    I made a Mortsafe for this year's display. The "lock" will be placed in the back and has a light mounted in it to shine on the displays behind it.

  5. Halloween Props
    VIDEO: https://youtu.be/fTJSfBQC-WI This a project I actually completed for Halloween 2017, but have been lax in finding the time to take some decent pics and shoot a video of it in action. I always loved the Grave-Digging Skeleton, but always wondered if I could re-engineer it in a new way...

    One of the last Animated props in my collection, a true collectors item. This is an Animated Talking Gargoyle. Motion activated, eyes light up, eye lids open and close, wings move back and forth and the Gargoyle talks with a moving mouth. Very rare to find one of these today and one that...

  9. General Halloween
    Saw that 40 of the CVS stores around the country will be closing. I know they have been a great source for many of halloween items and props over the years. Here's a USA Today article that lists the ones slated to close...
  10. For Sale/Trade By Individuals
    I have spent years on this site lurking through the many posts, yet never joined. A few years ago after a move I stored my entire Halloween collection in hopes that I would once again set it up, unfortunately that will not be happening so I have decided to start selling of my many props and...
  11. General Halloween
    Last year I did a Creepy Clown Carnival. It was mostly static because I got the wrong size motor for my wheel of death. This year I want to build a parachute drop ride with zombie babies riding on umbrella/parachutes. My issue is I can not find any plans or anyone who has attempted this. Has...

    Hi, everybody :) Longtime lurker of this site, but my husband and I are trying to really grow our yard display, and I decided to finally get more active in this community that has really inspired me the past few years.

    We've been hosting adult-only Halloween parties for years and have not been able to get in enough scares! We are looking to up our game this year to the max!!! We do a good job putting guests on edge with creepy lighting, sounds, and decor; sometime even paying a few people to help us with the...
  15. Wanted to Buy
    Looking for a few nice hooded monk/druid robes for this year's haunt. Can be brown or black, must have hoods. The Halloween stores sell a lot of cheap ones so those might work but something a bit heavier/nicer would also be considered. Let me know if you have anything you'd part with, how much...
  16. General Halloween
    After 5 years of the Headless Horseman, I feel it is time to change it up. I would like to be Davy Jones, the octopus pirate. I have found a few realistic costumes, but they are expensive, upwards to $3000.00 or more. Anyone here have a used “deluxe” costume or better that they ware willing...
  17. Halloween Props
    I saw where someone made a life size skeleton couple that danced as if they were on a music box. This was either last year or the year before and for the life of me I cant find the thread anywhere. Any help would be appreciated. The wife has wanted me to make one for the past ten years. We...

    This very unfortunate thing happened to my 60-inch skeleton companion, Vlad, last night. As I was loading things into a van to move, I picked him up by his spine, and the poor guy's spine just snapped in two. He was in a storage unit without air conditioning for quite some time a few years ago...
