    This is my first post, but I have been following for the last 3 years for ideas and have found this forum to be very inspiring and informative! I really want to go all out and make my yard a lot scarier and more interactive (some sort of walkthrough or path) but I have no idea where to...

    Hi everyone, here's what I have in mind. My garage is too small for a "garage haunt", and besides, it also serves as my workshop (never parked a car in there ever since we moved into the place). I do have a huge driveway, though (over 5 meter wide, 20 meter long), big enough for an 8x4 meter...

    I'm building a trash can trauma prop and want to weather the 31 gallon galvanized steel trash can, add some rust.

    I made a prosthetic claw out of foam for a zombie walk and now I wish to make it better. I want sparks when the claw ends touch. Fright Props used to sell "Spark Gloves" that were battery operated and safe for user and others. Unfortunately they don't sell those anymore and I can't find any...

    It's been raining nonstop here for weeks, now, and I'm so far behind it's just sad at this point. However, I thought if nothing else, I could get my giant fire dragon set up on the porch and hopefully that would build some momentum. ...except I can't get his dadgummed frakkin' lakkin' head to...

    For those with tall outdoor pumpkin scarecrows, sentinels, etc ... is there a consensus best ways to illuminate them? This is all still pretty new to me, (though I have picked up the aesthetic part quick) but right now I'm just not sure how you're lighting up your pumpkins when they're 6,7, 8...
