  1. Haunted house on Google Maps

    General Halloween
    Anyone ever see their home on Google Maps and realize that the photo is from October?!?! I used GPS on my phone to check for traffic issues on my route home the other day and inadvertently found that the “Street View” for the area was taken in October! Excellent! For some extended time that will...
  2. Mechanical: Help with cauldron creep head movement

    Halloween Props
    I could really use some advice to save me time and aggravation. See my video first: https://youtu.be/dUAD_fsq1fA I'm having a couple challenges with the head. First, what should I do to get the head to come up more vertical? At its highest point, it is still too angled down for my taste. My...
  3. Mechanical: Looking for a thread for life size music box dancer.

    Halloween Props
    I saw where someone made a life size skeleton couple that danced as if they were on a music box. This was either last year or the year before and for the life of me I cant find the thread anywhere. Any help would be appreciated. The wife has wanted me to make one for the past ten years. We...
  4. Any Catholics here, perhaps silly question.

    Off-Topic Stuff
    My oldest is taking a music in religion course at the university. One of his assignments is to visit several services of various faiths and do a report on how they use music. Since he didn't want to go alone, I've been going with him. He wants to do Easter Vigil for his Catholic portion...
  5. Boney Bunch 2019

    General Halloween
    we must be on the downhill slide to Halloween now....I have thought about new boneys several times in the last couple of weeks. What are we hoping for? Personally, I'd love to see the classic movie monsters and a really nice haunted house a la the Addams Family or the Munsters...gothic and...

  7. Upcycling a cheap mask

    Tutorials and Step-By-Step
    I have a cheap, flimsy Frankenstein mask I bought at Walmart several years ago. The paint job on it is terrible, but I always thought the sculpt was kind of cool. I decided to make it into a piece of wall art. This is what the piece looked like coming out of storage. The mask was wrinkled...
  8. Static: Large iceberg/glacier props for Frankenstein in the Arctic theme

    Halloween Props
    Hello all! Anyone else pining for the season? This year's haunt theme is the last voyage of Frankenstein's ship. We plan on converting the front porch into a ship and turning the front yard into an arctic sea. Wondering if anyone has thoughts on creating icebergs, lit from within. My initial...
  9. Mechanical: Turned a head turner prop to a Christmas tree oscillator

    Halloween Props
    Thought I'd share a head turner prop which was shortly made into a Christmas tree oscillator. I used a couple of pieces 1/2 threaded pipe, 3/4 PVC, 1' aluminum flat bar, some crap plywood, and a couple of nuts and bolts. The angle wiper motor mounting plate was bought from Frightprops. I'll...

  17. Alexa the sound box!

    General Halloween
    Probably no surprise but you can put those mp3 and cd players away, Alexa to the rescue! Have some pc speakers laying around - even better. If you have Amazon prime just ask her to play scary sounds, thunderstorm, or Halloween music. I figured on the Halloween music play list but the scary...
  18. Halloween Party 2018

    Party Ideas. Experiences and Recipes
    How did you parties turn out? Ours was Saturday and it poured down rain. Our turn out wasn't what we hoped with 9 of our "Yeses" not showing up and none of our 11 maybes. So we planned for turn out in the mid twenties including us and ended up with 14. But it's not the first year we have had a...

    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...
  20. Free graveyard fence - Long Beach CA

    For Sale/Trade By Individuals
    I posted this in the Props forum a couple of days ago. This may be a better place for it... I made a bunch of graveyard fence and ended up having three sections extra. I'll never use it and I can't think of a better use than giving it to someone on this forum. Each section is about 9'. I have...
