  1. Ceramic Ghost tealight holders

    Wanted to Buy
    Hello, I've been looking for two tealight holders I had in the late 80's. I've found their smaller versions, but want to find the larger pair. They are from Cannon Falls and came in two sizes: 6-ish inch versions and larger 12-ish inch versions. I am not great at computer manipulation, but I...
  2. Do You Keep Track of Your Stuff?

    General Halloween
    Once upon a time it was very easy for me to know what I had when it came to Halloween. I only had a handful of things and it all fit in a few totes that go stashed in the basement. Now I've taken over two closets, a large chunk of a bedroom, and a corner of the basement that keeps creeping...
  3. Electronic/Software: Need Help with Micca or Projector....again

    Halloween Props
    I have 4 Miccas, different brands but the same plug-ins because I am using them for older projectors. I need music to come from the projectors and found that I plug the speaker cord into the Micca it will play perfectly. I could not get it to play on any of the projectors when plugged into them...
  4. Video- My display

    General Halloween
    This was a fun year! I brought out some older props that I haven't used in some years. It was good to see them, lol. Next year I'll rotate in some other props I haven't used in a while. That's the good thing about having a large number of animatronics- you can rotate them each year and old ones...
  5. ToTs without costumes

    General Halloween
    Hi everybody! Sorry if this question was already raised, but how do you feel about ToTs (in my experience generally older) who come and ask for candies but they don’t have a costume or not even a mask or something? I don’t get too many, but they still annoy me a bit - I would like to tell...

  10. HANDING OUT Halloween Magnets

    General Halloween
    I was wondering if if would be okay if I handed out candy and quarter-sized Magnets (glass w/ Halloween images) to the older kids that trick or treat??? I would not hand them out to any kids under 5. Most of trick or treaters are older kids up to adults. I would add a photo, but I haven't...
  11. Lighting: Projector that's the best of both worlds? cheap w/usb input

    Halloween Props
    I've used projectors in my setup in the past by buying old but high lumen ones off of ebay. I had success with 1080i Dell projectors as well as others, but I always found these older but high lumen projectors to be a huge compromise because they tend to only have vga or older composite vide...

  13. Does anyone here live in a real Haunted House?

    General Halloween
    Stuck inside with the blizzard all day, and of course thinking of Halloween. I was wondering if anyone had a real ghost experience. I have heard drawers opening and closing when no one else is home, got a real creepy feeling sometimes walking into a room, but never really saw anything. I...

    With his older Brother and another boy. He was fairly scared even though i had all the lights on for most of every step he did take while going through the house. The two older boys had been through the house before. I gave hm his own flashlight when we got to the coffin hallway. In the...
  15. Historical Human Sacrifice Haunt idea?

    General Halloween
    I've been playing around with an idea for a super creepy, historically accurate haunt. Not this year, but down the road. A few years ago, down in Dallas, they had storybook scenes at a botanical garden, with a large plaque telling the story (presumably so parents could read it to kids). Wouldn't...
  16. Your Best "Talent" or situations that made you a haunter?

    General Halloween
    I was the first-born and the first born Grandchild, an only child til I got to kindergarten. I guess I was made to feel important or even special by most adults I came in contact with, good or bad for the ego... I always had my own fantasy world available to entertain myself with. I started...
