  1. Static: Foam board insulation-how do you get the 48"x8' sheets home?

    Halloween Props
    /scratches head. I know this sounds like a stupid question (and maybe it is) but-I don't have a truck-and I have to believe that I'm not the only one;) I can't find anywhere that will deliver the foam board used to make tombstones etc for a sane price. So that makes things a little difficult...

  3. What to get on Amazon?

    General Halloween
    Hi. I just got $30 to spend on Amazon. Any suggestions? I've got enough Alexa to make a haunted army already. The bone color Alien Crazy Bonez is at $15 a piece, but I don't need any more. I need something for my monster displays. Go!
  4. Foamular/Extruded Polystyrene - Where to buy in SoCal?!

    Wanted to Buy
    So, I LOVE all of the amazing tutorials available here and on YouTube, Pinterest, etc....BUT NONE OF THE PINK FOAM IS AVAILABLE WHERE I LIVE! What is it about living in Southern California (specifically the Orange County/Los Angeles areas) that makes it so difficult to find this stuff? To be...
  5. Fog Scents?

    Product Reviews
    I ran four fog machines for three different scenes at my yard haunt this year. I saw that they sell fog scent and thought this would be perfect for each scene so I purchased Swamp for my pirate ship, Electrocution for my electric chair and Haunted Mansion for my haunted walkway. I purchased...
  6. Ever Feel Like...

    General Halloween
    Do you ever feel that with all of the prep that we haunters do every October, that we are somehow missing out on the Halloween going on all around us? I sometimes do... feeling a little like Charlie Brown's sister Sally:"HALLOWEEN IS OVER AND I MISSED IT!" Don't get me wrong - I LOVE being...

  8. New to custom props: How much should I expect to spend per diy custom prop?

    Halloween Props
    I'm new to making custom props and am wondering just how much I should expect to spend for simple pop-up props, like trash can trauma or some other pop-up props complete with sound and lights. Is $100 per prop about right? Is arduino the way to go? Also, for air cylinders, do diy pvc cylinders...

  11. Help! Fat Guy Storyteller

    Halloween Costume Ideas
    So, I'm pretty huge into Halloween, but honestly, I've ever been that big into costuming. As a 6' 4" 320 lb guy, I don't quite fit the mold of many of the characters I find scary/fascinating. However, the school I'm working at is doing a Halloween storytelling event, and I'm going to be doing a...
  12. Static: Is this mannequin head too simple?

    Halloween Props
    I am horrible with painting. Well, not ALL painting. Give me 4 walls, a roller and a brush and I can make that room look amazing. When it comes to any other form of painting, I just can't seem to get it down. I have painted this head 3 times already! I am calling it done. Because if I try...

  18. Best Wholesale Toy Vendor Reccos?

    General Halloween
    For TOT, I give away dollar store type toys, but never pay dollar store prices. IMO, toys are better (and cheaper) than candy. Any overage can be stored until the next year. Usually, I manage to spend about $30 a year by spending $100 on a nice assortment every three years. It's time to...
