  1. Static: NBC yard

    Halloween Props
    After I moved here and produced my first Halloween yard my neighbors asked what I was going to do for Christmas. I had no idea that I moved onto a road where everyone did Christmas displays. So I slowly transitioned into a Nightmare Before Christmas theme. Each year I just make or add one...
  2. 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...
  3. Prop Showcase: Halloween Haunt 2018

    Halloween Props
    Here is the video of our Halloween 2018 we had around 700 to 800 kids, the weather was good until Halloween night around 8 pm when it started to rain so found myself putting everything away wet as usual here in the NW
  4. Passing along a deal I found - Full size dummy

    General Halloween
    I know this isn't the best prop, but I saw that Amazon is selling a Full Size Dummy with Hands for $25.19 with $14 shipping. Deeply discounted from what I've seen it priced elsewhere. I'm using it for a Weekend at Bernie's prop...

  6. Haunted Mansion Singing Busts

    Tutorials and Step-By-Step
    It's been a longtime goal of mine to make the singing busts for my Halloween display. I wanted to share how I did it, and make some recommendations for those who are interested in doing the same. First, I started the project with a budget in mind. I wanted to keep it under $500. Second, I...
  7. Good tutorial (or class) for Electronics for Halloween props?

    General Halloween
    Hey all, Looking to step up my halloween display for next year and want to get into electronics and was wondering if anyone has/knows of good tutorials for beginners? I'm found some videos online, but figured I would ask here for more Halloween centric tutorials? Thanks.
  8. 2018 Might well be our last display ...

    General Halloween
    We're in the UK and have been doing a display in our front garden (yard) since 2014. In the five years it's grown a little with gravestones, earth breakers, full skeletons, occasionally a fog machine, and this year I had an Atmosfear projection in the window, so nothing fancy and pretty basic...
  9. Static: Found cool parts

    Halloween Props
    So you never know what kinda parts you need for props. I got my washing machine worked on today. The shocks were bad. I had never seen any before. So before I threw the box away, I opened it. I'm sure these will come in handy one day for something I'm building. Even if I take them apart for...
  10. Nightmare King - Burger King

    General Halloween
    First found out about it from the BK app. Start today. The FIRST Nightmare King made at the BK today. Workers didn't know how to make it so they went outside and used their phone to snap a picture of the big poster promoting Nightmare King. (Buns is GREEN but camera can't seem to see it that...
  11. The evolution of Captain Spaulding WIP

    Halloween Costume Ideas
    I’ve procrastinated way too long! Our Halloween party is Friday so time to get to work on hubby’s costume: I did find a wide-striped red and white satin online but it was a minimum 5-yard order and by the time shipping was added, it was going to be around $75. The blue fabric with stars or...
  12. Static: Pumpkin Bucket Skellie

    Halloween Props
    A quick and easy DIY project. I used a skeleton from Walmart, which screws together. You'll also need a pumpkin bucket, some black acrylic paint (because the face was barely painted at all), and some lights - I'm using two "amber" color Mr Beams porch step lights from Home Depot, because I...
  13. Static: Just found a huge, retro Sleepy Hollow sign at TJ Maxx ... how to improve on it?

    Halloween Props
    Hi guys, So in the spirit of my pumpkin sentinel and funeral hearse I found this perfect sign to go in my yard to drive the effect home. Never seen one like it and it's pretty impressive. Solid, sturdy wood and nice graphics and routering. That said, I want to "relic" it a bit more. How...
  14. Ghost Hunter Game - scavenger hunt

    Party Ideas. Experiences and Recipes
    This was a game we did 2 years ago when our party theme was Ghostbusters. I went around and took photos of the faces of props and decorations. I wrote up a page explaining that ghosts have escapes from the Ecto-Containment Unit and it was their job to find them. On the sheet were about a dozen...

  16. Mechanical: Zultan transistor

    Halloween Props
    I'm hoping to find a transistor expert in here. I've got an old Zultan that we've had forever and we love. The Curtains stopped opening (common problem). Temporarily I wired them open, but now I'm trying to fix it. In chasing the lack of voltage getting to the motor I came across a...
