  2. General Halloween
    Can't remember who it was that posted a while back about just starting out and wanting to go big, but being on a budget. I had replied that a small budget just means add a little each year, make as much as you can from whatever you can get cheap or free, hit the clearance sales, and grow it...

    This video shows the 2018 reboot of a Halloween light show first done in 2012. The lighting and music were orchestrated with Light-o-Rama controllers and software running 90-some circuits. There's a brief glimpse of the tombstone flippers and spinner featured in proof-of-concept videos posted...

  7. Halloween Props
    We made a hayride cart to go behind our corpse skeleton horse (home D). We used a small table that the legs go down short. Cut a thin piece of wood about the same size as the table, (thin, like the kind from wood crates, not plywood) then made a lip on the 2 long sides to fit over the table...
  8. Halloween Props
    Hi All, I made a tombstone for a friend of mine. I used 2 coats of Drylok and 2 coats of paint as a base before aging it. After one Halloween season, the pink foam started to show through the paint. Has this happened to anyone before? I can't find any other instances of this happening...

  12. General Halloween
    Am I the only one really disappointed with what's on tv this Halloween season? In year's past, I could turn on the tv at any given time of the day or night and be able to find some old horror movie or just some cool halloween show I could watch. This year, none of that exists. Unless I am...
  13. Halloween Props
    For those that do the fearfx video projections, when do you start showing your display? I'm trying to figure out is I should do it later as it gets closer to Halloween maybe a week before, or do you display it from early on, or only on Halloween day?

  15. Halloween Props
    I just saw a automated coffin on YouTube, where the guy made the lid fly open with the help of a motion detector. What I found interesting was he made a couple of pneumatic actuators out of standard ole screen door closer's. by taping the ends hooking up some tubing and running air to them. Has...

    Member Introduction
    Hello. I've been haunting for almost 10 years now. I've grown up being obsessed with the Haunted Mansion ride at Disneyland and of course Halloween is my favorite holiday. My first real job was actually working in a halloween/costume store, I'll never forget the day I scared the customers...
