    Member Introduction
    Hello, I'm from the upper Midwest, were it is snowing like crazy. I'm 56 years old and have managed a apple orchard and pumpkin patch for years. We did a haunted house and hayride in October. Unfortunately, the owners of the orchard have retired and now the place sits. The retirement has...
  5. Passing along a deal I found - Full size dummy

    General Halloween
    I know this isn't the best prop, but I saw that Amazon is selling a Full Size Dummy with Hands for $25.19 with $14 shipping. Deeply discounted from what I've seen it priced elsewhere. I'm using it for a Weekend at Bernie's prop...
  6. FINALLY finished taking it all down!

    General Halloween
    Since Halloween, we have worked long hours on every weeknight and every weekend and it's taken us until last night to take it all down and put away. There's actually still about an hour of work that needs to be done to put away the last few things, but it's finally done! We still have the...

  8. Pneumatic: Garage Mausoleum

    Halloween Props
    So, I've been kinda dormant with building for a while. This year I decided to go big or go home:) Early September I got the idea to do a crypt wall over the garage door, thanks to others on here. Well then I decided to up the anti a little bit and add a little "shock" factor. So, I started...
  9. A trip to Target - Crowd Levels

    General Halloween
    I was surprised. There were A LOT of people in the Halloween section, most displays and decorations were gone. There was candy left but even that was getting smaller in supply. I did grab 2 bags of backup candy *Butterfingers and Nestle Crunch* that were $2.66 a piece or 3/$8. I bought 2...
  10. Other: Barnyard nitemares

    Halloween Props
    We opened the haunt to the public last weekend (Friday,Saturday Sunday) for the first time. Some may recall that it was open for a party 2 years ago and then sat last year due to other commitments of the owner. Here's a video taken on Saturday night. This was later in the evening when a couple...
  11. Poop head prop for a friend

    Halloween Costume Ideas
    A friend of mine is having a Halloween party this weekend and wants to push the envelope. He wants to be a poophead (he used different language) and asked if I could come up with something to top his costume off. He wanted it to be gross. After some trial and error this is what I came up...
  12. Inspirit: An Unorthodox Halloween 2018

    General Halloween
    Howdy folks. For those of you playing at home, we've been more or less 'out of the game' since 2016. More because of a major remodeling effort. https://www.halloweenforum.com/off-topic-stuff/146531-unorthodox-2016-project.html This year was no different, and our big project was...
  13. Electronic/Software: Power surge effect

    Halloween Props
    Been looking online and can't find anything. Went to ROT Haunted House this weekend and they have an effect where the lights in the main room are always on but will begin to fade in out/on off along with a sound of a power surge. Any ideas on how to accomplish an effect like this using regular...

  15. Fryght Manor 2018

    General Halloween
    Things are starting to ramp up. As some of you know, I maintain a pumpkin patch in my backyard. This year I am really emphasizing my pumpkin display near my front door. I pretty much have my pumpkins set-up, now I just need to scary it up a little with lights and spiders. My goal is to get this...

  17. Static: The feeling of finishing your final prop of the year

    Halloween Props
    It’s a good feeling. Almost a relief knowing I am done. I’ve been at it non stop since mid July and am about burnt out. I think I made about 35 new props after only making one or two things last year. I can’t wait to set up this weekend. My final prop was a 13 foot tall demon tree king...
  18. Grr… Went from 3 to 1 fog machine

    General Halloween
    Figures, just when I thought I was going to have 3 fog machines this year… A couple of months ago, I tested our main fog machine and it was fine. The cheap 400W Chauvet and the 1000W no-name brand I got from Goodwill had seized up, so I put a 50/50 vinegar solution in and ran them, which...
