We dream about Halloween all the time, really we do, and there’s actually only 260 days left until it’s here!  We are always looking for new & unique items to bring to you to enhance your Halloween decorating and enlarge your prop collection. 

We are proud to announce our new Cement Skulls for Halloween that you can use in your own “Home Haunt” or hang them on your walls in your home.  No matter where you decide to place them, these skulls will definitely become a conversation piece! 

Skull is darker in color while it's drying - Once dried it will be a light gray

Skull weighs in at a little over 3 pounds 11 ounces and is approximately 7 1/2″ x 5″ x 2 1/2″ and comes with a hook attached to the back.  Each skull that is made will be slightly different from the photo shown due to how the cement dries & sets, but these slight differences actually make the skulls more realistic looking.  When you place your order for one of these skulls, we will go to work and start your mold right away, but it takes about a week for the skulls to completely dry & set before they can be shipped.  And, for an example, you can even add some “eyes” to your skull, but they are not included in your order, as this is just an example of what you can do to your skull for a more eerie look.

We are here to enhance your scare factor for Halloween, so keep checking back on our website to see what we’re up to!  www.themesnthings.com


There’s only 51 days left now to Halloween, and the panic time starts to set in.  We definitely recommend that you start shopping for your decorations and Halloween props now before all the good stuff is gone.  All of the stores, from craft stores to KMart, are now starting to stock their shelves with all sorts of items to enhance your Halloween, but their quantities are limited.  Did you know that what you see on their shelves is it?  They don’t have stock in the back to fill the shelves back up, so once an item you are watching is sold out, it’s gone.  That is why we are encouraging you to start your Halloween shopping now so you can actually purchase what you want.  Don’t say we didn’t warn you! 

Anyhow, we’re stocking our inventory of some great items too, and we have some gruesome fog machine accessory props that we wanted to share with you. 

First, we have the BRIMSTONE DEMON, who like all the rest, actually moves from side to side while they pour out the fog from your own fog machine!  Pretty cool, eh?  Standing 2 feet tall, the Brimstone Demon looks to be rising from the pits of the netherworld – and then sprays the whole area with fog! Brimstone Demon has a hard plastic frame under his poly-fabric shirt & shroud with an attached 110 volt motor that turns his hand-painted plastic head with gaping mouth from side-to-side, and also comes with two creepy hand-painted plastic hands to complete the look. The 3ft long connector and hose attachment will fit onto most standard 400w, 700w and 1000w fog machines (Fog machines and juice sold separately. Connector hose is not compatible with Low Lying fog machines). Just stuff the sleeves of the shirt with crumpled newspaper, hook up the hose to your fog machine and let the creepiness begin! 

Next, we have the GASEOUS ZOMBIE that will scare the pants off your trick-or-treaters for sure!  And, if you add a black light in front of him, his clothing will glow for a great eerie effect!  Standing 2ft tall, the Gaseous Zombie looks like he is pulling himself out of the ground – and then sprays the whole area with fog! Hard plastic frame is under his poly-fabric shirt and shroud with an attached 110 volt motor that turns his hand-painted plastic head with gaping mouth from side-to-side, and also comes with two creepy hand-painted plastic hands to complete the look. The 3ft long connector and hose attachment will fit on most standard 400w, 700w, and 1000w fog machines. (Fog machine not included. Connector is not compatible with Ground or Low Lying Fog Machines). Just stuff the sleeves of the shirt yourself with crumpled newspaper, hook up the hose to your fog machine and let the creepiness begin!

And we don’t want to leave out the WRETCHED REAPER as he is sure to enhance your scare factor in your graveyard!  Prepare to meet your doom! Standing 2 feet tall, the Wretched Reaper has a hard plastic frame under his poly-fabric shirt and shroud with an attached 110 volt motor that turns his hand-painted plastic head with stringy synthetic hair from side-to-side, and also comes with two creepy hand-painted plastic hands to complete the look. The 3ft long connector and hose attachment will fit most standard 400w, 700w, and 1000w fog machines. (Fog machines and juice sold separately. Connector is not compatible with Low Lying Fog Machines). Just stuff the sleeves of the shirt with crumpled newspaper, hook up the hose to your fog machine, and let the creepiness begin!

Don’t turn your back on this animated SPEWING CORPSE as you never know when he will shoot off his mouth with fog!  Standing 2′ tall (24″), the Spewing Corpse looks like he is pulling himself out of the ground – and then sprays the whole area with fog!  Spewing Corpse has a hard plastic frame under his poly-fabric shroud with an attached 110 Volt motor that turns his hand-painted plastic head with gaping mouth from side-to-side, and also comes with two creepy hand-painted plastic hands to complete the look.  The 3′ long connector and hose attachment will fit onto standard fog machines.  Just stuff the sleeves of the shirt with crumpled newspaper, hook up the hose to your own fog machine and let the creepiness begin!  NOTE:  Fog Machine not included.

Although this girl is not a fogger accessory, you don’t want to turn your back on her either or she’ll bite off your finger!  She’s one of our favorites, the ANIMATED GROUNDBREAKER ZOMBIE and she’s out for blood!  This animated groundbreaker zombie is definitely Out For Blood!  Holding a bloody hand, and with a chewed off finger in her mouth, her head turns side to side and her eyes light up.  Fabulous for many haunted house or graveyard scenes.  Height is 27″.  Requires 3 AA batteries (not included).

PROFESSIONAL COBWEB MAKER
This machine has been designed and created for use by professionals in stage, TV, and Screen productions where special effects are required.  We are not responsible for misuse of this product.  This product needs a drill to apply the cobwebs.  (drill not included)

Includes the following:
Fan Unit
Cobweb Fluid
Cobweb Solvent

Directions on Use:  Secure fan unit in drill chuck. (Tighten securely)  Leave drill unplugged until cobwebber is ready to use.  Place fan unit in upright position, unscrew wing nut and remove cover.  Fill can one half full with fluid.  Replace cover, then the wing nut.  Plug in the drill and use with a sweeping motion to make webs.  With a little practice you will be able to control the direction and volume of webs and create effects just as you have seen in many major Hollywood Motion Pictures.  Drill must be set in reverse to send webs out from the fan blade!

Notice:  The webs may be difficult to remove from painted surfaces and synthetic materials.  You may experiment with various surfaces for removal of dried webs.  Also the liquid will mar aluminum, causing it to dull.  This is the reason to avoid contact with aluminum.

Caution:  Keep away from fan blade when in use.  Do not aim in the direction of people or animals!

Photo shows fluids in tin cans – product will arrive in plastic bottles.  The photo used is a manufacturers stock photo.

All of these items will be available next week, along with many more Halloween props & accessories!  You can find them at www.themesnthings.com – We’re Your One-Stop Shop for all Your Seasonal Needs!


So you are working on setting up your graveyard, you’ve got tombstones, you picked out your flood lights, some props, now it’s time to add some ghosts to your graveyard! 

We wanted to show you our 6′ LED Slender Ghost that we ran across last year and snagged this guy really quick, because the vendor only had a few on hand.  This slender ghost goes together quite easily even though it is in a few pieces and it stakes into the ground well too.  We were worried that he would sway back and forth from the strong winds we had last Halloween, but the stakes held him in the ground securely.  The ghost plugs into a standard AC outlet too.  But the best feature of the ghost is how “bright” the LED lights glow.  Your trick-or-treaters will be able to see him glowing from the sidewalk for sure!  

Don’t want to use the ghost outside, you don’t have to!  Since the bottom diameter of the ghost is quite wide, you can just put him together and stand him up in your house for an awesome Halloween decoration! 

We have a few extra of these ghosts in stock just in case you want one for yourself, but we’re not giving up our ghosts!  Check out this awesome Halloween prop at www.themesnthings.com and pick one up for yourself! 

 


Halloween is definitely on the minds of all Halloween enthusiasts.  With only 74 days left until Halloween, you all know that if you don’t get your props now, they will be gone!  Most vendors inventories are quickly depleting, and they will not be restocking, so that makes it harder to find that one of a kind prop to enhance your own home haunts. 

This is one of many of our items we have in stock.  It’s a 6′ Nightmare Screaming Latex Ghoul.  It is not a full-bodied prop, but it will do the trick when trying to scare the pants off someone!  This life sized Ghoul’s eyes light up red and is decorated in black tattered material with hood.

Prop does not move, but if you add a “Spinning Motor” (sold separately) you can make this prop spin!

Halloween is not all about the candy and it’s just not for kids anymore, as we know more adults now more than ever are getting into the Witching Hour and having a blast! 

Stop by our website at www.themesnthings.com and see if we have something to enhance your scare factor! 

Happy Hauntings!

 


Creating a Halloween graveyard is easy & a lot of fun to do.  These are photographs of the props and lighting that we used in our own “Home Haunt”.  You obviously need some tombstones (or it could not be called a graveyard, right?), then you can add some “ground breakers”.  Ground breakers are usually spooky corpses with only half a body so they look like they are crawling out of the ground.  You can also add some “static props” which are, for example, skeletons or skeleton hands, legs and a head that you can stick into the ground, as these props don’t move.  Other good graveyard props are animated ones, which sometimes need batteries to make an arm move.  Even some tombstones have animated reapers that rise from behind the tombstone and those type of props also operate with batteries. 

Proper lighting is important in a graveyard as it can illuminate your props and make them come alive!  By using different colored flood lights, you can create some eerie effects.  Try using colors like red, blue, purple, yellow, orange, and of course, black lights are also good to use as they make anything in your graveyard that is white, glow very nicely. 

When you attempt to setup your graveyard with lights, be prepared to use many many extension cords, preferably the darker colored cords so they blend with your lawn.  And, since you are going to have lots of cords running across your lawn, make sure you use some power strips by your house to plug in all those cords.   

After you setup all of your tombstones, ground breakers, and some static props, there is still another great effect that you can add – – – FOG!  By using a fog machine in your home haunt, it will immediately add spookieness to the witching hour.  If you already use a fog machine and wonder why your fog floats away so quickly into the night, you aren’t using the secret ingredient, which is ice or dry ice.  By running your fog hose through a simple styrofoam cooler filled with either ice or dry ice, it will keep your fog low to the ground. 

Creating a graveyard that is spectacular does take some time to setup, but the results are incredible.  Lighting sets the mood, but when you tie everything together, you can achieve an awesome home haunt that will amaze your trick-or-treaters & neighbors too!
