    Tutorials and Step-By-Step
    I posted these in the Lab Rats thread and had a few requests for a tutorial, so here we go! Lit in light/dark: These were made for probably less than $2 a piece, but I had quite a bit of this stuff lying around. I'm sure there would be a lot of ways to tackle the basic premise and make it...

    I was researching props for a Mad Scientist Lab when I came across this video. It may be the best prop building and setup I've ever seen for a home haunter. Does it belong to someone here in the forum? (BTW: Give it a minute to get through the intro and the synth music. ;) )
