  4. 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...

    I want to find a battery operated motion sensor that will detect motion about 10-12' away, and display different LED colors depending on motion or no motion. I'd like to be able to control the update period, being able to vary its detection between a few times per minute to once every 1...

  13. 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...

    General Halloween
    Can't remember who it was that posted a while back about just starting out and wanting to go big, but being on a budget. I had replied that a small budget just means add a little each year, make as much as you can from whatever you can get cheap or free, hit the clearance sales, and grow it...

  19. Mechanical: UK Monster-in-a-box

    Halloween Props
    Hi all, Halloween isn't as popular in the UK as it is in the US, but I'm hopefully going to change that over the next few years as I build my drive / front garden (yard?) display, well at least in my leafy part of West Sussex anyway. I have a lot of prop building experience (R2D2, 2 x Daleks...
