    Did anybody pick up one of these animated skeletons who drinks from a glass of wine in the BigLots after Halloween sale? If so I am very interested in purchasing one. Thanks!

    This is an animated Gravedigger prop I made. It's mostly recycled from old props and molds I had in the garage, but I animated it in the "leering ghost" kind of way (bent PVC attached to upper body and running on a slow window motor). I attached mine to the window roller motor with Home Depot...
  3. Halloween Props
    Hi! I'm new to this forum, and I'm looking to create a PVC armature that's animated. I know there's a website that makes them, but $150 for just the frame is pretty steep. I know a friend of mine suggested a company called Witch Doctor, but I simply cannot find the website anywhere. She said she...

  6. Halloween Props
    I'm new to making custom props and am wondering just how much I should expect to spend for simple pop-up props, like trash can trauma or some other pop-up props complete with sound and lights. Is $100 per prop about right? Is arduino the way to go? Also, for air cylinders, do diy pvc cylinders...
  7. Halloween Props
    A couple days ago I purchased a 6ft animated Butler Greeter prop 50% off from the AtHome store. https://www.athome.com/butler-greeter/124236783.html When I set it up the audio started stuttering and it stopped working completely. I called the store and they gave me the choice of returning it...

    I have a few store bought animated props I was looking forward to setting out for my haunt on Halloween. Had a great plan and bought 2 new ones with the said plan in mind.

    http://lenmir.com/ It has some really good prices on animated props, but I'm not sure about it. Does anyone know this site?
  10. Halloween Props
    I picked this up years ago as a package deal with a few other life size props (bone collector, scream, headless horseman for $50 bucks). When I got it I figured I could figure out why she didn't work but honestly it kept getting put in the attic or if pulled out just put into background. At...
  11. For Sale/Trade By Individuals
    I have another “if you’re in the local area” items for sale that I need to get rid of. Bought from Big Lots last year but never even took it out of the box, so it’s still brand new. Retails for $150, asking $100. Unable to ship, it would just cost too much and wouldn’t be worth it even if...

I have been a haunter for over 35 years and a member here for just a few. The help I have gotten has made "Deadview" a very nice success and it has been...

    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...
