  1. Static: Cheap skulls

    Halloween Props
    Looking to see if anyone's got a good lead on bulk packs of skulls, human size or slightly smaller is fine, I need probably a few dozen of them. Plastic preferred. I've searched online without much (cheap) help, so any advice or suggestions are much appreciated!!
  2. 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...
  3. Static: Halloween Train Platform Build

    Halloween Props
    We've been doing the Halloween trains for years and have gone through multiple versions and train sizes. I decided this year to make it a little larger but also have room for some of our Halloween light up houses and to make more room for some of the larger train cars like the Ecto 1 last...
  4. Mermaid!

    Halloween Props
    I am dancing with delight! Our mermaid skeleton came today--well, yesterday--it's late, and I am absolutely happy. I was worried that she would be a cheap piece of junk, but no. She is beautiful, articulated, and a sort of weird grayish color that rather suits a sea creature. We got her from...
  5. 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...
  6. 2018 Might well be our last display ...

    General Halloween
    We're in the UK and have been doing a display in our front garden (yard) since 2014. In the five years it's grown a little with gravestones, earth breakers, full skeletons, occasionally a fog machine, and this year I had an Atmosfear projection in the window, so nothing fancy and pretty basic...
  7. A trip to Target - Crowd Levels

    General Halloween
    I was surprised. There were A LOT of people in the Halloween section, most displays and decorations were gone. There was candy left but even that was getting smaller in supply. I did grab 2 bags of backup candy *Butterfingers and Nestle Crunch* that were $2.66 a piece or 3/$8. I bought 2...
  8. Grr… Went from 3 to 1 fog machine

    General Halloween
    Figures, just when I thought I was going to have 3 fog machines this year… A couple of months ago, I tested our main fog machine and it was fine. The cheap 400W Chauvet and the 1000W no-name brand I got from Goodwill had seized up, so I put a 50/50 vinegar solution in and ran them, which...

  12. Lens for large rotating colored disco ball

    Wanted to Buy
    I recently bought one of these at a yard sale and a few of the lenses are missing. Does anyone have an old one laying around that doesn't work and would be willing to part with a few or all of the lenses? Looks like the lenses for the smaller ones will work also. Have been searching online...

  20. Guess a lurker has to take the leap some time

    Member Introduction
    How goes it, people? My name is Ryan (Ryry) and I was lurking on here again last night and figured I should just sign up to see all the fun.
