  1. 2019 Orgahouse - CarnEvil

    Party Ideas. Experiences and Recipes
    Super excited that it's only 145 days away from Halloween! This year, for our fourth Party Haunt at this residence, we are doing a clown/carnival theme. We've had a few planning sessions, began prop building and and started the build a bit early to ensure we can add the all fine touches. We...
  2. Static: Gargoyles

    Halloween Props
    Hey all, Looking for 12"+ gargoyle figures to put on my cemetery gate columns this year. I've look all over and it seems what I find is either too small, or too large/expensive. Anyone know of a good source? Thx.
  3. Haunt in a large party tent?

    General Halloween
    Hi everyone, here's what I have in mind. My garage is too small for a "garage haunt", and besides, it also serves as my workshop (never parked a car in there ever since we moved into the place). I do have a huge driveway, though (over 5 meter wide, 20 meter long), big enough for an 8x4 meter...
  4. Fog: Fog Distribution in Yard

    Halloween Props
    I know this topic has been beaten to death.....but I am trying to do something slightly different. Maybe some of you with extensive knowledge on airflow and pipe sizing may help. I have a chauvet 1600 fogger, plenty of fog, and good velocity coming out. I would like to create a grid system in...
  5. Static: ideas for this cool feature of cauldron

    Halloween Props
    I'm about to start building cauldron creep prop and have purchased this barrel to serve as the cauldron. https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/2252470498414744/?ref=messenger_banner The barrel is pretty cool as-is but I may glue a few skulls or bones to it. You have any other ideas? But...
  6. Ceramic Ghost tealight holders

    Wanted to Buy
    Hello, I've been looking for two tealight holders I had in the late 80's. I've found their smaller versions, but want to find the larger pair. They are from Cannon Falls and came in two sizes: 6-ish inch versions and larger 12-ish inch versions. I am not great at computer manipulation, but I...
  7. A new look for our yard

    General Halloween
    The mermaid skeleton came! She is gorgeous!!! Rather than a typical bone color, she is kind of grayish, with a bendy tail. She'll certainly look better than our old mermaid, which was a regular Bucky type, with a homemade tail. Due to a house move, we couldn't Halloween last year, and when I...
  8. pico projector experience?

    General Halloween
    I feel like there's a thread on here every few weeks asking for projector recommendations, yet here I am again... I've decided I should try using a projector to decorate, but I don't want it to be so obvious I'm using a projector. So I thought maybe I could hide one inside the shell of a...
  9. Lighting: IBC tote as a projection booth

    Halloween Props
    Has anybody ever used, or has considered using, a caged IBC (Intermediate Bulk Container) tote as a projection booth for house projections? For those that may not come across the term IBC it’s normally a caged plastic tank on a pallet and the usual capacity is 1,040 litres (229 imperial...
  10. Strange Things

    General Halloween
    I went on an outing yesterday too a local wilderness area so that I could collect materials for my haunt display. As I was searching for the perfectly twisted branches I came across something rather disturbing. A set of teeth protruding through the leaves. As I cleared away the debris I...
  11. The Evolution Of A Home Haunt

    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...
  12. Lighting: A variation on the "swamp lantern"

    Halloween Props
    So I stood in line at Michael's for at least 20 minutes this past weekend with a bunch of people buying Christmas stuff and I wondered to myself "I wonder what these people would do if they knew I was here to buy supplies for next year's Halloween and I don't care about the Xmas stuff...."...

    General Halloween
    One of my step-son's senior projects as he graduates with a Bachelors in Digital-Media Production! I was honored he chose me as the subject of a small documentary!!
  15. Revenant Manor Halloween 2018: Witching Well

    General Halloween
    Halloween 2018 is all packed up and put away….all that is left to do is the annual ‘haunt in review’. We weren’t able to do as much as intended this year, as I broke my foot over the summer (ironically, while transporting a prop piece to the basement), and lost about 10 weeks of build time as...
  16. Electronic/Software: Spirit Graveyard Lantern Hack-My first hack!

    Halloween Props
    On an earlier thread I asked if anyone knew how to make the sound activated Spirt Halloween Graveyard Lanterns stay constantly lit instead of the momenary light after being activated by sound. A few replies, but nothing concrete on how to do it, so I decided to take it apart myself and see what...
  17. Pneumatic: Startle: Jumping spider

    Halloween Props
    This is a medium sized, rubber spider that is resting on a hidden air solenoid nozzle. When the victim presses a button on the control panel, the solenoid is activated and shoots the spider towards them. It’s about 90 psi, from a small air compressor. Added effect: place a glass dome lid...
  18. Static: Lighting stained glass windows?

    Halloween Props
    I made these 4 windows a couple of years ago and plan to use them again this year in our community haunted house. They will be hanging against a dark wall and I am trying to figure out a way to make them appear like there is light coming from inside the window. Everything I've tried isn't...

    For Sale By Merchants
    NEW PRODUCT RELEASE FOR 2018: THE PEECAN The Peecan is a handheld noisemaker for actors. Sounds that are common or recognizable are not scary, like yelling for example. That is why we designed the Peecan to make a unique sound that will startle your guests because they will not know what it...
  20. Atmosphere Effects: Fake explosions

    Halloween Props
    Anyone have experience creating fake explosions? I'd like to simulate a small explosion that would result from cannon fire. It would need run several times during the evening. I've seen examples using flour/baby powder and an air cannon....which would be perfect except it would need refilling...
