  1. Escape the Black Widow - SUGGESTIONS PLEASE!

    Party Ideas. Experiences and Recipes
    Two years ago I did an Escape Room in my basement. It was a hit, but I didn't get to enjoy the party because I kept having to go reset the room. Soooo, last year I did a variation. Each guest who wanted to participate was the victim for a designated amount of time. During this time the other...
  2. Mechanical: Raising a tombstone - What do I need

    Hey all, Kinda looking/searching into more animatronic props lately (building myself) and wanna get more into electrical and motors, etc. I created this prop this year, kinda like tombstone, built outta foam and wood. Maybe weights 20lbs or so. I was thinking of raising it up and down. So...
  3. Pineapple Jack-o'-Lantern

    Party Ideas. Experiences and Recipes
    We were looking for something different to try for Halloween when I saw a picture online of a pineapple jack-o-lantern and thought it would be a fun project to try. Unlike raw pumpkin, we love pineapple; so the core will quickly be eaten in no time. Instructions...
  4. Candy Corn Mix

    General Halloween
    What's your special blend? My famous recipe is basic but effective. It's hard not to have a container sitting around with this filled (although it empties quickly) all October or earlier. Candy Corn Autumn Mix (Brach's) M & M Peanuts Honey Roasted Nuts (the fresher the better)

  6. Why does the forum time out so quickly?

    General Halloween

I can't tell you how many long and thoughtful posts I've written in reply to somebody or other that never get posted because because I've been timed out. When I first joined in 2002, this was never an issue. You could sign in and...
  7. Hello all

    Member Introduction
    Hello all, Internet Troll here from Pa. I have a feeling that I will be spending a lot of time poking around the site and wanted to introduce myself and give a little background to explain why I am here. I never did a lot for Halloween until last year. A couple of weeks before Halloween I...
  8. Fog: Question about Fog juice and smell additives - need your advice

    Halloween Props
    What's the best fog for outdoor use with a fog chiller? I've only used the stuff from Spirit. I've heard about Froggy's fog and they make it sound great. Is it? Does it really hang longer? Also hoping to hear from people that use the smell additives... do they work outdoors or does it...
