  1. Halloween Props
    My Menacing Molly from Spirit Halloween needs a new 'neck' gear that swings her head forwards and back (before she leans backwards). I've tried to contact Spirit Halloween several times over the last few months but I never received a reply from their support. I don't want to replace the whole...
  2. General Halloween
    We love the Halloween Forum. There are so many great ideas and suggestions. People answer our questions, and we get a chance to pass along what we've learned to fellow haunters far, far away. One thing we find fun to do when we’re taking a break is to visit a favorite main forum and click on the...
  3. General Halloween
    Hi guys, picked up a Gemmy Lightshow Illusion Projector (2018 product) that comes with 6 slides and finding all the slides are super tight to insert into the projector. Too late to return after holiday and do like it so wondering how to make the best of this. Also curious if others have had...
  4. Halloween Props
    Hey guys hows everyone? Cool forum, I've been doing the haunted house thing on off sense I was a kid in the 70s. We had a high school in my part of town that did one every year in their gym. So I grew up with them. Now my son works at them at Halloween. But the reason I'm here is I've been...
  5. Halloween Props
    Sorry all, I could not figure out how to rotate the pics. :( This year, my wife challenged me to create a theme based on a swamp or bayou. I started with some old fence panels turned on their side and attached. I added a porch of pallets and cut one pallet in half to create a dock. The...
  6. General Halloween
    So, I have been having more and more issues with people walking through the yard display to get pictures either with props or in my yard. If I had a section for that it's ok, and we will usually have one or two props easily accessible for this reason. However its getting worse over the years...
  7. General Halloween
    I've got the "official" video for our home haunt put together. I know I said the same thing last year, but man, it's going to be hard to top this year's display!
  8. Tutorials and Step-By-Step
    When I built our new witch hut I cut pieces of the side panels from our old one to create "pelts" that look like dried or tanned skins with human body parts embedded in them. I've had many questions and requests for tutorials on them, but since they were salvaged from an older work I don't...
  9. Halloween Props
    Hey guys I seen a post here about window projector material but I don't want to use a sheet. Also someone said NOT to use a frosted material. Im thinking of a white translucent vinyl, would that work and does anyone have some links to amazon for brands they have tested. I hate the effect the...
  10. Halloween Props
    I used to go all out for Halloween with one of my family members. We would prep and prop all year long to put out massive displays of pirates and ghosts and mummies. Unfortunately, this year, that family member is no longer around. I had already made the costumes (haunted toys/dolls) but now I...

  14. Halloween Props
    I've been reading a lot of forum and blog posts (across many sites) that are all variations on the theme of heating a glycerine and water mixture to create fog. In my tests over a small flame, I got very little fog from such a mixture until all of the water had evaporated, and then the heated...
  15. Party Ideas. Experiences and Recipes
    I made this over the weekend. It's not hard to do. Just use a few ingredients: blackberries, flour, butter, sugar, oats and black frosting. The addition of the spider web top makes for a fun Halloween treat. More Info: https://www.instructables.com/id/Blackberry-Spider-Web-Pie/
  16. Halloween Costume Ideas
    Hi all - been a while since I have posted - mostly I just lurk and see what wonderful stuff everyone else is doing. I thought I would pop in to get some ideas about the family theme for this year Twisted/Horror Alice in Wonderful. My daughter got to pick and this is what she wanted. She wants to...
  17. Tutorials and Step-By-Step
    For the past few weeks I’ve been trying to find the Platinum chiffon at Joanne’s. Today I finally found a store that had it, and a person working there who knew what it was. It turns out that although the website calls it Platinum, it’s now called Grey Velvet. Lucky for me, one worker at one...
  18. Halloween Props
    Does anyone know where I can buy prop stands? I’m having a hard time finding any online. I am referring to the tree stand type of prop indicated in the picture below. I bought a prop and it was missing the center piece that connects all of the feet together. I suppose if there are other types of...
  19. Halloween Props
    How do you go about using a stencil (that has all the letters on one stencil) and being able to do several letters one right after the other? With the wet letter just done I am having a hard time doing the next one, and so on. Also having trouble with the paint oozing under the stencil and so...
  20. Halloween Props
    i'm not sure if this is the proper place for this thread since i'm not using this just for halloween, so if anyone feels it should be moved, i'm okay with that. my wife and i have renovated our basement and we're wanting to put some LED strip lights along the ceiling. color-changing is strongly...
