It's August 14th and I haven't made one prop! What?!
Plans are underway for : Siamese Twins, Sword Swallower and hopefully a Figi Mermaid.

For a short cut, At Home stores have a Siamese twin and mermaid skeleton. The mermaid was around $8, I think the twin skelly was even less.

Do some searches for carnival/circus/carnevil on here - there are TONS of awesome threads, but there might be some issues with older threads if the images were linked from Photobucket (they have blocked image sharing unless paid subscription of $400/yr, and anyone that hasn't paid, the images won't show up any more. :( )

But do be aware that this theme is HIGHLY addictive! :D


I did a carnival theme a few years ago for a jumping off point but I don't have the best stuff...

I have a few photos in my albums from last years Carn-evil

Our big prop was the scary-go- round I found the tutorial on the forum. I made a couple of packing tape horses for it. The elephant butts and one of the circus cages were purchases from a haunt that closed shop. Made a second using a free craigslist wooden crate and of all things the side of a recalled baby crib. The side show banners we did over a couple of nights using Harbor Freight canvas dropcloths. Projecting an image of a side show banner onto it and then using a small Harbor Freight spray painter colored it in. There are tutorials on here on how others have done them. As for my oddities and my fortune teller I was gifted some great items in the various reaps last year.

My friend and I actually hold a halloween carnival in his backyard with three or four games for kids to play. It's a great hangout for parents and kids. It's not scary at all though.
