  1. Static: NBC yard

    Halloween Props
    After I moved here and produced my first Halloween yard my neighbors asked what I was going to do for Christmas. I had no idea that I moved onto a road where everyone did Christmas displays. So I slowly transitioned into a Nightmare Before Christmas theme. Each year I just make or add one...
  2. Pneumatic: Pneumatic Slenderman Prop Build

    Halloween Props
    Hey Haunters! So I took a much needed break after the season ended but I finally finished my video about my slender man prop. He's motion activated, runs on pneumatics and was a huge hit! He leans forward suddenly and his arms lunge out at you while he plays a sound effect from one of his video...

  4. Static: What to do with garage doors?

    Halloween Props
    Hi guys, I'm just wondering what you all do to cover your garage doors? Last year I bought photography back drops and taped them on, they were a huge hit, the parents loved taking photos of their kids in front of them.

  9. Weather played a huge factor for setup

    General Halloween
    We always set up our display over Labor Day weekend and it is ready to turn the lights on on Monday night. Well for the first time that I remember the weather has put a huge damper on the set up. It rained the entire weekend and at this point we only have about half of the display up and none...

  11. Haunted Washington

    Paranormal and the Unexplained
    Hello fellow creatures. When I lived in Everett Washington in the Pacific Northwest I had some friends who loved the paranormal. I told some stories of my past and they were game to go on an adventure when I told them I found a website that listed "haunted" sites near us. So one night we set...
  12. Post-Halloween Letdown?

    General Halloween
    Is it just me, or do others notice this; you plan and work and focus on October 31st for months. Finally it arrives, you go all out, have a great time, lotsa laughs, then take everything done and stow it away. Then what? I've always felt leone what like a semi-deflated balloon for the first two...

    Haunts, Gatherings and Conventions
    Went to The Darkness earlier and it was really fun, along with Silo X. More than likely going to Creepyworld on Thursday. I went last year the weekend of Halloween and it was a huge mistake as it was obviously very busy.

  18. How to haunt a flower garden?

    General Halloween
    I have a new part of the yard to haunt this year. Previous years this was all huge bushes, we finally removed them this year, built the trellis and replanted shrubs and flowers. I'd like to put a cementery over here with a skeleton horse/rider in the middle, but I do not want to take a chance of...
  19. Static: HUGE SPIDER PROP but I need to retire the old girl

    Halloween Props
    Built a HUGE SPIDER 15 years ago and she has been in every one of my haunts. But I am thinking of making a new one, maybe one strong enough to HANG on the side of the house. Currently she is made of 1/2" EMT electrical conduit covered in foam pipe insulation and FAUX fur. Her body is carved...
