  1. 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...
  2. Pneumatic: Garage Mausoleum

    Halloween Props
    So, I've been kinda dormant with building for a while. This year I decided to go big or go home:) Early September I got the idea to do a crypt wall over the garage door, thanks to others on here. Well then I decided to up the anti a little bit and add a little "shock" factor. So, I started...

  4. Static: Question about size of mausoleum for FCG?

    Halloween Props
    I am already planning builds for next Halloween and one of the things I would like to build is a mausoleum with a flying crank ghost. My question is what is a good size for a FCG mausoleum? I was thinking of a 4' deep by 5' wide that would have a 3' wide door on one of the 5' sides. Would that...
  5. Static: Mausoleum/scary houses from kids' playhouses

    Halloween Props
    This year I added bulk to my cemetery display by placing 3 "mausoleums" in the background. They were made by repainting Little Tikes kids' playhouses. My only expense for this project was the spray paint, and the bleach. I was able to put out an ISO call on our local FB swap groups and got 3...
  6. Other: Halloween 2018: Revenant Manor Build

    Halloween Props
    I've been experiencing some issues when trying to create / update albums on the forum this year, so I figured instead of creating a build album this year, I might try a post instead. For 2018 to this point, we've added a new haunt sign, mausoleum, vine lanterns, and the 'witching well'. All...
  7. Mausoleums On a Tight Budget

    Tutorials and Step-By-Step
    Making props in our house is a combination of two things… a love of Halloween and a budget of a church mouse. It does take a bit of patience to find the right things for free or low cost, but it’s part of Halloween for us. Our treats are finding things we can use for props and our trick is...

    Halloween Props
    All: We are hoping to build a mausoleum for this years haunt. Anyone have plans, advice, ideas, pics? I've seen folks use insulation panels to build walls before. What do you coat or paint them with? I've used stucco mud before on insulation but it tends to chip off. Any advice would be...

  13. Mausoleum - Crypt Portability/Storage

    Halloween Prop Building Group
    I would like to build a Mausoleum - Crypt but my issue is portability and storage throughout the year. I am also a one man operation so it needs to be easily assembled / disassembled but also not fall apart when it is being displayed the week or two prior to Halloween. Any ideas or links on...

  15. Summer Clearance for Repurposing 2016

    General Halloween
    I don't know that we've ever had a thread like this before, but I thought that it could be useful. Maybe we can direct one another to items to repurpose. I myself am looking for a small light-neutral colored "shade tent" that's at least 6-7 ft tall, but will only fit about four chairs inside...

    Off-Topic Stuff
    Hi fellow Halloween Haunters, I'm building a new Mausoleum. I was going to name it "Renfield" from Bram Stokers Dracula but then I thought Eh....Maybe not. My other mausoleum is named after Dr. Marcus from Resident Evil. I'm looking for something catchy with little luck. Any suggestions ? A...
  19. Prop Showcase: Most Successful Addition?

    Halloween Props
    So after working diligently on my mausoleum facade over our screened in porch complete with ghosts and ghouls being projected from inside... it turns out that the goofy projection of the singing jack-o-lanterns was the most wildly popular. As in parents yelling, begging, and finally dragging...
