  1. Mechanical: Help with cauldron creep head movement

    Halloween Props
    I could really use some advice to save me time and aggravation. See my video first: https://youtu.be/dUAD_fsq1fA I'm having a couple challenges with the head. First, what should I do to get the head to come up more vertical? At its highest point, it is still too angled down for my taste. My...

    Wanted to Buy
    Missed out on these and just heartbroken. I would love to buy anyone's extras or if you get tired of the ones you bought for yourself (like that's going to happen, but a girl can dream right?) :D Willing to negotiate on price within reason and pay shipping. Or let me know if there is something...
  8. Static: Pumpkins in the Uk

    Halloween Props
    Hi guys, need help. Looking for some large-ish foam/polystyrene pumpkins to use as prop heads in the UK but can seem to find anything large enough that's a reasonable price to hack to bits! Everything on eBay/Amazon is either really expensive or astronomical shipping! Any ideas or links? Thanks
  9. Looking for a Certain Halloween-themed Children's Book.

    General Halloween
    It was a paperback that remember reading as a kid in the early 80s, so I'm thinking it was from the 70s or 60s. It had great illustrations, including a (then at least) haunting/creepy portrayal of a goblin sitting in a tree staring at people for some reason. I have been wanting to get a copy...

  12. Any Halloween Records you listen to for fun?

    Halloween Music
    It's great to have different spooky recordings for haunts, of course. But there are some that are extra fun that can just be listened to, for any reason or for no reason at all! Have you ever been bored in traffic during a long commute, until you put on a spooky recording? Yeah!! Like...

    In an effort to see what cool items are out there, I wanted to present you all with a scenario: For whatever reason, You get only ONE store bought Halloween item for Halloween this year. It can be up to $200. What do you buy?
  14. Halloween Horror Nights L.A.

    Haunts, Gatherings and Conventions
    Just saw this story on Entertainment Weekly's site: http://www.ew.com/article/2015/08/13/this-is-the-end-halloween-horror-nights http://www.halloweenhorrornights.com/hollywood/2015/teaser/ I haven't seen the movie but for some reason this seems like a bad idea but at least it's not the ONLY...
  15. Halfway: what are you doing ?

    General Halloween
    So, in just a couple of days it's about to be exactly halfway to Halloween . I'm wondering are there any special events that are happening out near you? Perhaps something you and your friends are going to do together? I've seen there's something going on in Chicago. I for one am going to a...

  17. Hello from Florida

    Member Introduction
    Hi there, I'm Alex. I found this site while trying to figure out when the heck the stores around here will get their Halloween merch. Unfortunately, things seem show up here much later than other areas for whatever reason. I'm currently working at Spirit for the second year, so I'm living the...
  18. Swearing off the news...

    Off-Topic Stuff
    I'm serious. I don't know for how long, but at least through this Halloween, which means a lot of avoidance, because it's IN YOUR FACE. But I want to enjoy some time of simplistic nature and holiday feel. All around us, people are killing for no reason, invading for no reason, making insane...
