  1. Nightmare Before Christmas 2019

    General Halloween
    Since there seems to be new merch ever year, I figured we'd get this one started for 2019. Any new Nightmare stuff people have spotted yet? It looks like Home Depot will be getting the Jack and Sally animatronics from Spirit (no word yet on whether they will be an improvement). There will...
  2. Static: Foam board insulation-how do you get the 48"x8' sheets home?

    Halloween Props
    /scratches head. I know this sounds like a stupid question (and maybe it is) but-I don't have a truck-and I have to believe that I'm not the only one;) I can't find anywhere that will deliver the foam board used to make tombstones etc for a sane price. So that makes things a little difficult...
  3. Mask totem

    General Halloween
    I love masks but storage can become an issue. I was on Spider Hilll's site a while back and noticed a fitting that was either new to their line or I had just missed previously. It's a slip cross fitting for 1 " PVC. Inspired me to build this. "][/URL] Here's a detail. Mounted on a wooden...

  5. Animated GraveDigger

    Tutorials and Step-By-Step
    This is an animated Gravedigger prop I made. It's mostly recycled from old props and molds I had in the garage, but I animated it in the "leering ghost" kind of way (bent PVC attached to upper body and running on a slow window motor). I attached mine to the window roller motor with Home Depot...

  8. Animatronic Eye Mechanism

    Tutorials and Step-By-Step
    Hi all, longtime haunter first time post: This is a quick eye movement test I did of some eyes I made (these were a junk pair that I had used for a sculpting blank). The actual mechanism is made from 2 old servos, some baling wire and a home depot paint stick. It is just a test but as you see I...
  9. Static: Home Depot Skeleton and Zombie Horse on clearance

    Halloween Props
    Hi Everyone, We just logged into Home Depot to look around and their full sized zombie and skeleton horses are on clearance for less than $50.00. That might mean this is the last year we're going to see them, but whatever it is, if you've wanted one, now is the time to grab them before they're...
  10. Prop Showcase: How to make the 3 Classic Halloween Monsters work?

    Halloween Props
    I bought the 3 Classic Halloween Monsters this year through Home Depot (Werewolf, Drac & Frankenstein). They are IR props that work off of each other, but I have no idea how to set them off without having to press the button on each of their arms. Is there a hack to hook them up to step pads or...

  12. Mechanical: HELP!! Home Depot Wicked Witches

    Halloween Props
    Recently purchased the store display of these at Home Depot for $21 (told the cashier they were broken. Which they were, the arm brackets were broken off one of the witches two arms, so she took off 50% of the sale price) got them home to test out and the mouths don’t move, cauldron mech doesn’t...
  13. Places to get free styrofoam

    General Halloween
    So most of us are always on the look out for free or really inexpensive material for making our props. I thought of several places where folks could possibly obtain free styrofoam big enough for tombstones, or building facades, or mausoleums, ...etc. Go and talk to your local stores that sell...

  15. Does anyone "dress up" their Crazy Bonez skeleton dogs in their displays?

    General Halloween
    I'm not sure how I feel about dressing up real dogs in halloween costumes, not sure they really like having stuff on them and kind of feel sorry for them if they don't, but when it comes to the skeleton dogs don't think these dogs will mind. Can't say I've ever seen anyone do this for their...
  16. Static: Need Help: Home Depot Fire Dragon Assembly

    Halloween Props
    It's been raining nonstop here for weeks, now, and I'm so far behind it's just sad at this point. However, I thought if nothing else, I could get my giant fire dragon set up on the porch and hopefully that would build some momentum. ...except I can't get his dadgummed frakkin' lakkin' head to...
  17. Static: Pumpkin Bucket Skellie

    Halloween Props
    A quick and easy DIY project. I used a skeleton from Walmart, which screws together. You'll also need a pumpkin bucket, some black acrylic paint (because the face was barely painted at all), and some lights - I'm using two "amber" color Mr Beams porch step lights from Home Depot, because I...

  19. Static: Where to buy "mean" looking skulls?

    Halloween Props
    I'm a fan of the bag of skulls available for 10 dollars at Home Depot, personally. And some of the styrofoam half skulls (no jaw) at Michael's. But what if I'm looking for something a bit more sinister looking? You know, exaggerated browbones and more of a scowl expression? Does anyone know...
  20. HD Skeleton Horse Help

    Halloween Props
    For those with the Home Depot Skeleton horse with the saddle and a rider, how are you getting the Skelton rider to stay on the saddle? For the last 2 years, I have used fishing line in all sorts of ways to make it stay, even then a small breeze causes it to topple over. Any insight and...
