    I've used Monster Mud to help change up the texture of plywood: A link to that tutorial: http://www.halloweenforum.com/blogs/terra/892-painting-faux-metal-tutorial.html Also have made some sturdy metal-like items using cardboard:

    Glad you like the Lazy Susan idea. On the head one I had installed a long, thick screw in the center of it and her head is on it like a spike. Later on I needed a base for a horse's head that had PVC for a skeleton and so that's why you also see the two PVC bases. Those easily screw on or off. For the full sized one there is a metal pipe threaded base and the dummy has a metal pipe as a spine. So, she just threads on or off. Hopefully you see that in this picture of the two bases in storage:

    Well, I dunno if Fright Props would not admit they had a problem. I find they are really helpful in trouble-shooting. Couple of years ago I had a faulty regulator - they sent me another one and that one was faulty. After we talked they realized they had gotten a whole batch of faulty regulators and got me a working one from a different batch quickly. They were great through that whole situation.

    Great idea for a thread - that umbrella frame stand is brilliant and the PVC painting one as well. Here's my two: There is a Lazy Susan on that head stand which allows me to turn the head as needed. You can also make them bigger to hold an entire prop dummy:

    Nice find. I need to hit our Goodwill this week to look for pants and shoes for a zombie kit we are finishing. I never find anything cool there. The last time I went I only ended up with a stained tie and a pair of pants with a comb in the back pocket. THAT is scary! They looked great on our zombie though! ;)

    Going with zombies this year, after a two year break from them. The genre is still solid and lends itself to some good scares for our haunt. May change direction for the next few years but for 2014, it's all about the undead!

    Spirit is the SOLE sponsor of the board. There are no others, even though other vendors have attempted to become sponsors, spirit seems to have the say in this. When a prop breaks or malfunctions after 2-3 hours use or even after one season of running for a few hours on Halloween night, it's poorly made. This is not uncommon for these props. Regardless of how many TOT's you get or whether it is an indoor party haunt or a Halloween night, if the thing won't work and they won't make it right,...

    When you buy a spirit "animatronic" and it's made by a company called "Tekky Toys", that's what you're getting; a toy. They are nothing more than cheaply made toys with plastic gears and small underpowered motors that simply are not made to last or withstand a lot of use. Right now in our spirit store at least half of the display animatronics are not functioning, and many haven't worked right since the store opened around Labor Day, and please don't say it's because they run all day every day...
