  2. Fog: Fog machine wiring diagram

    Halloween Props
    Hello, I'm trying to build a new trigger (timer and/or motion detector) for my small fog machine (110vac). It initially had a wireless trigger device which plugged into a 3-conductor connector at the rear of the machine. The device has failed. I've been looking at the schematic for a while...
  3. Electronic/Software: Skeleton tree lunger

    Halloween Props
    Hello, I recently bought this Halloween skeleton tree lunger from Big Lots. It has a motion and sound activation function, but does not seem to be working for me. There is a try me button attached to it and that works quite well. I was wondering if anyone knew how I might be able to extend the...

    Hi Folks, We have one of those cheap drop spiders that drop down when you clap right over our door and would really like to be able to trigger it remotely. Is there a specific sound or device that would allow you to do that?
  6. Adopt A Ghost...

    General Halloween
    An Idea I'm going to try this year. I figure I got all the scary skeleton monsters and stuff in my graveyard for the older kids and such I needed something for the little ones. Essentially what the plan is I bought 100 Ghost Balloons and 100 Neo Loons(light up balloon inserts). I still got to...

  8. Help - Thunder track needed

    Halloween Music
    I recently moved to a new computer and must not have transferred over the thunder track I use. And I also "misplaced" all my MP3 players with the various soundtracks I use. But I've found everything that was on them except for the thunder track. Hoping someone has a decent one I could use...

  11. Other: Spray Grip for Spray Paint

    Halloween Props
    I wanted to pass along this little device that's well worth the $3. It's a spray grip attachment to go on spray paint turning it into a trigger control instead of having to push down on the top nozzle. I'm guessing many of you just use your airbrushes or may already know about it but for those...
