  1. My birthday nightmare :(

    General Halloween
    I was having a less than happy birthday on Sunday and it only got worse. I was pet sitting for a friend and I got the call from my neighbor around 7:15pm... my garage was on fire. Halloween forum friends... I lost 34 years of collecting Halloween stored in my garage and I have nothing Halloween...
  2. Starting over-best way to build flats ?

    Hello Forum, I have been off line for some time as in 2017 the local town made us an offer we could not refuse on the homestead. Long story short we relocated to a much smaller property and 2018 was our first year in the new place. I managed to get my yard set up and the neighbors and kids...
  3. Electronic/Software: Sparking Props

    Halloween Props
    I made a prosthetic claw out of foam for a zombie walk and now I wish to make it better. I want sparks when the claw ends touch. Fright Props used to sell "Spark Gloves" that were battery operated and safe for user and others. Unfortunately they don't sell those anymore and I can't find any...

  6. Electronic/Software: Hooking up a motor safely

    Halloween Props
    Hi there, This is my first post on this forum, so apologies if it's not really in the right place! I have a motor that I swiped from a microwave that I thought would be good to use for a crank ghost; it's low RPM (5-6) and should have a fairly OK amount of torque. My question really is about...

  12. "Safe" Hangman Noose

    Halloween Costume Ideas
    Does anyone have any tips on making a hangman noose safe? I have an idea for a costume where the character will be wearing a noose around his neck, with maybe 2 feet of broken rope dangling either behind him or in front. I have no intention of "hanging" with the noose at any time, but I'm not...
  13. Halloween Neighborhoods?

    General Halloween
    Does anyone know of any streets in their towns that do Halloween in a big way? Here in Albuquerque we have a street called Forrester that the fire department blocks off to traffic from one end to the other to provide a safe place or TOTs and the majority of the houses decorate and participate...

    Ok so my first post, (seen some great stuff on here so far). I'm planning a quite ambitious high fantasy inspired dungeon (rather than a dedicated 'haunt though could be ramped up in intensity for different ages) as a live action adventure game for children primarily 7/12 years. Think classic...
