    Ah, now I see how those are done. Super impressive and that artistry of the dragon head is amazing as well. Hope you don't mind but I embedded the video for you. You use the filmstrip button in the posting box.

    i know i can't be the only one who thought of this concept. Making this cheesy looking flying ghost into a creepy looking ghoul. I was thinking about purchasing one and completely redoing its features or taking their ghost off the motor and attaching my own. has anyone done this or know how this can easily be accomplished? thanks!

    What an awesome thread and perfect timing. Just had gone through my parents pictures last week and found a picture of a tiny Terra: My mom made this costume. The broom is sewn on the robe and just had to pretend to hold it ;)

    Terra replied to a thread Static: Help with headstones? in Halloween Props
    I use the PL300 foam board adhesive for the PVC channels but Glidden Gripper (both sides) for the flat surface of the foam board itself. You see - if there is air then the foam board adhesive would work (great for the PVC channels) but when I used to carve into the flatter sides of the board I would discover that it never dried and gunked up my carving tools. That's why I switched the Glidden Gripper for that area. I just tried sanding the two sides of the board before gluing with Glidden...

    Reapee - your tombstone build scared the hell out of me today. Tried a completely new technique and needed a damn drink afterwards to calm the nerves but thinking it's gonna be great. You are worth it :)

    Thanks all. Love that workshop too. When we told my friends that I was making one of the bedrooms a workshop they were like, "Whaaaa?" Hey, Reapee - did a lot of productive work on your stone so far. Here's a hint for you - your theme for the stone is something I never would have come up with on my own without your 'likes' list ;) Exotic...

    All the walls are constructed (4' x 7') and put in place. Grout lines added to each 1/2" foam panel. 3 of the 10 electronic torch sconces have been wired into the panels. These aren't the most recent pictures but here are a couple more: This is the torch I am using. It was the most realistic I could find. It is 110volt with an on/off switch. There is a fan in the base which blows several pieces of thin white silk upwards. Two small orange/red bulbs illuminate the silk from both...

    The pipe that Fright Prop uses is actually a metal pipe like the kind you get at Home Depot.

    Terra replied to a thread Pneumatic: Air Whip Help ... in Halloween Props
    It's 4 feet long and the air pressure depends on how vigorous you want them to wiggle. I had mine dialed pretty low so they didn't beat you to death and didn't over-tax my air compressor because I had 4-6 other props running off my 20 gal compressor (poor thing). I can't exactly remember the psi but it was probably around 30-60. Looking at Fright Props looks like they may have gone to softer tubing but I'd even go further and try surgical rubber tubing perhaps:...

    Terra replied to a thread Pneumatic: Air Whip Help ... in Halloween Props
    Air whips are notorious air hogs so it's important to have just as many air whips in the unit that you need. How many or what use are you thinking for it? Here's the one I bought from Fright Props years ago: If it is going to hit the legs of the ToTs think of the little ballerinas that go through and use soft rubber whips instead of these plastic ones.

    Hey, sorry it took so long to reply. Yeah, I actually have a short video of my 1st test of the fog chiller. At the time I only had about 15 lbs. of ice in the cooler. I also had to duct tape the opening to keep all the fog from leaking out. It worked out really well on the big night with 20 lbs. of ice and lasted the whole night. I will be using it every Halloween.

    Hi Attain, Thanks for the friends request. I accepted. Looking forward to working out some prop ideas with ya. From a below post it looks like you are located at the opposite end of the city than I am but still nice to talk to someone on the forum that is "local".

    My software can be motion activated with an Insteon Motion Sensor. In the "Triggered" mode, LSM only runs the show when it is activated by another Insteon device, such as a motion sensor. If you just want to add specific audio to a prop, I've heard that the ELK-124 module (actually made for a security system) is a good way to do it. It is relay-activated, so you could hook up a motion sensor to it and it will play the recorded audio. I haven't used them yet, though.
