Hi! My name Tracy, I have been creating home haunts and custom props for 22 years now.
I have always loved the Halloween season, the pumpkins, the special effects and all the spooky fun since I was a kid.
In 2006 & 2007 I was a co-owner of a Haunted Attraction in Lincoln NE called Dark Visions Presents. There was 6 of us who came together and created this haunt. I was lucky to be able to work with this very talented and dedicated group of friends who not only Love Halloween but also love to have fun. Being able to be a part of that experience was hard work, educational and definitely a lot of fun!
In 2008 I started "Fear Crafters Haunt Club" Fear Crafters for the Lincoln Ne. area. I met so many new friends and people that loved Halloween, who wanted to learn how to make their own props and get together to just relax and have a good time. We had many Make N Takes, BBQ's, fundraisers for local charities and traveled to haunt conventions and other Halloween events as a group. So many great events and memories while helping each other create new and bigger props and haunts! Unfortunately in 2016 Fear Crafters came to an end.
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!
When ever 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 2021, so stay tuned to find out what's coming next.
My site contains many ideas and things I have learned from years ago as I am updating this site, I am also going to be adding new stuff as well. Newer things about sculpting, molding with links for supplies for this and many other new items. You will find here ideas and information on how to design, make, build, use, and create most 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!

I would like to give a special THANKS to my parents for all their hard work they put into each haunt every year. To all my friends and family who come to see my haunts and for the love, hard work, support and help! 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 DVD sets, all the ideas, information, all your hard work you display on your websites, thanks for sharing. Love you all!
