  1. Talk to me of coffins

    Halloween Props
    I’ve always wanted to build one using these plans. I am a big fan of the fence pickets. I have built several other props using them with great success. I say go for it! https://www.scarefx.com/project_coffin_2.html
  2. My latest zombie...

    Halloween Props
    Looks like a Closed Casket Studios head? Dave makes some great stuff. Zombie turned out awesome!
  3. Convert Stuffed dummy to Posable

    Halloween Props
    Make a frame out of standard PVC pipe and fittings. I’d suggest using 1 inch schedule 40 pipe. If you want adjustable joints, check out our site.
  4. Glass lab ware at Michaels

    Halloween Props
    I did not see this anywhere in the Michaels 2019 thread so I thought I’d post it here for anyone looking for some last minute props for their lab. I was really impressed by the selection they had and it is all already 50% off. Everything is glass including the syringes. I would have loved to...
  5. 2 Deer motor props...AKA long time, no prop making!

    Halloween Props
    This turned out great. You did a fantastic job hiding the mechanism.
  6. Prop building Fastener Tool aid

    Halloween Props
    Bolt Depot is awesome. I use them quite frequently for small quantity stuff or if I am in a pinch. They always ship quickly and they sell good quality items.(y)
  7. Mechanical: Wiper Motor Arm Attachment Help

    Halloween Props
    We use Fright Props motors in all of our kits. Their motors use an 8mm x 1.25 nut. Monster Guts motors were always smaller. If nothing has changed their motors use a 6mm x 1.0 nut. You are definitely looking for something metric. Bolt depot has metric couplers and metric all thread...
  8. Animated Prop Turner Mechanism

    For Sale/Trade By Individuals
    Hi all, I have one of these available. It is our Compact Prop Turner Mechanism. When this one was bent, the plate was oriented wrong and now the bolt pattern for the wiper motor is backwards (for our needs). I believe that this is perfect for a Monster Guts wiper motor. It can easily be drilled...
  9. Filling out the chest under clothing of a pvc armature body-prop

    Halloween Props
    The tot sized forms do not have a lot of definition and with a little trimming you can attach 2 of them back to back to make a complete torso.
  10. 2019 Midwest Haunters Convention

    Midwest Haunters Convention
    We visited the show 2 years before we ever went as a vendor. Yes, enjoy the show. That is the one thing that is tough about having a booth, there is very little time to shop! :eek:
  11. 2019 Midwest Haunters Convention

    Midwest Haunters Convention
    If you ever decide to try the show scene, MHC is a great place to start. I think you could do well there. It is on the floorplan map. There is a large section in the rear of the show marked Hardcore Hearse Club. They have a booth too so I am assuming the larger area will be to display some...
  12. Prop Showcase: Winged animated Reaper

    Halloween Props
    Very nice. The body movement was also a wiper motor?
  13. 2019 Midwest Haunters Convention

    Midwest Haunters Convention
    It is about twice the distance for us but we’ll be there. MHC is a great show. I am looking forward to it. I am hopeful there will be a good turnout. This is the first year we are doing a double booth. :)
  14. 2019 Midwest Haunters Convention

    Midwest Haunters Convention
    My understanding is that it had to do with them not being able to retain the dates and location within the convention center that they wanted. I hope that many are still able to make the trip to IL. :)
  15. Spider Hill's Leering Skeleton Plans!

    Tutorials and Step-By-Step
    Hi All, We get a lot of questions about building this prop so the last time we built one I made sure to document everything so I could make a complete set of plans to share. Feel free to download the file from our site. :) If you have any questions please feel free to reach out to me and...
