  2. Would you hand out comics on Halloween?

    General Halloween
    I write scary comics for kids (primarily ages 7 to 12), and I've been giving out copies of my comics on Halloween for years. This year, I'm planning to launch a Kickstarter campaign to fund a much larger print run of small-size, black and white editions. It's my way of testing the waters to...

    Member Introduction
    Hello there from the Bayou State (Louisiana!) Just wanted to pop in and introduce myself on this super awesome forum. I made a PVC fence last year that I originally found linked here (and this is how I found the forum <3 )...I LOVE the way it came out. Almost got divorced over it...
  4. Black cat sitting on a fence

    General Halloween
    Found this adorable hollow concrete cat a while back. Today I decided to paint him black & perch him on a fence post. There are strong wooden dowels inside so he isn’t easily stolen or knocked off.

    Determined to pull off the dino theme this year and working on an idea for an electric fence to cordon off areas where I will be using AtmosFear's Dino Experience projections for "live" dinosaurs.

  6. Static: Using natural tree branch for scarecrow pole

    Halloween Props
    If I were to make a scarecrow and choose to use a thick branch (e.g. 1.5") for the vertical pole of the cross, any tips on getting scarecrow to stand? I had the idea of inserting the branch into a couple foot section of 2" PVC. Then I would either build a base for the PVC (concrete block or...

  12. 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.

  17. Fence Banging Zombie

    Tutorials and Step-By-Step
    Hey Haunters! Today I’m building an electric powered fence banging zombie. I used a windshield wiper motor for the movement and built the fence myself.

  18. Static: My 3-Week Funeral Hearse Build

    Halloween Props
    Hi everyone, for my first post (long time silent observer) I wanted to share the tail end of my hearse build. Now, first thing's first: I needed wheels. Because there was no way I was going to attempt this without having the coach wheels ready to go. So I found mine at a few different At Home...
  19. Starting to freak out already!

    General Halloween
    That darn "35 Days" sign up there isn't helping any! Friday is my Spawn's birthday. I always start to set up the cemetery the day after. However, she is turning 21. This means Thursday night at midnight, the hubby & I will be taking her out for her first "legal" adult beverage. Friday...
