  1. General Halloween
    Just got my candy yesterday, 5 bags of 250 count each, always get a lot of tots, hurts the wallet but it's worth it everyear!
  2. Halloween Props
    Not sure this qualifies as a "prop" but what the heck, the ToTs get a kick out of it.
  3. General Halloween
    This years theme was Dia de los Murexes. It was a little rushed due to a wedding I planned in September so I lost about 4 months of build time. The weather was great - sunny and warm. Everything went well and all the TOTs and parents seemed to enjoy it. Hopefully I will not be as rushed next...

    Happy Halloween! Sorry if there is a thread for this already, I searched! Looking for links to watch Live TOTs at someones house/haunt as I am not getting any TOTs this year. For example, Youtube. Thanks! :cool:
  5. Halloween Props
    Hi folks, I finally had a chance to put things together for a little something special for our ToTs this year. Since last year we have begun doing a sequenced light/audio Halloween show for our guests in the Month of October, but until this year we didn't have anything special for the ToTs that...
  6. General Halloween
    so about 7 or 8 years ago my house would get load of ToTs the past few years the numbers began to drop. we are in a city that is know to have a bit of a crime problem, but our neighbor hood is pretty decent. I always try to set up my haunt early so that people who just pass by might think about...
  7. Halloween Props
    I have been kicking this idea around in my head, but not quite sure how to create the proper look. Here is the premise of the prop and some background info. I setup a haunted classroom for the local elementary using the standard maze layout with pvc and sheeting. This year, while the tots...
  8. Halloween Props
    Brainstorming a new prop. My son has outgrown his orange Sam "footie" PJs, so I want to make a toddler version of Sam sitting on a mini park bench we have for the kids. As the TOTs come up, he will be holding his burlap sack. Using a servo & controller I want him to be alternating between...
  9. Halloween Props
    Greetings fellow haunters! ;) After the 4th of July is when my decomposing brain starts thinking about Halloween. When it gets going, trust me it gets going! This year's Halloween isn't going to be as bad as last year due to the fact that it falls on a Monday. The hood is anticipating...
  10. General Halloween
    Fooling around with the camera tonight and decided to try some pics for this year's haunt. Got out one of the masks and costumes and took a couple shots just to see the effect. This is one of them. We'll take several more in different locations using different masks etc and use them to promote...
  11. General Halloween
    I'm thinking of using a chromadepth feature this year. I've never seen the effect, so I don't know what to expect from the glasses. I only want to use chromadepth at the beginning of my haunt (probably on the floor, to simulate a chasm the kids have to walk over to get to the candy or to get to...
  12. Halloween Music
    Found this at the local pawn shop. Really nice condition too. I guess this is how it was done before cd's. Put an LP on and scare the TOT's :)
  13. General Halloween
    Here are our pics and videos for this year's setup. Unfortunately we lost our Dad this year. However since he enjoyed the day the family decided we should continue our tradition. Since he was our Halloween ToTs encourager / barker he loved getting people excited to visit our setup. We setup...
  14. General Halloween
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qPJTTYYeAls Here is a day time video walk through. It was taken the day after Haloween so things are a little out of place but it held up pretty well to tots.
  15. General Halloween
    We go to a local campground for Halloween as one of the downfalls of being the only one that lives on your street is no TOTs. There was 2 weekends this year that we participated in Zombie weekend and Halloween weekend. We did almost no decorating for Zombie, But we pulled everything we had out...
  16. General Halloween
    Was scaling down and also considering not doing anything because both my Dad and my wife got sick this year. Unfortunately our dad passed away last month. We were all devestated as you can imagine. Has been rough but my family advised that he would have wanted us to celebrate. He was our...
  17. General Halloween
    Horrible weather here in Oklahoma City. It rained all day yesterday (10/30) and into the early evening. Today, it's just wet, cold, overcast, and a slight breeze. Perfect weather for a zombie, but not so great for little ToTs. We don't set anything up except our cemetary fence until the...
  18. General Halloween
    Does anyone know of any streets in their towns that do Halloween in a big way? Here in Albuquerque we have a street called Forrester that the fire department blocks off to traffic from one end to the other to provide a safe place or TOTs and the majority of the houses decorate and participate...
  19. General Halloween
    So last year, our display was great. It more than doubled in size from the previous (first) year and was taking up the whole front yard plus roof. Mike and I worked our pumpkins off and made so many new props. The year before we'd only had 5 TOT's (we are outside the main well know...
  20. General Halloween
    I been seeing a few post that have some dishearting vibes about failed Halloweens. So I figured I would start this thread for a new angle. Disclaimer: If you don't want to read the whole thing the last sentence sums it all up. Why I Halloween. Well for me I have an Artistic side to me as well...
