  1. Neighbors who are complete A**holes

    Off-Topic Stuff
    Seems like there's always some complete A**hole in every sub. But why do they always end up being my neighbors? A few years ago we were fortunate to be able to by a house for my daughter while she attended college. It was a nice little house in a huge sub, but still close to campus. Almost...
  2. 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...
  3. Where were the kids?

    General Halloween

    Welcome to the Scariest Show on Earth - 2018! So we change our theme every year - which I don't recommend because the neighbors now EXPECT something new and different!

  6. Only house in our neighborhood decorated for Halloween!

    General Halloween
    My wife and I went out looking the other night...nothing. It was a bit disappointing - the neighborhood has grown up over the years but there are still some kids around. We, on the other hand, stand out like a light house in a fog bank. We figure the neighbors all talk about us, but I'd rather...

    General Halloween
    We bought a new house in January and getting ready to setup for this year next weekend. i am sure a lot of people have been here, but nervous for the new neighborhood to see what we do. Not only hoping it goes over well, but the yard is so much different really don't know where to start or how...
  9. Static: Garage mausoleum with AtmosFX in 42" TVs

    Halloween Props
    Hi all! I've been meaning to get back on here, but I've been so busy building stuff. Anyway, now that I'm finished with my latest idea, I thought I'd post some pics and videos. Since I already have two 42' TVs with media players that I use in my outdoor Christmas decorations, I knew I needed to...
  10. Wonder Woman Costume

    Halloween Costume Ideas
    Last year, my son, our dog, and I, were the PJ Masks for Halloween. All of our adult neighbors thought I was the devil, not Owlette from the PJ Masks. This year, my son wants to be Spiderman, and wants me to be Wonder Woman. I don't need my neighbors seeing me in a miniskirt costume. Do you...
  11. Need help with a Christmas project.

    Off-Topic Stuff
    After having so much fun building stuff for this year's Halloween I thought I'd dive right in and start building stuff for Christmas as well. I've already received the go-ahead from my wife and my neighbors so now it's on to the execution. Here's my idea: I want to build a train that goes from...

  13. Anyone else just now starting?

    General Halloween
    This the first day that I have actually had the free time to start my yard haunt. UGHH!!!!! My neighbors were probably wondering what the heck was going on. The Jehovah Witness neighbors were probably disappointed to see the tombstones go up today. P.S. they are super nice and have never said...

  16. Kid Friendly Window Projections

    General Halloween
    So my 5 year old accidentally saw a clip of AtmosFearFX projections and did not think it was very cool, I don't want to scare the crap out of my neighbors kids either. Are there any 'happy haunts' projections?
  17. Thoughts?

    Party Ideas. Experiences and Recipes
    We have an annual Halloween party at our house. We decorate inside and out, do the themed food and drinks. We do not do Trick or Treaters because we have 3 big dogs and don't want to keep them agitated with the doorbell and people coming in and out. This year, I thought since we do all this work...
  18. my yard vs my neighbors yard...

    General Halloween
    It is July 2nd and this is my neighbor's yard, perfectly in sync, beautiful and ready for the 4th. And then here is my yard on July 2nd... already feeling panicked for time as I rehab my props for Halloween. I am lucky my neighbors like me!
  19. Other: Cemetery Props in Drought Tolerant Landscaping

    Halloween Props
    This year we have decided to convert the small grass area in our front yard to CA natives and other drought tolerant plants. When I told my neighbors about our plans, the first question everyone asked was "what will happen to the Halloween cemetery?" It made me smile that our neighbors were as...
  20. It's Not Spreading... HELP!!

    General Halloween
    Everyone knows that typically when a home haunter moves in, neighbors step up their Halloween decorating game. People who never decorated before at least put out a pumpkin or make an attempt at using bag-o-webs... I've seen this everywhere I've lived before. I've lived in this neighborhood for...
