6" glow stick. We were lucky to find the glow sticks on clearance last...
  20. General Halloween
    Can anyone explain to me why an item on Ebay with an asking price of under $5.00 (a 6" tall candle) costs over $30.00 to ship? It's not coming from the moon! Other items that are on auction for $75.00 cost $25.00 to ship. Others cost far more. There doesn't seem to be any pattern that I can...
