  6. Test Corn Maze - Fox Hollow Farms, FL

    Haunts, Gatherings and Conventions
    I figured I'd start a thread for our upcoming test corn maze that will be planted soon. This will be the first time we will be doing a corn maze, and we figured that 2018 would be a good a time as any to get started. Our farm isn't a year old yet and we have a ton of other non-Halloween related...

  8. Coccon Victim $10

    A place called the party bell is having a 50% off or more sale. I picked up a half dozen cocoon victims. I always have some sort of spider set-up and I can add them to my maze. Not really sure how big they are from the pic, I am hoping that they are at least three feet tall. But at $10, I really...

  10. Halloween Observations 2017

    General Halloween
    1. About 90% of kids who came to the house were in costume this year, which is a marked change from the past few years where maybe a third would be in costume and the rest in street clothes. 2. This was the second year that Target screwed me on the big bags of candy. It looks like they are fun...
  11. Halloween Meets Law and Order

    General Halloween
    We finished getting our haunted maze done in time, and started getting visitors about 5:30. As usual, there were some kids who were afraid to go through and lots of parents as well. About 8:00, a local police officer pulled up in her cruiser. She's been coming through the maze for the past...

    Fellow Haunters, As I've intimated a few times on other discussion threads, I am doing a haunted maze for my local gaming club this year to be an entrance into our annual Halloween Party.

  15. Prop Showcase: Freddy's Furnace Infinity illusion

    Halloween Props
    I've been working on this for a few weeks now. I was inspired by the infinity effect used by BIGANT on the hearse. I have always wanted to do the whole bottomless pit effect, but put my own twist on it. So my idea was to create an infinity furnace in "freddy's world" I am not quite done yet...

    General Halloween
    Hi guys, just thought I'd post a short video of my maze from this year. Had mostly everything working in time for Halloween (although I did work on it for two days straight in the lead up). Video is a bit dark and I only have a very small space to work with, but you get the idea :)...
