  2. Other Wheel of Darkness

    Halloween Crafts
    Okay, so I bought this old, rusty wagon wheel at an antique store. It actually use to go on an old Grain Binder, which was manufactured in the late 1800's. (Grain Binders were actually very expensive back then, and few farmers could afford to purchase one.) As soon as I saw it, I knew I could...
  3. Static: Cheap and easy way to make dead pirates

    Just thought I would share with you, and easy and cheap way I have found to make my dead skeleton pirates for this years Halloween display. The full poseable skeletons are really expensive here in UK and as I need quite a few pirates decided to experiment a bit. I don't claim to be a master...

    I've done some searching but maybe I'm just overlooking it, but I thought I once saw a fairly easy method to make some poseable hands for props? I've never used latex, so would like avoid that route. I appreciate any help, direction provided. Thank you!
  7. Scream at the Beach's simple 9-room maze

    General Halloween
    Has anybody been to Portland's Scream at the Beach haunted attraction? In it, there was a maze called Clown Chaos, with small (almost closet-sized) rooms with black plywood walls covered in wide yellow and red streamers.

  9. Prop Showcase: Cheap n' Easy Scare Prop!

    Halloween Props
    We built this in 2006 and it was a big hit! I'm not sure how many of you have either heard of this idea or ever done it so I decided to share it. I hadn't heard of this ever being done so I had come up with the idea to build a jail cage. I know it sounds simple and kind of cheesy but the results...
