    I love the movement - the jaw and the head turning is really great! I didn't notice the actual coffin creeping open until a second view tho! :D Great looking setup - would love to see it with your other skelly like you're planning and all lit up. :cool:

    VIDEO: https://youtu.be/fTJSfBQC-WI This a project I actually completed for Halloween 2017, but have been lax in finding the time to take some decent pics and shoot a video of it in action. I always loved the Grave-Digging Skeleton, but always wondered if I could re-engineer it in a new way and with a different motor. I figured that since the arms of the skeleton are already attached to the handle of the shovel, why not figure out some way to actually make the arms move the shovel back...

    If you are wanting to float the candelabra like an FCG, it will work, just I would recommend using a very slow motor (3 or 4 RPM) for a subtle floating movement. And the crank for your motor will be very short, since the candelabra is not that wide. I would just experiment by mounting your motor and pulleys on the bottom of a flat board. Then try a short crank length and use that as a reference to judge what changes you need from there. In my mind, your idea would look pretty cool. Kind of...

    That is really disappointing to hear. They had the ability to reach out to you and make things right ,and instead they remove the post completely. Have you contacted them directly over the issue with the mask and also asked about why your review on their site was removed? I would be interested to see what they say for both inquiries. I am going to move this thread into our "reviews" section, but I do hope others post if they have experience with this company - good or bad - is always...

    I've built many versions of an Animated Ouija board over the last ten years or so and they are not really that hard to build. Here's a link to a tutorial I made many years ago on how to build one. https://www.halloweenforum.com/tutorials-and-step-by-step/107554-animated-ouija-board-vent-motor-part-1-a.html I used to sell these boards on E-bay, so I'm guessing between all those I sold and the ones I made for friends I have probably built 50 to 60 of them. Still have a few...

    He's talking about these: https://www.goldmine-elec-products.com/prodinfo.asp?number=G21146 I used one for a prop once, but I manually triggered it off and on with a remote control. Not the easiest way to do it, I'm sure.

    The cotton candy room could be a "squeeze room" - get batting (used to make quilts) from a fabric store, make a basic shape (I'd suggest using a oval/egg shape out of cardboard and then skin them with the batting) add pool noodles for the handles, spraypaint pink, then hang up from the ceiling. Could even embed a few skulls or even a spare skelly arm hanging out. Would look like cotton candy coocoons similar to Killer Klowns From Outer Space. Best to stagger them down a narrow corridor... ...

    I've been to the Mad Monster Party in Charlotte, NC a few times. A lot of fun, but I've been out of town the last couple of times it came. I saw the advertisement for this years, and it looked like they've REALLY cut down on the number of celebrities attending. Kind of a shame. But, have a good time if you go!

    I love ahs I did hear evan is sitting out of this one. My fav is the first season followed by coven and asylum my least favorite was freak show and hotel. I did love the first part of roanoke but the second half sucked. cult I thought was done very well it hit all of the sore subjects and really put in perspective of what people of capable of when push comes to shove. I loved the last season. And ryan murphy is suppose to be in with netflix to do a witchy type series on there.

I don't know how to edit this so my ph.# doesn't show. So, if anyone out there crank calls me, I'll hex ya!

My daughter and I worked on this last minute, and it's not bad. A little short, and the sound needs to be turned way up, but it'll do fine.
