  8. Don't buy Duracell batteries

    Product Reviews
    Duracell batteries Not sure if this has been mentioned here but don't use Duracell batteries in your props or anything else for that matter. I've lost track of how many Duracell AA's have gone bad and leaked the last couple years. They used to be one of the best batteries you could buy but now...
  9. Mechanical: Which prop(s) were most effective

    Halloween Props
    For me it was two spirit props. Deadly roots. This big prop scared the heck out of most everyone and fascinated people too. What really brought this prop to life was adding external speakers which made it loud. I used a step pad under the front door mat and unsuspecting tots got quite a scare...
  10. Electronic/Software: Wolfie wiring

    Halloween Props
    I was tired of changing batteries and having to turn on and off props every night. So I have been wiring every prop to run off power supplies. I have already rewired tea lights and a number of different props but when I got to the wolf I could not get it to work. Most of the props were easy...
  11. Lighting: Walgreens Candle Hack

    Halloween Props
    Last year after Halloween Walgreens hit 90% off, and one of the finds were LED candles for 40 cents a pair. I was not about to get 2 AA batteries for every candle, so I decided to make candle clusters. Straight forward to solder wires to the back of each candle tip,which unscrews from the...

    Halloween Props
    So, my local spirit gave me the display try me button yesterday because I wanted one for my jumping spider, but when I opened the battery compartment, the contacts and batteries were missing. I decided to take it apart to see more about this, and it looks like there is no wire connecting to the...
  14. Help with Battery vs. AC Adapter

    Tutorials and Step-By-Step
    Hey Guys, I have one of those handheld torches that use 2 C batteries. If left on the batteries die in like an hour. I made my own battery eliminator device and attached it to a 4.8vdc wall wart. Now these batteries are 3vdc combined right? So 4.8v should be plenty, or am I backward? When I...
  15. Mechanical: Ouija Board from Wal-Mart/Five Below Stores

    Halloween Props
    I bought this Ouija board back in the spring when Wal-mart.com had them on sale for around $7.50. These same boards had also been for sale at the "Five and Below" stores in the past. Been trying to get around to turning it into a Haunted/Animated Ouija. Worked out pretty good. Luckily, this...
