  4. Static: Need help with my Pumpkin project

    Halloween Props
    To whom is reading this. I need help with a project I am working on for this Halloween. First, a little about the prop. I build this pumpkin out of cast material. The same material the hospitals use when you brake a bone and cover the area with casting material. I started with a balloon and...
  5. Starting over-best way to build flats ?

    Hello Forum, I have been off line for some time as in 2017 the local town made us an offer we could not refuse on the homestead. Long story short we relocated to a much smaller property and 2018 was our first year in the new place. I managed to get my yard set up and the neighbors and kids...
  6. Best method to decorate walls with paper cutouts/die cuts?

    General Halloween
    Just ordered the Peanuts cutouts from Oriental Trading. What is the best way to hang them on walls? Hole punch the center and hang on a nail? Hole punch and put a ribbon through? Grommet? My mom would always tape hers up, but they would often fall down, and the tape takes some of the color off...
  7. What is "safe" to store in an outdoor storage locker?

    General Halloween
    Hi, could use people's suggestions based on your own experience about what kinds of things you feel can safely be stored in an outdoor storage locker situation without having the contents being damaged from cold, heat or mold (due to cold temperatures). BTW this is in a commercial complex of...
  8. Electronic/Software: Projection mapping initial questions

    Halloween Props
    I'm thinking of doing a full projection mapping project for our house for 2019 Halloween. I used an AtmosfearFX projection into a window for 2018 and want to go bigger for 2019. My current pojector is an NEC MT1060 (2,600 lumens, native resolutipon of 1024 x 768, aspect ration of 4:3 and throw...
  9. Woodcraft DIY, House Of Horror with a $200 budget.

    Halloween Crafts
    Hi, This is my first post on the forum, and I'll have to admit that i found this at the very last minute. I work as a teacher for kids who are 16-20 years old and we decided to build our own "House Of Horror" as project for Halloween. I will here share what we did, and also how we did it. Both...
  10. Halloween Vandalism

    General Halloween
    Our neighborhood has been targeted by car prowlers since late last year, and now they- or another group- have incorporated Halloween vandalism, mostly stealing pumpkins off porches (and driving them a couple miles away to smash them :S), but also messing with people's props- so far, no reports...
  11. Other: Dungeon walls

    Halloween Props
    My theme this year is torture. Can anyone tell me where I can get wall/backgrounds that look like a dungeon for 10 foot high walls? All I can find is around 5 or 6 feet. I'm on a limited budget so don't want to have to buy extra to cover the extra 4 or 5 feet. I'm hoping to cover all the...
  12. And Then... Disaster Strikes!

    General Halloween
    We've been putting up a maze for the past three years, and we're always rushing around at the 11th hour to get it all done. This year we had the annual Spooky Empire event going on in Orlando, and Jonathan Breck, who played The Creeper in Jeepers Creepers was there, along with Jennifer Carpenter...
  13. Other: Looking for photos/suggestions for cemetery walls for a walkthrough

    Halloween Props
    I am going to build out a twisting walkthrough in my yard this year with animated props providing jump scares as people pass through. I want the walking area to be partially obscured so that they can't quite see what's coming up next while still retaining a somewhat realistic look/feel of a...
  14. Fog: Quick Vortex Fog Chiller Question

    Halloween Props
    For those of you who have bought or made a Vortex fog chiller - what is the point of having the intake and outlet pipes on adjacent walls of the chiller? Wouldn't it work just as well if they were on opposite walls? For example: the intake is on the South wall of the chiller. The standard...
  15. Static: Scene Setters - a good place to get them?

    Halloween Props
    When we decorate our house, we like to change as much of it as we can, and have used scene setters to change the look of the walls. We've used the stone walls, peeling plaster, spooky forest, haunted library and I think one or two others I can't remember. For this year, we've ordered some...
  16. Static: Walls: Are 1x3s or 1x4s too thin?

    Halloween Props
    I'm planning to use wood frames for the garage haunt this year (most likely covered in black plastic). I had originally hoped to find 2x4s or 2x3s for cheap at Lowes or Home Depot, maybe with rejected, aged, or warped wood. However, before I get too far into the preparation, can I go thinner on...
  17. Dungeon walls templates fast wall painting.

    Tutorials and Step-By-Step
    This may not be considered a complete tutorial, but it gives an idea of a more exact and fast method of painting dungeon brick. These walls are a thick polyfelt but I am sure the concept would work with most any haunt wall frames. Since I am using a material that may sag while painting, I added...
