Hello there from the Bayou State (Louisiana!)
Just wanted to pop in and introduce myself on this super awesome forum.
I made a PVC fence last year that I originally found linked here (and this is how I found the forum <3 )...I LOVE the way it came out.
Almost got divorced over it...
I want to try something different this year for my porch and I am not sure what I need. I know this is the place to come though because you guys are awesome.
I have a porch and I want to cobweb throughout and I want to really highlight the spooky affect with black lights. In my...
Hey groovy ghoulies, I'm starting to compile song possibilities for a Halloween party playlist and could use some help. My musical tastes run mostly toward classic rock from the 60s, 70s, and 80s with a little folk, new wave, and country thrown in here and there just to keep things interesting...
Just got an email about the Halfway to Halloween sale. They have a special tab for those sale items, Adult, kids, masks, decor and accessories. Examples: Pennywise 6ft. now 125.00; 10ft towering reaper, 150.00; 2.5ft victorian gothic gargoyle prop, 75.00. Expect these will go fast.
Also saw a...
his is a great scare in a place where guests feel "safe" - startles them every time! $410 new - why buy new? Excellent condition - easy to program - works great!
Needs an air compressor.
Posting it cheaper here than on ebay (but it is listed there too) - $275 + shipping
Partsman's Note: Here's another how-to from Death Lord enjoy
There are lots of places to find how to make a toe pincher casket on the internet, but I couldn't find a single place on building authentic coffins. Above you can see that we have used the dimensions of an actual casket to place our...
November is one of my favourite times to prop build. Next year we want to have an Alien inspired room so here we have;
The face hugger;
The face hugger is a wire frame, with lots of tape, latex & paint
The egg is a old fashioned 'paper mâché over a big...
Hi Everybody, Here is the street view of this year's attempt.
Apologies, the camera still doesn't do the actual presentation justice..
This year's inspiration..
- AtmosFx Halloween Monster Bash,
-A dance recital song (Pitbull's Fireball)...
I'll be posting a few lights on and lights off videos under this thread. This is not a common haunted house theme and so hopefully somebody out there will be inspired by it. I have also posted a separate thread for the pistols and I might do one for the pop up Indian as well.
I've created an ambient soundtrack for our graveyard this year that has some material pulled from our main soundtrack. It has some elements that might not fit your theme completely but it does have some angry wind, siren-like witches beckoning, and some ghost-ish stuff, and a ridiculous number...
Hi, i know this question has been asked before, but it is usually answered in USA spec and i am from the UK.
i am having a year off this year (missing it, but attending a big party instead), so i thought i would put my "spare" time to some use and learn about pneumatics ready for next year.
What kind of music do you guys play at your party? My guests will range in age from early 20s to 50s. I was thinking of 90s and 2000s hip hop, pop and dance hits. I feel like the music can make or break a party. What do you all think?
New here on the forums, but have a bit of experience making my own static props the last few years, mostly tombstones, a Grim pumpkin guardian, bottomless pit, etc.. Finally got my son infected with the Halloween bug and suckered my family into making our backyard/driveway into a...
Hi there! I told my boyfriend that we need to start thinking of costumes now for our Halloween party! He said he's always wanted to wear a top hat and monocle (he has a twirled stache to go with it). Every time I google or Pinterest ideas all these steampunks pop up. I don't even know what a...
I started putting together some of the animation for my popcorn machine I am making for my Carnevil display.
I am using an arduino, two relays, and two solenoids to randomly "pop" the lids. I used a dollar store dog dish for the kettle.
