    Member Introduction
    Hello, I'm from the upper Midwest, were it is snowing like crazy. I'm 56 years old and have managed a apple orchard and pumpkin patch for years. We did a haunted house and hayride in October. Unfortunately, the owners of the orchard have retired and now the place sits. The retirement has...
  2. 2018 One-car Garage Haunt -- Video Posted on YouTube!

    General Halloween
    Finally got around to posting something to YouTube! I had about 200 visitors and maybe 100 walked through my haunt. It's not too scary, I keep it fairly tame as we have a lot of young children. Still it was a lot of fun to put together... Enjoy! :D

  4. Static: Cadaver tomb

    Halloween Props
    I wanted to have a simple shroud over my skeleton cadaver on this tomb. I know many people use monster mud to get the effect but that it is also fairly heavy. Since the shroud really will not be supporting any weight can I skip the joint compound?

  6. Static: Paper Mache and Resin?

    Halloween Props
    Forgive me if this has been asked before. I'm planning on making an alien from the film "Devil's Gate", The skeleton will be PVC but I need to bulk up some areas with paper mache, or something. This prop needs to be waterproof to stand up to fall weather in MI. Once I get the body the way I...
  7. Making Lemonade: Unorthodox 2016

    General Halloween
    So. Let's sum it all up. The house is torn apart. The yard is a mud pit. It's supposed to rain out our party Sunday. There are those who just accept fate in these situations. For me, it's a question: Do we do the full yard walkthrough, or a front yard display? The present...
  8. Who do you ship with for SR?

    General Halloween
    Ok so, I don't ship many items...scratch that, I don't ship any items until secret reaper rolls around. Last year I used Fed Ex and I shipped out some fairly large boxes, one being almost 10 pounds and the shipping came to just under $20. Fine, it was a big box and it was heavy and fragile...
  9. Alternative to Paper Mache

    General Halloween
    Hello, I am looking for options for covering inflatables to be used for outside decorations. Inexpensive, fairly weather resistant, quick to apply, hard shell. Any ideas?

    I'm leaning towards some kind of simple clock but will look at anything as long as it's fairly easy and most of all cool. :D
  11. I had never seen anyone like this

    General Halloween
    the other night a local man brought a woman here for the house tour,she had been here 20 years ago. EVERY TIME she laughed (which was often) her head would be thrown back as if she was looking at the ceiling and she had this loud, huge LAUGH! (that went on for quite awhile!?) Mouth open wide...
  12. Playing cards?

    General Halloween
    I have a fairly serious playing card issue... Anyhow, that's a long story in and of itself. To the point. Stumbled on these last year. Now I have my finances together, had to go get them. Known as the Tragic Royalty deck, they are designed to stand out. And of course, the...

    Looking to beef up my bat collection a bit. Particularly interested in these larger brown latex ones sold by Spirit and other retailers. Must be in decent shape(no rips/tears, not collapsed, etc,) and priced fairly. Let me know what you have, price and pics please. Thanks...
  14. Zombie Bait, Jumping Zombie, Head Banging Zombie

    For Sale/Trade By Individuals
    I posted these items for sale on Craigslist. I'd prefer not to ship due to size. I've received a couple lowball offers but feel I've priced them fairly enough. If anyone near Rochester, NY is interested let me know http://rochester.craigslist.org/for/4623270173.html...
