  1. Mechanical: Help Me Remember - Lunging Witch Animated Prop

    Halloween Props
    I cannot remember where I saw this prop. It was a witch or old lady sitting down with hair over her face, but then she raises her head revealing her face, cackles or says something I think, then slowly rises and suddenly moves toward you a few feet on some kind of ground rail. If anyone could...

    Halloween Props
    Most of you have probably seen my "tomato cage" witch I made about 4 years ago.

  13. Mechanical: Undead Granny Issues

    Halloween Props
    When Spirit introduced this prop I immediately pre-ordered it. It is unique and the concept is clever. I love her movement being different from most props. However, there are a couple of negatives which ruins it. Any suggestions on how to resolve her issues are appreciated. I hate to send her...
  14. Mechanical: treadmill ghost dragon

    Halloween Props
    I was lucky enough to get a treadmill to play with this year. I was planning on a walking zombie (snagged in barbed wire) but the movements came out very rapture looking. I'd made a very simple dragon face from a ATV fender years ago and when I ran across it in a pile I decided to res the...

    Halloween Props
    We hold a haunted house every year to raise funds for the Cancer Society. This year, I am looking for something to increase the scare factor.
