    Super excited that it's only 145 days away from Halloween! This year, for our fourth Party Haunt at this residence, we are doing a clown/carnival theme. We've had a few planning sessions, began prop building and and started the build a bit early to ensure we can add the all fine touches. We...

  3. Strange Things

    General Halloween
    I went on an outing yesterday too a local wilderness area so that I could collect materials for my haunt display. As I was searching for the perfectly twisted branches I came across something rather disturbing. A set of teeth protruding through the leaves. As I cleared away the debris I...
  4. Fog Scents?

    Product Reviews
    I ran four fog machines for three different scenes at my yard haunt this year. I saw that they sell fog scent and thought this would be perfect for each scene so I purchased Swamp for my pirate ship, Electrocution for my electric chair and Haunted Mansion for my haunted walkway. I purchased...
  5. New to custom props: How much should I expect to spend per diy custom prop?

    Halloween Props
    I'm new to making custom props and am wondering just how much I should expect to spend for simple pop-up props, like trash can trauma or some other pop-up props complete with sound and lights. Is $100 per prop about right? Is arduino the way to go? Also, for air cylinders, do diy pvc cylinders...
  6. Hey inflatable people. Questions

    Off-Topic Stuff
    Putting this here as I've just bought my first inflatables and have questions. While they are "halloween" inflatables, we're going to be using them for Christmas, so I didn't want to clutter the general thread. 1: Can you modify inflatables? We'd like to add santa hats, for instance, if...

    Let's say you were invited to a seance and you decided to go. What sorts of things would you expect to see and experience? The more details the better.
  9. First time giving out candy in a new City

    General Halloween
    I moved to Albuquerque a couple months ago for a job, a job that pays well enough that I can give out goodies for the first time in a couple years. But, I have no idea what to expect as far as turn out. Anyone else on here that lives in ABQ that could help me out with some advice?
  10. Static: Plastercast Pumpkin

    Halloween Props
    KrushR had posted a roll of plaster cloth from Amazon on the "What Did you but today?" thread. I really don't like paper mache so I thought I'd give this a try. So happy I did. This pumpkin was made in under an hour. I just added some reinforcements to areas I felt were weak. I expect to be...
  11. XMAS - A Twisted Holiday Tale

    Halloween Music
    I mixed together this track with music from a few horror flicks for an old forum competition I was part of. I'll spare the details of the nature of the original project...and just give you the story that I wrote for this piece: Billions. There are billions of children around the world...
  12. Orange Tuesday

    General Halloween
    Halloween retailers aren't promoting Orange Tuesday much this year. Even the ones having sales aren't using the name, and the deals aren't what you would expect.
  13. Suburbia and Trick or Treating?

    General Halloween
    We are (knock-on-wood) moving at the end of September. It will be my very, very first experience living in a neighborhood where we might get trick-or-treaters that might, you know, actually be trick-or-treating rather than just out to get free candy without caring about Halloween. Short...
  14. Static: Monster mud

    Halloween Props

  16. Going to be in the local paper!

    General Halloween
    Yes just the small paper for the surrounding communities, but still kind of exciting and nerve raking. I am not at all one for attention, but one of our friends contacted them and told them about our yard. They did tell us to expect more TOTS than usual. Anyone out there that has been in the...
