I'd like to make a light that will accommodate 2 or three light bulbs/spotlights/floodlights so that one comes on, and ideally fades into the other. It would be used in haunted houses.I am pretty…Continue

101 uses for PVC - AZ Haunters

Started this discussion. Last reply by Rob May 16, 2012. 1 Reply

PVC!  It’s cheap, it’s flexible, it’s relatively strong, and it is another staple of haunters everywhere.  If you are wondering what you can do with this material, or how to work with it, you want to…Continue

With all the plastic Easter eggs on sale right now, surely someone, somewhere, has them with the split lenghtwise, rather than horizontally around the "equator".  Have any of you seen the lengthwise…Continue

Dec. 16 Tour of Pro Haunt in Mesa, AZ

Posted on December 3, 2012 at 9:24am 0 Comments

In the basement at Monsterland in Mesa, AZ, there is a haunted house.  

A professional haunt that remains in place all year long, but off limits to the public.

AZ Haunters have been granted special access to not only see this haunted house, but to actually tour it with one of the builders.  The props will be up and running.  We will stop in each room for 10-15 minutes to look around, ask questions, and enjoy our favorite holiday deep in the heart of December!

They have…

Steal Like an Artist

Posted on April 11, 2012 at 10:10am 1 Comment

I present you with some excerpts from Austin Kleon's new book, ""How to Steal Like an Artist".  Don't we all "steal" ideas, inspiration, techniques wherever we can find them?  

Whether you think of yourself as an artist or not, it's hard for me to see haunters as anything else.  The designing and construction of props seems as artistic a pursuit as sculpting.  Even those who don't build anything design their show as carefully as any…


La Isla De Las Munecas

There's a lot going on in the world.


So many places and cultures that explore themes similar to what we as haunters explore with our own little subculture. La Isla De las Munecas is a fine example.…

lol, I wonder the same thing, I was thinking about writing a blog post myself, so I came here and got side tracked with your werewolf post which I enjoyed very much,  then ended up leaving due to the time. I know I should get more familiar/ interactive with this site. Anyway loved the post, it would be incredibly cool it you could pull it off.

those are cool-looking.  I think that jar on the right is the type I'm using for brains, eyes, but these have alot more visual interest.  Currently I just paint the lids black and spray the bottom thirs with "frost"  which gives a great, somky look to any glassware.
