  1. Would you hand out comics on Halloween?

    General Halloween
    I write scary comics for kids (primarily ages 7 to 12), and I've been giving out copies of my comics on Halloween for years. This year, I'm planning to launch a Kickstarter campaign to fund a much larger print run of small-size, black and white editions. It's my way of testing the waters to...

  4. Unusual Handouts

    General Halloween
    So, candy is the obvious favorite for handing out at Halloween, but I know of an online magic shop with decent prices on all those cheesy gags and jokes from when I was little. Thus, along with candy, we also give out crap like trick squirt lighters; Chinese finger traps; the trusty...

    SPFX ZOMBIE MASK AND SLEEVES: 1150 SHIPPED IN CONUS These were purchased a number of years ago, used a few times and painstakingly stored in a climate/UV controlled environment. The mask is in great condition and wears snug to the face as form-fitting silicone masks do. The arms are also...
  9. Electronic/Software: Convert piezo sound sensor to PIR (HC-SR501)

    Halloween Props
    I just started getting into hacking props this year. Maybe next year I'll try my hand a my own custom props. Anyway... Last year, I bought the Rising Reaper on clearance at Wal-Mart. It runs off of 3 AA batteries. I dislike battery operated props, so I converted it to AC power by simply using a...
  10. The first (and probably last) Ghostbusters Halloween train!

    General Halloween
    Been working on this idea for a while. I've taken an old Ecto 1 remote controlled car with lights and siren that a guy modified to add more lights and wanted to mount it to one of my trains for Halloween. The trick was it had to be high enough to get around the other trains since I've got 3...
  11. Only house in our neighborhood decorated for Halloween!

    General Halloween
    My wife and I went out looking the other night...nothing. It was a bit disappointing - the neighborhood has grown up over the years but there are still some kids around. We, on the other hand, stand out like a light house in a fog bank. We figure the neighbors all talk about us, but I'd rather...
  12. Prop Showcase: Skeleton

    Halloween Props
    Been out of the Halloween spirit for a few years. This year, just now, I think I'll be back into it. It's too late for 2018 but I'll be back next year. Here is a home made skeleton I made and kept from a few years back. We would put on a haunted house for our town and the cost was $1 or one...
  13. Halloween Vandalism

    General Halloween
    Our neighborhood has been targeted by car prowlers since late last year, and now they- or another group- have incorporated Halloween vandalism, mostly stealing pumpkins off porches (and driving them a couple miles away to smash them :S), but also messing with people's props- so far, no reports...
  14. Donna The Dead animatronic

    For Sale/Trade By Individuals
    Rare 2006/07 animatronic figure. Still works, has original cord and box (but lost the outside graphic). Moves, but some sort of balance issue with the swaying body action. The belt that operates the action is still there and working when I filmed the vid, just had to hold her hand to get her to...
  15. Prop Showcase: Haunted tree 🌲 progress

    Halloween Props
    :cool:iSo I’m am almost done with the top part of my tree. I don’t think I’m going to have time to paint it before Halloween but since I used the brown butcher paper, I don’t mind as much. I was having s difficult time getting the trunk texture and after some helpful tips and experimenting, I...
  16. Prop Showcase: Hocus Pocus sketchbook

    Halloween Props
    Hi everybody! A while ago, my wife asked me if I could make a replica of the spellbook from the movie "Hocus Pocus". It shouldn't be just a prop, it also should be an actual sketchbook. I made a video of the entire build process, and managed to edit it into a 20-minute video: I used a kraft...

  20. Scarecrow Sounds

    Halloween Costume Ideas
    I have a work in progress scarecrow mask and I also ordered one from Grim Stitch Factory. I want to play audio under the mask or under my clothes by push button, something like a switch that will be in my hand. I can wire something up with an arduino but it may be quicker to just buy...
