    This is our first Halloween in the new house. I stayed with the same theme as the old one: The lighting really makes this. We keep it dark with orange lights, but for picture purposes, we turned the celling lights on.

    A little to fast. Use a double acting cylinder and put some flows on there to slow it down to your liking.

    Industen replied to a thread Pneumatic: What was your 1st Pneumatic prop? in Halloween Props
    First was trash can trauma but there are easier ones to make. I have around twenty pneumatic props now. Start with a coffin banger. Very easy. One cylinder, one solenoid, you can even hook it to a remote trigger and activate it manually without a prop controller. TCT is the same but you need a little bit more knowledge on hardware and such. After a while you can build more elaborate props.

    Thanks everyone for the kind words! That ticket booth was based off of Keith Corcoran. He is a member here and did an amazing carnival theme a couple years ago. His ticket booth tutorial is on make.com.

    Thank you so much! My husband does the carpentry for me, with the exception of the signs. I won't let anyone near those :) Most of the design work is from me. I am responsible for the overall vision, set details and a lot of the paint. I have some help on the paint though and my husband created the clown on the jack in the box lid. We have a good team developing over here.

    Hello..... hello.... Bob.... are you out there??? You dissapeared on me!

    Bob,

    Hope you are having a good new year. Are you working on any new projects yet? I’m getting ready to start a new big project. I’m going to start building wall panels. I’m fearful the project may be bigger than it may first seem, but I’ll give it a go.

    Anyway have a great 2012!

    Thanks for looking at my album. It almost feels like Halloween is not over when I get visitors like you. Your comments were greatly appreciated.

    30 TOTs is not bad. That is what I averaged for many years. Honestly I get so much fun out of building the props that as long as I get a few dozen Im happy, although I do get doubts if all the effort is worth it. The answer I always come back to is yes, because this hobby is awesome.

    A video walk though of my haunt would have been a good idea. Unfortunately she is already half torn down, maybe next year.

    I did not hit any after holiday sales. What were you able to get at Spirit? It sounds like a bunch of forum members were going after the zombie sewer tunnel displays. Id have to admit that Spirit did step it up a level with the indoor displays this year. I was impressed. Did you get any animatronics?

    Are you thinking of next year yet, or are you going to take a break for a while? Ive fallen behind on some of my home chores, plus the wife has a project or two for me, but I would like to begin one of my new ideas for next year. Im going to try and make wall panels. The plastic wall covering from Spirit looks pretty good, but Id like to make something that looks like real stone. I hope I can pull it off.

    Well sorry to chat your ear off, but it is always nice to hear from forum members.

    So how did the big day turn out for you? Did you have lots of visitors? The display looks great.

    Like your pics. I noticed that in 2010 you used mainly green ligting. Did yo use LEDs ? In the 2011 photos it looked like you may have changed the color scheme. I have tried various colors, but really like the way your green turned out on the tombstones/graveyard. Happy Halloween !!

    Thank you for the kind comments. The lighting is a lot of work. If I had to guess I probably run upwards of 50 or 60 independent LED lights.

    Looks like you have also been working hard this year. Are you on schedule?

    Great work! Your pics are very creepy! Great collection you have!
  10. Thanks! I followed the Skull and Bone technique. Here's the link.

    Only thing I did different was use a dark walnut varnish rather then the black spray paint suggested. I also sanded
    down the bucky and put a coat of the varnish on before the
    nylon and latex application. I then waited about a half hour
    and wiped it off leaving only the cracks and sockets dark and a hint of color on the bone
