    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...

    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...

    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'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.

    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!
