Hey, Hi, and Hello there!
Hi guys! I've been lurking in the shadows of this forum for a while now and decided it's high time I became an active member! :)
My first prosthetic was at age 9, my first haunt was 16 (for charity of course), and my sister's birthday is Nov, 1st because my mother refused to miss Halloween with me even at age 3. I've worked on the design of close to a dozen haunts over the last 8 years, have my own Makeup FX company, and co-own a Haunt Design company that specializes in masks, costumes, props, puppets, foam fabrication, ground plan design, and even whole-haunt design. We attended Transworld as a vendor for the first time this year, had a blast, and look forward to the many awesome trade shows to come!
I have a degree in Technical Theater, hold Pro cards from Makeup Artist Magazine and a number of cosmetics companies; have trained with the Wolfe Brothers, Alex Hansen, and Temptu Pro (among others); and try to learn something new from every project I undertake.
Glad to be in the mix!
Thanks guys & ghouls :D
Looking for backers for my project to build a haunted house
All my life I have loved horror movies and haunted houses ,and also Halloween. I have always enjoyed going to haunted houses and getting dressed up for Halloween when I was a kid. I'm a big believer in having a hobby that you love doing. For the longest time I have wanted to put together a a haunted house for everyone in my community. Im trying to find people that would be willing to back my project on opening up Flour Bluffs first haunted house for the community. The link is at the bottum of the page so you can look at the project. I also plan on having canned food drives and raising money for the local laguna little league baseball with some of the money that I raise at the haunted house.I have been in contact with a owner of a haunted house that is looking into selling his two haunted house and all his props. I have the location for the haunted house I just need the supplies for run the haunted house. I plan on opening the haunted house to the community on October 18th,19th, 20th,25th,26th,27th,28th,29th,30th,31th, and the 1st of November. We will be open from 7pm to 12pm every night. If you have any questions feel free to contact me and I will be willing to answer anything you need to know.

Michigan Farm Gal gong on 5 years of Haunted Trail in Michigan near Traverse City!
Well I have been a member of this board for years but lurk mostly. My family have been haunting in one form or another for 25+ years so we have fun. I thought I would introduce myself and creep less on this board and help where I can. My family and I do a theatrical based outdoor trail walk and will be adding an indoor barn haunt this year for our 5th anniversary. We do this as a fundraiser but don't think that we take our haunt that way. We train our volunteers to be as professional and haunt savvy as we can. We have people as young as 8th graders that haunt our woods and the guests leave going "those were 8th graders?" We do not do GORE but we rock on SERF...Spooky Enchanting Really-good FEAR.
I own an organic veggie farm but truth be told-haunting is where my heart is at. I plan on shifting the farm to a fall mecca of fall fun and spooktacular events:-)
People leave the Ghost Farm of Kingsley-really great reviews and on our 5th anniversary we are ready to take a good leap forward. If you want check us out look at our facebook.com/GhostFarm page.
I hope this information helps and HI!
