  1. Neighbors who are complete A**holes

    Off-Topic Stuff
    Seems like there's always some complete A**hole in every sub. But why do they always end up being my neighbors? A few years ago we were fortunate to be able to by a house for my daughter while she attended college. It was a nice little house in a huge sub, but still close to campus. Almost...
  2. Unusual Handouts

    General Halloween
    So, candy is the obvious favorite for handing out at Halloween, but I know of an online magic shop with decent prices on all those cheesy gags and jokes from when I was little. Thus, along with candy, we also give out crap like trick squirt lighters; Chinese finger traps; the trusty...
  3. Mechanical: Turned a head turner prop to a Christmas tree oscillator

    Halloween Props
    Thought I'd share a head turner prop which was shortly made into a Christmas tree oscillator. I used a couple of pieces 1/2 threaded pipe, 3/4 PVC, 1' aluminum flat bar, some crap plywood, and a couple of nuts and bolts. The angle wiper motor mounting plate was bought from Frightprops. I'll...
  4. Love hate relationship

    General Halloween
    I am developing a love hate relationship with animatronics.. they charge all the money for them but seems some are crap and some have a little longevity to them but you may only get a few seasons from them. With no parts available you're left scrounging for a used one to pillage for parts at...
  5. Lighting: LED bulbs for Faux Fire?

    Halloween Props
    Hey guys, I'm trying to build my own fake fire for a burning town scene and I'm hung up on the lighting. I have the silk flames and all but every light I try looks like crap. I know the LED's in the commercial cauldrons are very bright and look great but I don't know what lumens they are or...
  6. Storage for Halloween Decor/Props

    General Halloween
    Howdy! Where do most of you store your props and decor? I seriously have thought about asking my husband to help me build a shed outside - he will think I'm bat 'crap' crazy for thinking such. I worry about the Texas heat, however, everything appears okay being stored in the attic - I need...
  7. Kid Friendly Window Projections

    General Halloween
    So my 5 year old accidentally saw a clip of AtmosFearFX projections and did not think it was very cool, I don't want to scare the crap out of my neighbors kids either. Are there any 'happy haunts' projections?

    General Halloween

  9. Have you ever had a prop broken by TOTS?

    General Halloween
    Like one of your animated props jumps out at them and they react by kicking the crap out of it. I'm always worried this day might come lol :o
  10. Questions about Halloween Horror Nights...

    General Halloween
    to those who have been in years past. 1. When do HHN tickets usually go on sale? 2. How quickly do they sell out? 3. Is the "vacation packages" a good deal? or is purchasing the tickets and hotel individually usually cheaper? (I already have a hotel booked for 68.00 per night.) I'm trying to...
  11. Wild Weather Coming!

    General Halloween
    Dang it, we're supposed to have 50+ mph wind gusts here in the DC area through the day... Just brought in a lot of the crap I'd just put out! As Charlie Brown would say, "ARGH!"
  12. Atmosphere Effects: Projection video

    Halloween Props
    This is a short video I threw together just for fun. I'm going to be plugging this into my window projection montage, along with Ghostly Apparitions and some other stuff. It's as low-tech and simple as it gets; a pair of green monster eyes that float out of the darkness, up to the camera, and...
