Aging Without the Wait!

by JustJimAZ on 08-24-2011 at 01:36 PM
I find when I keep a "beginner's mind" I often gain insight on subjects that I otherwise would assume I "knew" all about. Most of us age our props - or at least sully them. In this video, we see simple techniques for aging that are used to great effect on metal props. In the spirit of keeping a "beginner's mind", I share it.

Licorice jars of evil!

by JustJimAZ on 08-23-2011 at 02:15 PM
Apparently someone sells 5.5 pound jars of Red Vines! 4 of these things showed up at work one day. Two of them have been eaten so far, and I expect the other two any day now.
I'm probably going to distress/age the jars more before Halloween, but in case anyone is looking for something like this, I thought I'd post:



Same painting techniques used for these.

I love this little video on puppet making from Jim Henson himself. I have said before that I see haunters as "makers with a theme". While Mr. Henson is clearly NOT creating Halloween themed puppets here, isn't he demonstrating the very essence of what so many of us do?

In Zen, the concept of "beginner's mind" is central.

Corpsing Faeries

by JustJimAZ on 08-12-2011 at 02:03 PM


I saw an article about some hoax ni England where someone corpsed a small skeleton and tried to pass it off as a Faerie.

Well, that made me think it would be a cool specimen for my lab. Some local haunters came over for a make and take, and saw it and loved it and said I should offer them. As I already had others in the works, I decided to give it a go.

I thought I'd share some of the end

Acrophobia

by JustJimAZ on 08-10-2011 at 12:58 PM
Acrophobia, as I'm sure you know, is the fear of heights.

Previously, I have written about a haunt done completely in the dark, capitalizing on nyctophobia. I was wondering about other common phobias. Who wants to build a "scare" around something 1 person in ten million have?. I know lots of people fear heights.

So, short of building your haunt 100 feet in the air, how do you
