  1. Hi from a longtime lurker

    Member Introduction
    Hi, everybody :) Longtime lurker of this site, but my husband and I are trying to really grow our yard display, and I decided to finally get more active in this community that has really inspired me the past few years. We've been starting to do more homemade props recently, and I've learned a...
  2. Haunters: The Art of the Scare (aka Haunters The Movie)

    General Halloween
    Just watched this on Netflix (finally). I was surprised I couldn't dig up a thread on it here on the forums. I was so excited to see another documentary on haunters... A second chance to maybe show off that we all aren't completely crazy. Nope, it mainly focused on one crazy guy with his...
  3. 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...

  5. Prop Showcase: Haunted tree reveal!

    Halloween Props
    Haunted tree reveal!:D I was cutting it short close on my tree! I was literally finishing the touch ups right as my husband was putting it together yesterday!

  6. How did your party go?

    Party Ideas. Experiences and Recipes
    My husband and I had a Halloween game night last night! We had invited five people, but two (roommates) were unable to make it due to being ill. Lots of leftovers (ham sandwiches, mashed potatoes, meatballs, chips, pop - the chip dip and veggies all went, though!). As for the games, we played...
  7. Full Size Candy Bars?

    General Halloween
    Hi all!! My husband and I have been having this debate. Full size bars or fun size? I usually give out 3 pieces of the fun size stuff.......and who has a clue how much of it I eat. The way I see it based on 3 pieces plus my consumption it would be a wash money wise. What do you give out?
  8. Static: Just made this from a box from Kohl's...

    Halloween Props
    My husband got an order from Kohl's yesterday and I couldn't help noticing that the box seemed to be tombstone shaped so of course I made it into a tombstone to stand up in my coffin. A little black paint, a little of that stone texture spray, some clear acrylic sealant and a few styrofoam...

  10. Prop Showcase: Talonrazor's 2017 Haunt

    Halloween Props
    This year, our haunt was really fun to put together. There were so many projects I had in mind, but didn't have time to build. It's weird how you get something in your mind that you want to create and it ends up taking way longer than you planned to actually build. Anyways, I wanted to share...
  11. Captain Spaulding clown costume 2018

    Halloween Costume Ideas
    The only definite plan for 2018 is that my husband wants to dress as Captain Spaulding from House of 1000 corpses. I've decided to do the hat and clown shoes out of paper mache, but what material is used for clown costumes? Is it satin? I know there's is a commercial version of the costume...

  14. Anyone else pull their creepy clown?

    General Halloween
    So every year, the first week of October, I have a creepy clown stand by the street and wave at cars, to remind them to look at our yard. It really freaks people out. Sometimes he is on the roof. Sometimes he is on a straw bale under a tree. And we have been doing this for YEARS. Sometimes...

    We run a charity haunt to raise funds for the Canadian Cancer Society. To keep the crowds entertained while waiting in the line ups, we surprise them with this show. My Husband and I are not involved in the planning. An awesome local high school group does all the choreography. What are your...
