  1. Prop How-To's
    I am surprised I have not posted this before. This is a slideshow presentation of how I lit my ghost on Halloween 2007. Ghost Lighting from The Haunted Library

    I watched Terra's video and i just loved that shaking werewolf and how it activated and then had a strobe on it. I know she used like a computer set up and i really don't wanna go that route. I basically want to have a strobe light (or light in general) be able to kick on as tot's walk past it...
  3. Light and Sound
    Another year has rolled around and I am again worried that my lighting will suck, largely due to the big ass street light one house over from mine that casts an amber glow over my house, the other reason being that I am using blue floods and blue CFLs to light up the yard and house and they just...
  4. Light and Sound
    I bought a 6-light chandelier identical to below at an estate sale $15. I've been wanting to turn it creepy for awhile now... What would YOU do to it if you had one of these? For reference:
  5. Light and Sound
    So I'm spent an embarrassing (maybe not here) amount of time looking at videos and pictures of people's home haunts. Obviously the type and amount varies with the theme but common among yard haunts is specific colored lighting. It seems to work beautifully in graveyards and to spotlight props...
  6. General Prop Discussion
    I have this prop that was made by my husband and now we are trying to figure out the lighting for it. Red or blue? Check out the prop below.... Not bad for just starting out with 2 arms and 2 legs.....

    RGB LED DMX Lights First, I need to give credit where credit is due. While I (like many haunters) want to believe we were the first to see a pile of junk and become inspired to say "I can make something out of that!" I am not the first to do this type of project. I think more haunters will...
  8. Light and Sound
    Last season we built all of our own LED lighting using this tutorial from Allen Hopps: They worked great for us! But this year I want to expand on the idea and built some multi LED spots and mini floods. I've got it all figured out as to how i'm going to build these, but i need some LED...
  9. Light and Sound
    I have an idea for a toxic barrel type prop and I am in need of bright GREEN lighting to put at the bottom, preferably LED and if possible battery powered. The barrel will obviously be filled with water, so I need to know if anyone knows a good solution on the cheap? I was thinking maybe rope...
  10. Technological Terror
    Has anyone tried using Fiber Obtic cable to get a nice, non-point light for something like eyes? I like the whole eye-glow effect, but really don't like the artificial point source of an LED. I was thinking about inserting a bunch of FO lines all around the cavity of an eye socket. Then either...
  11. Technological Terror
    Hi there. I'm a newbie to electrical circuitry, but I have done some simple projects with LEDs and 9v Batteries. I am making a bunch of LED spots and was wondering how difficult it would be to somehow control them so that they dim and different LEDs are light at different times. I'd like to...
  12. Light and Sound
    Here is my new project, or at least vision for my 2011 haunt. I want to do all DIY on the cheap great looking LED lighting that isn't all battery powered for ease of use and to be "green". Lets face it, a lot of the early DIY LED posts are broken or antiquated. Let's try to make this current...
  13. Haunt Tactics and Techniques
    I've struggled on just where to put this thread, please feel free to move it to where appropriate and thank you. Last year's display was done in roughly 5 hours with what I had in the garage which ended up being a Tim Burton nightmare which I loved, involving all my mannequins and a lot of day...
  14. Prop How-To's
    Something I use every Halloween: Fluttering lights. Be it for faltering electrical effects or fire. And I hate to just use a constant "on" light---even to illuminate my displays. I've purchased some flicker generators, but they cost (usually) upwards of $40 if you can even find them. (I actually...
  15. General Prop Discussion
    How do you light your Jack O'Lanterns? :jol: I made a couple of larger faux pumpkins last year in the model of Stolloweens and had difficulty getting them lit to my satisfaction. Candles are right out for paper mache... and little flicker tea lights just aren't enough. It doesn't have to be a...
  16. Finishing Touches
    I have a skull that is Dryloc'd and painted white inside with red LED lights. Why black inside of a prop when illuminating from the inside? I have always painted them black inside but why not use the white? Does the white reduce the glow or eeriness? Thanks, in advance, for the advise!
  17. Light and Sound
    Does anyone know of a dimmer that will fade one light out and the other in with a single controller? Or have and Idea of how I could put something like this together?
  18. Off-Topic
    Just a reminder to be thinking about those after xmas sales. It's a good time to get outdoor lighting stuff like colored floodlite bulbs, spike flood bulb holders, extention cords, lighting controlers, reindeer for hacking to wolves, and any other animated figures. So has you are out shopping...
  19. Technological Terror
    Special thanks to Otaku for digging up the how to for this. In gratitude and with his permission I am posting his PDF as a thread. Tea Light Hacking Instructions by Otaku Parts you'll need: Ultrabright LED 1 each (I used a white LED) Diffuser for LED (you'll probably need this as many...
  20. Haunt Tactics and Techniques
    This was my first year adding my Light O Rama system to my Halloween show. I did 6 songs and used mostly flood lights around the yard. People really liked it after figuring out that the music and light where rocking out to the same beat. I just need to figure out how to get a better video of it...
