  1. Prop Showcase: Boris: The Evolution Of A Giant Spider

    Halloween Props
    This was Boris Jr last Halloween. I think this is the best he's ever looked. Unfortunately, I just moved out of state, and ended up giving him away to another haunter, but I plan on building a newer, better one in the future.
  2. A Halloween Room

    General Halloween
    I think a suitable name would be either "The Chamber" or "The Sanctuary" For the walls, I'd go with a fall color...maybe a pale rust orange, or a light brown. On a side note, in a few weeks I too will be moving out of the DC area to Michigan. I'm not sure how many ToTs I'll get there (probably...

    I've recently binge watched Stranger Things 1&2, and I came with a dustin joke meme. Fans of the show may appreciate this (I hope:confused:)
  5. Electronic/Software: Simple Circuit Board For Random Movement

    Halloween Props
    A simple 90 degree servo arm movement would work for me. I can wrangle the mechanics and dimensions of the linkages to make it work.
  6. Electronic/Software: Simple Circuit Board For Random Movement

    Halloween Props

  7. Electronic/Software: Simple Circuit Board For Random Movement

    Halloween Props
    I need help from all you electronics gurus out there. Here's my problem: I want to build a spider prop, based on this spider The abdomen of the prop will be about 6 to 8 inches in diameter. The front and rear legs will be about 12 to 16 inches long, and the side legs will be proportionately...
  8. A Use for Campaign Signs

    General Halloween
    I use the wire frames in prop building and cut pieces of the thicker rods to anchor my older white foam tombstones.
  9. Prop Showcase: need ideas for this 2019 haunt....

    Halloween Props
    Maybe a scene from "Psycho". Perhaps you could re-create the office of the Bates Motel. Have a sign-in book and lots of creepy taxidermy-d birds on the walls. Or a mummified Mrs. Bates sitting in her rocking chair downstairs in the 'fruit room'.

  11. Static: Bulking Up your Character Props

    Halloween Props
    Another method is using bubble wrap (the large bubble type) and packaging tape. It's lightweight and you can layer it to build up muscles/joints.

    General Halloween
    Three days ago our forecast was rain Friday through Monday, then clear and 53 degrees on Halloween day. Well, the forecast has taken a turn for the better....rain tonight and tomorrow, then clear , and a high of 70 on Halloween day. :D
  15. Questions!

    Games
    I've gotten older and have less energetic :D No major life events, but I have built a new animatronic prop this year (that I haven't tested yet and hope won't fail last minute :confused:) to accompany my cauldron creep.
