  1. General Halloween
    Last year I did a Creepy Clown Carnival. It was mostly static because I got the wrong size motor for my wheel of death. This year I want to build a parachute drop ride with zombie babies riding on umbrella/parachutes. My issue is I can not find any plans or anyone who has attempted this. Has...

  3. Party Ideas. Experiences and Recipes
    One year when I was thinking about doing a murder scene theme for my haunt (and know some of you plan for murder mystery parties so posting here as a result), I was looking at different ready-made police line up scene setters to use. Kind of hate spending a lot of money on stuff like this for...
  4. Halloween Props
    I have this large wraith with outstretched hands, and I was thinking of hooking up a motor to thrust a zombie baby out of its abdomen in and out. This would be my first foray into DIY motor props and I could use some guidance. Take a look at the 14:14 mark of this video...
  5. General Halloween
    After a long hiatus, I finally got to participate in our neighborhood's TOT! This year I went with more of a Harvest theme with our decorations. Some corn stalks, a small pumpkin patch, and retro-inspired decorations. Amazingly nothing was stolen or vandalized, which was the cause for the...

    My name is Brent, I started a Halloween party this past year with some friends. What turned from being a couple of us going out to a party dressed up, ended up being a party with over 100 people invited. The weather made it somewhat of a lower turnout then we expected, but we still had a great...
  9. General Halloween
    It seems like every year there is some kind of snag that doesn't let me decorate the way I want. Last year we had lost my mother-in-law, my father-in-law had a serious stroke and I was dealing with some mild health issues. This year we've lost my father-in-law, I went back to college and I...

  12. Halloween Props
    All: We are hoping to build a mausoleum for this years haunt. Anyone have plans, advice, ideas, pics? I've seen folks use insulation panels to build walls before. What do you coat or paint them with? I've used stucco mud before on insulation but it tends to chip off. Any advice would be...

  17. Halloween Props
    I've decided that I'm going to do some brick columns this year (with gates) to go with my existing fencing. Does anyone know of plans available for columns? I'm going to attach pink foam to the outside to make bricks. I tend to be good at the painting, weathering, etc. but as far as the...
