    Ooooooo I love these. I've converted a few over the years. Collecting another one tomorrow for this years new bits I'm running. They're unbelievably versatile bits of equipment, that you can pick up for next to money second hand.

    I have got a problem, I hope that once I come out of my lighting closet I will feel like a weight has been lifted from my shoulders lol Lighting, I love getting hold of any old lights that have that Halloween look to them. I think I got all these for around 5-10. The little boots were 2 and are going to turn into Witches boots. The clock will for a basis for a grandfather clock I'm going to build. That was also 5. I have snagged so much free stuff over the years for Halloween, so...

    Cheers Scarybella, we're off on our jollys tomorrow so done nothing since but I've got some Arduino books to read on the beach/terrace to get some ideas and how to's (the geek in me never switches off! :D). I know there's a ton of stuff out there particuarly the US with people making dedicated prop controllers (eg PicoBoo like you said), so good luck with whatever you go for!

    Hi all, thanks for the kind words everyone! Dandy Brit, I originally used cheap plastic servos at first but the head one was a bit jerky (probably due more to the weight) so I've swapped the neck one for a metal geared one and that is much smoother, I just used the cheap ones for the arm and eyes now. scarybella, don't give up! I gave our party a miss last year for the first time in some 13 years due to redecorating etc and just did a display outside, but boy did I have bad withdrawl...

    great Idea. I've not seen anything like that before, just the normal floating candles hanging off fishing line etc. They look great, nice work.

    Woooooah you guys and gals don't hang around getting the new UK thread I thought last year was going to be my last but at the last minute well the 24th I thought come on pull yourself together you'll only regret not setting something up after Halloween has passed. And to be fair looking back at some old photos of last year it doesn't look too rushed. I bought so many cheap bits for props and lighting speakers etc but I never got around to using any of them, so...
