    Halloween Props
    Hello all - I finally am getting around to posting a brief video of last year's setup. This was taken the night before Halloween and does not have footage of the massive amounts of fog we put out and the hundred of kids that showed up.

  5. Shallow Grave Cemetery 2018 - Garden of Souls

    General Halloween
    Thy soul shall find itself alone. Mid dark thoughts of the gray tombstone. Not one, of all the crowd, to pry into thine hour of secrecy. The spirits of the dead who stood in life; before thee are again. In death around thee, and their will shall overshadow thee...

  7. 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...
  8. 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...

  10. Static: ISO: Giant Oak tree ideas

    Halloween Props
    We recently purchased a house with a large oak tree in front. I am expanding my cemetary this year and will be using some fog machines and AtmosFX. However, I am at a lost at what to put around the tree. I personally don't like the witches or ghosts in a circle you see everywhere. Just...
  11. Questions about those window crasher ghosts?

    General Halloween
    I just came across these and looking to get one. Are there any specific brands you recommend? I see some for $10 then up to $80. Is there really a difference? I'm thinking of just buying a stuffed ghost, slice it in half and add a magnet to the bottom and stick it to the outside of the window...

    Halloween Props
    Trying to add some "fun/cool" to my stuff this year. I've seen some VERY impressive projected singing busts (Grim Grinning Ghosts) in the past and wanted to do one myself... Bought the standard styrofoam heads for $1.00 off eBay (china delivery) and started adding Dap ElastoPatch (It has the...
  17. Mechanical: Haunted swing

    Halloween Props
    Hey all, I'm thinking about doing at least one 'haunted swing' in our yard this year. Ideally I'd like this to swing on its own, and so need ideas for ways to do that. I'm guessing the old "hook it up to a wiper motor" will be the most common idea, but does anyone have a simpler way to do it...

  20. Spooky Ghosts and Ghouls

    Halloween Props
    Having a hard time finding spooky ghosts and ghouls. Everything looks so cutesy and cheap - both store bought and hand made on the internet. Any ideas from fellow scary haunters on how to make them?
