  1. Haunted house stuff for sale

    For Sale/Trade By Individuals
    Selling a ton of haunted house items in Roseville, Michigan....I would rather not ship stuff. I really don't have a ton of free time to be going to the post office constantly. All the items are slightly used ( only this season) alot are new because we never got them into play. I will consider...
  2. Static: Foldable coffin ??

    Halloween Props
    Work is about to get ugly for me so I need to start my decorative planning pretty quickly. I have limited storage room for any newer items so I am trying to make things as tiny as possible. As the title says, I am thinking about a foldable coffin. If I were to build one (not for actual human...

  6. Help! Fat Guy Storyteller

    Halloween Costume Ideas
    So, I'm pretty huge into Halloween, but honestly, I've ever been that big into costuming. As a 6' 4" 320 lb guy, I don't quite fit the mold of many of the characters I find scary/fascinating. However, the school I'm working at is doing a Halloween storytelling event, and I'm going to be doing a...
  7. Electronic/Software: Combining videos into a loop

    Halloween Props
    I have several video clips that I want to combine into a longer video. The longer video will be played back in a looping video player. I'm not concerned about audio. What's the best way to accomplish this? I've never done video editing before and this is about all I'm ever going to do so...
  8. Is 2018 a down year (for outdoor stuff)?

    General Halloween
    I live in MN where school doesn't start until after Labor Day. That means stores just put out Halloween stuff last week. I feel like the amount of Halloween decorations (specifically for outdoors) has been on the decline the last couple years. My city doesn't not have a Spirit Halloween this...
  9. WTB: Very specific hanging vampire bat creature prop from circa 2006

    Wanted to Buy
    I have an old vampire bat prop that I like to bring out around this time of year. It's probably been 12 years since I got it and it is starting to fall apart probably from taking him out of storage and putting him back. Maybe I can repair the latex, it has a hole on the chin and its feet have...

    Has anyone ever used black shrink wrap for corpsing? I am corpsing plastic pumpkins and every one I spray black before I paint and dry brush. This could save me a ton of work but not sure on the quality.
  12. How did your toned down Halloween Party go?

    Party Ideas. Experiences and Recipes
    We had a great 2017 Halloween Party. Lots of people, food went over well, house looked great, fire pit, back yard movie on a projector but it cost a ton of money. It was our first year in a house so much of that was just growing from an apartment to a larger space but still... its hard for me...

  14. Floral secondhand wreath supplies?

    Halloween Crafts
    I'm wondering how offensive it would be to dumpster dive in a cemetery and rescue old plastic flowers and the like. Would someone consider it sacrilege? Could the cops be called? I just know that there's a ton of stuff going to waste that could be repurposed, but I'm just wondering about...

    Hi there! Each year, I host a Halloween party for the playgroup I joined when my DD4 was really little. The kids have liked coming over to see all our decorations, and I always have some fun stuff for them to do. It's a small group of 4-5 year olds, with a few younger siblings thrown in - less...
  18. Halloween Theme Escape Room

    General Halloween
    Has anyone designed or done a halloween themed escape room. Had a haunted house in my garage for 7 years and had to stop for many reasons, mostly because my helpers backed out, but I have a ton of haunting ideas. This year I was thinking of making an escape room using the props I have...
