  1. Atmosphere Effects: Star Trek projections from AtmosFX

    Halloween Props
    Something new from AtmosFearFX. Star Trek Beam Me Up projections. If you are a Star Trek fan, resistance will be futile! Not sure how people would use this in a haunt but sure someone will find a way...maybe the Borg are trying to board and collect alien species? or maybe you're a Discovery fan...
  2. Heart Shaped Box by Joe Hill

    Literature and Role-Playing
    I recently read Joe Hill's book Heart Shaped Box. I love a good ghost story. I was intrigued with the concept of buying a haunted item off an internet auction sight. Judas Coyne is a rock star who grew up with an abusive father and an enabling mother. Judas grew up in rural Louisiana on a...
  3. Prop Showcase: 2018 - Strangling Sisters Haunted CarnEvil Circus - Underway!

    Halloween Props
    Welcome to the Scariest Show on Earth - 2018! So we change our theme every year - which I don't recommend because the neighbors now EXPECT something new and different! I've been barely able to keep up with our website and the forum - but am determined to show some love here on the one and only...
  4. Star Trek Movie Uniform

    Halloween Costume Ideas
    I am a fat guy, and it's hard to come up with good Halloween costumes for someone my shape. This year my brother suggested a Star Trek movie uniform, as some of the cast members had put on some weight. I knew the Monster Maroon Uniform was beyond my skill level, but then Scotty's Costume from...
  5. Static: Kylo Ren converted to The Nun

    Halloween Props
    I'm a Big Star Wars fan, and so close to Halloween I dont have the time to look for a mannequin for the Nun prop I want to display for this Halloween, so I decided to strip down Kylo and dress him up to the Nun, Lol....

    Halloween Props
    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.

  9. More "Chicken Mache" Tricks

    Tutorials and Step-By-Step
    Monster Mud with half the fixin's? Give it a try and let me know what you think! A follow up project to my blue groundbreaker corpsing how to, this build is a space critter from Star Wars, but obviously the same techniques apply to a host of other props.
  10. Electronic/Software: Projector Hologram of the Star Wars Emperor

    Halloween Props
    Working on one of my final tricks for the year - to have a full-size version of the Star Wars Emperor appear, talk and then disappear. Upon starting this project, I quickly discovered that there are no good movie shots of the Emperor head-on and full-body. So, back to the drawing board to make...
  11. Lighting: Star Wars - Melting Lightsaber Effect

    Halloween Props
    Instead of new wall sconces like I build each year, for the Star Wars theme I've opted to combine a few different prop ideas into this. The effect is to have lightsabers pushed in to the Endor Base similar to how the effect was shown in Episode 1: Using the hot coal technique and a lightsaber...
  12. Static: We Need Droids for a Star Wars Halloween - Right?

    Halloween Props
    In between some of the larger props for this year's event, I was thinking - we need some little robots in the corners (ahhh -hemmm... Droids... to the Star Wars Lay People out there). So let's knock out a quick Gonk Droid - AND an Interrogator Droid (See later pages for this guy)... What...
  13. Mechanical: Full-Size General Grievous Prop - Star Wars Villain with Spinning Lightsabers

    Halloween Props
    He may not be the biggest fan favorite, but he sure is a unique villain within the Star Wars Universe. I'm building this prop to include in our Halloween experience this year - "The Dark Side of the Force" to create an ominous presence for the Episode 1-3 generation. For this project, I'm...
  14. Static: Darth Vader Mannequin - Star Wars Dark Side of the Force

    Halloween Props
    Hey everyone - Here's my take on building a full-size Darth Vader Mannequin for Halloween, and was made mostly out of PVC, Cardboard, and Duct Tape (plus cloth cape and movie helmet). He stands at 6' 7" and even talks (okay - I picked up a toy voice box from the Goodwill). The helmet was a bit...
  15. Hallmark Ornaments 2016

    General Halloween
    I know it doesn't seem like it's time for Halloween let alone Christmas but Hallmark thinks otherwise because I just got an email that the Dreambook is out. The actual ornament premiere isn't until July 9...

  19. Star Wars

    Off-Topic Stuff
    I'm gearing up for Star Wars Ep VII The Force Awakens. I have a SW collection youtube channel in addition to my yardhaunt2000. I did a cool unboxing vid for a new BB-8 alarm clock. It also hows my Master Replicas lightsabers, Rubies Darth Vader Costume gloves, 13" Kenner Boba Fett and a Minion...
  20. Live long & prosper!

    Off-Topic Stuff
    Sadly, there's already been a fitting tribute to Mr. Nimoy in Star Trek II yet it's very appropriate today with Mr. Nimoy's passing: I shared a birthday with the man, he was such a part of my childhood with reruns of Star Trek, Mission Impossible, & In Search Of which just fueled my...
