  1. WItch Tavern Sign - Need more inspiration and ideas

    General Halloween
    Picked this sign up at a thrift store a while ago. I want to make a witch themed tavern sign but need some inspiration. I'm going for a historical/creepy vibe rather than whimsical. Some ideas I've come up with are: "The Confession House" "Half Hanged Mary" "Oyer and Terminer" I would also...
  2. 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...
  3. FREE - Bottom half of broken life-size skeleton (Tempe, Arizona)

    For Sale/Trade By Individuals
    This very unfortunate thing happened to my 60-inch skeleton companion, Vlad, last night. As I was loading things into a van to move, I picked him up by his spine, and the poor guy's spine just snapped in two. He was in a storage unit without air conditioning for quite some time a few years ago...
  4. Starting over-best way to build flats ?

    REQUEST FOR TUTURIALS GO HERE
    Hello Forum, I have been off line for some time as in 2017 the local town made us an offer we could not refuse on the homestead. Long story short we relocated to a much smaller property and 2018 was our first year in the new place. I managed to get my yard set up and the neighbors and kids...
  5. Cheap Projector at Amazon

    General Halloween
    Just saw this on Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0165ZJ0VI/?tag=dealnewscom&m=ATVPDKIKX0DER Not sure how bright it is, but with all the stuff that's included, it seems like a not half bad deal.
  6. In Search of Half-Skulls

    Wanted to Buy
    Hello! Anyone know a decent source for a bunch of half skulls. You know, the sort missing their lower jaw? They always convey that sense that the skull has sat around for a while. An online source I'm fond of ordering from had some for under $5-a-pop, but ran out. Attached is a pic to give...
  7. Mechanical: Asking for help on how to prevent motors from burning out

    Halloween Props
    I rely on so many of you to guide my prop builds, and this thread will be no different. This year two of my props had motors that failed, and I'm pretty sure it was our fault for asking them to do something they weren't meant to do. I'm hoping that with a bit of guidance, we can set them up...
  8. Items for sale

    For Sale/Trade By Individuals
    I have some mini LED spot lights that I would like to get rid of. I made to many of these a few years back and now I need to reduce storage – not that they take up a lot of room. There are different types. All work and ready for a 9v battery. If you like, they can be converted to a power...

  10. Static: Where to buy "mean" looking skulls?

    Halloween Props
    I'm a fan of the bag of skulls available for 10 dollars at Home Depot, personally. And some of the styrofoam half skulls (no jaw) at Michael's. But what if I'm looking for something a bit more sinister looking? You know, exaggerated browbones and more of a scowl expression? Does anyone know...
  11. Hello from Alberta, Canada!

    Member Introduction
    Been lurking here for awhile and decided to sign up so I could maybe post some of my stuff for Halloween. Been doing yearly haunts now with about half a dozen animatronics. I never seem to leave myself enough time to do the custom builds but it all works out in the end and the kids love it. Will...
  12. Other: Scarabelle Clown Puppet

    Halloween Props
    Time out for some humor re: "It looked a lot bigger in the photo." I found a deal on the Scarabelle Clown Puppet and while waiting for delivery I fetched a wiper motor from storage and was preparing to make a beefy crank ghost type frame to animate the life size clown puppet. Opps. My bad. I...
  13. Treat Hand-out by Age?

    General Halloween
    Every year, I give away a mix of candy, toys and combination goodie bags. Since I pick up toy deals as I find them, there is a wide variety of types and size. Thus, I am always trying to figure out the best way to hand out the very varied treats. This year, I am thinking of filling several...
  14. Help with a torn face costume idea.

    Halloween Costume Ideas
    Howdy! Thought I'd sign up here to see if anyone has any advice for a costume idea I'm working on, rather than just blunder on by my myself. This year I'm planning to dress as Sutter Cane, from In The Mouth of Madness, specifically the scene below. Most of the costume is pretty simple, but I...

    Member Introduction
    Hey there, Kaz here from Melbourne Australia. Have done a variety of parties over the years, but last year was our first bigger public trick or treat haunt. We had a zombie scare area, a blood room, a witches corridor and a child friendly glow in the dark radiation zone. Turns out more...

    Hi everyone - this is my first post here after lurking for several years. I'd like to say thanks for all of the inspiration and ideas. This is a great place. The column on the left has a moving leering skeleton that I built in 2016. This year, I made a new column, with some modifications and...
  19. 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...
