The Magic Of Remote Controlled LED Puck Lights

We had purchased a bunch of multicolor LED puck lights from Amazon back in 2019 to uplight our ghost props for our ghost themed haunt. They're AAA battery powered, remote controlled, water proof, and have proven themselves to be one of the most versatile cost effective haunt purchases we've ever made! Just need to make a bunch of display bases to hide the puck lights for all the apothecary jars we'll be using in the Frankenstein's Lab Bookcase prop.

Frankenstein's Lab Bookcase Prop Progress

Making some headway on the lab props that will be displayed on the custom narrow bookcase that will go on our porch (that's a July/August project). Of course the 60 oz. acrylic apothecary jars we ordered are too small for the hand props, but the brain prop fits just fine. Looks like we'll be using 1 gallon glass apothecary jars for the hands. Display bases will be built for the jars so that we can uplight them using our multicolor LED puck lights. More goodies will be added to the mix to fill up the bookcase shelves, but here's a teaser photo of what we have thus far.

Our 2022 Haunt Theme In Candles

The Smell Of Fear Candle Company posted this photo recently and those are the precisely the four standing/sitting full sized prop characters we'll be featuring in our yard haunt this coming Halloween. The Smell of Fear Candle Company made our custom "Caramel Buttered Popcorn" scented 4oz candles that we will be using in our jack-o-lanterns this year. Check out their Facebook page for all the interesting unique horror themed candle scents they release on a monthly basis here: https://www.facebook.com/thesmelloffear7

Moviegoer Skeletons Prop Progress

Making progress on our "Moviegoer" skeletons. We finished installing the red and blue jewel lights and 3D glasses on a second skeleton and got wigs on them. Wardrobe for the props will be later in the summer/fall when we also tackle dressing our Frankenstein, Dracula, Wolfman, and Mummy props.

What Are The Odds?

We announced that we were doing a classic horror movie monster theme for our 2022 haunt on this blog several times since November, right down to having "Moviegoer" skeleton props. So what are the odds? We're going to have a standing Frankenstein's Monster prop too, so there!😛

Attic Hatch Yard Haunt 2022 VerMonstrosities

Happy to see that the Attic Hatch Yard Haunt has started work on their new prop project for 2022, the VerMonstrosities.
Attic hatch is one of the most unique and creative yard haunts you'll ever see. It's basically an "Atom Age" giant monster themed haunt, with one of a kind, giant monster props that appear to be inspired from movies such as 1955's "Tarantula", 1957's "The Deadly Mantis", with a heavy dose of the H.G. Wells novel and corresponding movie "The Food Of The Gods". The haunt is truly a sculptural art display.
