  1. What is in the Details

    General Halloween
    Some say God is in the details. Others say it's the Devil. Obviously it's neither; in fact it's a skull... What you are seeing is a pumpkin leaf that has been partially eaten by snails then sun bleached white as it has decayed. The images have not been manipulated, color corrected or modified...
  2. Fall/Halloween Candle and Fragrance thread 2019

    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...
  3. Static: Chuck the Dragon

    Halloween Props
    Hey everyone, meet Chuck! He's just a WIP right now, but I'll be documenting whatever progress pictures I take as I piece this beast together. The story here is a long one...so I'll wrap it in spoiler tags so it doesn't muck up this thread. ...and that's how Chuck came to be. He's being...

  5. Not all posts or new threads show up all the time

    Site Issues and Feedback
    I just noticed today after making a post in the General Discussion area and making a new thread under the Coupons Discount area that neither one of them was visible from within the HF section if I wasn't signed on. There was also another thread someone started under the Coupons Discount area...
  6. Mechanical: Looking for a thread for life size music box dancer.

    Halloween Props
    I saw where someone made a life size skeleton couple that danced as if they were on a music box. This was either last year or the year before and for the life of me I cant find the thread anywhere. Any help would be appreciated. The wife has wanted me to make one for the past ten years. We...

  8. Retro-a-go-go Mummy GID mask

    Halloween Props
    A little while back I clicked on a thread someone had posted looking for a large (like 3-5 foot) skull mask. While doing a search to help out (think someone else posted about Retro-a-Go-Go in the thread) I ended up at Retro-a-Go-Go's website. Had been on it sometime back for a tiki retro item I...

  11. How early do you start yard decorating?

    General Halloween
    I was curious what the consensus is for outside decorations.* Since Halloween items begin to go on sale as soon as Memorial Day is over, when do you like to start letting everyone know you are "open for business" in October? We've been doing about three weeks out from October 31st. Does...

  16. Lighting: A variation on the "swamp lantern"

    Halloween Props
    So I stood in line at Michael's for at least 20 minutes this past weekend with a bunch of people buying Christmas stuff and I wondered to myself "I wonder what these people would do if they knew I was here to buy supplies for next year's Halloween and I don't care about the Xmas stuff...."...
  17. Pneumatic: Yet another DIY pneumatic cylinder

    Halloween Props
    My apologies if this design has been posted many times, I sure someone else has thought of it before. And I agree with the experts here, use a real cylinder if building an elaborate and expensive prop. My props are for a hayride, I can manually operate and reset the props. This is a single...
  18. Western-themed Haunted House

    General Halloween
    I'll be posting a few lights on and lights off videos under this thread. This is not a common haunted house theme and so hopefully somebody out there will be inspired by it. I have also posted a separate thread for the pistols and I might do one for the pop up Indian as well.

    Halloween Props
    Any good website or thread here shows a bunch of motor movement ideas, particularly electric motors and props? Looking for ideas and linkage ideas to start making props for 2019. Been out of the Haunted house hobby for 9 years. Maybe air powered too, just not sure. Thanks
