  1. Happy Halloween!

    Member Introduction
    Hello to All. Earlier this evening, I was on Pinterest checking out some Halloween craft-y projects, and I landed here. Strangely, while I am not into the horror film genre, I get a great deal of satisfaction from engaging in the art process. I made a few things last year and this year, I'm...
  2. Static: My newest creation - "The Impaled Corpse"

    Halloween Props
    Started out just wanting to see how detailed I could make a corpsed skeleton, then it evolved into a corpse on a stake, then into a corpse staked on a tree branch with some severed rotting heads alongside. The corpsing was done with latex, shop towel and great stuff. There are a few other odds...
  3. DJ Lights for lighting up trees

    General Halloween
    A few years ago when I attended Nightmare New England (pro haunt attraction), they lit up a section of trees with a very cool lighting effect. I'll briefly describe it but I doubt I'll be able to find the device that produced it. It would shoot random white points of light at the canopy and then...
  4. Electronic/Software: Creating a cheap 5.1 surround sound system

    Halloween Props
    Hi, I would like to make a speaker system where voices seem to move around an area. As people walk up the driveway voices travels around them. Back in the bad old days I had an 8 track player and quadraphonic speaker system that played Dark Side of the Moon. I always loved it. Today I'm...
  5. Mechanical: Dave's Grave Digging Skeleton - Re-Engineered.

    Halloween Props
    VIDEO: https://youtu.be/fTJSfBQC-WI This a project I actually completed for Halloween 2017, but have been lax in finding the time to take some decent pics and shoot a video of it in action. I always loved the Grave-Digging Skeleton, but always wondered if I could re-engineer it in a new way...

  8. FS: Frightprops Pop Blaster + PicoBoo ONE controller + motion sensor

    For Sale/Trade By Individuals
    his is a great scare in a place where guests feel "safe" - startles them every time! $410 new - why buy new? Excellent condition - easy to program - works great! Needs an air compressor. Posting it cheaper here than on ebay (but it is listed there too) - $275 + shipping
  9. The Addams Family animated!

    Off-Topic Stuff
    Not sure how I missed this but here it is! I like the look of it but it just makes me miss Raoul Julia even more. Yes, John Astin was first & best & great but when it comes to the movies I feel like Raoul nailed it as did Angelica Houston. Not sure if I like Charlize Theron's voice as...
  10. Other: How to paint a Squawkers McCaw / faux fur?

    Halloween Props
    After seeing some great projects with it here I finally bought a Squawkers McCaw and the board to go with it from J-Man. The problem is that my theme is a spooky graveyard, nothing piratey. My solution is to turn Squakwers into a zombie parrot in a cage, but I'm not sure how to tackle paining...

  13. Light-O-Rama – It's Not Just for Christmas

    Tutorials and Step-By-Step
    In previous posts, I've often mentioned using Light-O-Rama hardware and software for Halloween displays. The following video isn't so much a tutorial as an introduction that may tempt some of you to add computerized control to your attractions. I've used only the company's most basic equipment...
  14. Retro-a-go-go Mummy GID mask

    Halloween Props
    A little while back I clicked on a thread someone had posted looking for a large (like 3-5 foot) skull mask. While doing a search to help out (think someone else posted about Retro-a-Go-Go in the thread) I ended up at Retro-a-Go-Go's website. Had been on it sometime back for a tiki retro item I...

    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. I also should have pulled the car out of the driveway before...

  17. Target -- 2019

    General Halloween
    Was in Target this week and saw these kind of cool Harry Potter-licensed lamps. The bulb sits down inside the base. For anyone doing a Potter theme though these might look great on two entrance columns for example. Didn't see the price on them and might be up on the website. They were refreshing...
