    Halloween Props
    I'm building a trash can trauma prop and want to weather the 31 gallon galvanized steel trash can, add some rust. I read somewhere that there is a youtube video on how to do this using muriatic acid. I can't seem to find that exact video. Anybody have tips on precisely what I need to do? (Do I...

  5. 2018 3 stall garage haunt

    General Halloween
    Due to potential bad weather I decided to put my display in my garage this year. Weather turned out to be nice but I will still do the display in the garage in future years. All animatronics were built by me over the years. I have 9 total. Next year I will work on lighting and maybe some...
  6. Shallow Grave Cemetery 2018 - Garden of Souls

    General Halloween
    Thy soul shall find itself alone. Mid dark thoughts of the gray tombstone. Not one, of all the crowd, to pry into thine hour of secrecy. The spirits of the dead who stood in life; before thee are again. In death around thee, and their will shall overshadow thee...

  9. Well it was bound to happen eventually - Halloween weater

    General Halloween
    Might be the first Halloween ruined by weather since I've been doing my yard haunt. The worst part is that it's beautiful weather until Halloween, 55 with a 50% chance of rain and gusty winds on Halloween, then back to beautiful weather the rest of the week. ONE day I ask for nice weather...

    Halloween Props
    I have a few store bought animated props I was looking forward to setting out for my haunt on Halloween. Had a great plan and bought 2 new ones with the said plan in mind. However there is now a 50% chance of rain on Halloween night, and I need to cover at least a couple of them. Will covering...
  13. Hey inflatable people. Questions

    Off-Topic Stuff
    Putting this here as I've just bought my first inflatables and have questions. While they are "halloween" inflatables, we're going to be using them for Christmas, so I didn't want to clutter the general thread. 1: Can you modify inflatables? We'd like to add santa hats, for instance, if...
  14. Good/Bad weather- whether or not

    General Halloween
    It's still 2 weeks out but the forecast for my town is remaining at rain. I sure hope it changes to a decent day and night. I really need the 29th through Nov 1st to cooperate. I can manage with less, but that's ideal. I hope everyone eeks out good weather this year! Good luck!
  15. I can't believe we only have 2 weeks!

    General Halloween
    The house is mostly ready. My costume isn't and mioght not be but I can live with that. The real issue is I feel so cheated this years by the weather. I feel like I haven't really gotten to enjoy the season this year.
  16. Weather played a huge factor for setup

    General Halloween
    We always set up our display over Labor Day weekend and it is ready to turn the lights on on Monday night. Well for the first time that I remember the weather has put a huge damper on the set up. It rained the entire weekend and at this point we only have about half of the display up and none...
  17. Predicting weather for Halloween

    General Halloween
    Does anyone use a weather site that is somewhat accurate for predicting precipitation/temps on Halloween? My magic ball just doesn’t seem to do it! Unfortunately, mybig props are not water resistant. Am I grasping at straws? There is a reason Missouri is also called the state of Misery!

  19. Weathering Weather - Advice For Surviving Inclement Conditions

    General Halloween
    As I look out the den window to the front lawn and driveway, I'm reminded Ma Nature cares not a whit if you've got Halloween props spread out all over the place. The winds are gusting to 60mph (90kph) this afternoon and will continue to wreak their unyielding havoc well into tomorrow. In the...
  20. I Can't Do Anything! (another Mother Nature rant)

    General Halloween
    I'm stuck in a state of only partially getting things done! I want to finish putting things out, but they're calling for a huge storm on Sunday night and high winds all day Monday. At this point, I shouldn't even bother putting the rest of my items out, because I will literally just be making...
