    General Halloween
    https://youtu.be/lQt5MAdXC2M It was a blast. There are multiple parts. Like 15. Most are like two minutes long.
  3. Static: My version of Brown Jenkin

    Halloween Props
    The Dreams In The Witch House is one of my favorite Lovecraft stories. Last year I made a tombstone that has the name Jenkin on it as a nod to the story and got the idea just before Halloween to make a Brown Jenkin to go with it. For those unfamiliar with the story Brown Jenkin was the familiar...
  4. Haunted Mansion Singing Busts

    Tutorials and Step-By-Step
    It's been a longtime goal of mine to make the singing busts for my Halloween display. I wanted to share how I did it, and make some recommendations for those who are interested in doing the same. First, I started the project with a budget in mind. I wanted to keep it under $500. Second, I...
  5. Mechanical: Advice for wiper motor and lateral motion

    Halloween Props
    I have this large wraith with outstretched hands, and I was thinking of hooking up a motor to thrust a zombie baby out of its abdomen in and out. This would be my first foray into DIY motor props and I could use some guidance. Take a look at the 14:14 mark of this video...
  6. 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...
  7. 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...

  9. 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...
  10. Electronic/Software: Tekky Light Switchplate animated Throw Switch prop

    Halloween Props
    Bought this Tekky Toys prop from Party City and just got it today. Great look and like it a lot. I know people are always looking for this type of thing for their mad lab displays without having to try to locate something like it to DIY. I had a halloween prop throw switch from several years...

  13. Revenant Manor Halloween 2018: Witching Well

    General Halloween
    Halloween 2018 is all packed up and put away….all that is left to do is the annual ‘haunt in review’. We weren’t able to do as much as intended this year, as I broke my foot over the summer (ironically, while transporting a prop piece to the basement), and lost about 10 weeks of build time as...

  15. Hickory Grove 2018

    General Halloween
    Wow, what a season. I am certainly sad to see over with. That amazing feeling of all the work culminating to that faithful night pure joy. It does warm my heart when the neighbors are encouraging and appear genuine in the praises they gave this year. Unfortunately, I was taking a final during...

  17. Halloween Decorations Yard Display - Boddy Creek Manor

    General Halloween
    My outside walkthrough. I took this video at the very end of the night after all the halloween party people left and we were already starting to put things away (which is why you can see some boxes in the garage - where we had a food display). Also, the area outside the garage is a little...

  19. Video Recording for "How-To's"?

    Off-Topic Stuff
    Hey all, I'm looking to build some props this coming year and figured I would like to record the process so I can post how-to's? But wasn't sure what would be a good camera option to record the videos? Do people have recommendations on what they use. I figure my phone/camera is not good enough...
  20. Tiki Themed Halloween 2018

    General Halloween
    Here are the videos of my Tiki Themed Haunt. There were supposed to be animations (a creep jumping out of the Tiki Bar and a moving Tiki skeleton) but I did not have time to get those working, had computer glitches and the tiki poles being the main attraction took priority. Also fog was...
