  1. How early do you start planning?

    Halloween Costume Ideas
    My planning consists mostly of planning my costume(since I live in an apartment with my mother, and she doesn't really like Halloween decorations), and I think about and look forward to that all year. I usually change my mind a lot and don't know for sure what to be until summer. What about you...

  3. August -- The Pre-Halloween Season Month

    General Halloween
    That's the way I've always considered it. We decorate the house after Labor Day, and we steadily approach autumn and leave the days of summer behind. August is a month of planning for many in the Halloween community. Mostly planning around the notion of "how in the world did time fly by so quick...

  10. 2015 Has come to a SCREECHING Hault

    General Halloween
    After the huge success of 2014, I was so excited to begin planning for next Halloween, but I've had to stop planning seeing as we are now looking in to moving. As exciting as it is to move, I now feel as though I shouldn't be planning props, lights, or anything due to the fact that I have no...
  11. Projector opinion

    General Halloween
    I know there has been a lot of posts on projectors as they are getting more and more popular.

  15. Swearing off the news...

    Off-Topic Stuff
    I'm serious. I don't know for how long, but at least through this Halloween, which means a lot of avoidance, because it's IN YOUR FACE. But I want to enjoy some time of simplistic nature and holiday feel. All around us, people are killing for no reason, invading for no reason, making insane...

    Every year it happens. In the late summer I make a detailed Halloween to-do list, plan everything out meticulously for the party and yard haunt, start out strong... and run out of time. Never again! For 2012, I’m making it my New Year’s resolution to work on something Halloween related every...

    I know many of us who host annual parties have a list of potential themes we think about and add to all year long. My question is, when do you release the theme of the next party? Of course people start asking DURING each party what the theme will be for the next year. I keep mum at that...
