    Sorry... this thread was just calling to me for some reason. :) Not sure if you tried it yet, but Spirit Halloween has some options. I'm sure there are plenty others out there a Google search away... https://www.spirithalloween.com/product/kids-joker-costume-deluxe-batman/58910.uts?Extid=sf_froogle

    Wow... this is discouraging to read. :( I wish people would be inspired rather than get more lazy. That's crazy! Many people stop by to say they love the decorations, or alter their normal walking routine to pass by the house every day, but I wish some would get more into the spirit. UnOrthodOx - That's great that you've had some success inspiring others! One of the reason's I asked this was because I came across some videos about a neighborhood in Romeo, Michigan... Tillson St. Man I...

    Hey all. Just curious, have any of your neighbors started decorating ďbigĒ after you started, or after you moved in? Iím sure some of you are lucky enough to live on the same block as other haunters, but Iím curious if anyone here has inspired another nearby to start their own excessive Halloween decorating? It hasnít happened here. Iím just asking because I wish another home on the block would go all out and decorate big. It would be inspiring. The nearest house near here that decorates pretty...

    Thanks GoS. I tried all of those codes before posting here, but no luck. This was a last ditch effort. :) I appreciate the suggestion.

    I've seen a version with a lower pivot point like yours. I don't think it's an issue if you fix your shorter metal connector to the motor. If you don't allow it to swing around the screw so loosely and fix it tight, you will have greater swing, more than 10".

    Many thanks, J-Man! Great advice, and you helped a ton. I wasn't at all aware. Again... ignorant. :) If I'm going to build props, I really need to start studying this stuff.

    The Joker replied to a thread Other: Flying Crank Ghost in Halloween Props
    Thanks J-Man. Sorry I wasn't clear. First and foremost I was looking for battery powered LED lights for the eyes of the ghost and when searching for them, the eBay results come back with tens of thousands of listings, and most where Christmas string lights. I couldn't find what I was looking for, but I just came across some now and can use them for my ghost. Here's what I was struggling to find. To my second question though. I want to use a pair for a Creep to put in the yard. I'm...

    The Joker started a thread Other: Flying Crank Ghost in Halloween Props
    Hey all. I'm thinking of building a flying crank ghost, and potentially a cauldron creep. I need help finding battery powered LED lights for the ghost eyes. What would I search for on eBay or other website to narrow the search, or does anyone have another source. A simple eBay search brings up several thousands of listings, none of which are what I'm looking for. I'm also looking for a plug in version for the creep if I can find them. I'd rather not need to go out and turn on the eyes every...

    I posted a quick video to my instagram the other night (@vanoakscemetery) if you want to see. It's still using the monofilament fishing line, but even that does an alright job disappearing in the darkness. https://www.instagram.com/p/Bw8fLhvF-mN/?utm_source=ig_web_button_native_share

    Had an idea for a floating lantern prop but have no trees or structures to use to mount the mechanism. So after thinking about how to achieve the effect for a few months, here’s what I came up with. https://youtu.be/Ns3YbiBlRH0 I’ll be swapping out the monofilament fishing line with black braid fishing line, which is stronger and much harder to see in low lighting. Enjoy!

    Your haunt is so inspiring! I am also a scenic designer (as a hobby on Long Island) and it is so obvious that your attention to detail is what really completes your scene. Whenever I set up my haunt, I get the most satisfaction out of adding the foliage, the crows, the lighting... all of the things that make the haunt come alive!

    Beautiful work!!
