  1. Electronic/Software: FM transmitter for UK, are they legal if so what do you recommend

    Halloween Props
    Hi, I'm toying with the idea of projecting onto my house for Halloween 2019, I would like to also have sound. I'm wondering whether I could have speakers (on low volume) for ToTs and an FM transmitter for people driving by. Firstly, are FM transmitters (for what I want to do) legal in the UK...
  2. Lighting: 2018 House and yard setup

    Halloween Props
    It's my second year decorating at our new house. We don't get any TOT's since we live on a main road, but we do get a lot of cars driving by and slowing down. I have have two projectors running: second floor is a ghost bride loop and the first floor is a loop of sirens and wraiths. We have a...
  3. What is Wrong With People?

    General Halloween
    Tonight, I went driving around to see if there were any more local displays I've missed. It seems like there are fewer people who have done anything significant than last year, but one thing I did see... 4 houses with Christmas lights up and *ON*! Why would anyone have their Christmas lights...
  4. Modifying a "spotlight"

    General Halloween
    Hi all! I bought a "spotlight" several years ago, but have never used it. I finally got my skeletons up into a tree in our front yard... and I thought it would be fun to shine a spotlight on them. So I put in a bulb, plugged it in... and it's really just a bare bulb. So it's super bright for...
  5. Static: Some pictures of our 17th/18th century newbie graveyard, and an obelisk question...

    Halloween Props
    Just thought I'd share what we've been working on! My fiancée is an English professor and I'm a full-time grad student so we generally only have so much time to work on things during the year while we're exhausted, but we've got a pretty respectable start! Most of the tombstones are from last...
  6. October on the East coast - Advice, please!

    General Halloween
    2018 October on the East coast - Advice, please! So, I'm from Colorado and I've never spent Halloween outside of the state before. This year, I decided I'm going to spend Halloween with my boyfriend, who lives in Brooklyn. I've done some searches, but I'd like to hear from locals and people...

  9. When spring break turns into Halloween.

    General Halloween
    Try as we might, there's just no topping Mother Nature. We took spring break last week down to the Grand Canyon and Bryce Canyon. When Friday and Saturday turned into a rainy wet wash... That's when we headed into the park specifically seeking out atmosphere pics. Guard at the gate...
  10. Drive Bys --- The good kind!

    General Halloween
    People driving by the house to watch the progress of our decor has started! I live on a corner in a cul de sac. People have been pulling in and driving by slowly. We have started eating dinner in the dining room so we can watch. Lots of smiles! Love it! We are really the only people in...
  11. Mechanical: Keep going or veer off on a (better) tangent? Prop dilemma

    Halloween Props
    So I'm about $100 into a prop build for my carnival theme. And it's going to take quite a bit more time and money and tinkering to make it work, and I'm not an expert in mechanical props, so I was looking at a very frustrating bunch of days ahead. The problem is that I just thought of...
  12. Hi from the other side of Toronto!

    Member Introduction
    Just saying hi! Mostly a xmas lights guy, but always do a halloween show for a "warmup". Last year did a pair of joking bucky skulls telling jokes with 2 servos driving it. Was a good intro for me. Now to figure out where to go from there. Anyways, i'm in Pickering Ontario which is just east of...
  13. Anyone struggling through this??? Talk to me...

    General Halloween
