    Scary Papa started a thread Electronic/Software: Hitch Hiking Ghosts loop in Halloween Props
    I'm not sure this is the best place to put this thread but since there is no separate place for video projections I have put it here. I ran across these short videos of the Haunted Mansion hitch hiking ghosts. I am going to download one use serif movie maker to make a long loop to project in our haunted forest. Not quite sure which one I will use but either one should work well. I just thought other haunters might like to try this too.

    I like using the motors I get from E-bay because they come in various different RPMs. I use a 10 RPM on my spider. I do use a deer motor in a similar mechanism to raise and lower a ghost from a tree limb.

    Grave Grabbers- I'm sorry, I didn't mean to make you think I hold any ill feelings towards you. I'm always happy when another haunter is inspired by something I built, credit or no credit. Who knows, maybe someone else came up with the same idea as me and they just happen to look similar. No accusations. To tell the truth, I'm kind of surprised no one came up with it before I did. :) We are all here to inspire and support each other and I didn't mean for this to turn into a shouting match...

    I'm not sure who the figure is, but the bust itself looks similar to a Medusa bust I bought at Target about 6 or 7 years ago.

    It's just blue foam board, which is super light, but did cause our door to creak, which was fine with me lol. I attached it with 3M fastener (AKA super velcro) and just peeled the tabs off the door after Halloween. Got lucky and didn't damage the paint lol. Here are the details on that project... https://www.facebook.com/pg/yardhaunt/photos/?tab=album&album_id=323095241379073

    The thought has occurred to me that this could also be used as a means of just hiding the motor and using a much longer string having the spider moving somewhere else. Hmmmmmm...

    Man Who Shot Liberty Valance Jimmy Stewart, John Wayne, Lee Marvin, all powerhouses in an oldie but goodie directed by John Huston. Simple revenge plot, Liberty Valance being the bad guy played by Lee Marvin (of course) almost kills Stewart, Stewart wants revenge but there's much deeper things going on than just revenge.

    This is what I struggle with as well, for lack of a better way to put it. We've been doing a haunt for over 20 years and we've developed a loyal following. We now have older teens and young adults who come by and tell us they've been coming to our house since they were young. Parents tell us how much they like coming each year and how they appreciate what we do to give kids a fun Halloween. I think of the void we'd leave if we just stopped doing it so hopefully we can scale back gradually and...

    We welcomed a new member to our family. This is Toby. He's a Seal Lynx Mitted Ragdoll. He's 4 1/2 years old. His previous owners surrendered him to a shelter and I was lucky enough to find his page, I think on the day it went up! Now if we can get our 12 year old Seal Mitted Ragdoll to accept him. Still miss my Bengal Gino. :'(

    Hi, Hilda! I would love to submit a couple of your fabulous yard display photos for this upcoming article, but I would not do so without your permission. I will take no offense if you prefer not to share, but your yard is so great. Let me know what you think!

    Wow! Just like old times. I thought I'd lost that skill.

    Thanks for letting me know.

    Congratulations on the limb removal. I was worried you were gonna be stumped. We've had so many in-laws visiting I'm thinking of putting my family tree through the wood chipper. I'll be here all week.

    Looks like we CAN just scrap the stupid paint off the mirror. Just gotta figure out what nasty little tool is safest for the glass. (My keys scratch everything else up, figured it might work on the paint.)

    I am shocked - SHOCKED I tell ya. You mean there's just a mere mortal behind the curtain?

    We initially wondered about the mirror but we saw another one there which had a scratch through the paint and thought...How hard could it be? We'll mess around.

    It's not so much the organ part. Just looking for some kind of material that would be flexible enough to bend around a corner while strong enough to hold it's shape. We could buy rolls of veneer but it's not super cheap and I don' t know how well it would hold up without a backing. But I appreciate the response. Hope all is going well.

    Hey you! Hope setup is going well.

    I got two questions for the expert.
    1) We bought a mirror from Micheals that had a skull screened on the front of it - we want to take that off. Seems like a real mirror (it's heavy). Would the stuff you recommend for removing paint off blowmolds work? We don't want to damage the glass (I think the frame is a resin.)
    2) Working on the organ...we're modelling it very loosely on the Haunted Mansion version. The wood curves in the area where the keyboard is. Any thoughts on what we could user there? You just seem to know stuff.

    No worries if you're too busy with setup to reply. We'll figure something out.

    Hey,
    Those bats are super easy to make
    All I did was make a paper bat pattern and transfer the pattern to a light weight piece of black material, cut it out, then I just pinned it to the existing hummingbird body. Painted the motor and ground stake black, and BAM, done
    Oh, I painted the hummingbird black too
    Thanks for your nice comments!

    For some reason, when I hit reply to PrintersDevil, it says it included it, but in my post it's not showing up. I tried editing the post, but it won't post it. I'll try again tomorrow and see if it works.
