    Hey team! Last yet at Home Goods I managed to score half a set of skeleton arm serving utensils for $5 and want to repurpose it into a punch bowl ladle using a pewter cup I picked up off Ebay. Question is, I want to curve the fingers of the hand around the cup. They don't have to be super...

    It is such a high from mid-October to the 31st. Emotions running constantly, the rush you get the week of Halloween, then of course, Halloween day is filled with such intense feelings....such a high with that high running the full gambit. The next morning when the high is gone, it is such a...

    OK, I think I am going to start a petition to change Halloween from October 31 to maybe sometime is summer. I am soooo sick and tired of getting it all set up then have a huge storm coming in. Tomorrow is set for massive rains and high and potential damaging winds. Gotta take it all down and...
  6. Wanted to Buy
    I've got a very nice Grim Reaper costume that I'm adding stuff to each year to make it better. My latex skeleton gloves rotted out and fell apart. I got a lot of great use out of them and I'm searching for another set. They went up to my elbows and had very long fingers but you were able to...

    I am looking to add a high speed motor to bang the lid on my coffin as a startle effect. Am thinking of making a cam to mound on the output shaft of the motor & adding a spring to the coffin lid to help close it quickly. Now.....where can I find either an AC or DC motor that fits that bill...

    Hello everyone! My name is Bailey. I hail from the great state of West Virginia. I have always loved Halloween and everything that goes with it. I worked at a costume shop during high school and was able to dress up as Michael Myers then stand outside the store scaring everyone who walked by. I...

    So I have this little hobby of having a collection of Halloween decorations. I've been doing this for so long that I know when I'm getting a great deal or it is a major rip off. I've noticed certain sites that I tend to earn gift cards for has a higher price on their Halloween collections when...

    Hi all, I am new to the forum! My family and I have hosted a haunted woods for some years now. My oldest son and his friends wanted to do one in 2007 and 2008, when they were in high school, they graduated, my son went into the Marines and his friends went to college or other branches of the...

    I highly recommend this movie. I wasn't so scary (for me anyways; my wife and little sister thought it was scary as hell) but the freakiness was at an all time high. Also, the really scary thing is the propensity for something like this happening is far too real. Check it out!!

    I wanted to say thank you to everyone that posts tutorials, pictures of their props for others to see and emulate; those who post suggestions, feedback, encouragement, etc. Without you all, people like me wouldn't know where to begin with trying to create something fun for the kids to enjoy...

    I am planning on building a couple of fog chillers this year and would like some advice. I am using standard 4" flexible dryer tubing and a Rubbermaid container. Is it advisable to start the tubing up high and loop it around so it comes out on the bottom or does it make a difference. Thanks for...

    Here’s my short explanatory video I did for the structure of a basic life-size static PVC prop I started using back in 2008 named after the costume. My aim was to make it a simple pose to make it look like a person in a costume. Note a cape fills out the silhouette. It does fool ToT’s. A young...

    This year for Halloween we're working on making a shooting gallery with nerf guns and a few interactive targets. As part of the gallery we need a table which will both be where the guns are anchored and where the kids will stand to shoot. My problem is I don't know how high to make it! I want...
