  1. 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...
  2. Halloween Props
    Hello, I recently bought this Halloween skeleton tree lunger from Big Lots. It has a motion and sound activation function, but does not seem to be working for me. There is a try me button attached to it and that works quite well. I was wondering if anyone knew how I might be able to extend the...
  3. Halloween Props
    Hey all, I wanted to share my prop I've been building for about 3 weeks now. I wanted to get to more props, but this one took way to long and I got a late start. My original concept was to take all these skulls I had and create a skull pile prop. Something you'd find at spirit or similar. I...
  4. Halloween Props
    Just picked this guy (https://www.homedepot.com/p/Home-Accents-Holiday-86-6-in-Headless-Horseman-5124513/304942912) up today on floor model. Obviously, some bits were broken, nothign we couldn't fix, but specifically the mechanism that turns his legs was broken. Me and my dad have been trying to...
  5. Halloween Props
    Just thought I'd share what we've been working on! My fiancée is an English professor and I'm a full-time grad student so we generally only have so much time to work on things during the year while we're exhausted, but we've got a pretty respectable start! Most of the tombstones are from last...
  6. Halloween Costume Ideas
    I am a fat guy, and it's hard to come up with good Halloween costumes for someone my shape. This year my brother suggested a Star Trek movie uniform, as some of the cast members had put on some weight. I knew the Monster Maroon Uniform was beyond my skill level, but then Scotty's Costume from...
  7. Halloween Props
    I have always been content in just modifying decorations and making costumes but this year took on my first large prop build. Decided to make a pumpkin sentinel like creature to put in my flagpole holder. Failed to take pictures along the way but got a lot of great info on the site. Here is...
  8. Member Introduction
    I saw your posts about yards and that was all that I needed to join in with you. Oh, yes you want an introduction first. (I'm playing with these these posting features :confused:, so please bear with me. ) I live in Chester County, PA. My yard at this time of year is called "Uwchlan Haunt...
  9. Halloween Props
    I picked up a skeleton from Spririt the other day, but it is way too cute for my yard. I am looking into converting him into a groundbreaker and would like him to have a greyish corpse look to him similar to the below pictures. I've seen some posts about using plastic wrap and a heat gun to...
  10. Halloween Props
    Out of all the props I have bought, I have to admit, LOVE this one. The pictures don't even begin to do them justice. T hey were a huge hit at the get together a couple of weeks ago. Beyond creepy Will post more of the living room later.
  11. General Halloween
    Hi all! I've lurked here for years and just really started collecting what I need for doing my own home haunt. One thing I've noticed is it takes a lot of research and going through old posts to find what I am looking for to accomplish certain things or find certain items or sales. I've...
  12. General Halloween
    You know the Halloween village pieces? I'm trying to figure out how many years they did it (was it just 2014-2016?), and what pieces went to what years (pictures). I made a list of what I'm missing last year but without pictures...it's not helpful. I think I managed to find the pictures for...

  17. Party Ideas. Experiences and Recipes
    I am doing something a bit different this year and leaving the gore behind. Each year we have a theme party that is announced the previous year and this year will be a Great Gatsby Party. I am working in the phrase “A Little Party Never Killed Nobody” and possibly will have a few of the...
  18. Halloween Props
    Hi Everyone! I am so grateful for this forum. :D This is my first year finding it and it has been a lifesaver! I am looking for a little help with some back stories for props I have in my Dead and Breakfast this year. I typically can write with the best of them, but I am having a hard time...
  19. Halloween Props
    This is a little different post - hoping to get some advice. So we setup large facades each year for our haunted western town. They all can be setup with two people typically, which is nice since it is usually my wife and I working on it. We have one heavy facade - it's 14' wide by 13' tall (at...
  20. Halloween Props
    I have a 1/4 acre pond in my front pasture I would love to put a large prop in. Has anyone done something similar? I can't really use the pasture because curious cows destroy anything I put out there, but I think the pond has potential. I also have a windmill pumping into the pond so that has...
