Welcome to Haunting 101!
Hi! My name Tracy, I have been creating home haunts and custom props for 24 years now.
I've also taught classes at Southeast Community College Continuing Education from 2009 - 2015, teaching others how to make their own props, corpses and special effect make-up. The most exciting part of teaching was showing others how to create something and watching their creativity bring some of the most awesome things to life!
I currently build & operate with my boyfriend Mike our Home Haunt - Shaggy's Sinister Circus along with all of our websites and promotional items. I will also be opening in 2022 an online store filled with custom made props, masks and all kinds of great stuff!
Whenever I am able to get away, I love getting the opportunity to visit haunts across the country as well as attend national conventions and of course always meeting new friends!
Some new things are coming in 2022, so stay tuned to find out what's coming next.
My site contains many ideas and things I have learned from years ago and I am currently revamping the site as I am currently working on updates and new pages! Among some of the new things will be information about sculpting and molding with links for supplies for this. On Haunting 101 you will find ideas and information on how to design, make, build, use, and create most items without spending a arm and a leg, some items you may have at home already. I have also added pages and links so you can learn how to make more difficult & detailed props if you desire. Adding store bought items to my props (such as eyeballs, effect hair, UV paints, heads, hands, Ect.) and to my Haunt (quality skeletons, glow glue sticks, electronic motors & effect equipment, projections etc.) can make a heck of a difference especially if you are having difficulty making the items yourself. There are links to direct you to where you can buy high quality props, haunt accessories, & things you may need for construction of your own props. My intention is to help out others looking for information on Halloween haunting, decorating, and prop building. This site has a large volume of information and PICTURES!
Please feel free to send me an Email if you have any questions, comments or need some help!
Enjoy! *Happy Halloween and Happy Haunting!*
I would like to give a special THANKS to my Awesome Boyfriend Mike for all his hard work he puts into each haunt every year. To all of our Awesome and Dear Friends who also help with the build, set up/teardown and support of our haunt! To my friends on the internet, Haunters Hangout, Haunt Forum, Halloween Forum and the Howl2000 list! My haunt would not be what it is today without you! Thanks for the videos, how to's, all the ideas, information, all your hard work you share, thank you so much! Love you all!
