  1. Neighbors who are complete A**holes

    Off-Topic Stuff
    Seems like there's always some complete A**hole in every sub. But why do they always end up being my neighbors? A few years ago we were fortunate to be able to by a house for my daughter while she attended college. It was a nice little house in a huge sub, but still close to campus. Almost...

  3. The first (and probably last) Ghostbusters Halloween train!

    General Halloween
    Been working on this idea for a while. I've taken an old Ecto 1 remote controlled car with lights and siren that a guy modified to add more lights and wanted to mount it to one of my trains for Halloween. The trick was it had to be high enough to get around the other trains since I've got 3...

  5. Mechanical: Zultan transistor

    Halloween Props
    I'm hoping to find a transistor expert in here. I've got an old Zultan that we've had forever and we love. The Curtains stopped opening (common problem). Temporarily I wired them open, but now I'm trying to fix it. In chasing the lack of voltage getting to the motor I came across a...
  6. Star Trek Movie Uniform

    Halloween Costume Ideas
    I am a fat guy, and it's hard to come up with good Halloween costumes for someone my shape. This year my brother suggested a Star Trek movie uniform, as some of the cast members had put on some weight. I knew the Monster Maroon Uniform was beyond my skill level, but then Scotty's Costume from...

  9. Help! Fat Guy Storyteller

    Halloween Costume Ideas
    So, I'm pretty huge into Halloween, but honestly, I've ever been that big into costuming. As a 6' 4" 320 lb guy, I don't quite fit the mold of many of the characters I find scary/fascinating. However, the school I'm working at is doing a Halloween storytelling event, and I'm going to be doing a...

    Halloween Props
    I have this 1/2 mannequin that I have no idea what to do with. Last year I sat it in a chair in clothes. So it just looked like an headless guy. It was boring. Does anyone have a better idea of what I could maybe do with it? The arms stay behind its back. I can move them forwards if it has a...

  14. Recording technology

    Member Introduction
    I like to decorate my front yard so that adults and older kids are entertained, but little kids aren't traumatized. Last year I had a bazillion pumpkins everywhere, as well as two suburban skeleton guys in lawn chairs with a fire pit. It was a surprisingly big hit, with people posing for...
  15. Static: Zommbie Silhouettes?

    Halloween Props
    I want to create several life-size zombies using my 5'x10' CNC router table. I am looking for patterns I can use. Yes, I CAN draw my own, but time is in short supply these days. Is there a source for good zombie silhouettes that I can cut out of a board material like PVC board or some other...

  18. Static: Painting Plastic Cauldron

    Halloween Props
    I was thinking about using Drylok as a base to give it some texture, and then using some kind of thick goo. I saw a post online about a guy who used oatmeal, but I don't think it worked for him. Just looking for some suggestions. Thanks
  19. How did you get started?

    General Halloween
    I may have posted a similar thread years ago, but time passes...indulge me. What flipped a switch in you, what triggered something inside if you that made you start to freak out kids on Halloween? When I was a boy, I loved Halloween. The masks, the candy, the pumpkins, I loved all of it. But I...
