  1. My Take on “Dearly Beloved” Crypt

    Halloween Props
    This is my take on Hawthorne Mannor’s “Dearly Beloved“ prop. I built the crypt last year and got the Skeleton moving this year. I used a monster mud coated sheet over a form made from newspaper-stuffed clothes and a mannequin head. Faux granite, weathered patina brass, and white marble paint...
  2. Pneumatic: Garage Mausoleum

    Halloween Props
    So, I've been kinda dormant with building for a while. This year I decided to go big or go home:) Early September I got the idea to do a crypt wall over the garage door, thanks to others on here. Well then I decided to up the anti a little bit and add a little "shock" factor. So, I started...

    This is a fog chiller Cadaver Crypt I made. Behind one of the skulls is a fan to bring fresh air into the fog machine and the other 7 are where the fog exits. Inside there is also space for ice to cool the fog.

  7. Static: Garage Crypt - UPDATE - Now with Paint

    Halloween Props
    I finally got around to painting the crypt that I designed, and think it turned out well. My question though, do you all think I should age it. If so, do you all have any tips or tutorials? This is the first time I will have messed with aging, and since this is such a big project, I am a...

    Tutorials and Step-By-Step
    Hey All, I'm working on a foam crypt facade from 2" pink home depot foam and a 1x2 sub-structure. I'm to the point where I'm ready to mate foam to the sub-structure. What's glue should I use? Thanks. HH
  9. Fog: How much ice

    Halloween Props
    There are a number of people with great fog chillers. I was curious as to about how much ice do you go through in a typical night. I am planning a crypt style chiller and wanted to know how much room I will need to have for ice.

  12. Road's End/Eerie Manor 2016; The Crypt of Count Draven"

    General Halloween
    This was the third collaborative haunt between myself and fellow forum member lewlew (Mark). This year we darkened things down several shades and went with a vampire crypt theme. Planning began back in February and culminated in our biggest and best walk through ever. The layout consisted of a...
  13. Mechanical: Crypt Fogger blowin in the wind

    Halloween Props
    In years past our fog has been run through black drain hose and a home made fog cooler to fog up our cemetery. The effect worked well enough but only if the air temp is below 38° and there is no wind. This year we wanted more focus on where the fog comes from so we built a crypt with a built...
  14. 3 props - animatronic crypt - archway - spider

    For Sale/Trade By Individuals
    I have 3 props. Not looking to sell - I really enjoy making things but I don't believe in taking money for things I made - I just don't have the space to store these anymore. A large and very heavy/sturdy animatronic crypt (tops bursts open and Skelton like creature pops out) - a large arch way...
  15. Mausoleum - Crypt Portability/Storage

    Halloween Prop Building Group
    I would like to build a Mausoleum - Crypt but my issue is portability and storage throughout the year. I am also a one man operation so it needs to be easily assembled / disassembled but also not fall apart when it is being displayed the week or two prior to Halloween. Any ideas or links on...
  16. Static: 242 Foam blocks (Crypt Entrance Project)

    Halloween Props
    Jdubbya and I are going to do a vampire theme for the collaborative haunt this year so I thought, "Wouldn't it be cool to have a crypt entrance for the patrons to walk through before going into the haunt."....If I had only known... 242 foam blocks later I started on our project. The dimensions...
  17. Fog: Crypt Chiller nearing completion

    Halloween Props
    I am really close to putting this project to bed. I still need to finish up painting, adding a fan to blow the smoke through the tube and hiding parts I don't want seen, but I should be done this weekend. I haven't had a chance to test it with ice yet, but here are some photos on my version of a...
  18. Static: Skeleton sarcophagus build

    Halloween Props
    Last year I made this sarcophagus in kind of a last minute decision since I messed up on the coffin I was trying to make. I realized too late that my dimensions were off so I decided to make this instead. I am pleased with how the sarcophagus turned out overall and I like the variation of using...

    Halloween Props
    Hey guys still thinking about which poison prop I might get this year. I was going to get this crypt lunger but I saw a video on facebook on one they made for a customer I didn't like it the movement and for 3 grand I want something better so I am not getting that one. Here is the video of...
