  1. General Halloween
    Hello Everyone! My name is Cal Rustad, I am a young engineer / project designer and I am creating this thread to discuss and share progress on my newest and largest project, the world's first fully automated Home Theme Park Dark Ride / Motion Simulator attraction implementing animatronics...
  2. Halloween Props
    Hey gang. So I made a rookie mistake in purchasing some all-red LEDs with black cord (link here): LEDs What I didn't realize is that these lights have pre-set modes, but no memory. And for the LIFE of me, I don't know why they don't make "always on" the first pre-set mode. So now, when I...
  3. Halloween Props
    This mask is being used on a cemetery sign and thus high off the ground. It has the electronic eyes. I unplugged the try me button and plugged in the on/off switch and set to the on setting. When the power is unplugged and then restored, the eyes will not turn back on without flipping the...
  4. Halloween Props
    So I have been building cannons for my pirate display...FINALLY! But now am running into a few gray areas that I need to reach out and find answers. Not fully electronically challenged, but am programming challenged. I am sure I could do it, but do not know how to begin to look for programs...
  5. Halloween Props
    The other year we bought one of those window holiday screen projectors (for UK based folks, it was those ones they had in B&M at one point that everyone went mad for at christmas) 🎥 It has some great halloween animations on, but they look dull when projected onto the window. I think its a...

    The Aamon Duo prop controller from Purgatory Props is now for sale! This dual channel prop controller with a bonus third output aims to bridge a gap in the market left by existing controllers. The solid-state outputs means there isn't any complicated, confusing, or unnecessary wiring. The push...
  7. Halloween Props
    I just completed my "mimic" project that uses a sensor and Raspberry Pi mounted on a ball cap that uses WiFi to send the operator's head orientation to another Pi that controls a 3-Axis skull. I'm pretty happy with the results! (A shoutout to Greg G on Haunt Forum for the ball cap mount idea)...
  8. Halloween Props
    Since it is almost Valentine's day, I thought I'd share my heart, hand, and head prop from last Halloween - actually, in 2019 was used as part of a zombie virus theme (my mad scientist lab developed a vaccine to save the day - rather prescient, actually) and then I showed it in 2020 to my...
  9. Halloween Props
    I grew up watching Sci-fi and Horror. Over the years I have seen so many uses for a severed head. I've always wanted to make one of my head! I have so many different props I would like to make with it! The one that really stands out is and android head. In Star Trek The Next Generation they...
  10. Tutorials and Step-By-Step
    Hello! I have made a project for Halloween. I record an instruction how I made a silicone heart model, put electronics inside it and submerged the model in freshwater, then added 6 kilos of salt to reach zero-gravity: https://youtu.be/mr6ep1Ta29E What do you think about this project?
  11. Wanted to Buy
    The sound on mine has died. I have not had past success putting in new speakers in props (not very good with electronics). Thx, Mike
  12. 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...
  13. Halloween Props
    I posted some 2018 Videos http://www.snydercentral.com/halloween/H2018/H2018.htm It was the saddest start ever but it got better. The old standby props saved the day. The new stuff all got crammed into the garage. We woke up the next day with the Flu that made packing the stuff up extra fun...
  14. General Halloween
    Hey all, Looking to step up my halloween display for next year and want to get into electronics and was wondering if anyone has/knows of good tutorials for beginners? I'm found some videos online, but figured I would ask here for more Halloween centric tutorials? Thanks.
  15. Halloween Props
    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...
  16. Member Introduction
    Hi, I'm a big halloween fan, and I like to make electronics and software projects. I want to show off some of my props here, and show how I made them.
  17. Halloween Costume Ideas
    With the talk about Space Force I thought it would be unique to make a "uniform" for this Halloween. The blue NASA coveralls/flight suit is so iconic, at least to my generation, that I decided to start with that idea. I bought some navy blue coveralls in my size as a starting point. On the...
  18. Halloween Props
    I found these two circuit boards with a box of electrical components I have for Halloween props but have no idea what they are for. They were with a bucky skull, deer motor and wiper motor. It looks like they have leds but I have no idea what they're for or where I got them from. Any HELP...
  19. Halloween Props
    I saw this great prop at Spirit, our local Halloween store, but the price was outrageous! Its an electronic prop, but I design electronics for a living so I decided to make something similar. Basically the prop is a gargoyle sitting on a pedestal. When it detects motion the eyes light up and it...
