Hanging Torso Illusi...

Ok, I’m not going to beat around the bush on this one, I’m really glad I found this video tutorial for this prop.  Last year the Mrs and myself were setting up a last minute haunt for our nephews and their friends when we were asked (at the 11th hour of course) to create the...

If you’re in need of some vines for your haunt, just know that discozombie has got your back!  His technique for waterproof flexible vines is not only inexpensive but yields remarkably realistic vines with very little effort! You’ll start by unwinding your rope and stretching it...


 

Weather Resistant Tr...

I’m not sure how to categorize this prop, but suffice to say it’s an incredible and ultimately necessary prop.  Everyone that’s had any use for exterior video projection has encountered the problem of not only hiding the projector but protecting it from the elements.  The...

PVC Skeletons

Not all grave grabbers need to be motorized, and if you’re interested in building an inexpensive one that still looks good then checkout LastHouse’s tutorial over at HalloweenForum.  It’s a pretty easy project that allows for plenty of artistic freedom, but you will need a...


 

The Build of a GIANT...

Some props are big and some props are larger than life.  Rania Peet’s Build of a Giant Pumpkin tutorial falls into the “larger than life” category.  I’m not even sure I would want to attempt to duplicate this, I’m pretty content to just revel in its awesomeness....


 

Cheap Easy Skulls

In the immortal words of Dr. Kreepy, “A home haunt without skulls is like a cake without icing…”  And to the great benefit of us all, Dr. Kreepy has given us the icing (in video form) in his tutorial on how to make your own skulls using Great Stuff expanding foam.  There are...
