  2. My new and improved Tombstones

    Halloween Props
    Okay so this year I decided to improve my tombstones. They may not be as fancy as some of you other haunters here, but I'm pretty happy with how they are turning out. So far I have finished 8 of them and have at least 4 more to go. Being on a budget I used 4' x 8' x 1&1/2" white ridged foam...

    This is my first post. When I first signed up to the forum I had a slight family problem. Now I'm single and back to learn some spooky ideals from you all. I have some tombstones, about 15 I think, that I made out of the cutouts of the insulated metal doors and painted. I have a few things but...

  8. Static: Lighted tombstones

    Halloween Props
    In the past the front row of my graveyard was a series of dollar store coolers turned upside down. For some I put the lid on the bottom for a bit more decoration. They hid the lights that illuminated the rows behind them. The trouble with these came at night because they were essentially dead...

  10. 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...
  11. Airbrush Tombstones

    Halloween Props
    I’m thinking about getting a airbrush unit for doing tombstones and a few other items. Up to this point I have been using tinted Drilock and washing a paint over that. The problem is all the stones basically look the same. Any good techniques or tips of using a airbrush to add some character to...
  12. Static: DIY Coffin Build

    Halloween Props
    So this year I purchased a rotting corpse from Distortions Unlimited and I needed a coffin to display it. Let me just say, there are NOOOO decent coffins to purchase retail! I searched because I didn’t want to build it this year. Well, I ended up having to build one. I’m glad I did because it...
  13. Shallow Grave Cemetery 2018 - Garden of Souls

    General Halloween
    Thy soul shall find itself alone. Mid dark thoughts of the gray tombstone. Not one, of all the crowd, to pry into thine hour of secrecy. The spirits of the dead who stood in life; before thee are again. In death around thee, and their will shall overshadow thee...
  14. Tombstone support * Question

    General Halloween
    What do you do to secure your prop tombstones to the ground? The mini plastic stakes they come with are useless, last year I used paint stir sticks and duct tape which worked fine. But this year it's extra windy and it's not working too well. Thanks!

  16. enlarging photos to fit on large tombstones

    General Halloween
    I know there is software that allows you to specify what size object you want to make and it will break up the photo in to multiple parts so when it is all taped together it is the size you need. Unfortunately I can't remember the name of the software or find it when I googled it. Does anyone...

I have been a haunter for over 35 years and a member here for just a few. The help I have gotten has made "Deadview" a very nice success and it has been...
