    This is my favorite time of year...setting up props of many Halloween years, looking for new ideas (time permuted) Filming it for the record (time permitted) and cleaning up the next day of all the candy that was split from someones child who got a bad-dose of something that they never thought...

    I had this problem last year, probably going to have it again. How does everyone keep your projector stable? I have two in the garage that need to go vertical and I have a hell of a time getting them to sit on their sides. The slightest movement will of course mess them up. I wish you could...

    https://www.amazon.com/Star-Shower-2017-Slide-Show/dp/B073FB1DW9 I picked up several of these cheap at the end of last year (mostly for Christmas time). Anyone else using them? I plan on using two on either side of my garage with the ghost slide.

    Hi All, One of my big concerns in building props is being able to store them for next year. While I have a decent size house - my decorations tend to be big - the bigger the better. This year I am building a new fence and gate and wanted to make some cool pillars. I work in the sign and...

    I like to decorate my front yard so that adults and older kids are entertained, but little kids aren't traumatized. Last year I had a bazillion pumpkins everywhere, as well as two suburban skeleton guys in lawn chairs with a fire pit. It was a surprisingly big hit, with people posing for...

    I spend most of my time on Tumblr and have seen many art zines calling for submissions as of late. I've never made it into one (once I got so close orz!) but it got me thinking "Why haven't I seen a Halloween zine?" I've only ever saw them for specific fandoms but why not one full of haunted art...

    I have a screened in porch off the side of my house. I built a facade for the front side. And in the past I have taken heavy duty black plastic, folded thee edge over and gorilla taped it down creating a seam pocket. I then ran some cord through it and attached it to the interior roof of the...

    I got some of these awesome flat pallets at work and used them to make a new, sturdier witch hut. They are about 3x4ft. I used four for the back and cut a foot off each side of the back to make one 6x6ft wall. The sides were made from two of the panels and I cut an angle for the roofline into...

    For my haunted mansion I was thinking about adding an old candle lit chandelier. I would love to make it move a little (like swaying from side to side) like a ghost is pushing it. Anybody ever did this or hase an idea on how to do it?
  14. Halloween Props
    I would like to animate the camel's head to swivel side to side like the Christmas reindeer. The head is paper mache and rather heavy, though it is hollow. It is also long. I used an L-shaped support that descended through the neck and rested on the ground. I am open to redesigning. This would...

    I need to hide a projector in the middle of our driveway. We will be setting up in front of it while it projects on the house behind us. Trick or treaters will be blocked about 10 ft in front with our candy table and caution/warning tape. I'm considering buying a big cardboard box and painting...
