Halloween Pinboard

Need a cheap and simple idea to decorate your home for halloween? I just swapped all photos on my pinboard with horror related ones. I just got them from Google Image Search and printed it in a photo shop. If you like, you could also have a look at my other halloween projects (see my profile). ;-) Spooky Halloween! Mischka

Annoying Halloween Newsletters

Hi! Here in my country we do not mind about the halloween, so I think this kind of e-mail is a little boring (at least to people in other countries that don't celebrate the halloween). I'm really getting annoyed with these "halloween newsletters" every day at my inbox. I already searched how to unsubscribe from this especific newsletter but unfortunately without sucess. Thank you!

Cannot enter my instructible for the Halloween Decoration Contest

I am not seeing the Halloween Contest for decorations when I access my current instructible Emalene. The only contest that displays is the Halloween Photo Contest which is not applicable to my instructible. Even if I edit and choose contest to enter, only the Halloween Photo is available.

A little confused about the Halloween Contest

I was reading the Halloween Contest rules and it said that instructables posted before the contest start dates are not eligible but there are a ton of entries that were posted a few months ago. So I was wondering did the rules change or what?

Halloween Contests for 2012!

I don't know if this is the right forum section to post it on, and if it ain't, then please feel free to move it to the right forum section! But I do have a quick question! I've already seen on the Halloween Contests that a single user can submit multiple entrys (more than 1 entry per user), but now the thing is if an entry is of a costume one wore for Halloween a few years back, can they still enter it into the Halloween Easy or Epic Costume Contest for the year 2012?

Halloween is coming soon

I've just released a site update that gets us ready to reveal a whole Halloween area very soon.  Halloween is pretty much THE Instructables holiday and this year we're doing something special, in advance.  Watch for that shortly! There are also a number of bugfixes: fixed subscribing fixed a problem with inconsistent stats figures adjusted some of the email templates several admin-only fixes (they were really bugging me for these) Probably some other stuff that didn't make it on to my list, that you all will notice shortly and remind me of :)

Happy Hallowe'en!

Hallowe'en has started in the UK, and, as the night progresses, the trick-or-treaters are getting older and and uglier - around dusk, we get the fairies and wizards who need their parents to reach the doorbell, as it gets later, we get the small gangs of friends, later it will be the teens who are pretending they are trick-or-treating ironically, but really they like the candy just as much... A new twist this year - our candy has small sticky rubber rats and spiders mixed in, or you might get a plastic skull-ring around the stick of a lollypop. As the darkness reaches your part of the globe, tell us; what's the best or weirdest costume you've had to your door this year?  Got to go, there's the doorbell again!

A hot box full of Satan!!!

I'm already preparing for Halloween. One of the props I would like to build is a box to hold "Satan." I'm not yet sure what I want it to look like (rock? metal?)... but I do know that I want it to be warm to the touch. Not HOT... nothing that would actually harm anyone... but obviously - and devilishly - warm. My first best thought is to take something like an old-school metal lunchbox, create false walls on the top and bottom, and then put SOMETHING in the in-between spot. But what? Chemical hand warmers? Something battery-operated. Your ideas are welcomed. And if a little bit of smoke could come out, all the better. Please shout if you need any clarification!!! Thanks!!!

From My Brother: Halloween Advice

It's getting close to Halloween, so very strange things are about to happen, therefore please use these helpful hints this and every year. 1. When it appears that you have killed the monster, NEVER check to see if it's really dead. 2. Never read a book of demon summoning aloud, even as a joke. 3. Do not search the basement, especially if the power has gone out. 4. If your children speak to you in Latin or any other language which they should not know, shoot them immediately. It will save you a lot of grief in the long run. However, it will probably take several rounds to kill them, so be prepared. This also applies to kids who speak with somebody else's voice. 5. When you have the benefit of numbers, NEVER pair off and go alone. 6. As a general rule, don't solve puzzles that open portals to Hell. 7. Never stand in, on, or above a grave, tomb, or crypt. This would apply to any other house of the dead as well. 8. If you're searching for something which caused a loud noise and find out that it's just the cat, GET OUT! 9. If appliances start operating by themselves, do not check for short circuits; just get out. 10. Do not take ANYTHING from the dead. 11. If you find a town which looks deserted, there's probably a good reason for it. Don't stop and look around. 12. Don't fool with recombinant DNA technology unless you're sure you know what you're doing. 13. If you're running from the monster, expect to trip or fall down at least twice, more if you are female. Also note that, despite the fact that you are running and the monster is merely shambling along, it's still moving fast enough to catch up with you. 14. If your companions suddenly begin to exhibit uncharacteristic behavior such as hissing, fascination for blood, glowing eyes, increasing hairiness, and so on, kill them immediately. 15. Stay away from certain geographical locations, some of which are listed here: Amityville, Elm Street, Transylvania, anywhere in Texas where chainsaws are sold, the Bermuda Triangle, or any small town in Maine. 16. If your car runs out of gas at night on a lonely road, do not go to the nearby deserted-looking house to phone for help. If you think that it is strange you ran out of gas because you thought you had most of a tank, shoot yourself instead. You are going to die anyway, and most likely be eaten. 17. Beware of strangers bearing tools. For example: chainsaws, staple guns, hedge trimmers, electric carving knives, combines, lawn mowers, butane torches, soldering irons, band saws, or any devices made from deceased companions. 18. If you find that your house is built upon a cemetery, now is the time to move in with the in-laws. This also applies to houses that had previous inhabitants who went mad or committed suicide or died in some horrible fashion, or had inhabitants who performed satanic practices. 19. Dress appropriately. When investigating a noise downstairs in an old house, women should not wear a flimsy negligee. And carry a flashlight, not a candle. 20. Do not mention the names of demons around open flames, as these can flare suddenly. Be especially careful of fireplaces in this regard. 21. Do not go looking for witches in the Maryland countryside. 22. Machine-guns can't kill EVERYTHING. 23. If you happen to come upon a giant web or nest, DO NOT look for what made it. 24. If you find that your puppet is not how you left it the night before, find the axe. If you own a fireplace, that sometimes works better. 25. Don't wear extremely loose clothing, as it will catch on something as you are running away. 26. Do not chase after the big monster trying to camcord it, you WILL die. 27. Do not pet a foaming dog. 28. BELIEVE ALL URBAN LEGENDS. 29. If you have to pair up, do not go with the snobby rich guy, he will be one of the first to die. 30. If you find a secret doorway, don't go exploring it, chances are something happened in there. 31. Not all clowns are happy. 32. If the housekeeper never smiles and/or seems to hate you, do them and yourself a favor and leave. 33. Just because you come in peace doesn't mean they do. 34. Learn to scream AND run, it will save your life. 35. Never give hitch-hikers a ride. 36. If the crazy old man says leave, take his advice; what do you think made him crazy? 37. Unless your neighbor is a grave keeper or a gardener, carrying a shovel is not a good sign. HAVE A HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!!!
