  1. Do you have any limits regarding taste and decency when creating your yard haunts?

    General Halloween
    As with any decorating, certain judgement calls come up when creatively expressing ourselves through our Halloween haunts. I bring this up because I've only been having fun with this for a handful of years, yet I've already run into quandaries. Just in the first and second years in this...

  3. Boo Who's Rain Drenched Haunt

    General Halloween
    Couldn't put much out with steady rain all day and night - so I relied heavily on lighting and lots of movement. Used my Shiatsu's to "float" jack-o-lanterns in the upper windows and move my old scary lady in her antique wheelchair under cover of the porch. Had my fogger near the skellie...

  5. Super happy!

    Off-Topic Stuff
    I have been in severe pain for months and went from walking to hobbling with a cane or having my students push me in a wheelchair because I physically couldn't make it from one end of my school to the other in about a month. It turns out I had a MASSIVE herniated disc. When my surgeon saw it...

  7. Seeking disabled-accessible Haunts for inclusion in online list

    Haunts, Gatherings and Conventions
    Hey all, I run a wheelchair- and disabled-accessible haunt in Toronto, Canada. I'd like to compile a list of accessible haunts (home or commercial both accepted) so disabled folks* can find haunts that will work for them. It can be immensely difficult for disabled folks to find haunts they can...
  8. Mechanical: Haunted Wheelchair Thoughts?

    Halloween Props
    I bought this wheelchair to use in my display. I want to put a figure in it and I like the idea of the Spirit scarecrow that lifts its head and screams. The only problem is that ideally, it triggers when someone approaches. Has anyone moved the sensor on one of these props or have an idea...
  9. Static: Stretch Wheelchair

    Halloween Props
    Newest creation for my Asylum theme this year. Used a folding EMT chair/stretcher and a chopped wheelchair from thrift store finds.

    I am doing a haunted hospital theme this year and would like to have a old-looking wheelchair (that does not cost a lot of money). Has anyone ever built one. Plans? Any ideas? Thanks.
  11. Mechanical: Wheelchair prop mechanical (could be turned into pneumatic)

    Halloween Props
    So, last year a neighbor was throwing out a wheelchair - nothing wrong with it. I grabbed it up knowing I wanted to use it for a scare I could roam the neighborhood with. I took off the back (6 screws) and replaced it with a wooden platform for the scissor jack. I used steel L frame on base...
  12. Can I mount a smoke machine under my wheelchair?

    Halloween Costume Ideas
    Hey guys/gals, Since becoming paralyzed a few years ago, my Halloween costumes have become a bit more creative, because I now have a wheelchair and a service dog to decorate :p. Last year, I transformed my wheelchair into the Royal Carriage and dressed my service dog as the Queen's Guard (guys...
  13. Leatherface takes Las Vegas

    General Halloween
    I was in Las Vegas, Nevada recently and did some street performing. Sin City has a new sin! Is that the remains of Franklin in the wheelchair? :)
