  1. Atmosphere Effects: Large garage door rear projection material

    Halloween Props
    I know this has been asked tons of times but no one ever comes back and say what worked the best for them. I have a opening of 7'x14' to cover. I was thinking of using this Carl's Gray Rear Projection Film - Rear Projector Screen Material (Low Light, Rear Projection) I could make a frame and use...
  2. Other: Monster Mud query

    Halloween Props
    Does anyone know if you can substitute ceramic wall tile cement for wall filler when making monster mud? I have got hold of a large tub of this stuff and I wondered if it was possible to use it for M.M?
  3. Haunt in a large party tent?

    General Halloween
    Hi everyone, here's what I have in mind. My garage is too small for a "garage haunt", and besides, it also serves as my workshop (never parked a car in there ever since we moved into the place). I do have a huge driveway, though (over 5 meter wide, 20 meter long), big enough for an 8x4 meter...
  4. Walmart Clearance Easter Candy Disguised for Halloween

    General Halloween
    Last year, I hit the Walmart Clearance shelves after Easter in search of half-priced candy for TOT. While most of it was packaged for Easter, I was able to get Sponge Bob Gummy Krabby Patties, Sixlets, Razzles, Nerds, and a large bag of Skittles/Starburst mix in regular colored packaging. I...

    Halloween Props
    I was looking for something to cast a large dinosaur image on our 2-story house's side wall when we set up for our dino haunt and can't wait to try out. It's 15W and hoping it will be bright enough to do what I want and still be creepy lighting. Just ordered it from Amazon. It's a set of...
  8. Mask totem

    General Halloween
    I love masks but storage can become an issue. I was on Spider Hilll's site a while back and noticed a fitting that was either new to their line or I had just missed previously. It's a slip cross fitting for 1 " PVC. Inspired me to build this. "][/URL] Here's a detail. Mounted on a wooden...

    I am trying to locate LARGE skeleton masks for my outdoor decorations. Just plain skull fronts, like you would wear as a face mask. Except much bigger, around 3 or so feet. Something like this: Color doesn't matter, as it will be painted. I was really hoping to find this in a thin...

  14. Mechanical: Advice for wiper motor and lateral motion

    Halloween Props
    I have this large wraith with outstretched hands, and I was thinking of hooking up a motor to thrust a zombie baby out of its abdomen in and out. This would be my first foray into DIY motor props and I could use some guidance. Take a look at the 14:14 mark of this video...
  15. Revenant Manor Halloween 2018: Witching Well

    General Halloween
    Halloween 2018 is all packed up and put away….all that is left to do is the annual ‘haunt in review’. We weren’t able to do as much as intended this year, as I broke my foot over the summer (ironically, while transporting a prop piece to the basement), and lost about 10 weeks of build time as...
  16. Video- My display

    General Halloween
    This was a fun year! I brought out some older props that I haven't used in some years. It was good to see them, lol. Next year I'll rotate in some other props I haven't used in a while. That's the good thing about having a large number of animatronics- you can rotate them each year and old ones...

    To get you up to speed, we are doing for the third time, a large haunted house for our town. We have an old cool looking "Depot". Used to be a place where trains dropped off products back in the day. We will have 7 evenly spaced "haunt rooms" Each room is 20 X 17 feet and will flow into each...
  18. Places to get free styrofoam

    General Halloween
    So most of us are always on the look out for free or really inexpensive material for making our props. I thought of several places where folks could possibly obtain free styrofoam big enough for tombstones, or building facades, or mausoleums, ...etc. Go and talk to your local stores that sell...
  19. Our Fifth and Final Year

    General Halloween
    This is the fifth season my wife and I have done the extreme decorating for Halloween. We started with ambitious goals and have added to it every year. Now, quite frankly, the amount of time it takes to set all of it up has become too much for us; not to mention the annual expenses associated...
  20. Static: First post here and first large propr build

    Halloween Props
    I have always been content in just modifying decorations and making costumes but this year took on my first large prop build. Decided to make a pumpkin sentinel like creature to put in my flagpole holder. Failed to take pictures along the way but got a lot of great info on the site. Here is...
