  1. Escape the Black Widow - SUGGESTIONS PLEASE!

    Party Ideas. Experiences and Recipes
    Two years ago I did an Escape Room in my basement. It was a hit, but I didn't get to enjoy the party because I kept having to go reset the room. Soooo, last year I did a variation. Each guest who wanted to participate was the victim for a designated amount of time. During this time the other...
  2. My Monster In A Box

    Tutorials and Step-By-Step
    I found a small crate at work and decided to take a whack at the classic Monster In A Box prop. My version is made to look like an old box that might have been around for many, many years. I used a green light instead of the traditional red just to be different. The monster is an old dollar...

  4. Uncle Charlie Spirit Halloween prop for sale.

    For Sale/Trade By Individuals
    $400 plus shipping (I really don't want to get rid of but I have never displayed him and I am downsizing). He has some issues. I got three years ago from original owner, but he did not take care of his props. I tossed the box as it had some mildew. I washed all his clothes and hot-glued his...
  5. Thrift Store Finds?

    General Halloween
    I'm relatively new on the forum, and have been on a bit of a thrift store kick here of late. I haven't (as yet) found any really exceptional Halloween/horror sorts of deals during the off season, but I think a lot of it comes from one's mindset, and how creative a person can get with things for...
  6. Other: Zombie Dolls from Party City

    Halloween Props
    Party City has three zombie dolls: Bloody Mary, Tammy Terror and Bride Doll. They have blue glowing eyes and say a few lines about themselves, apparently in the third person, like "She's the ghoul of your dreams" as opposed to saying the phrases in first person, like one would expect a doll to...
  7. Lighting: A variation on the "swamp lantern"

    Halloween Props
    So I stood in line at Michael's for at least 20 minutes this past weekend with a bunch of people buying Christmas stuff and I wondered to myself "I wonder what these people would do if they knew I was here to buy supplies for next year's Halloween and I don't care about the Xmas stuff...."...
  8. Winking Murder Printables!

    Party Ideas. Experiences and Recipes
    Ok, I was looking everywhere for printable cards for the winking murder game. There was a lady on here, who said she would email them if needed, But I am not sure if she is still a member. So I made my own take on the cards. Here they are if you want them! (I printed mine in large size prints...
  9. Spirirt has no spirit.

    General Halloween
    A month or so ago I asked a sales person at the local Spirit if I could put up a flyer looking for haunt volunteers. She said OK . Came back last week after no response and was told District manager said Take it down. So I said "I guess Spirit wants our money but doesn't want to support the...
