  1. DJ Lights for lighting up trees

    General Halloween
    A few years ago when I attended Nightmare New England (pro haunt attraction), they lit up a section of trees with a very cool lighting effect. I'll briefly describe it but I doubt I'll be able to find the device that produced it. It would shoot random white points of light at the canopy and then...

  3. Animated GraveDigger

    Tutorials and Step-By-Step
    This is an animated Gravedigger prop I made. It's mostly recycled from old props and molds I had in the garage, but I animated it in the "leering ghost" kind of way (bent PVC attached to upper body and running on a slow window motor). I attached mine to the window roller motor with Home Depot...

  7. Static: Bad moon on the bayou

    Halloween Props
    Sorry all, I could not figure out how to rotate the pics. :( This year, my wife challenged me to create a theme based on a swamp or bayou. I started with some old fence panels turned on their side and attached. I added a porch of pallets and cut one pallet in half to create a dock. The...
  8. Other: Melting Tombstone

    Halloween Props
    This is the back (fortunately) of the new Remus Lupin stone we made this year. We've been setting our graveyard up for years and this never happened before - we must have just put this one in the wrong spot. Sunlight reflected off a window and melted the foam away. Anyone else ever had this...

    Halloween Props
    Hey all, I have a bay window (actually 2) in the front of my house and want to FOAM board them up, but not sure how to attach them. Any help/thoughts is greatly appreciated... each pane is at a slight angle. One thought is to anchor sides and then build the middle panes from attaching to the...

    Halloween Props
    Hey guys I seen a post here about window projector material but I don't want to use a sheet. Also someone said NOT to use a frosted material. Im thinking of a white translucent vinyl, would that work and does anyone have some links to amazon for brands they have tested. I hate the effect the...
  13. Static: Lighting stained glass windows?

    I made these 4 windows a couple of years ago and plan to use them again this year in our community haunted house. They will be hanging against a dark wall and I am trying to figure out a way to make them appear like there is light coming from inside the window. Everything I've tried isn't...
  14. Wind Damage Last week

    General Halloween
    As many of you know, we got hit bad by the remains of Hurricane Michael last week. The witch hut was completely demolished and many of the props inside were damaged, the witch got toppled, but due to her mostly wire construction she was undamaged. Had three tombstones broken and most others...
  15. My 2017 Halloween Display

    General Halloween
    Hi, I never got around to posting my last years display. It went down well, got some nice comments on the night and even made a couple of kids run back to their parents crying. I know that sounds cruel, but secretly I was a little proud. Most the ToT's are small children dressed up, but I did...

  17. Questions about those window crasher ghosts?

    General Halloween
    I just came across these and looking to get one. Are there any specific brands you recommend? I see some for $10 then up to $80. Is there really a difference? I'm thinking of just buying a stuffed ghost, slice it in half and add a magnet to the bottom and stick it to the outside of the window...
  18. Other: Samara's well window prop

    Halloween Props
    I got the big lots "graveyard ghost" to use as Samara. I think Id like to put her in the bay window, so I needed a small well. I used a hamper, the fabric kind that you use a liner with. But I think a cardboard box would work just as well. It doesnt look so rectangular once you get the foil...
  19. Static: shack help / need advice from builders

    Halloween Props
    So here's my idea. I found this awesome window curbside on the way into work one day. I have the thought to making a shack for it, but making it collapsible (because no storage). So basically, a 4'x8' sheet of plywood for the back. the sides would be 2 - 1'x8' strips, but hinged in the...

    General Halloween
    I am new to HF but have been haunting the neighborhood for years! I want to add some effects with animation via a projector and wonder if anyone is doing this and, if so, what projector you are using, including any limitations. I don't know yet if I will want to project on a window from inside...
