  1. Ourdoor speaker setup

    Party Ideas. Experiences and Recipes
    Hi all! First, I will preface this with - not sure how to categorize this!, as its not really a prop Q, and not really a music-specific question either. Rather a general speakers set up.. In the past, I've run with a Jambox (company now obsolete, I think - but essentially a mobile BLUETOOTH...
  2. Mechanical: Axworthy Ghost motor question

    Halloween Props
    What would the average size motor be for an Axworthy Ghost? I will be using a lightweight ghoul head with foam arms and cheesecloth so he will be not weigh much at all and my yard is maybe 60 feet across so the cable he will travel on will be about 130ft. I have never built one of these and I...
  3. Our 2018 yard haunt "Pestilence"

    General Halloween
    Some pics of our yard haunt from 2018. Had a lot of fun with this theme. I didn't have the chance to display the Wasp props I got from Nevermore Productions, but those will be setup this year. Also the last 3 pics was taken a week before we setup the awesome sewer facade from Nevermore Productions.
  4. Prop Showcase: Halloween 2018 Video update - Thanks to you all for inspiration!

    Halloween Props
    Hello all - I finally am getting around to posting a brief video of last year's setup. This was taken the night before Halloween and does not have footage of the massive amounts of fog we put out and the hundred of kids that showed up. I also should have pulled the car out of the driveway before...
  5. Lighting: 2018 House and yard setup

    Halloween Props
    It's my second year decorating at our new house. We don't get any TOT's since we live on a main road, but we do get a lot of cars driving by and slowing down. I have have two projectors running: second floor is a ghost bride loop and the first floor is a loop of sirens and wraiths. We have a...

    General Halloween
    My practice set up. Temp lighting up just to see what would look best there will be more come the night.
  7. Electronic/Software: Computer power supply not powering wiper motor

    Halloween Props
    The setup worked a couple years ago. I tested the motor with a car battery and it works. I also put the meter on the outputs of the computer power supply and I get 5 volts on the red and 12 on the yellow. When I connect the motor to the power supply the motor doesn't turn at all, I measured with...

    I can't believe it's been 2015 since I posted a album to share with my fellow Yard Haunters. Anyway, here is the 2017 setup. I think the lighting effects that year were the best I've ever done. Enjoy!!!! https://www.halloweenforum.com/members/scary-firefighter-albums-halloween-2017-a.html
  10. Static: Facade Raising Ideas

    Halloween Props
    This is a little different post - hoping to get some advice. So we setup large facades each year for our haunted western town. They all can be setup with two people typically, which is nice since it is usually my wife and I working on it. We have one heavy facade - it's 14' wide by 13' tall (at...

  13. All in, half or nothing...

    General Halloween
    This has probably been brought up before, but I have a difficult decision this year. I am not able to get any time off work for the big day. I work in retail and have to open a new store on 11/1. Which means I will probably be stuck working on Halloween night and back in the morning about...

  16. Back in the Saddle with a little Halloween and Camping

    General Halloween
    Last weekend we had our annual Camping Harvest Fest at a local state park here in Michigan. This was our 13th year and a full house as usual. I historically would setup a very large graveyard and it was a great hit. I have to admit I was getting tired so we camped last year but didn’t setup...

    Halloween Props
    Light(n)ing question here: For those of you who have the Morris Perfect Storm lightning box, could you describe your setup and provide any tips & tricks to maximize the effect? I'm trying to decide if I should add this to the must-do list for this year. I already have a 500w halogen work light...
