  1. Lighting: Low Voltage LED ligths - recommendations?

    Halloween Props
    Thanks J-Man and others for the recommendations. I'm going to go with a combination this year, including some low voltage spots, and have just ordered several of the RGB floods through Amazon. They seem to be a consensus pick and a good value. Also will pick up some LED floods at either...
  2. Lighting: Low Voltage LED ligths - recommendations?

    Halloween Props
    Last minute? - yes. Have never been really satisfied with my lighting, which is incandescent colored floods and white spots, and have been thinking about going fully to LEDs, in particular, low voltage spots and floods. Really don't like all the electrical cords running all over the yard...

    Really, really nice job! You gotta love the vintage Universal Studios monsters.
  4. Prop Showcase: Drive in theater haunt 2014

    Halloween Props
    Snacks "Cost an arm and a leg?" .... it looks like they "ARE" an arm and a leg! Very clever and nicely done. Sure to be imitated (sincerest form of flattery). Just curious - what movies or movie quote snippets did you run?
  5. Static: New Graveyard Monument

    Halloween Props
    Great work. I think the scale is just right in relation to the size of the urn.
  6. Mechanical: Need help finding an angle!

    It would be 36 degrees.
  7. Halloween 2013 is behind us. What's your plans for 2014?

    General Halloween
    Maybe a bit early to even think about new props - my Abby-normal brain needs to settle in for a long winter's nap! One thing for sure, however, will be to better weatherize what I have. The rain and wind have done me in way too often.

    Thanks - some good ideas and some things I had not thought of. Got time to try them out if I hurry. Will post pics after it's all over - whew!!
  10. Static: Witch Shack - window treatment

    Halloween Props
    Need some ideas. Building a witch shack with some windows. What is the best method to lightly frost or opaque the windows? The effect is to allow light transmission and blurry images of what may be inside.
  11. Terra's Big Announcement

    General Halloween
    Let me add my best wishes. With your husband now having nothing to do, there's no telling what astounding props you will be able to create with his full time help. Really appreciate all the tutorials and advice - you've been an inspiration and I look forward to seeing what new creative things...

    General Halloween
    Trick or Treed!
  13. Note to self- what will you improve for 2013

    General Halloween
    Even though I had to cancel completely this year because of the horrible weather forecast and did not put anything out, I still found myself (once again) working furiously on one of those large, last minute projects right up until we cancelled. Lesson learned - do not start something you can't...
  14. Electronic/Software: 3 AXIS SKULL Rock Band Braintrust - Designers colaboration

    Halloween Props
    Absolutely awesome Sadler! What a great concept - a haunted high school dance. The guitar work was spot-on. Yes, lots of hard work and you can be proud of it, for sure. Thanks for sharing with us all. Wasn't in the cards for me this year, due to time constraints, but it is definitely on the...
  15. Static: Spirit Bloody Lantern makeover

    Halloween Props
    Nice job Rummy. I've seen the lantern before and always thought to myself, "Why did they have to splatter it with blood?" Yours is a 100% improvement.
