    I saw where someone made a life size skeleton couple that danced as if they were on a music box. This was either last year or the year before and for the life of me I cant find the thread anywhere. Any help would be appreciated. The wife has wanted me to make one for the past ten years. We...

    Hello all! On good old Marketplace, I was able to buy two 60" poseable skeletons for a combined $10. Couldn't pass that up! They're the good ones too. Anyhow! Got me to thinking about All Hallows Eve this year. I've always done spiders, as it's what I hate, and wanted to share the fear...
  12. Do you have any limits regarding taste and decency when creating your yard haunts?

    General Halloween
    As with any decorating, certain judgement calls come up when creatively expressing ourselves through our Halloween haunts. I bring this up because I've only been having fun with this for a handful of years, yet I've already run into quandaries. Just in the first and second years in this...
  13. Custom Halloween T-Shirt

    General Halloween
    I'm thinking about creating a custom t-shirt to wear year round. I'm thinking it would show skeleton ribs and a Jack-O-Lantern instead of a heart. What do you guys think and do you have any ideas to add to it.

  16. Building a Faux Rock Arch

    REQUEST FOR TUTURIALS GO HERE
    Hey Spooky People! This isn't so much a request for a tutorial as it is a "am I going about this correctly" guide. The entrance to our haunt is a sort of fall-down-the-rabbit-hole type deal. I want to build a rock arch similar to this: It's not going to be that wide as I only have about 5'...

  19. Mechanical: Asking for help on how to prevent motors from burning out

    Halloween Props
    I rely on so many of you to guide my prop builds, and this thread will be no different. This year two of my props had motors that failed, and I'm pretty sure it was our fault for asking them to do something they weren't meant to do. I'm hoping that with a bit of guidance, we can set them up...
