  1. Moving in October

    General Halloween
    Normally around this time of year I am full of excitement and in the full swing of things getting props ready to be displayed October 1st. Unfortunately I am moving on October 25th L. Not worth setting the display up at my current house and not enough time once I move into the new house, truly...

    Midwest Haunters Convention
    I just saw that the Midwest Haunters Convention is going to be in Chicago this year, this should be an interesting change? The Pre-convention bus tours will be different! I just wonder how people are going to react, I have a feeling some are going to like the move while others are going to...

  5. Boo Who's Rain Drenched Haunt

    General Halloween
    Couldn't put much out with steady rain all day and night - so I relied heavily on lighting and lots of movement. Used my Shiatsu's to "float" jack-o-lanterns in the upper windows and move my old scary lady in her antique wheelchair under cover of the porch. Had my fogger near the skellie...
  6. Tiki Themed Halloween 2018

    General Halloween
    Here are the videos of my Tiki Themed Haunt. There were supposed to be animations (a creep jumping out of the Tiki Bar and a moving Tiki skeleton) but I did not have time to get those working, had computer glitches and the tiki poles being the main attraction took priority. Also fog was...
  7. Failing Store Bought Props

    General Halloween
    Seems like as time goes on, I'm having more and more of my store bought props starting to fail. Mostly not lighting up, not moving or activating properly. One of my fave props, a Nosferatu-like hanging bat, went out right after the first season I bought him. I still hang him up, but I hate that...
  8. Mechanical: Spirit Halloween Grave Digger Repair

    Halloween Props
    Hi All, I have the retired Spirit Halloween Grave Digger prop and it needs some repair. 2 issues: 1) The plastic piece that holds his head in place must have broke, and I can't find anything that will repair it (his head moves side to side and tilts, so can't glue) 2) His arm is supposed to...

  14. Home Depot giant spider on sale for $150.

    Coupons, Discounts and Promotions
    On-line. Usually $250. I was hoping he would get down to $125, but I think it likely that this is the lowest he's gonna go (save perhaps some last second close-out of a few, which I tend to doubt as this was a popular prop and will likely be back - speculation), as we are getting close to 2018...

  17. ANIMATED/MOVING/ROTATING Harry potteresque haunted tree prop

    Halloween Props
    I posted this in the Halloween tree thread, but because I suspect many of you who don't put up a christmas-style Halloween tree wouldn't see it, I want to make sure you knew this was out there. I bought this tree at At Home ($99) and even returned stuff to make sure I got it. My mom, who likes...
