  1. Halloween Props
    @Detour asked me in another thread to describe my cemetery fence build. In case someone else might want to use it, I decided not to bury it in that other thread with a different overall purpose. Sorry in advance for the long post, but you asked for it. 😁 So here's how I chose to build my version...
  2. Halloween Props
    I've been making props for the ghost train project but took the easy way out for another section of yard, where I'm going to project videos in a graveyard. I bought three of the Atmosfx 3D inflatable forms along with the Boo Crew video package. I've begun building a small crypt to hide the...
  3. Halloween Props
    Hey all. Last year I introduced two plastic mannequins in the yard as witches. I'll add a picture below. I really struggled to get the mannequins to stand up to strong winds. In the Chicago area we can get some pretty bad wind storms (40+ mph) in October making it really challenging to keep...
  4. Halloween Props
    Hey guys, I have 5 large tombstones that I put in the front yard every year. Prior to now, I wasn't very worried as the grass was mostly weeds.

  8. General Halloween
    We just watched a really good new flick called "Scary Stories To Tell In the Dark". It's a classic teenagers getting themselves in trouble during Halloween kind of "horror" flick. I'd call it more of a thriller than a horror flick. I highly recommend it, but not exactly scary. Anyway, there was...
  9. Headless Horseman 2015

    I had just moved across country and finally had a yard! This was my first big Halloween decorating! Why not celebrate it by making a giant headless horseman? Sadly it's been 4 years so I misplaced a lot of pictures. I made him out of pvc pipe, egg cartons, pillows, and duct tape. He was over 6'...
