Is there anyone on here who I could get some singing face LOR sequences from for Halloween? May even pay if they are good. Typical stuff, monster mash, thriller, this is halloween, etc. I...
  2. Mermaid!

    Halloween Props
    I am dancing with delight! Our mermaid skeleton came today--well, yesterday--it's late, and I am absolutely happy. I was worried that she would be a cheap piece of junk, but no. She is beautiful, articulated, and a sort of weird grayish color that rather suits a sea creature. We got her from...
  3. Mechanical: Flying reaper help needed

    Halloween Props
    I'm sure most of us have seen the flying reaper scare on You Tube. I know he used fishing line and a hexacopter. I want to do This same scare on a much lower level; using a premade lightweight ( 4oz.) Reaper decoration. I am sure I won't need a $1000 hexacopter for his stunt . What would be...

    Here is the link to my album----> https://photos.app.goo.gl/JUnBwCGV57qMycib8 I was out of work due to surgery so I had alot of time to work on my costume 😅. Once I was feeling a bit more mobile ( and the weather let up a little - was like 94 degrees here-) I was able to complete the...
  5. Electronic/Software: FM transmitter for UK, are they legal if so what do you recommend

    Halloween Props
    Hi, I'm toying with the idea of projecting onto my house for Halloween 2019, I would like to also have sound. I'm wondering whether I could have speakers (on low volume) for ToTs and an FM transmitter for people driving by. Firstly, are FM transmitters (for what I want to do) legal in the UK...
  6. Hey Kid! You Forgot Your Candy!

    General Halloween
    Heh heh heh First year for placing this AtmosfearX little girl in a window very close to where the TOT's line up for treats. Ran the audio to an even closer speaker. One kid screamed and ran all the way back to the road!

  9. ToTs without costumes

    General Halloween
    Hi everybody! Sorry if this question was already raised, but how do you feel about ToTs (in my experience generally older) who come and ask for candies but they don’t have a costume or not even a mask or something? I don’t get too many, but they still annoy me a bit - I would like to tell...
  10. Lighting: 2018 House and yard setup

    Halloween Props
    It's my second year decorating at our new house. We don't get any TOT's since we live on a main road, but we do get a lot of cars driving by and slowing down. I have have two projectors running: second floor is a ghost bride loop and the first floor is a loop of sirens and wraiths. We have a...
  11. How Much Candy do you give out?

    General Halloween
    I usually give out a big size Goldfish snack bag (from Sam's) to any toddlers 2 and under and for the tots a full size KitKat bar. I can't afford the full size candy this year so I bought Mars chocolate assortment, Skitlles and Rice Krispy Halloween minis. I've never given out the small bars...
  12. Static: Throne of Bones V2

    Halloween Props
    So I'm revamping my Throne of Bones for this year. I do a photo op in front of my yard for the ToTs. The line actually gets pretty long, since they have time to stroll around our cul-de-sac. This year I'm adding more bones all over, and I'm debating how to paint it. I was thinking gloss black...
  13. Atmosphere Effects: Lightning (and thunder) in a Box Prop

    Halloween Props
    Here's my 2018 lightning and thunder in a box prop. PIR activatived, controlled by an Arduino. I've soldered a wire from one of the leds on the ka2284 which only illuminates with the thunder is at its loudest that then triggers the led floodlight through a SSR The plan is when ToTs walk on the...

    Halloween Props
    Putting together an electric chair and wanted to use a couple flash crackers on the chair uprights near area where the TOT's upper arms/shoulders are. Before doing so, I wanted to make sure there was no danger of shock or hearing damage with the crackers within several inches of the TOT's...I...
  15. What is the best compliment you ever received

    General Halloween
    Over the years I'm sure most of us have received our fair share of sneers, snickers, and odd looks as we spend the long months preparing for Halloween. I often wonder if it’s worth all the time, money and sacrifice. Then I’m reminded that it is. You see over the past few days as I have been...
  16. Facebook Hauntproject group

    Links
    I think one of the worst losses for our haunt community was when Perfessor Evil passed away unexpectedly and his comprehensive AMAZING build tutorial site hauntproject.com went down. We lost so much stuff when that site went dark. :( Dudeamis (over on our sister site Haunt Forum) collected much...
  17. Facebook/social media?

    General Halloween
    Does anyone use Facebook or other social media to promote your yard haunt? If you do, has it increased the number of tot's you get?
  18. our small UK display ( The Spiders Lair)

    General Halloween
    Well another Halloween has come and gone (well nearly) I've still got some of the display to pack up that's displayed under cover. But I'm in no rush, I'm so exhausted. This has been a crazy busy year with projects all over the house. I didn't start digging the Halloween bits out until the 20th...
  19. Wow where are the tots ?

    General Halloween
    We have had temperatures in the mid 30’s tonight. We had a total of 60 kids show up all night . Very discouraging when 10 years ago we were pushing over 200. I had a big list of things I wanted to make next year but now having second thoughts after all the time I put in this year. My wife said...
