    One of the last Animated props in my collection, a true collectors item. This is an Animated Talking Gargoyle. Motion activated, eyes light up, eye lids open and close, wings move back and forth and the Gargoyle talks with a moving mouth. Very rare to find one of these today and one that...

    Hi, Here's my take in the AtmosFX unliving portrait. Controlled by a Raspberry Pi Zero, PIR activated. The project would be a lot simpler if the monitor had hdmi and USB, but it was a old monitor by father was going to throw away and I thought I know what I can use that for.

    Hey Haunters! So I took a much needed break after the season ended but I finally finished my video about my slender man prop. He's motion activated, runs on pneumatics and was a huge hit! He leans forward suddenly and his arms lunge out at you while he plays a sound effect from one of his video...

    Don't want to buy an expensive control box. I have bought a few outdoor motion lights before and wired them to plug in the wall, using the light sockets to plug props. But is there another way, just as cheap, to have a motion detection device and an accurate timer? The motion light I made...

    On an earlier thread I asked if anyone knew how to make the sound activated Spirt Halloween Graveyard Lanterns stay constantly lit instead of the momenary light after being activated by sound. A few replies, but nothing concrete on how to do it, so I decided to take it apart myself and see what...

    Bought a couple of the gravekeeper looking lanterns from Spirit last year not realizing the "candle" only lights up when activated by sound/motion. Anyway to DIY rewire to make the "candle" stay constantly lit? Thanks!!

    This is a medium sized, rubber spider that is resting on a hidden air solenoid nozzle. When the victim presses a button on the control panel, the solenoid is activated and shoots the spider towards them. It’s about 90 psi, from a small air compressor. Added effect: place a glass dome lid...

    My party is tomorrow and I have so much to do! I started decorating a month ago and only have hanging spider egg sacks in the bathroom. Im going to use red lighting in there as well as spider webs and spiders. I have a sound activated lantern on the sink. Is that enough for the bathroom?

    Hello everyone. I bought one of these canvas led paintings at HomeDepot (actually it's the one where the witch is outside a house with a ghost above her but I can't find it on the HD site.). It's perfect for the location I have but I don't want the sound to play, it's fun once or twice but not...

    I'm wondering what folks use for a small pin light (very low lumens). I could buy a cheap battery powered LED pen light, but would love to find something that could be activated with remote and would consider plug in.

    Hi all I recently bought two props that I didn't realize were only sound activated. They turn on when I turn on the power so I am wondering if anyone has played with converting something like this to a timer activation. I've been searching but can't find anything that I can splice inline to do...

    I'm trying to figure out how to make a custom 1-2 minute sound recording that is triggered by a motion sensor and then have it automatically reset and play the next time the motion sensor is activated. I have recorded my sound and put it on a thumb drive. I then put it in a player and selected...

    Hi Folks, We have one of those cheap drop spiders that drop down when you clap right over our door and would really like to be able to trigger it remotely. Is there a specific sound or device that would allow you to do that?

    Has anyone purchased any props by Halloween Haunters? If so, what's the build quality, etc? We have a "scaryoke" band that plays throughout Halloween night and right now have mini-skeletons playing guitar and keyboards, but they're just static props. My friend who helps with our Halloween...

    Hey Haunters! I found these awesome doorbells that poke your finger at CVS this year and just HAD to turn them into something cool. I used a sound activated gargoyle to make this prop animated when you press the button. I think it's gunna get a lot of people off guard in my interactive queue...

Could someone please help with this ...

    I like to decorate my front yard so that adults and older kids are entertained, but little kids aren't traumatized. Last year I had a bazillion pumpkins everywhere, as well as two suburban skeleton guys in lawn chairs with a fire pit. It was a surprisingly big hit, with people posing for...

    Hey all. Trying my hand at DIY props this year. Looking to go Ardurino over Pico as it seems to be less expensive. So, sorry if my question is too vague or open ended. Basically I'm doing an human interactive electric chair with electric sander, vibrating motors, flash cracker and routed fog...
