  1. General Halloween
    I write scary comics for kids (primarily ages 7 to 12), and I've been giving out copies of my comics on Halloween for years. This year, I'm planning to launch a Kickstarter campaign to fund a much larger print run of small-size, black and white editions. It's my way of testing the waters to...
  2. General Halloween
    we must be on the downhill slide to Halloween now....I have thought about new boneys several times in the last couple of weeks. What are we hoping for? Personally, I'd love to see the classic movie monsters and a really nice haunted house a la the Addams Family or the Munsters...gothic and...
  3. Tutorials and Step-By-Step
    I know how popular these are, and I LOVE the effect they give to just about any swampy or witchy scene. So I decided to make my own! I'll post some step-by-steps with pictures here in the coming days. I've seen lots of versions of these over the years, and I've watched a couple tutorials...
  4. General Halloween
    I was curious what the consensus is for outside decorations.* Since Halloween items begin to go on sale as soon as Memorial Day is over, when do you like to start letting everyone know you are "open for business" in October? We've been doing about three weeks out from October 31st. Does...
  5. General Halloween
    After setting up for 6 weeks, here are some photos of our Halloween production this year. I have over 100 photos and videos, but I have not been able to post videos due to file size limitations. I will be taking many more photos and videos on Halloween night! :D
  6. Halloween Props
    It's been raining nonstop here for weeks, now, and I'm so far behind it's just sad at this point. However, I thought if nothing else, I could get my giant fire dragon set up on the porch and hopefully that would build some momentum. ...except I can't get his dadgummed frakkin' lakkin' head to...
  7. Halloween Props
    Finished repairing the damage from last week's storm and decided to do a full run of the witch hut with all effects going.
  8. 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!
  9. 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.
  10. General Halloween
    Two weeks out and a bit early to tell but what's your long range forecast look like? We're 54/45 with morning showers. I could live with that as long as it's in the morning.
  11. Halloween Props
    Just thought I'd share what we've been working on! My fiancée is an English professor and I'm a full-time grad student so we generally only have so much time to work on things during the year while we're exhausted, but we've got a pretty respectable start! Most of the tombstones are from last...
  12. Halloween Music
    Hey guys, I put together a playlist on Spotify a few weeks ago with over 9 hours of hand-picked spooky darksynth music. If you're into synthwave, check it out and let me know what you think! I've had it on heavy rotation just about every day for the past couple of weeks. It'd work really well as...
  13. Halloween Props
    Out of all the props I have bought, I have to admit, LOVE this one. The pictures don't even begin to do them justice. T hey were a huge hit at the get together a couple of weeks ago. Beyond creepy Will post more of the living room later.
  14. General Halloween
    Did this last year and it was fun to see some of the replies. So how are you faring in terms of preparation and being ready for the big night, whether it be a yard haunt, walk through, or even a party.
  15. General Halloween
    One of our local news stations is coming up on Sunday to do a story on our display. We had another station come up three years ago to do a story and the turn out that year was three times what it normally is. With our display being up for a few weeks now we have had alot of people already...

  17. Halloween Costume Ideas
    So I am going to dress as a scarecrow this year. I picked up a real old farmers scythe from the flea market and I have a GrimStitchFactory mask. I cannot find overalls used anywhere, I have been looking for 6 weeks. I am going to be forced to go to a Tractor Supply store this weekend and buy...
  18. General Halloween
    Has anyone else started on their autumn pre-halloween outdoor decorating? Every year I enjoy getting my house ready with festive autumn planters, hay bales, pumpkins, gourds, scarecrows and more. I still need to add some lights, garland and wreath, that will be this weeks project. I'd love...
  19. Tutorials and Step-By-Step
    For the past few weeks I’ve been trying to find the Platinum chiffon at Joanne’s. Today I finally found a store that had it, and a person working there who knew what it was. It turns out that although the website calls it Platinum, it’s now called Grey Velvet. Lucky for me, one worker at one...
  20. General Halloween
    School literally got out 2 weeks ago this Friday (last day for most kids was June 15) & I swear on my cats lives that Big Lots is already moving in Back to School stuff. :mad::p:mad: We don't start school in MD until the day after Labor Day now so that stuff usually hangs around until then at...
