Already started the building process. After taking 2008 off I am ready to go. I am building a funeral coach right now and already have a ticket booth style prop that can interact with guests......the coach gets a coat of paint this Friday! A short video of the ticket booth is in here someplace in the props section.

That sounds awesome!! I'd love to see when its finished!

I wanna see it!

I haven't started buildiing mine yet, do to some problems, like my friends that usually help me aren't into Halloween as much as me...:D So they haven't helped.

Oh and by the way I was wondering where do you setup your haunt? Do you rent a fair ground? or is it on your property? Because I've been thinking about charging admission for mine, because the last 3 haunts that I've done were all free. :)

Thanks

I just use my front and back yard. Charging admission opens you up to a whole new set of rules in most areas. Things like permits, fire inspections, etc. We have never charged admission or asked for donations of any kind even with the 2700 TOTers we get on Halloween. This year we are going to take up donations for the local SPCA. When I get the caoch complete or even close, I will post some pictures....

Yes, it's a popular araa haunt and I guess the secret is that I have done it since I moved here 4 years ago and I leave the haunt set up and opened for people the entire month of October. If you have questions feel free to ask or simply post the question here on the forum. There are tons of people here with great idaes....

I checked it out and they wanted 14 dollars to ship 3 heads.......
I like the male heads....I bought quite a few of the female ones at the local Saver Thrift Store this year. The heads I have I usually put masks over, so if I can get the makeup right, $15 wouldn't be bad for 3 of those heads...

Homestead and Helix,

I too plan on making a funeral coach and would love to see pics as you go along. I probably won't start my construction until the summer

Guys, if you have a Sally's beauty salon, or a place that sells wigs by you- the heads are about $3 ea with no shipping.
They cost a little more at the Sally's here...and they do have some decent madeup ones, but I haven't seen any male ones like the one below



I did get quite a few of the female ones from Saver's Thrift store at around $3....they were "seconds" with little imperfections but they worked great.
