    Not sure about the motor, but I have had success replacing those "rubber band" style belts with O-rings. I found some in the plumbing department at Lowes to replace the belt in my Donna the Dead. Worked great. They even have a size chart if you take the old one with you. :)

    He is turning out quite well. Great idea on using coveralls. Haven't tried that yet. Going to be building one for myself here shortly, might have to get to the Goodwill! Take a look at our zombie kits. I am certain you can build it. :) We've gotten a good amount of feedback on them and everyone has said building it was a piece of cake. ;) You'll be up and swaying in no time!

    If you are using on rubber, do use use anything petroleum based. We typically use silicone grease (plumbing variety) seem to work well on PVC, and rubber. Can buy at Lowes or Home Depot.

    You're welcome and thank you, your kit is on its way! One thing I forgot to mention was a base. We got those round ones pictured above from Home Depot. Great for prop bases and only about $5. Very stable for a little guy and easy to hide. :) http://t.homedepot.com/p/1-in-x-17-3-4-in-Edge-Glued-Rounds-680435/202017011/

    Hi, You can add 2 extra joints to any of our kits to create "ankles" and the figure will be able to squat all the way down to a kneel if needed. Totally understand the budget battle. If you place an order before 8/31, use checkout code get10 and that will take an additional 10% off your order.;) If you have any questions about our kits, feel free to drop us a line or give me a call and I'll be glad to help you out any way I can with your project.

    I really like the horns. To me it makes him look more like a winged "creature" than just a winged skeleton. :)

    Diabolik replied to a thread Atmosphere Effects: rubber cement cob webs in Halloween Props
    I used the tutorial shown earlier in this thread. I used one very small (like 1/16" hole). I am pretty sure you could easily do 2 holes. Those containers come in a 2 pack at WalMart so you'll have a spare. Mine did work great with both rubber cement and the web fluid. 2 quick tips, don't fill the containers all the way,no more than half. Keep the slinger tilted upward so you don't get any dripping fluid.

    I cannot. I am not sure if it is even listed on there or not. I am guessing the label was thermal printed. I just pulled it out and can barely read any of it. I have used the web fluid and rubber cement and they are very similar. I am guessing it is just rubber cement with some sort of flame retardent chemicals added. I used some of these in the rain and they seemed to hold up just fine. PIA to get off of some stuff. It is an 8-inch 6 bladed condenser fan. I bought them on Ebay....

    The solvent is just for cleanup I believe. The web fluid is already labeled that is is non-flammable. I have the web fluid and it works great In my home made slinger. I just wipe it all out when I am done. the solvent probably makes it easier to clean. I am guessing the solvent is just something common you can probably buy elsewhere.

    I've been sitting on this one for a while and I have finally decided to let it go. This is a modified Talking Thru Boris (new version). He is wired to a small control box with an input jack and a variable resistor that allows you to adjust the amount of his movement. This was done using a proven hack and it is put together properly. In the video, he is running off of a portable CD player (not included in this sale). The skeleton is just your run of the mill blow molded skellie about average...

    About the little witch, I love her, I put her sometimes sitting on my excersice bike in the basement in the dark, scared the hell out of my wife a few times. Horrible, I know, but funny at the same time (L).
