  2. Lakeside Collection Grabbing Hands

    For Sale/Trade By Individuals
    I found TWO sets of these in THE GREAT PURGE OF 2019! Mine are grey though, not flesh colored like the ones in the pic. I forgot I even had them & need the room. They are still in their boxes too. I had to open one set to check to make sure there was a left & right but they have never been...

  4. Tombstone Flipper, Spinner Follow-Up

    Tutorials and Step-By-Step
    In the summer I posted two proof-of-concept videos about pneumatic props that could switch back and forth between being Christmas or Halloween decorations. I wanted them for a "Christmas vs. Halloween" display during trick-or-treat. I thought I should show the end result--not great but...

    Halloween Props
    I posted some 2018 Videos http://www.snydercentral.com/halloween/H2018/H2018.htm It was the saddest start ever but it got better. The old standby props saved the day. The new stuff all got crammed into the garage. We woke up the next day with the Flu that made packing the stuff up extra fun...

    Halloween Props
    I bought the 3 Classic Halloween Monsters this year through Home Depot (Werewolf, Drac & Frankenstein). They are IR props that work off of each other, but I have no idea how to set them off without having to press the button on each of their arms. Is there a hack to hook them up to step pads or...

  13. 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...

  15. Alexa the sound box!

    General Halloween
    Probably no surprise but you can put those mp3 and cd players away, Alexa to the rescue! Have some pc speakers laying around - even better. If you have Amazon prime just ask her to play scary sounds, thunderstorm, or Halloween music. I figured on the Halloween music play list but the scary...

    I am searching for a great Halloween video clip (or brief movie) about a spooky house. It started with you waiting at the door to deliver a pizza, as I recall it. Does anyone know where I can locate the clip? Greetings and happy horrors! All the best, Ralph
