Halloween 2K12

Happy October everyone!

I'm a nut when it comes to Halloween. I see October 1st as the start of the Halloween season. Every year I create a new prop. Whether it be an animatronic, ground-breaker, etc...

Thinking on making a zip-line, mat-triggered witch this year, but I will need significant fog to mask the line - I will post my progress.

Here was my haunt from a couple years ago:

Anyone else as into the 31st as I am?

You remind me a lot of my neighbor when I lived in Huntersville. He was a huge Halloween junkie and his yard/house was incredible. He had animatronics, zip lines, sound, fog machines, etc... He built his front yard into a massive and elaborate graveyard. Then he built his backyard into a haunted trail for the kids and hired some of the teenagers in the neighborhood to work it.

He had people from all over the area that used to come in jsut to see it. He added pieces every year, so there was always something new.

Very cool to be that into it.

I love halloween in my hood. The parents have made drink or treat wagons they pull their wagons and youngins around and drink or treat the night away.

We do the same in our neighborhood. Everyone carries or pulls their cooler. Tehre are about 10 houses that replenish our stash as we move through the neighborhood. Dads like to stay out longer than the kids.

That's great! It's a really fun seasonal thing to get into -- I hope the kids I intend to scare are as into as I was at their age.

Trying to finally succeed at a Pepper's Ghost this year. The past 2 years, the illusion works if nobody wanders to the other side of the porch and sees the effect, so I'm thinking of a live distraction on top of a lightning machine that should keep them at bay.

Dyslexic stripper? please explain

Start with nothing on and put on something little by little. Lol

Crockett is the better move.
