    Hello! I've been lurking here awhile and have learned a lot from you all. Thank you! I've recently dismantled a Homedics back massager for the motors to be used in a new prop but have no idea on how to wire them. I'd like to be able to connect them to a standard power cord. The motors have only...

    I made a prosthetic claw out of foam for a zombie walk and now I wish to make it better. I want sparks when the claw ends touch. Fright Props used to sell "Spark Gloves" that were battery operated and safe for user and others. Unfortunately they don't sell those anymore and I can't find any...
  5. General Halloween
    Seems like as time goes on, I'm having more and more of my store bought props starting to fail. Mostly not lighting up, not moving or activating properly. One of my fave props, a Nosferatu-like hanging bat, went out right after the first season I bought him. I still hang him up, but I hate that...

    I know many of you want to colorize your displays. And DJ supply companies and musical stores like to sell those colored gels. However, they can be expensive. So what is an affordable option? 3-ring binder dividers! Grab the transparent colored plastic dividers, kinda like these...

    Hi everyone, I've left my Halloween preparations late this year (thanks, life) but I'm really hoping to finally get a good solution for a thunder and lightning machine. Every year I spend hours searching the internet, and every year I give up in dismay. I'd like a thunder & lightning machine...

    Image: Youtube video of High Voltage/Death Row combo: This will be my second time doing a yard haunt, but this is the first year we’re going all in. We will be doing an asylum theme. I’ve already got the lovely Death Row inmate, but am looking for the High Voltage box that can activate it...

    I have a question for the more electrically inclined. I have an outlet outside the house for plugging in my Halloween decorations but the trouble is that I need to run multiple extension chords and then multi plugs to each individual item. I also have some items that are running on 12 V and 5 V...

  13. Halloween Props
    Hi all I am interested in buying a prop I've had my eye on from a US store to be used in the UK. Given the differences in electrical systems, I'm after some advice. I've had a look on the website for this prop and on the actual prop instructions, it states that the UL power adaptor has an input...

    Hey guys, I've been lurking on the boards on and off since I found them last year. I tried a few small projects last year inspired by some of the stuff I saw here, but this year I took the plunge into building something more involved. So this is what I have with my Spider so far. I bought...

  19. Halloween Props
    I've been trying to get into the habit of either procuring or creating at least one big thing each year. This year, although I didn't have a haunt that it would fit in, I decided to make an Electrical Transformer for my desk at work. I love working on it since I am new to making physical things...

    I have several of the Grandin Road singing skeletons that I want to trigger at different times so it appears to be a concert. I have an elevated front porch that overlooks the sidewalk. The skeletons are a combination of battery and electrical plug operated. They are motion and sound...
