  6. Electronic/Software: Need Help with Micca or Projector....again

    Halloween Props
    I have 4 Miccas, different brands but the same plug-ins because I am using them for older projectors. I need music to come from the projectors and found that I plug the speaker cord into the Micca it will play perfectly. I could not get it to play on any of the projectors when plugged into them...
  7. Fog: Fog machine wiring diagram

    Halloween Props
    Hello, I'm trying to build a new trigger (timer and/or motion detector) for my small fog machine (110vac). It initially had a wireless trigger device which plugged into a 3-conductor connector at the rear of the machine. The device has failed. I've been looking at the schematic for a while...
  8. Video Recording for "How-To's"?

    Off-Topic Stuff
    Hey all, I'm looking to build some props this coming year and figured I would like to record the process so I can post how-to's? But wasn't sure what would be a good camera option to record the videos? Do people have recommendations on what they use. I figure my phone/camera is not good enough...
  9. A trip to Target - Crowd Levels

    General Halloween
    I was surprised. There were A LOT of people in the Halloween section, most displays and decorations were gone. There was candy left but even that was getting smaller in supply. I did grab 2 bags of backup candy *Butterfingers and Nestle Crunch* that were $2.66 a piece or 3/$8. I bought 2...
  10. The first (and probably last) Ghostbusters Halloween train!

    General Halloween
    Been working on this idea for a while. I've taken an old Ecto 1 remote controlled car with lights and siren that a guy modified to add more lights and wanted to mount it to one of my trains for Halloween. The trick was it had to be high enough to get around the other trains since I've got 3...
  11. Halloween 2018 up and running!

    After setting up for 6 weeks, here are some photos of our Halloween production this year. I have over 100 photos and videos, but I have not been able to post videos due to file size limitations. I will be taking many more photos and videos on Halloween night! :D
  12. Other: Barnyard nitemares

    Halloween Props
    We opened the haunt to the public last weekend (Friday,Saturday Sunday) for the first time. Some may recall that it was open for a party 2 years ago and then sat last year due to other commitments of the owner. Here's a video taken on Saturday night. This was later in the evening when a couple...
  13. Fog: Fog Machines and Vinegar

    Halloween Props
    Has anyone left vinegar in their fog machine? I left vinegar in mine last year and now its not working. The pump comes on but doesn't pump fluid. I took the pump apart and cleaned it up still nothing. The only thing I can figure is the vinegar messed the seals up. Just a last effort to see if...
  14. Only house in our neighborhood decorated for Halloween!

    General Halloween
    My wife and I went out looking the other night...nothing. It was a bit disappointing - the neighborhood has grown up over the years but there are still some kids around. We, on the other hand, stand out like a light house in a fog bank. We figure the neighbors all talk about us, but I'd rather...
  15. Best times to shop certain stores for Halloween for max discounts?

    General Halloween
    I am curious if there is a guide for the perfect time to hit the 50%+ discounts for many of the stores. I always hit Spirit November 1st. But what about places like Michael's which is sold out by Nov 1st, or Kirkland, or the big box stores? When are those perfect times without having to drive to...
  16. OBELISK build file!

    Tutorials and Step-By-Step
    So we've lost quite a few aggregate prop build sites in the last decade, and some projects that were mainstays of the home haunter are disappearing from the web, including one of the best foam tombstone obelisk builds most of us have come across. But it was rescued from obscurity by the...
  17. Tombstone Corners from Dollar Tree

    General Halloween
    You know the Halloween village pieces? I'm trying to figure out how many years they did it (was it just 2014-2016?), and what pieces went to what years (pictures). I made a list of what I'm missing last year but without pictures...it's not helpful. I think I managed to find the pictures for...
  18. Electronic/Software: Computer power supply not powering wiper motor

    Halloween Props
    The setup worked a couple years ago. I tested the motor with a car battery and it works. I also put the meter on the outputs of the computer power supply and I get 5 volts on the red and 12 on the yellow. When I connect the motor to the power supply the motor doesn't turn at all, I measured with...
  19. Electronic/Software: Problems with trigger for Spirit Halloween scarecrow

    Halloween Props
    Hello- I'm trying to make a sitting scarecrow prop work from a remote trigger. The trigger is just a relay with a remote control. I've done this before with other props (just yesterday the jumping spider) but I can't figure out what I'm missing with this one. I expected to use a 3.5mm audio...
  20. Lighting: LED Lighting Question - PSU, LED Driver

    Halloween Props
    Hey all, I bought some pre wired LED's that I'm using in a project. ( https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01DZIRPM4/ ) I'm still trying to figure out how to hook them up, but need some help. Would I use a Power supply or LED driver to drive these? I only need 6-10 of these led's hooked up...
