  3. What is "safe" to store in an outdoor storage locker?

    General Halloween
    Hi, could use people's suggestions based on your own experience about what kinds of things you feel can safely be stored in an outdoor storage locker situation without having the contents being damaged from cold, heat or mold (due to cold temperatures). BTW this is in a commercial complex of...
  4. Tombstone Flipper, Spinner Follow-Up

    Tutorials and Step-By-Step
    In the summer I posted two proof-of-concept videos about pneumatic props that could switch back and forth between being Christmas or Halloween decorations. I wanted them for a "Christmas vs. Halloween" display during trick-or-treat. I thought I should show the end result--not great but...
  5. Solar spotlights on sale?

    General Halloween
    Now that it's officially fall I know a lot of stores have their "summer" items including landscaping accessories on sale. Anyone come across a good buy on solar-powered spotlights? I'd love to pick up a few more for a good price.

  7. 2018 UK Halloween

    General Halloween
    Hi all I really enjoyed this thread last year, and loved having a little group of common interest in the UK, so thought I would start another one for this year. I know it's early, but I'm getting excited for this year already! I'm really looking forward to things filtering through to the shops...

  9. Spring and Summer items for later Halloween use

    General Halloween
    Every year I always forget that this stuff disappears at the end of summer and inevitably I will need more. So just posting this up as a reminder to all that dollar stores and such have pool noodles out and more to come. Last year my dad called in October and asked if I had any beach balls and...
  10. Other: Need storage ideas for the ghost, please.

    Halloween Props
    So I have had her done a while. She's going to have to spend Summer in the garage. I originally wanted to be able to strip the mannequin and store the dress and wig inside but that didn't work and it's all hot glued in place so she is going to be as is, in the garage. She is on a really heavy...
  11. Anyone run into issues with their theme?

    General Halloween
    After decades of home haunting, this is actually my first year with a theme - zombies. I started planning so early (November) and by the time I got to the beginning of summer, I thought of some cool things to do but they weren't zombie themed - especially projections. As the summer went on, I...

  13. Anyone else lost their Halloween spirit?

    General Halloween
    I don't know whether it's the hot weather or that I have way too many outdoor house projects that need to be completed that's stolen my Halloween spirit, but I came to a complete stop with my builds. I'm struggling to get back into the spirit and plan the rest of my builds. I really think it's...

    Off-Topic Stuff
    The sky is falling! Or I think it is - there's water falling and electricity arcing from the sky! Oh, wait...I just looked it up on Google...the water is called "raayyynne" I believe, and apparently electricity DOES travel from sky to earth... It just NEVER happens here in summer, or...
  16. THe Natural Sounds of Fall

    General Halloween
    Depending on where you live, there are some natural sounds that follow the changing of the seasons. We live in Pa. on a mountain, with several acres and tons of forest all around. I can tell summer is growing long since the cicadas have started droning away during the day and into the evening...

  20. We All Go A Little Mad Sometimes...

    Member Introduction
    Good Afternoon! Don't let the title of this thread fool you, it's just a little attempt at humor. I've been on the prowl for a new horror forum to join since the last one I was on went down in flames. I'm a big horror fan and have been since the summer of '95. The first horror film I ever...
