  1. Halloween Props
    I have a prop in our haunt this year that will be suspended from the ceiling with chains. The prop itself weighs less than 50 lbs and of course it will be securely held by heavy duty chains. I'm wanting to use the thinnest black thread possible that I can attach to the prop so that an actor can...
  2. General Halloween
    Hi, I'm looking to set a Jack O Lantern scene like the one at Haunted Mansion. Do you have recommendations on where to get them? Ebay seem a little spendy. Thanks.
  3. 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...
  4. 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...

    My family always throws a halloween party every year doing one of those mystery dinner parties where everyone is a character. They always go all out so we prepare now by buying the mystery. Has anyone done one of those and have any good recommendations?

    Hi guys, picked up a Gemmy Lightshow Illusion Projector (2018 product) that comes with 6 slides and finding all the slides are super tight to insert into the projector. Too late to return after holiday and do like it so wondering how to make the best of this. Also curious if others have had...
  7. Halloween Props
    I used to go all out for Halloween with one of my family members. We would prep and prop all year long to put out massive displays of pirates and ghosts and mummies. Unfortunately, this year, that family member is no longer around. I had already made the costumes (haunted toys/dolls) but now I...

    Hey all, been a while. I want to get a low cost camera to mount and film the visitors scares at my house this year. Plug in with night vision that records to an SD card is preferred. Anyone got some recommendations? Thanks
  9. General Halloween
    I was just curious what Halloween/Horror/Creepy Facebook Pages & Podcasts people LIKE and listen too. I'm really looking for a new podcast to listen to at work and I just re-purposed my facebook page (signature) and thought it was worth mentioning. My podcast recommendations: Alone in the...

    Hello, At the haunt I am working this year, I will be made up as a Zoltar character (the robotic genie in a box)... I want to look as authentic as possible, but I am not certain how to make my face have that plastic 'doll' look. Do you have any recommendations on how to do this?

  13. Halloween Props
    Im looking for some decent animated props to be used outdoors for the entrance to my home for a halloween party. I dont want them to be low quality or too jerky. Ive seen many on certain "popular" sites that seem to be way overpriced for what you get. Any ideas? Website recommendations?
  14. Halloween Props
    Do any of you have recommendations of any kind of construction element that can be built into a prop to help weight it down? I plan to make a few small "islands" for my bayou that would only consist of a small plywood base, great foam and small pvc/pool noodle trees, so not much weight to hold...
  15. Halloween Music
    I'm looking for recommendations for Halloween Albums, similar to that of the "Scary Sounds CD" by Paper Magic Group, and "Scary Sound Effects" which included music like "Pipe Organ & Ghost" and "Pipe Organ & Bassoon". There's a particular piece of ambient spooky music I'm looking for but no one...

    Hi. I want to build a self-contained Madame Leota using rear-projection. I will make the head using a vacuum forming with semi-transparent plastic. But I dont' know a good projector for this. It does not need to be high res, or super bright, but it needs to be pretty quiet and small. And I...

    I am going to get a talking skull this year. I would like to record some dialogue with the back story for my haunt. I am looking for some software for my Mac that I can use the record my voice, alter the sound of the voice (deepen the pitch, etc.) and potentially add some basic effects like...
