    All, I humbly come before you all to ask for a birthday favor. I'd like to have a Ouija board birthday cake and I have the image saved but if possible, I'd like the board to read "Happy 48th Birthday Wes'. I have ZERO knowledge of image editing software and I'm hoping one of you can help me...
  2. Static: Halloween Train Platform Build

    We've been doing the Halloween trains for years and have gone through multiple versions and train sizes. I decided this year to make it a little larger but also have room for some of our Halloween light up houses and to make more room for some of the larger train cars like the Ecto 1 last...

  4. Other: How to paint a Squawkers McCaw / faux fur?

    Halloween Props
    After seeing some great projects with it here I finally bought a Squawkers McCaw and the board to go with it from J-Man. The problem is that my theme is a spooky graveyard, nothing piratey. My solution is to turn Squakwers into a zombie parrot in a cage, but I'm not sure how to tackle paining...

    REQUEST FOR TUTURIALS GO HERE
    I want to make a ouija board where people can stand in front of it and ask it a question, and perhaps have someone on the underside/hidden under the table and be able to move the little pointer around to talk back to them. I feel like this can be done with magnets perhaps or something but I have...

  7. Static: Foam board insulation-how do you get the 48"x8' sheets home?

    Halloween Props
    /scratches head. I know this sounds like a stupid question (and maybe it is) but-I don't have a truck-and I have to believe that I'm not the only one;) I can't find anywhere that will deliver the foam board used to make tombstones etc for a sane price. So that makes things a little difficult...
  8. Static: Climbing Skeletons

    Halloween Props
    I want to add some climbing skeletons to my house this year. I've seen tutorials on how to hang them on aluminum siding with Christmas light clips. I have cement board siding on my house which is not as forgiving as aluminum. I could probably find a plastic clip that I could slide underneath the...

  12. Electronic/Software: Spirit Graveyard Lantern Hack-My first hack!

    Halloween Props
    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...

  18. Other: UV water dyes

    Halloween Props
    Has anyone tried UV dyes in water fountains to make the water glow? If so, is it worth while? If not UV dyes, what other items get the best bloody results? My asylum doctor is going to have a sink nearby that will be pumping water. (might have gone over board with the 1/2HP pump - it was...
  19. Electronic/Software: Life size Regan exorcist animated prop repair?

    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...
