  1. Well it was bound to happen eventually - Halloween weater

    General Halloween
    Might be the first Halloween ruined by weather since I've been doing my yard haunt. The worst part is that it's beautiful weather until Halloween, 55 with a 50% chance of rain and gusty winds on Halloween, then back to beautiful weather the rest of the week. ONE day I ask for nice weather...
  2. Prop Showcase: 2018 - Strangling Sisters Haunted CarnEvil Circus - Underway!

    Halloween Props
    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! I've been barely able to keep up with our website and the forum - but am determined to show some love here on the one and only...
  3. Who uses a variety of lighting on yard/props?

    General Halloween
    As I comb through around here on various threads I see many colors on various yards and props. Made me wonder and think to myself. I typically use just blue, and maybe 2 red led's for my stuff. However, I see some of your tombstones with purples, greens and various cyans. Part of me says...
  4. THE HAUINTING OF HILL HOUSE - possibly the best made for T.V. GHOST STORY EVER ?

    Horror Discussion
    Hi all , i just finished binge watching THE HAUNTING OF HILL HOUSE on Netflix , i personally think it was one of the best ghost stories i have seen in many years , the characters , the actors the story-line and especially the rather creepy if not sometimes disturbing ghosts , everything for me...
  5. Static: How are you lighting your pumpkin scarecrows/sentinels securely and effectively?

    Halloween Props
    For those with tall outdoor pumpkin scarecrows, sentinels, etc ... is there a consensus best ways to illuminate them? This is all still pretty new to me, (though I have picked up the aesthetic part quick) but right now I'm just not sure how you're lighting up your pumpkins when they're 6,7, 8...
  6. Static: Shoes and Hands

    Halloween Props
    What are you guys using to make your hands or attach your hands to your props. Same for shoes where are you getting them, what types are you using? I always seem to struggle on this part.
  7. Electronic/Software: Hellp. Need to disable sound on this prop

    Halloween Props
    Hello everyone. I bought one of these canvas led paintings at HomeDepot (actually it's the one where the witch is outside a house with a ghost above her but I can't find it on the HD site.). It's perfect for the location I have but I don't want the sound to play, it's fun once or twice but not...

  10. Mechanical: Zultan transistor

    Halloween Props
    I'm hoping to find a transistor expert in here. I've got an old Zultan that we've had forever and we love. The Curtains stopped opening (common problem). Temporarily I wired them open, but now I'm trying to fix it. In chasing the lack of voltage getting to the motor I came across a...
  11. Other: Attach skeletons to vinyl siding?

    Halloween Props
    I want to attach some skeletons to the front of my house. I did a search and didn't come up with anything, but that could be user error on my part. Anyone have any ideas they could pass on would be great.

    General Halloween
    Sorry for the picture overload, but this is what all the hard work is about. Seeing a vision come to fruition. I've got 6 of the 7 scenes I planned set up. I need to make some new lava pits before setting up my last scene. Scene one is using swirling red and orange lights is the 3 witches...
  13. Static: Made a hayride cart, pretty easy prop

    Halloween Props
    We made a hayride cart to go behind our corpse skeleton horse (home D). We used a small table that the legs go down short. Cut a thin piece of wood about the same size as the table, (thin, like the kind from wood crates, not plywood) then made a lip on the 2 long sides to fit over the table...

    Halloween Props
    Hi All, One of my big concerns in building props is being able to store them for next year. While I have a decent size house - my decorations tend to be big - the bigger the better. This year I am building a new fence and gate and wanted to make some cool pillars. I work in the sign and...
