Hello folks,

I've been lurking around for some months now and decided I should officially join this great forum. I live in Long Island, New York with my wife Diana, who loves Halloween as much as I do. We're home haunters and try to up the bar each year making for better and more complex displays.

In addition to our crank ghost, animated displays, and some static life size figures, like our one of a kind Glenn Strange Frankenstein (right out of Abbott & Costello Meet Frankenstein) props, we finally started with our first pneumatic sit up figure for 2006. Although it had some "ghost" triggering issues, which we now know how to fix using a relay, it worked great. Most of our props are either made by my wife and I, or we've purchase some of the components and then completed them or modified them to our liking.

This year we're going to try to eliminate our triggered audio effects, which work using manually operated X-10 units. We want to go with something fully automated with motion sensors and we think we've found exactly what we'll need for this.

My wife and I are working on modifying our website to start showing some photos of our haunt. When that is complete, I'll be inviting you all to view it. Only a few photos appear on it now, and they are from several years ago. I hope to get the chance to speak with many of you and look forward to sharing our haunt photos and techniques with you all.;)

Welcome here Richie. :)

I'm new to this myself, but what made my emotions go overboard was taking my 2 year old son TOTing and almolst nobody participating in a dying tradition around here. So, I'm determined to do what I can for next year!

Welcome Richie - Always glad to have new blood on the forum. I'm glad that your wife also shares your passion for Halloween. I think it makes it fun to make props and share ideas when the better half is interested tooo.
