  1. DJ Lights for lighting up trees

    General Halloween
    A few years ago when I attended Nightmare New England (pro haunt attraction), they lit up a section of trees with a very cool lighting effect. I'll briefly describe it but I doubt I'll be able to find the device that produced it. It would shoot random white points of light at the canopy and then...
  2. Gory Christmas trees?

    Off-Topic Stuff
    One day I will apply to be a volunteer to decorate the White House at Christmas...one day...& if I did have free reign (though I'm sure that would NEVER happen) I'd probably toss up trees just like these (or worse)! No matter what you think of the current adminstration, love it or hate it, set...
  3. Christmas vs. Halloween Reboot

    General Halloween
    This video shows the 2018 reboot of a Halloween light show first done in 2012. The lighting and music were orchestrated with Light-o-Rama controllers and software running 90-some circuits. There's a brief glimpse of the tombstone flippers and spinner featured in proof-of-concept videos posted...
  4. Hanging Stars or Other Objects in Tall Trees

    Tutorials and Step-By-Step
    For Halloween this year I repeated a light show in which Halloween and Christmas fought for control of the house ("Christmas Comes Too Soon, or, Halloween Fights Back.") The show required hoisting several Moravian stars into tall trees behind my house. I've since taken them down, all except one...
  5. Boo Who's Rain Drenched Haunt

    General Halloween
    Couldn't put much out with steady rain all day and night - so I relied heavily on lighting and lots of movement. Used my Shiatsu's to "float" jack-o-lanterns in the upper windows and move my old scary lady in her antique wheelchair under cover of the porch. Had my fogger near the skellie...

  10. Creepy forest graveyard help!!

    General Halloween
    This is my graveyard last year; I started on my own in 2012 and have added to it every year! I got lucky and came across some awesome branch trimmings to use as trees for a backdrop to my graveyard, but they are so skinny and hard to see. I have started to collect artificial Christmas trees and...

    All gone/SOLD as of 2018! Several years ago I was lucky enough to be the first one interested to buy the Swamp Tree Props from the Spirit Halloween Store in Santee, CA. The store was very small, and could only accommodate one tree display, but the store had received three trees apparently...

  16. Evil Trees

    Tutorials and Step-By-Step
    I wanted to simulate an evil forest for this year but was intimidated by the thought of creating trees. My experience tells me that Nature is tough to fabricate in a realistic way. But after viewing several tutorials (Mizerella, The Dark Gardener, Dave Lowe, and more) I decided to give it a...

  19. Static: Rebar Trees

    Halloween Props
    Over the years I've seen the trees to use as props get cheaper and cheaper. So I'm starting to weld my own strong trees. I use rebar and cable cut into short lengths. As you can see from the pictures I've tried to make them look scary.
