    General Halloween

    Tutorials and Step-By-Step
    Hi all, longtime haunter first time post: This is a quick eye movement test I did of some eyes I made (these were a junk pair that I had used for a sculpting blank).

  6. Static: Friendly competition

    Halloween Props
    Hello all, A fellow haunter and I decided to modify an existing store bought prop and because we are both competitive with each other, of course it had to be a competition, lol. We both took a store bought skeleton dog and modified it however we wanted, ironically both doing a sort of zombie...

    Halloween Props
    Hello and good day! Ok, so I ran out of time. I'm just going to blame it on my cats. I have a ton of rescue kitties, and it seems it's one emergency after another with them. So! I saw an idea from Pumpkinrot that I really liked that he/she did a variant several years. There's 3 characters...

    General Halloween
    I'm working on some things to add to my Halloween web site and even after much research I'm not having much luck, have any of you come across any information on when Haunters started bringing cemeteries into their Halloween displays, how that got started?

    General Halloween
    Hey guys as build season gets into full swing I tend to get all caught up in my projects. I find it can be pretty easy to get stressed juggling your actual life and haunter life at times so I find it helpful to reflect on why we do what we do. I made a video and I talk about early halloween...
  15. Single and Helpless

    General Halloween
    Ha! No... not like THAT. I mean in the Haunter way! :D I was wondering how many folks here are lone haunters doing it all (or most) on their own... even if you are married or part of a family. Over the years, I've found just about as many pros as cons. Pros: Never having to sneak in...

  20. Do people approach you with questions about death?

    Off-Topic Stuff
    The content may differ, but the introductory words are always hesitant, and always the same: "Can you help me? I don't know who else to ask." Introducing children to the concept of death. Funeral customs. Cremation and "non-traditional" body disposal practices. Embalming procedures. Death care...
