  1. Halloween Props
    Started out just wanting to see how detailed I could make a corpsed skeleton, then it evolved into a corpse on a stake, then into a corpse staked on a tree branch with some severed rotting heads alongside. The corpsing was done with latex, shop towel and great stuff. There are a few other odds...

    ​Partsman's Note: Here's another how-to from Death Lord enjoy There are lots of places to find how to make a toe pincher casket on the internet, but I couldn't find a single place on building authentic coffins. Above you can see that we have used the dimensions of an actual casket to place our...

    I have this motor with pulley that is attached to my cage prop that I want to spin a couple feet off the ground. Are there any suggestions on how I can anchor this motor to some fixed point? I tried attached to a long piece of wood whose ends were held between two bird feeder poles but I'm...
    Hi - Wondering if anyone has ever made a Miss Havisham (from Great Expectations, of course) type wedding cake, meaning: rotting, collapsing, etc. - not a real cake, just a set piece. I looked for a tutorial here and on Pinterest, but I can't find anything. It doesn't seem like an original...

    Bought one of these either last year or year before. Have lost the instruction along the way. My question is how do you get it to play one scene over and over instead of switching to a different scene when the one ends?

    Hello, my name is Deborah. Our condo is nearly entirely set up for Halloween already as we speak. I like to have it done no later than October 1st, so I can enjoy it all month long. We moved to Issaquah, Washington just over a year ago from California, where I spent the first almost 60 years...

    This is my pneumatic version of a Skelly Coffin Groundbreaker. It's a work in progress, static portion is complete, still have to do the controls and audio. Top of the coffin is 42", the top of the skelly's head is at 3 feet. He's mounted to a 4-bar linkage that when triggered, he jumps out and...

    The prop I have wanted to build for three years has finally been accomplished. I took it for a test run today and it works great. I still have a few odds and ends to finish and I'm thinking about adding skulls to the walls but so far I'm very pleased with the work.
  15. Halloween Props
    Worked on the cauldron for our witch scene. Scrounged up 3 similar limbs for the tripod and lashed them together. Had a piece of old rusty chain and picked up a new "S" hook to hold the handle. The handle is just 1/4" flexible water hose that I heated/bent the ends to make hooks. Nerxt will be...

  18. General Halloween
    Every year I do this to myself. I plan waaaaaaaaaaaayyyy too many things that I want to do and then can't realistically complete them all. So I either cut back (and only do a few) or try to do everything (and then it ends up looking crappy becasue I rushed it). Either way, I feel like I'm...
