  1. General Halloween
    I didn't see this thread yet so I thought I'd start it. I was at a Yankee Candle store for the Semi Annual Sale and saw that they had some early fall scents out. The four melt cups I purchased are Golden Chestnut, Farmstand Festival, Ciderhouse, and Dried Lavender & Oak. I think there was...
  2. Halloween Props
    Hi, Here's my take in the AtmosFX unliving portrait. Controlled by a Raspberry Pi Zero, PIR activated. The project would be a lot simpler if the monitor had hdmi and USB, but it was a old monitor by father was going to throw away and I thought I know what I can use that for.
  3. General Halloween
    we must be on the downhill slide to Halloween now....I have thought about new boneys several times in the last couple of weeks. What are we hoping for? Personally, I'd love to see the classic movie monsters and a really nice haunted house a la the Addams Family or the Munsters...gothic and...

    This very unfortunate thing happened to my 60-inch skeleton companion, Vlad, last night. As I was loading things into a van to move, I picked him up by his spine, and the poor guy's spine just snapped in two. He was in a storage unit without air conditioning for quite some time a few years ago...
  5. Halloween Props
    I was looking for something to cast a large dinosaur image on our 2-story house's side wall when we set up for our dino haunt and can't wait to try out. It's 15W and hoping it will be bright enough to do what I want and still be creepy lighting. Just ordered it from Amazon. It's a set of...
  6. Halloween Props
    I love Jack O'Lanterns and I just never have enough! We have a big front yard that needs...subtle, fun haunting for families and young kids. Something magical. I want to create a pumpkin patch of sorts, all full of different faces etc that my kids and I carve. In the past, on a small scale...
  7. Member Introduction
    Hey there, just joined the group and thought I'd say "Hi". My wife and I just bought a new house in SC and we're looking forward to our first year of decorating. Of course I've already started by hanging up a few props in my office. They keep me company since I work from home. :D
  8. Halloween Props
    Hello all! On good old Marketplace, I was able to buy two 60" poseable skeletons for a combined $10. Couldn't pass that up! They're the good ones too. Anyhow! Got me to thinking about All Hallows Eve this year. I've always done spiders, as it's what I hate, and wanted to share the fear...

    New BIG SCARY SHOW – HAUNTCON 2019 WRAPUP Episode 177 Badger took advantage of his time in the Big Easy, enjoying the New Orleans hospitality and food, and he still was able to cover the convention! With booth babe Sylvia Viles watching the booth, he managed interviews with Dark Illusions...
  12. Haunted Humor
    I've recently binge watched Stranger Things 1&2, and I came with a dustin joke meme. Fans of the show may appreciate this (I hope:confused:)
  13. General Halloween
    I freakin loved this movie.I thought it was good from the very start to the very end. I did buy the animated nun prop from party city and really was pleased with her. The movie is filled with halloween ideas but this one scene is super simple and to me would be erie.I couldnt find the exact...

  16. 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...
  17. General Halloween
    Not sure on were this should be posted so if this is the wrong area, please put it its proper category. I saw this web site and thought maybe there might be some haunters out there that might like this collectors item. Thought maybe for the kids or whatever. Just wanted to pass this along...
  18. Party Ideas. Experiences and Recipes
    One year when I was thinking about doing a murder scene theme for my haunt (and know some of you plan for murder mystery parties so posting here as a result), I was looking at different ready-made police line up scene setters to use. Kind of hate spending a lot of money on stuff like this for...
  19. Halloween Props
    Thought I'd share a head turner prop which was shortly made into a Christmas tree oscillator. I used a couple of pieces 1/2 threaded pipe, 3/4 PVC, 1' aluminum flat bar, some crap plywood, and a couple of nuts and bolts. The angle wiper motor mounting plate was bought from Frightprops. I'll...
