  1. Animating my Carnevil

    General Halloween
    Last year I did a Creepy Clown Carnival. It was mostly static because I got the wrong size motor for my wheel of death. This year I want to build a parachute drop ride with zombie babies riding on umbrella/parachutes. My issue is I can not find any plans or anyone who has attempted this. Has...

    Ever since I saw the attached old picture, I've been enamored of the idea of just riding around one Halloween night in a mosquito costume like this. Unfortunately, I have no idea where to start with a project like this. I already have the perfect black bicycle, just need the costume to match.
