    victor-eyd replied to a thread Lighting: atmosfearfx 3dfx mode???? in Halloween Props
    Perhaps 3dfx mode is simply a still image of the witch but her face (and maybe some of her clothing) moves.Think the Madame Leota prop but a full figure of her. Instructions might be to cut out a silhouette initially and then playback a running loop of her saying all of incantations and stuff. Add other stuff like fog and what not and it becomes a pretty cool addition to the haunt. Victor

    What does the electric chair hat look like? If anyone wants something from At Home, PM me. I'd be glad to stop by and pick up whatever you want. I have a store about 3 miles from my house.

    Honestly there is a lot of tension in the atmosphere and while I agree about the media I do feel that there's something more to it. Not sure what yet but I have some ideas.

    Thank you for your magnanimous offer. I have never felt that anything here was "Evil". My Ex might have a different opinion though? "IT" would call her name in a certain part of the house. The last thing that happened to her , she had her hair yanked as she was waiting in the wine cellar . I talk about a lot of these occurrences during the tour of the house. Depending upon the customer's feelings or curiosity, I tell the haunted history straight forward, or with some attempted comedy.....

    May you and the group be blessed with adult members in your ghost hunting group. Being "Tall",old, does not necessarily an" adult" make. People have promised us that they would NOT do certain things here.. and then we catch them doing those things."Magic Circles", Oui-Ja boards, and swearing up a storm at thin air, trying to stir "Something" up. We live here, the ghost hunters drive away, go to their homes at the end of the night. Some have acted as if they will be doing us a huge...

    The biggest safety factor in a Haunt (In my opinion) is ... "No RUNNING!" Or even quicker than normal walking. We must use our over active imaginations and apply them to "What If?" Thinking. Seeing what could happen" if."..and then taking steps to make that "thing" Not happen, if at all possible. Part of this is and will always be communicating,and even repeating warnings and concerns to those we are trying to entertain and any helpers we may have. No Running! "You (them) don't have...

    It can be done. I've cut off the LED on many solar yard lights and soldered a length of wire to the pins to re-locate the LED. Then just solder the LED onto the other end of the wires. Works like a charm!

    DaveintheGrave replied to a thread Mechanical: Animated "Sweeping" Broom? in Halloween Props
    I guess it depends how heavy the broom would be. Maybe something like a reindeer motor attached to the middle of the broom handle? Then the broom could sweep one direction to a stop, then the motor would reverse and make the broom sweep the other direction---over and over again. I'm sure it can be done, just not sure exactly what sweeping effect you want.

A huge steel skull with a a hand large enough to be his hand is reaching out from the vines and weeds .

    Mod hat on: If you're making items specifically to sell, then that does classify you as a merchant on this forum. As such, this thread has been shifted to the "for sale by merchant" section. It would also be in your best interest to list some pricing and shipping costs so forum members can tell if they are in their price range. And also, merchants can post for sale listings once every 30 days in this section... there are other selling rules (no bumping or creating threads with the sole intent...

    Hey Otaku, where about's in Southern BC have you been. I live on the West Coast, in the Upper Fraser Valley in a small city called Chilliwack BC. I'm about a 15 minute drive from the Abbotsford/Sumas Border Crossing, little less if I forget to watch my speed,lol. And about a 1 hour drive East from Downtown Vancouver BC.
