  1. Burlap mask question

    Tutorials and Step-By-Step
    Hello, I see these awesome burlap masks and understand to soak the burlap and place on a head and let it dry. My main question is how do you put them on? Are they cut down the side or back to pull over the head? Maybe glue some black stretchy material inside of the cut so it can close again once...

  3. Haunted house on Google Maps

    General Halloween
    Anyone ever see their home on Google Maps and realize that the photo is from October?!?! I used GPS on my phone to check for traffic issues on my route home the other day and inadvertently found that the “Street View” for the area was taken in October! Excellent! For some extended time that will...

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...

  6. Black cat sitting on a fence

    General Halloween
    Found this adorable hollow concrete cat a while back. Today I decided to paint him black & perch him on a fence post. There are strong wooden dowels inside so he isn’t easily stolen or knocked off.
  7. Pneumatic: Can this be made into a pneumatic prop?

    Halloween Props
    I found this chest in neighbor's trash this morning, and I was wondering if my creature dude could be made to slowly come out of the chest as the lid opens? Creature is made of heavy foam and latex, and I'd have to shave a couple inches off the rear for him to fully fit. Even then, his head...
  8. Halloween Treat Sacks

    General Halloween
    I am jumping on the bandwagon to give out small toys with the full size bars this year. I have already collected mini Play-Doh cans, mini stencils & erasers (will get pencils to go with them) and some Hot Wheels.

  9. Ourdoor speaker setup

    Party Ideas. Experiences and Recipes
    Hi all! First, I will preface this with - not sure how to categorize this!, as its not really a prop Q, and not really a music-specific question either. Rather a general speakers set up.. In the past, I've run with a Jambox (company now obsolete, I think - but essentially a mobile BLUETOOTH...

  14. Target -- 2019

    General Halloween
    Was in Target this week and saw these kind of cool Harry Potter-licensed lamps. The bulb sits down inside the base. For anyone doing a Potter theme though these might look great on two entrance columns for example. Didn't see the price on them and might be up on the website. They were refreshing...
