I have several props that I want to get done this year, I am already signed up in the Prop building workshop. Since the weather here has been rotten, I am in the slump of not doing anything outdoors (which relates to halloween). I am sad about this.. Could you guys motivate me to get off my butt and get to working on halloween props...

PRINCESS.... GET OFF YOUR BUTT AND GET TO WORKING ON HALLOWEEN PROPS!!! :p

I'm just playin... you know what gets me in the mood is listening to the soundtrack to Disney's Haunted Mansion ride! I also look back at my pics from previous years over and over to get me going. If you want to use another person's party and haunt pics for motivation, I'll send you a link. ;) Just say the word. :D Oh, and I can probably send you the file with the Haunted Mansion soundtrack too if you want.

Couldn't agree more with Joker..nothing like a little spooky ambience to get the creative juices spurting. Atmospheric music and watch some good ol' horror movies in your quiet moments.

There are plenty of smaller props that can quite easily be made indoors in the inclement weather... One can never have too many "extras".

So ...Grab that paper mache and QUIT SLACKING!!:p:D:D

I've been printing off pics of other people's awesomeness and hanging them up. :) That's pretty motivational for me...

There a couple of "How To" haunt dvds that really help for inspiration.
"Extreme Haunted House Make-Over" & "How To... Haunt your House". Extreme can be found at either bigscreamtv.com or orientaltrading.com. How To can be found at bestbuy.com

Hi Princess, I'm pretty much with Joker when it comes to Motivation. I'm pretty much in Halloween mode all year, I listen to a lot of the same music I play at halloween all year long, and I serf the net checkin out other people's Haunt pics, and checking out my favorite stores on-line that sell halloween decor year round. I also leave out some cherished halloween orniments "decor pieces" year round both inside and out. And I think about how I can build on or expand what I did the previous year. But Music, surrounding decor and physical reminders I find work well. But perhaps what I find most motivating is hanging out with like-minded friends here on the forum, reading and looking at all the amazing talent here, there is so much to be gained from both the posts, and minds of our very own here:)

And well, maybe this will help you a tad as well.;)

I kinda thought if you came across this video you'd be happy wristslitter, thought of you when I posted it. Weren't you the one who decorated you place up like NBC ? Loved the pics, if it was you, you should create an album on your profile page for others to look at. Might be just the motivation Princess needs:)

Gotta love the Pumpkin King without him, this board wouldnt exist, ok it would, but its nice to pretend. I said last year I wanted my NBC theme house on the news, so, I built more props, didnt quite make the tv news, but did make it into the local newspaper...I guess what inspires me is to really give them something to talk about, maybe not years to come, but even a few hours later would be cool. I met some nice, and if they liked it, I think cool people that stopped by to take pictures. When that happens, you are hooked. This board really inspires me... you all take this stuff to heart. GROUP HUG!!!
