  1. Haunters nearby you?

    General Halloween
    Hey all. Just curious, have any of your neighbors started decorating “big” after you started, or after you moved in? I’m sure some of you are lucky enough to live on the same block as other haunters, but I’m curious if anyone here has inspired another nearby to start their own excessive...
  2. My birthday nightmare :(

    General Halloween
    I was having a less than happy birthday on Sunday and it only got worse. I was pet sitting for a friend and I got the call from my neighbor around 7:15pm... my garage was on fire. Halloween forum friends... I lost 34 years of collecting Halloween stored in my garage and I have nothing Halloween...
  3. Hello from the DMV!

    Member Introduction
    Hello! My neighbor and I have hosted a haunt going on 9 years now. This year's theme will be the final arctic voyage of Frankenstein's ship. Just returned from Pensacola where the Mardi Gras parade was chock full of ideas for large-scale ship props! Halloween already on the brain...
  4. Do you have any limits regarding taste and decency when creating your yard haunts?

    General Halloween
    As with any decorating, certain judgement calls come up when creatively expressing ourselves through our Halloween haunts. I bring this up because I've only been having fun with this for a handful of years, yet I've already run into quandaries. Just in the first and second years in this...
  5. Static: Thingamabob. (I haven't decided what it is yet...)

    Halloween Props
    I've been trying to be good and stay focused on the main project ( http://www.anunorthodoxhalloween.com/blog/wp-content/gallery/2018-buildup/C3BD7866-6DF1-40E7-98C5-997376B42AB1.jpeg?i=1209935753 ), but you know when we pulled the tree out there was no way I wasn't saving any interesting bits of...

    General Halloween
    I don't know if this is the right place to post this but want to share something funny that just happened. my neighbor just called the police because some put fake spiders on the sidewalk
  7. Toy Story 20 Years

    Off-Topic Stuff
    We have had ABC on tonight watching the Toy Story Special celebrating 20 years. Really?? Already?? Enjoyed it then and watching the movie now and still enjoying it. I think Andy's neighbor Sid turned out to be a future Horror movie director LOL. He created some real nightmare toys. Favorite was...
  8. When boo'ing a house goes terribly wrong!!!

    General Halloween
    One point for the squirrel. My friend across the street texted me this earlier this morning of her next door neighbor (the ones we boo'd) It stole a treat from a boo we left on our neighbor's porch last night. I am pretty sure the chocolate is gone, too.
  9. "The Competition": Show us your NEIGHBORS!

    General Halloween
    I want to be very clear on this: I do NOT view decorating as a competition. Halloween, or C word. We have a new neighbor moved in just around the corner. "We're going to be your competition this year!" were literally their first words to me. This was good natured ribbing, to be honest...
  10. first year success!!!

    General Halloween
    Ok...I'll be honest. I wasn't really feeling Halloween this year. First Halloween in this city/house, lots of recent stress, and just super busy. But we set up any way. Oh wow! Yesterday afternoon when I was putting the finishing details in the display, our neighbor across the street came over...
  11. New Neighbor

    General Halloween
    We have a neighbor a couple of houses down from us who's lived there for less than a year. She had company tonight & they were hanging out in her driveway. At one point one of her visitors walked up the street, paused for a bit & then walked back. I thought it was a bit odd. Then I realized what...
  12. Weird thing my neighbor gave me. Now what?!?

    General Halloween
    This morning my neighbor, sweet lady in her 70's, came over and brought me..... wait for it.......................... a pair of prosthetic legs!:eek: Her husband picked them up at an estate sale (nothing creepy about that, right?) and thought I'd be able to do something with them! I feel like I...
  13. A Hallowe'en Pledge

    General Halloween
    I had an idea... An inexpensive way to spread the Hallowe'en spirit to your neighbors. If you can afford it, I urge you to do it. Here it is. Buy one package of fake cobwebs, even if it's from the dollar store, for each of the neighbors on your block and place it at their front door or in...
