    StonebridgeCemetery started a thread Electronic/Software: Rotisserie Motors in Halloween Props
    Alright. I purchased a rotisserie motor in the hopes of copying the skeleton that BigAnt has on top of his column at Eerie Acres. Most rotisserie motors are supposed to reverse when they meet resistance, right? The salesman said this one reversed. My daughter destroyed the box so now I assume I can't return it. In the meantime, a family member bought me another bigger rotisserie motor that is "twin direction". Well it will reverse if I turn it off and back on, but not if it meets...

    Looks great already so I'd say, take a deep breath and throw in the graveyard :)

    Called them today and explained the situation. The guy said they could give me an even exchange with no receipt, but if I just wanted to return it I'd need one. I told him the exchange would be fine. Of course they have every color but amber so he said he'd hold the color of my choice for me until tomorrow. I took the defective one and removed the lens cover on it. Plugged it in again and it works fine! WTF. Put the lens cover back on and tightened it down but noticed if I tighten it too much...

    The brown is a great color for a tombstone. Your cracks are the best I've seen - I just can't quite get the knack for those, heh.

    Diabolik replied to a thread Mechanical: Filling out a PVC Body in Halloween Props
    There is no wrong way to do it. Many times I make a "hoop" for around the chest/waist and then I make another piece for the shoulders. I did not have a lot of hardware cloth left and that is mainly why I did this one like that. It is easier, but I think doing it in 2 pieces allows it to be shaped a bit more. If they are running shoes they might not be too bad to drill. Men's dress shoes are tough. As I said, tear out anything you can from inside them as it is less you need to drill through....

    Thanks, they are from Ghost Ride Productions. Called Ghoul Hands I believe. I had them make them for me with PVC inserted. They happen to match this particular head very well..

    You may want to explore the music genre called Epic Music. It's the songs used in movie trailers. They are heart-pounding and some can be just a bit scary enough for Halloween but not overly so. Here's a couple of examples:

    I think I have pretty much wrapped this guy up for now. I finished griming him up and dressing him tonight. Our weather here is supposed to be horrid Friday night, so I am sure my zombies will be taking a beating. I am doubting anyone will notice any little details that I might have missed.;)

    Terra, you have way more patience (and talent) than me. I never realized you made her whole body, but somehow I am not surprised. ;) She was probably a piece of cake after the horse and demon dog. :)

    I bought three of the amber spotlights this year. Used two of them tonight as we were doing a light test on our display. After less than two hours, one of them stopped working. The bulb became very dim and while there is a very faint light, it obviously is defective. So it's 4 days until Halloween. I don't have the receipt as it worked when I bought it. what are the chances of them replacing or refunding my money? Sad part is they don't have any more in stock. Supposed I'm hosed for the 25...

    Ugly Joe has a great point. To add to that - what brand of fake blood are you using? I used PermaBlood from Pale Night Productions and it was thick enough not to get soaked into the expanding foam.

    Wow, Diabolik! What great ideas to quickly (and lightly) bulk out a zombie. Hope you don't mind but I'd like to toss into this that you can go to Level: Bananas! by further manipulating hardware cloth. It really is a prop maker's go-to cloth. It's a supreme medium to fold, bend and pinch into exactly what you want. When making Terra I took many of the following ideas from LaurieBeast's, The Vampiress tutorial. A dress form is a helpful start to form the top of the torso. Here you can see...
