  1. Halloween Props
    I grew up watching Sci-fi and Horror. Over the years I have seen so many uses for a severed head. I've always wanted to make one of my head! I have so many different props I would like to make with it! The one that really stands out is and android head. In Star Trek The Next Generation they...
  2. Halloween Props
    I am hosting a "funeral home" themed party this year and I typically decorate each room in the house as though it is part of a haunted house walk-through. I am hoping to convert the whole kitchen into a morgue/embalming room. It really would be cool to make the entire room flicker with a...
  3. Halloween Props
    Greetings everybody Who said that easter doesn`t have to do anything with halloween? Okay both is on different times but you can play with it a bit couldn`t you. I came up with the idea in 2014 by thinking what I could do as easter decoration in "Dark Passage's" style and here is it. A genetic...
  4. Halloween Props
    Hello Fellow Haunts! So this was my big project for last year. I added a back row to my archway as well, but I wanted to create something new and exciting! I built these two Jacko Sentinels to guard my back yard during the October season. They are built with a PVC frame and base. I used...
  5. REQUEST FOR TUTURIALS GO HERE
    Hey Spooky People! This isn't so much a request for a tutorial as it is a "am I going about this correctly" guide. The entrance to our haunt is a sort of fall-down-the-rabbit-hole type deal. I want to build a rock arch similar to this: It's not going to be that wide as I only have about 5'...
  6. General Halloween
    This focus of this thread is on collecting and sharing our tabletop displays. Not just during the collecting season, but also during the off season with finds from thrift stores, garage/yard sales, Ebay, Craigslist, etc. How long and what types of Halloween tabletop, wall, window, and tree...
  7. Halloween Props
    So I stood in line at Michael's for at least 20 minutes this past weekend with a bunch of people buying Christmas stuff and I wondered to myself "I wonder what these people would do if they knew I was here to buy supplies for next year's Halloween and I don't care about the Xmas stuff...."...
  8. Halloween Props
    The last time I made something out of paper mache was in the fourth grade, so I am beyond rusty. However, we love the look of props created with paper mache and we're going to increase the number of projects that use it going forward. But there in lies the tale. I'm the one who's going to be...
  9. Halloween Props
    Hi! I'm new to this forum, and I'm looking to create a PVC armature that's animated. I know there's a website that makes them, but $150 for just the frame is pretty steep. I know a friend of mine suggested a company called Witch Doctor, but I simply cannot find the website anywhere. She said she...
  10. Halloween Props
    First Prop done! Probably going to get some better audio but that's my first attempt to create parrot talk. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cOulBrC7AoQ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GVNiWc-j2_g It's a Hasbro Squawkers McCaw FurReal Friends parrot. You can buy them on Ebay. Just make sure...
  11. Halloween Props
    Sorry all, I could not figure out how to rotate the pics. :( This year, my wife challenged me to create a theme based on a swamp or bayou. I started with some old fence panels turned on their side and attached. I added a porch of pallets and cut one pallet in half to create a dock. The...
  12. Tutorials and Step-By-Step
    Don't know if it will be so much a tutorial, but I've decided to revisit one of my old props and attack it with some lessons learned. Back in 2012 I created the original Trevor. It was meant to be a one-off, and sold after Halloween that year. I was unhappy with a couple little...
  13. Member Introduction
    Hi everyone! I created my first decoration display this year (a Halloween themed gingerbread house ruled by cats, because why not) and had a FANTASTIC time making everything! It's truly addicting and I'm already working on next year's theme- Pirates of the Caribbean. It has also inspired me to...
  14. Halloween Props
    Hi All! I'm new here- I decided to sign up because I made my first Halloween scene this year and had such a great time. Now I'm already thinking about next year... I want to do a Pirates of the Caribbean scene from The Curse of the Black Pearl, specifically the treasure cave scene. I would like...
  15. Tutorials and Step-By-Step
    Hello, I want to create a Hologram of the witching Hour in the middle of the office but need any advice on how to place the projector so eliminate the bleeding of the image in a wall or ceiling.
  16. Halloween Props
    I used to go all out for Halloween with one of my family members. We would prep and prop all year long to put out massive displays of pirates and ghosts and mummies. Unfortunately, this year, that family member is no longer around. I had already made the costumes (haunted toys/dolls) but now I...
  17. Halloween Props
    Hello and good day! Ok, so I ran out of time. I'm just going to blame it on my cats. I have a ton of rescue kitties, and it seems it's one emergency after another with them. So! I saw an idea from Pumpkinrot that I really liked that he/she did a variant several years. There's 3 characters...
  18. 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...
  19. Halloween Props

The name of their web page was called "Wolfstone"....Does anyone know of their whereabouts? I have some Gargoyle Latex molds that I would like to build a frame -support for the, use a...
  20. Halloween Props
    I have this motor with pulley that is attached to my cage prop that I want to spin a couple feet off the ground. Are there any suggestions on how I can anchor this motor to some fixed point? I tried attached to a long piece of wood whose ends were held between two bird feeder poles but I'm...
