  1. Happy Halloween!

    Member Introduction
    Hello to All. Earlier this evening, I was on Pinterest checking out some Halloween craft-y projects, and I landed here. Strangely, while I am not into the horror film genre, I get a great deal of satisfaction from engaging in the art process. I made a few things last year and this year, I'm...
  2. Dark and Gothic DIY clothing projects, great for costumes!

    Halloween Costume Ideas
    Finally getting updates and new projects after over a decade. Stuff like pirate shirts, cloaks, fancy skirts and such. Meant for beginning and intermediate sewing levels. Always wanted to learn to make your own costumes? This is a good place to start. Antimony & Lace

    General Halloween
    So it's that time of year where I get into the swing of things with Halloween projects and I always like some inspiration in the form of YouTube videos! One channel I really like is Hollywood Haunter, but I definitely would like a new one to watch if anyone knows of some!
  5. Other: How to paint a Squawkers McCaw / faux fur?

    Halloween Props
    After seeing some great projects with it here I finally bought a Squawkers McCaw and the board to go with it from J-Man. The problem is that my theme is a spooky graveyard, nothing piratey. My solution is to turn Squakwers into a zombie parrot in a cage, but I'm not sure how to tackle paining...

  7. Static: Paper Mache Artists, HELP!

    Halloween Props
    The last time I made something out of paper mache was in the fourth grade, so I am beyond rusty. However, we love the look of props created with paper mache and we're going to increase the number of projects that use it going forward. But there in lies the tale. I'm the one who's going to be...
  8. Fun little documentary

    General Halloween

  18. Facebook Hauntproject group

    I think one of the worst losses for our haunt community was when Perfessor Evil passed away unexpectedly and his comprehensive AMAZING build tutorial site hauntproject.com went down. We lost so much stuff when that site went dark. :( Dudeamis (over on our sister site Haunt Forum) collected much...
