  2. Build a pneumatic cob web gun

    Tutorials and Step-By-Step
    This is yet another orphan how-to, unfortunately I never recorded who the original creator of this one was: I saw these web guns for sale on various websites and they aren't that cheap. After reading up on them I figured it was time I made one. I'm going to keep these instruction brief since...
  3. Pneumatic: Pneumatic Slenderman Prop Build

    Halloween Props
    Hey Haunters! So I took a much needed break after the season ended but I finally finished my video about my slender man prop. He's motion activated, runs on pneumatics and was a huge hit! He leans forward suddenly and his arms lunge out at you while he plays a sound effect from one of his video...
  4. HauntLilydale 2018 First major haunt and trick or treat

    General Halloween
    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...
  5. How did your party go?

    Party Ideas. Experiences and Recipes
    My husband and I had a Halloween game night last night! We had invited five people, but two (roommates) were unable to make it due to being ill. Lots of leftovers (ham sandwiches, mashed potatoes, meatballs, chips, pop - the chip dip and veggies all went, though!). As for the games, we played...
  6. Free graveyard fence - Long Beach CA

    For Sale/Trade By Individuals
    I posted this in the Props forum a couple of days ago. This may be a better place for it... I made a bunch of graveyard fence and ended up having three sections extra. I'll never use it and I can't think of a better use than giving it to someone on this forum. Each section is about 9'. I have...
  7. Static: Free graveyard fence - Long Beach CA

    Halloween Props
    I made a bunch of graveyard fence and ended up having three sections extra. I'll never use it and I can't think of a better use than giving it to someone on this forum. Each section is about 9'. I have some extra pickets as well. You can PM me but the best bet is to call - 562.682.0261. I'm in...
  8. Static: Is this mannequin head too simple?

    Halloween Props
    I am horrible with painting. Well, not ALL painting. Give me 4 walls, a roller and a brush and I can make that room look amazing. When it comes to any other form of painting, I just can't seem to get it down. I have painted this head 3 times already! I am calling it done. Because if I try...
  9. Another Pennywise Win!

    General Halloween
    My son wore the Pennwise costume I bought for use as a prop to the Spooky Empire event this past weekend, and he and his wife who was dressed as Giggles the clown, had several hundred pictures taken of them, but one of those pics ended up being used for an article about the event that appeared...

    General Halloween
    Since my massive selloff in the beginning of 2013, my remaining haunt items has been in storage....I finally started acquiring things again this summer to do a smaller walk through....I have no desire to do a full blown VSA design again.....I kept most of my fright ideas controllers and the...
  11. Fabric Fabric question for the experts

    Halloween Crafts
    Which fabrics are the lightest, for any given yard? I need to recover a moving prop and need to keep weight down. I tried estimating in the fabric store but it's almost impossible to tell since everything is folded and each piece is usually a different length after they've already cut some off...
  12. Failoween in TN (what I ended up with)

    General Halloween
    The Monster and horse have to wait till next year. The Tape ghost is toast I have to remake her for next year. I feel like it's all kind of lackluster compared to what i intended. :(
  13. What is your easiest halloween prop that ended up being the best?

    General Halloween
    I have most of my props out, but I see people with projectors and music synced lighting. What is the simplest thing that you made or bought that ended up being the scariest and biggest kid pleaser?
  14. "Mental" Vrs. "Physical" Who wins?

    General Halloween
    I know i would be hard-pressed to entertain people the way that I do without an actual structure (and an appropriately scary looking one at that! ) But then a whole lot of my best stuff here actually is what "They" manage to manifest within their own minds. (I do strive to help that to happen.)...

    General Halloween

  16. My cyborg t-rex

    Halloween Costume Ideas
    Last year I built myself a t-Rex costume I had seen videos of dinosaur costumes and I wanted one but I couldn't afford the prices that these companies wanted. So after I cleared it with the wife and assured her that I wouldn't take her parking spot in the garage, I started my build with only...
  17. Static: Prop outdoor stand

    Halloween Props
    I was wondering if you could post a picture or give suggestions on what you use to stand your props up outside? We made a bunch of stands a few years back out of PVC that ended up snapping this past year. None of my props are super heavy but they all will be set up in the grass and with IL...

    General Halloween
    Can anyone please tell me where I can get the video of Madame Leota to project into a crystal ball? Tried to download one from you tube but ended up getting a bunch of garbage on my computer when I tried to get a converter.
