  1. General Halloween
    All, I humbly come before you all to ask for a birthday favor. I'd like to have a Ouija board birthday cake and I have the image saved but if possible, I'd like the board to read "Happy 48th Birthday Wes'. I have ZERO knowledge of image editing software and I'm hoping one of you can help me...

    We've been hosting adult-only Halloween parties for years and have not been able to get in enough scares! We are looking to up our game this year to the max!!! We do a good job putting guests on edge with creepy lighting, sounds, and decor; sometime even paying a few people to help us with the...

    Hello Fellow Haunts! So this was my big project for last year. I added a back row to my archway as well, but I wanted to create something new and exciting! I built these two Jacko Sentinels to guard my back yard during the October season. They are built with a PVC frame and base. I used...

    I'm planning a Leota crystal ball effect this year. I created this Leota effect which I'll project onto a blank head inside a crystal orb. This projection starts out black as the Ghost host beckons Leota to help materialise the spirits, She appears, does her thing, and vanishes as the Ghost...

    i dunno how many know about Rucus Studios but he makes some absolutely beautiful Halloween art pieces that, unfortunately, are waaaay beyond my budget. However....he has a kickstarter going to raise money to print these beautiful Halloween cards if anyone is interested. I bought 2 decks...

  8. Halloween Props
    Hello All, Not sure if this is the right place to post, but seemed to fit best. I've picked up an Antari ICE 100 low ground fog machine and the pump works, but is the devil to get primed and once it does, it doesn't look like it has the flow it should. I've completely cleaned the heater block...
  9. Halloween Props
    Hi! I'm new to this forum, and I'm looking to create a PVC armature that's animated. I know there's a website that makes them, but $150 for just the frame is pretty steep. I know a friend of mine suggested a company called Witch Doctor, but I simply cannot find the website anywhere. She said she...
  10. General Halloween
    Well it took long enough to get this together since taking everything down makes me depressed lol.. But here it is! My home haunt for 2018! We had about 500 or so walk through the haunted house not including the ones that were too scared to make it all the way;) I split it into 4 parts for...
  11. General Halloween
    So, I have been having more and more issues with people walking through the yard display to get pictures either with props or in my yard. If I had a section for that it's ok, and we will usually have one or two props easily accessible for this reason. However its getting worse over the years...
  12. Halloween Props
    Just thought I'd share what we've been working on! My fiancée is an English professor and I'm a full-time grad student so we generally only have so much time to work on things during the year while we're exhausted, but we've got a pretty respectable start! Most of the tombstones are from last...

    I'm looking for some froggy's freezin frog and regular fog juice. Found some ok prices after extensive searching, but wanted to know if anyone has a secret cheap source for froggy's? Shipping is wha makes this expensive since a gallon is heavy. I see amazon has it, but was hoping there might be...

    I made this over the weekend. It's not hard to do. Just use a few ingredients: blackberries, flour, butter, sugar, oats and black frosting. The addition of the spider web top makes for a fun Halloween treat. More Info: https://www.instructables.com/id/Blackberry-Spider-Web-Pie/

    I want to do a "open air" Hollusion, meaning just out in the yard. I assume I need to two stakes that I'll paint matte black and then attach the Hollusion matierial to the stacks. On AtmosFX website they say a little bit of ambient light BEHIND the Hollusion screen makes it look better. But...

    It makes me sad that this is becoming the norm. I need a hug!
  18. General Halloween
    I figure that I only set up around 30% of what I own. I am on my own and can only display what I can manage to set up and take down in one day. On the bright side, it makes for a good change-up every year. On the other hand, I have some great stuff that I hate to see sit in storage. How much...

    A student of mine showed me a pic of a jason mask. He went on to tell me he takes a white hockey mask and makes them for some extra cash. I said get me one ASAP! I love it, how cool!
