Looking Ahead To Halloween 2022

Already starting to slowly prep for our Halloween 2022 haunt. The theme is going to be "Classic Horror Movie Monsters". We started collecting the masks over the past year and will work on the mannequins in terms of hands, feet, costumes, etc. over the course of the next year. Already ordered some new steel prop foot pads from Spider Hill Prop Works because we intend to build some new mannequin stand bases that are better proportions and want to replace the PVC foot pads. We want to transform our front porch space into a "mini" Frankenstein's Lab and will need to build some display bookcase towers that will go on each side of our front door. The 2021 throne prop will get some new "add on" accessories and will become "Dracula's Throne". Also intend to build a new standing candelabra prop that can use LED pillar candles versus the one we built back in 2009 that could only hold 3 small LED tapered candles. We're also going to build 3 new ornate pedestals for our gargoyle statues, because the 2015 pedestals are rather small and were quickly thrown together that year. And the two tall pedestals that were originally our 2009 cemetery gate columns are going to be retired. The mini mausoleum will serve as the mummy's tomb (it may get a new paint color makeover). We're also thinking of giving the creepy cloth on the house a break for 2022 and will go with spider webs since we now have the cup hook infrastructure on the house to be able to stretch it down and hook it to other heavier props like the candle lantern posts, headstones, etc. We might even play with some glow in the dark props and the new outdoor LED black light flood lights we purchased recently.


  1. Thats an awesome theme! cant wait to see your work.

  2. You've got a lot planned but like October Boy, I think the theme is awesome. It's gonna be a great haunt.
