  2. Electronic/Software: Our singing grim reaper

    Halloween Props
    This is quite an old test pattern we made to test the motion and audio syncing for our 3-axis skull. There's a custom PCB running the 4 servos inside the head and a VB6 program which plays the sound and sends commands to the PCB over RS485. We took plenty of pictures of the build process Grim...

  5. Static: Grim reaper & monster mud question

    Halloween Props
    For anyone who has built this one: https://www.instructables.com/id/Monster-Mud-Reaper/ Can it be disassembled once the burlap has been Monster Mudded? Or is it pretty much a permanent statue at that point? Storage is limited so I make all my props so they can be broken down. If not, I may have...

    Halloween Props
    Hi Everyone! I am so grateful for this forum. :D This is my first year finding it and it has been a lifesaver! I am looking for a little help with some back stories for props I have in my Dead and Breakfast this year. I typically can write with the best of them, but I am having a hard time...
  7. Static: Grim Stitch Factory

    Halloween Props
    I have watched a few YouTube videos on people making their own burlap mask, and they came out fairly well. As meticulous as we are at doing designs I think the wife and I can make a very nice mask much like GrimStitchFactory does. I already have everything except those vintage 6 inch needles...
  8. Prop Showcase: Grim Grinning Ghosts

    Halloween Props
    Trying to add some "fun/cool" to my stuff this year. I've seen some VERY impressive projected singing busts (Grim Grinning Ghosts) in the past and wanted to do one myself... Bought the standard styrofoam heads for $1.00 off eBay (china delivery) and started adding Dap ElastoPatch (It has the...

  10. Any alternatives for Monster Mud??

    Halloween Prop Building Group
    Hi everyone!! I was wondering if there was a lightweight alternative to monster mud or any ideas for substitutes? Some of us at work are planning on a Grim Reaper prop as a decoration, but I dont have enough time to make it right or enough of the funds to buy what is needed for real monster...
  11. Static: Grave Yard Grim Reaper

    Halloween Props
    After reading the post "Monster Mud Grim Reaper" from jimmyzdc I stole every idea from him and then tweaked it just bit, and I have to say his post and the step by step process was awesome and extremely helpful! My grim reaper is just under 8' feet tall , I was originally going to have the...

    Halloween Props
    I'd been lurking for a while, but finally registered to post! My husband and I have long dreamed about setting up a Grin Grinning Ghosts display in front of our house for Halloween. This year we also discovered projecting (via AtmosfearFX) in windows for Halloween, and decided to jump on the...

    Hello everyone. New to the forum and new to Light o Rama. I am gearing up for Halloween and adding light show to my previous set of Projection singing pumpkins. I have been given most but missing Dead Man's Party and Grim Grinning Ghost. I had seen some archived posts of someone offering...

  16. Mechanical: I need help. Anyone familiar with "talking grim reaper"

    Halloween Props
    I have had my talking grim reaper for about 15 years and there is a red wire that is connected to the dc (red wire) in the skull that is disconnected, I can't find where it connects, so nothing is working. The eyes do not light up, the mouth doesn't move, a voice doesn't come out of it. ANY help...

  18. Mechanical: Raggedy Ann Attacks!

    Halloween Props
    Our theme this year is "Scary Tales and Toys." We tried just fairy tales but ran out of ideas. So, in our "Toy Section" we will have this big beautiful girl. She's about 6'5" and I used the motor from one of those noise-activated pop-up grim reaper props (like this one) in her shoulder to make...
  19. Monster mud question

    Halloween Props
    Question.... So I really don't want to spend the money to buy a mixer to do the monster mud mix. I plan on doing a Grim reaper and was thinking of using latex paint only?
