  5. Failing Store Bought Props

    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...

  11. Grr… Went from 3 to 1 fog machine

    General Halloween
    Figures, just when I thought I was going to have 3 fog machines this year… A couple of months ago, I tested our main fog machine and it was fine. The cheap 400W Chauvet and the 1000W no-name brand I got from Goodwill had seized up, so I put a 50/50 vinegar solution in and ran them, which...

    Halloween Props
    My Ripping Reaper of Souls prop quit opening his robe all of the way. Then after a few cycles, started making a whizzing sound from the gear area and doesn't open the robe at all now. I cut the back cloth open to access the motor and gears, but I really don't know what I'm looking at. Can...
