  1. Halloween Props
    Hey all, I want to try something different this year for my porch and I am not sure what I need. I know this is the place to come though because you guys are awesome. I have a porch and I want to cobweb throughout and I want to really highlight the spooky affect with black lights. In my...

    I found this chest in neighbor's trash this morning, and I was wondering if my creature dude could be made to slowly come out of the chest as the lid opens? Creature is made of heavy foam and latex, and I'd have to shave a couple inches off the rear for him to fully fit. Even then, his head...

    As background, I have purchased several masks from Trick or Treat Studios. I didn't have any problems with the transactions, and the masks arrived in good shape. I posted reviews of each mask on their website, in which I went into some detail. My 4- and 5-star reviews were approved, and they...

    Hello Halloween Forum Members, Although I signed up last Halloween season, I have really not posted anything till just recently. I started building Halloween props and sets many years ago when I was in Jr. High and long before anything was available for purchase. The end result was that (back...

    I feel like there's a thread on here every few weeks asking for projector recommendations, yet here I am again... I've decided I should try using a projector to decorate, but I don't want it to be so obvious I'm using a projector. So I thought maybe I could hide one inside the shell of a...
  8. Halloween Props
    Hi all, Halloween isn't as popular in the UK as it is in the US, but I'm hopefully going to change that over the next few years as I build my drive / front garden (yard?) display, well at least in my leafy part of West Sussex anyway. I have a lot of prop building experience (R2D2, 2 x Daleks...

    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...

    Hi everybody! Sorry if this question was already raised, but how do you feel about ToTs (in my experience generally older) who come and ask for candies but they don’t have a costume or not even a mask or something? I don’t get too many, but they still annoy me a bit - I would like to tell...

    These are like amazing lights to light up your props or haunt. They are small 12V LED lights, different colors: Red, Yellow, Green, Blue, and White... They are constructed with a metal body (anodized aluminum most likely) these lights are practically indestructible -- I mean if you drop it or it...

    Anyone have experience creating fake explosions? I'd like to simulate a small explosion that would result from cannon fire. It would need run several times during the evening. I've seen examples using flour/baby powder and an air cannon....which would be perfect except it would need refilling...

    Hello Everyone. I'm now in my 4th year of decking out my yard with various props to scare and delight. Mostly I enjoy making props myself with inspiration and guidance from many in this forum. I sometimes repurpose the commercial props sold from the Halloween popups, picking them up after...

    Hi, Not sure if this is correct forum, but wanted to see if anybody had experience with repairing Lemax Haunted Clock Tower 35531. The cogs, clock and skeleton animation are not working but other lights are. Thanks.

    Putting together an electric chair and wanted to use a couple flash crackers on the chair uprights near area where the TOT's upper arms/shoulders are. Before doing so, I wanted to make sure there was no danger of shock or hearing damage with the crackers within several inches of the TOT's...I...

    Image: Youtube video of High Voltage/Death Row combo: This will be my second time doing a yard haunt, but this is the first year we’re going all in. We will be doing an asylum theme. I’ve already got the lovely Death Row inmate, but am looking for the High Voltage box that can activate it...

    Looking at buying a great big bulk purchase for some upgrades to our pumpkin lights. None of the Ebay stores have them in the qty I need, thus I went looking and found several options on DHGate. Anyone have experience buying from them?
  19. Halloween Props
    I'd like to try and build a hellevator for my next project in 2018. I am kind of a stickler for a realistic experience and was wondering if anyone here has built one or been on one. I have not and was wondering what the experience was like and will it be worth building. Any cautionary tales or...
