So proud of our Wraith House crew! After our third day of haunt video filming ended, all the girls participated in a video shoot by filmmaker Linda Palmer-Cardone for a potential Halloween/Haunt documentary. All these ladies carry themselves with such energy and were so excited to share their stories with Linda and her husband Mark. Thanks again Linda and Mark - we look forward to seeing you again for the build and when Wraith House goes live this October!

Our Kreepy Kernel Krunch made the First Fifty poster from Goodstuff's Kettle Corn Emporium!!

You asked for it and here it is.
The #KettleCornCrew Poster/Prints are available for PRE-ORDER.

The poster features the 1st 50 1/2 members to join the Kettle Corn Crew and have their very own Candied Kettle Corn custom flavor made. (yes 50 1/2. The design changed a little from it's initial concept. I had jumped the gun the first time around and accidently skipped over Auntie Distortion(#49). I felt it wouldn't be right to add her back to the mix without including little P***y.)

This will be a limited edition print. Size is 16"x20". Total number of prints will be determined by PRE-ORDER sales. These prints will be hand numbered and shipped out in the order they are received starting with print #3 of __. (Print #1 will be reserved for a promotional giveaway and #2 will be hung in our shop.)

The price is $20 each. Shipping and handling is included in the price. Prints will be shipped in a protective cardboard tube. Frame NOT included. Pre-orders will run for one week until Thursdy 11:59pm est 07/22/21. After that date the final limited edition number will be announced.

RESERVE yours HERE

Beginning the difficult and most time consuming phase - stitching. The leather pauldrons, which were the most expensive part of this, will take the longest to stitch into the shoulders of the trench. The hoses and mic cord get stitched into the front pack and upper back of the trench where the battle belt will attach. The hoses and mic cord are attached with zip ties, but I’ll stitch canvas straps over them for a better hold. While I wait for delivery of the leather stitching kit, I’m going to start on the LED panel that will attach to the front of the MOLLE pack. All in so far, I’ve spent $165, including $17 for the trench coat from EBay. The UV green and dark green blood are Rip City FX ‘s Toxic Sauce and Diseased. They dry with a wet look. I doused the trench in 9-16 Productions Fear Finish prior to adding the stage blood. The rust effects is also from 9-16, and the helmet and mask turned out fantastic. I’m using it to rust hand grenades that will attach to the fron and rear side on the battle belt.

So much happening this weekend. Wraith House’s own special kettle corn blend arrived today and it is so good, nobody wants anything else! Thanks again to Goodstuff's Kettle Corn Emporium for the excellent artwork and even better white and dark chocolate over caramel flavorings. Just outstanding! We also will soon be making a big announcement about this year’s haunt advert video, as one of our favorite and the most theatrical Metalcore bands in existence has authorized Wraith House to use their latest hit in the soundtrack. Stay tooned!!!

Some pics of the Houston trip and Wraith House’s visit to Purgatory Scream Park for some off-season note comparisons with the Masters themselves, Ryan Glasgow, ShaneandCaroline Glasgow, and the team at 9-16 Productions. In awe of these professionals, who started out nearly two decades ago as home haunters, just like us. Their design, both internal and external to the building, demonstrates why Purgatory dominates throughout the greater Houston metro area, and in our opinion, the State of Texas. Tito and I have much to learn and couldn’t have better and more creative friends than Ryan and Shane to teach us. We’ll be heading back soon to swap some enthusiastic haunt-building labor for the insights.

So, despite the fact that I look like I’ve just seen a man with a superior beard, here’s a shot of The Wraith’s visit with the 9-16 Productions guys ShaneandCaroline Glasgow, Ryan Glasgow, Kevin, Joseph, and John from Wraith House, at our meet up at 11 Below Brewing Company, where we FaceTimed with Rainbow Twitch and had a big ol’ time. We are family. No other way to say it - these guys truly are my brothers from another mother (except John - we share the same mother, although you can only see his shoulder, arm and sliver of his head in this shot.). Before I return to OC tomorrow, we’ll be at Purgatory Scream Park, continuing our quest to scare the ever-loving sh*t out of you. #haunting

Some pics from the Wraith’s visit to Fear Factory SLC and the behind the scenes tour presented by GM and HAA prez Spencer Terry, and the wizard himself, Talus Jarvis, creator of all things functional and awesome. Meghan and I had a blast, learned a lot, and thoroughly enjoyed post-tour adult beverages and dinner with Spencer and Talus at Wasatch Brewery. No wonder Fear Factory SLC is such an incredible attraction. The amount of work and TLC they put into the haunt is staggering. We’re humbled - not only by what we saw and experienced, but by the friendships we’ve made with Spencer, Talus, Rob, Keith, Scix the master trainer, and their amazing crew. Cheers!

Ok, so panels part 3. Decided to make some that had exposed lath since ultimately these will be used in a Victorian era dining room scene. Carved the 1.5 inch R-Tech board with an exacto to get the crumbled/stripped plaster openings. The lath is one-inch PVC for door frame finish work. Cut it with tin snips. As they don’t fit perfectly without a lot of serious cutting, I used foam putty from Woodland Scenics to blend each piece into the “wall”. I’ve been using this new cement from Loctite (power grab ultimate) that is great for bonding plastic and foam. Common ABS blow molded 4’ x 8’ panels are about $100 unpainted, and about $225 painted. The cost of this panel is $16 for the 4’x8’ sheet $7 for the pink board for wainscoting, $7 wal mart latex paint, each piece of PVC was $3.78. Add in the cement, and each panel averages less than $30. Plus they are strong, light and easy to move. You’ll see these in our vid coming in July as well as this year’s course for Wraith House.

So, final post on panels this weekend with one that will ultimately be in a boiler room. These are 1.5” R-Tech insulation backer-boards. Two to three coats of Walmart white latex paint. Glued a 2’x2’ pink foam board on the lower half. For this project I used 9-16 Productions Rust FX mixed with Walmart gray latex. Stippled it on and let it dry completely before I hit it with the activator. It was an experiment (the recommendation is to apply activator while the paint is still tacky), and we loved the way it turned out. Used an exacto to cut around the 45 pipe and end cap. After carving the holes about an inch deep, I used wood glue around the sides and underneath of the holes, then sprinkled the Rust FX metal dust in the glue. While it was wet, I hit it with the activator and raised the board so the excess would run toward the foot of the board. Then dripped Rip City FX Haunt Sauce beneath the 45 as a blood spiller. Also used @9-16 Productions Fear Finish stains (ni****ne, grime, mildew and toxin). Turned out incredible. Only 12 more to go....

Panels, panels, panels.... Experimenting with this one. Used 9-16 Productions Rust FX in the gray and let the paint mix dry completely. Sprayed the activator, and it’s giving an awesome effect. Will post the final product tomorrow.
