    I may have asked this before, years ago, but do we have any practicing Witches in our group? If so, what are YOUR plans for our favourite night?
  3. General Halloween
    Hard to imagine that three weeks from tonight, around this time (8:30 p.m. EST) we'll be wrapping up Halloween 2014. The trick or treaters will be dwindling due to the 6-8 p.m. TOT hours set by our city. We'll likely have some stragglers and of course the friends/co-workers/family, that stop by...

    I'm not talking about the family that lives with you. Although I guess they could slip away for the evening if they're not into Halloween. :) I mean extended family like parents, brothers, sisters.......and friends. My nieces came a couple of times but not for years. One of them is terrified...

    For my mad lab haunt this year, I wanted to find a way to record better video. In years past, my cell phone and Flip camera didn't record well because of the dim lighting. So this year I turned to the forum for some help. Thankfully DexterSinister steered me down a path I wasn't familiar with -...

    How do you incorporate darkness into your haunt? At least where I live, you have to go pretty far away to find actual darkness. The lights of Phoenix can be seen 100 miles away. In California, it is even worse. Since most people live near large cities, I wonder how many people have ever had...
