Looking forward to the next 2 months. I built a dark ride for a Nightmare Before Christmas themed maze. I will post pictures soon. The cart is a 4 person vehicle driven by two quantum scooter motors. I am using the wheels to pull the cart along a (2x4) track that is fastened to some...
Yankee Candle has Haunted Hollow Melt Cups and Fragrance Spheres for purchase online...as I type. They have Witches' Brew in the Melt Cup as well. Yankee put out some fall preview scents out during their Semi Annual Sale - several YouTube reviews to be watched. I have yet to make it to a store...
I write scary comics for kids (primarily ages 7 to 12), and I've been giving out copies of my comics on Halloween for years. This year, I'm planning to launch a Kickstarter campaign to fund a much larger print run of small-size, black and white editions. It's my way of testing the waters to...
I would like to make a speaker system where voices seem to move around an area. As people walk up the driveway voices travels around them. Back in the bad old days I had an 8 track player and quadraphonic speaker system that played Dark Side of the Moon. I always loved it. Today I'm...
These sets are becoming very difficult to find. They look like this.
I've already had one set reach of end of life and they are not repairable. And this comes from someone who has at least 50 Christmas light sets from the late 60's, early 70's and...
Currently most of my lighting is driven by low voltage power or by 110 AC. However I was wondering if anyone has tried using mostly solar lights. I see advantages and disadvantages of each but I wanted to start a discussion. Powering the lights with Low voltage or AC requires many more wires...
Finally getting updates and new projects after over a decade. Stuff like pirate shirts, cloaks, fancy skirts and such. Meant for beginning and intermediate sewing levels. Always wanted to learn to make your own costumes? This is a good place to start.

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.
I've been looking for two tealight holders I had in the late 80's. I've found their smaller versions, but want to find the larger pair. They are from Cannon Falls and came in two sizes: 6-ish inch versions and larger 12-ish inch versions.
I am not great at computer manipulation, but I...

Here are two vids of The Mugler Haunt 2018. First one is the walk through just prior to opening on Halloween night. The second is the Mugler Haunt on a dark night prior to Halloween. The scenes are changed and very different.
Last year I pulled together a quick zombie walk/scare and a few displays in about a week. This year a lot more time and prop making happened so we put on a much bigger display.
We had a little kid area with bright colourful fun witches and photo opportunities which then was under a black...
