  1. Pneumatic: Can this be made into a pneumatic prop?

    Halloween Props
    I found this chest in neighbor's trash this morning, and I was wondering if my creature dude could be made to slowly come out of the chest as the lid opens? Creature is made of heavy foam and latex, and I'd have to shave a couple inches off the rear for him to fully fit. Even then, his head...
  2. Shallow Grave Cemetery 2018 - Garden of Souls

    General Halloween
    Thy soul shall find itself alone. Mid dark thoughts of the gray tombstone. Not one, of all the crowd, to pry into thine hour of secrecy. The spirits of the dead who stood in life; before thee are again. In death around thee, and their will shall overshadow thee...

  4. Local Spirit Halloween - Not So Much Spirit

    General Halloween
    I know the local Spirit Franchisees deal with alot of BS for a month and a half, but it's a shame they would just rather throw the displays away than make some extra $. Was in the store in the morning, bought some display animatronics and asked what they would do with the windmill, etc if they...
  5. Tampa FL: lite F/X fogger ACC skulls etc

    For Sale/Trade By Individuals
    Hey guys, I need some quick cash due to a family matter, and since I haven't built a haunt in 5 years or so, thought I'd toss up for sale some of the stuff I have left over. I'm willing to meet or deliver anywhere in the Tampa/St. Pete/ Plant City area Monday or Tuesday (I have to leave...

  8. Your Halloween weather; what's it looking like?

    General Halloween
    Two weeks out and a bit early to tell but what's your long range forecast look like? We're 54/45 with morning showers. I could live with that as long as it's in the morning.

  10. Looking to buy Tuesday Morning Woodland Witch

    Wanted to Buy
    I am looking to buy the woodland witch that is currently in Tuesday Morning. She is gray and green and she has a staff with an owl on top of it. I'm willing to pay for the witch, shipping and a finder's fee. Like the one in the middle. Pic isn't mine
  11. Everything is gone!

    General Halloween
    My yard is clear, everything is down and it's back to normal. Of course, the garage is full and we still have to pack everything away which we'll do this weekend. How long does everyone leave their stuff up? I saw that the few houses that were decorated were largely down this morning around...
  12. 'tis the season

    General Halloween
    i've never made tombstones, but in the past i've often used the cheap foam tombstones that are about a foot or so tall that you get at dollar tree or other places. i told my wife recently that i wasn't going to use those anymore because they don't stand up and they break and they're generally...

    Member Introduction
    Hi everyone. Just a new homeowner here looking for Halloween ideas. I make the decisions now, and I've always wanted to go big! (On a side note, what happened to my first post? I posted a thread in props early this morning, and it vanished)
  14. Haunters live in their own world or island isolated from other haunters

    General Halloween
    It occurred to me a few times over the years that with all the Halloween products sold from Spirit, Target, Home Depot just in my home town...all the pumpkins, full sized figures, tombstones, lights and smoke machines.....each year....that I really never get to see any of it in action. I do my...

  16. I really don't understand people sometimes

    Off-Topic Stuff
    Craigslist can be a great way to buy/sell stuff but I don't understand why a seller treated me badly today. I contacted them yesterday afternoon for 3 Halloween blow molds within 4 hours of the posting. Seller said I was the first to contact them & she would hold them for me until I could get...
  17. My Saturday morning visitor .,

    Off-Topic Stuff
    Saturday morning was open for Archery season here. As I sat and watched the sun rise from my blind, this little guy came lumbering in to eat his fill of corn. :D Maybe 80 - 90 lbs, really goofy little bear. He hung with me all morning, so no deer came in, but it was fun to watch him. Love being...
  18. Tuesday Morning Stores - 2016 Halloween

    General Halloween
    I've seen a few people mention that their Tuesday Morning store was starting to get a few Halloween things in but no one apparently has started a new season thread so here goes. Had to pass by a Tuesday Morning on my way to buy the Spell Book from a Hallmark store today in the San Jose area so...
