  1. A new look for our yard

    General Halloween
    The mermaid skeleton came! She is gorgeous!!! Rather than a typical bone color, she is kind of grayish, with a bendy tail. She'll certainly look better than our old mermaid, which was a regular Bucky type, with a homemade tail. Due to a house move, we couldn't Halloween last year, and when I...

    General Halloween
    Two weeks out and a bit early to tell but what's your long range forecast look like? We're 54/45 with morning showers. I could live with that as long as it's in the morning.
  4. Need Advanced Hollusion Projection Advice from those whom have come before me

    Tutorials and Step-By-Step
    I want to do a "open air" Hollusion, meaning just out in the yard. I assume I need to two stakes that I'll paint matte black and then attach the Hollusion matierial to the stacks. On AtmosFX website they say a little bit of ambient light BEHIND the Hollusion screen makes it look better. But...
  5. Fog: Anyone ever used a 1 by one fogger

    Halloween Props
    I need an upgrade to a 1000 plus watt machine this year. Amazon has a 1500watt one by one for $99. I've read that build quality can be an issue but the output of this machine is good. I have looked at chauvet and I have a 700. My budget is only 100-130ish. If you've used any one by one what did...

  8. Other: Is it just me or have the quality of the average Halloween Prop been declining?

    Halloween Props
    Maybe it is just me, but over the past 10 years or so I have noticed a decline in the quality/ coolness of so many standard price range ($15 - $250) Halloween props. Has anyone else noticed this too?

  10. Atmosphere Effects: Suggested speakers for thunder

    Halloween Props
    Hi. Would like to add the thunder/lightning effect in 2015. What would you recommend for the speaker to really "feel" the boom of the thunder while still capturing the frequency range for thunder? Would a subwoofer be sufficient (like this...
  11. How I made a fierce Lunging Dog prop out of the gentle motorized reindeer decoration!

    Tutorials and Step-By-Step
    Next year will be my 10th year haunting and hanging out on the forums, and this is my first tutorial. It's not so much an exact step-by-step of what you should do but, rather, how I approached this prop. I do a great job of copying others work, and not so much creating my own, so your mileage...
