  1. Static: Paper Mache Artists, HELP!

    Halloween Props
    The last time I made something out of paper mache was in the fourth grade, so I am beyond rusty. However, we love the look of props created with paper mache and we're going to increase the number of projects that use it going forward. But there in lies the tale. I'm the one who's going to be...
  2. 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...
  3. Tiki Themed Halloween 2018

    General Halloween
    Here are the videos of my Tiki Themed Haunt. There were supposed to be animations (a creep jumping out of the Tiki Bar and a moving Tiki skeleton) but I did not have time to get those working, had computer glitches and the tiki poles being the main attraction took priority. Also fog was...

  5. Mechanical: Spirit Halloween Grave Digger Repair

    Halloween Props
    Hi All, I have the retired Spirit Halloween Grave Digger prop and it needs some repair. 2 issues: 1) The plastic piece that holds his head in place must have broke, and I can't find anything that will repair it (his head moves side to side and tilts, so can't glue) 2) His arm is supposed to...
  6. 2017: The UnOrthodOx major scale-back year.

    General Halloween
    Looking at it, this has really been 4 years in coming. For years, working on Halloween has worked as stress relief for me. That begun to change in 2014. I was out of work, and the Halloween budget was a casualty. In addition, being out of work I had different home budget and time needs...
  7. Making Lemonade: Unorthodox 2016

    General Halloween
    So. Let's sum it all up. The house is torn apart. The yard is a mud pit. It's supposed to rain out our party Sunday. There are those who just accept fate in these situations. For me, it's a question: Do we do the full yard walkthrough, or a front yard display? The present...

  10. When spring break turns into Halloween.

    General Halloween
    Try as we might, there's just no topping Mother Nature. We took spring break last week down to the Grand Canyon and Bryce Canyon. When Friday and Saturday turned into a rainy wet wash... That's when we headed into the park specifically seeking out atmosphere pics. Guard at the gate...

  12. Mechanical: Spirit Halloween Deathrow problem

    Halloween Props
    I bought my Spirit Halloween Deathrow in 2013 as a display. Today I turned it on and every time I turned it on it would start up and move. But then it would stop on its own before it's supposed to. And then it won't run for a while. Do you know what the problem is?
  13. School project, can we make this a halloween tour?

    General Halloween
    Talia brought home a little homework project. silly little story, but it pretty much boils down to a kind of chain letter idea. She made a self portrait we are supposed to mail around, the recipient is supposed to send a postcard back, and maybe a pic with the portrait 'doing something fun'...
