    I've considered using lasers but am afraid some kid will go out of his/her way to move directly into the path of and stare at the light. Do the lights move so quickly that that isn't an issue?

    A few years ago when I attended Nightmare New England (pro haunt attraction), they lit up a section of trees with a very cool lighting effect. I'll briefly describe it but I doubt I'll be able to find the device that produced it. It would shoot random white points of light at the canopy and then...

    This is a laser swamp test that I put together using a green laser pointer that I bought on Ebay for around $2 mixed with a "line" laser lens that I got from a red line laser module (also on Ebay) for 58 cents. in the future I will probably try to see what adding mirrors will do to amplify the...
  5. General Halloween
    Couldn't put much out with steady rain all day and night - so I relied heavily on lighting and lots of movement. Used my Shiatsu's to "float" jack-o-lanterns in the upper windows and move my old scary lady in her antique wheelchair under cover of the porch. Had my fogger near the skellie...

    I've been very busy this year and haven't had much time for props like I usually do but my daughter and I did manage to build this mausoleum facade to house my laser vortex. We'll make the gate next year.
  7. Member Introduction
    Hello Everyone. I'm now in my 4th year of decking out my yard with various props to scare and delight. Mostly I enjoy making props myself with inspiration and guidance from many in this forum. I sometimes repurpose the commercial props sold from the Halloween popups, picking them up after...
  8. General Halloween
    Hi, I never got around to posting my last years display. It went down well, got some nice comments on the night and even made a couple of kids run back to their parents crying. I know that sounds cruel, but secretly I was a little proud. Most the ToT's are small children dressed up, but I did...

    I would like to show my Halloween 2018 prop I've been working on. It's a pneumatic stand up skeleton controlled by an Arduino. It's triggered by a laser trip wire, though I'm might change it back to PIR The eyes and ribs flashing is to let me know when the program is finished, so that might...

    For my birthday this year I was given this awesome looking metal cauldron, so my brain immediately went to work on how to best incorporate it into our display. We have the rising swamp hag coming out of a stump in our bayou area, so I decided it made most sense next to her. Our bayou area is a...

    Last year we set up a vortex using a pen style laser. After 90 minutes of changing batteries, I gave it up. Lotsa other stuff go in' on, don't ha know... what do you guys recommend for this year? I'm thinking something 110 Volt...

    My daughter and I have been working on this for weeks and just finished painting it yesterday. We tried the the noodle root approach but couldn't get the used shrink wrap to stick very good so we covered it with spray foam. I'm going to put my laser vortex in the middle of it.

    I bought a Hurricane 1302 fogger and will build my fog chiller. I need to know what type of laser and dispersion device I need to shoot a green beam at low height to create the green swamp effect. Any ideas? Not trying to spend a ton here....I have seen people do this with a $70 laser but...

    What do people use for their lasers? I made a tunnel last year and used some crappy battery powered pointers, but we had to constantly switch them out because they would dim. Is there something out there that will run off an outlet, and will run for several hours without crapping out?
  15. Halloween Props
    I bought the little party laser over a year ago and finally got around to putting it all together today. It looks much better in person (no black lines) than in the video. It's so wicked in my garage but it's behind my house so i was wondering where and how others use their vortex?
  16. Tutorials and Step-By-Step
    Hi guys, thought I'd post up a simple little project I've been working on over the last few days. The aim is to make a laser trip wire trigger that is simple, cheap and can be used to trigger a variety of props (or even control a DIY prop itself for those of you who are more advanced with your...

    Has anyone bought a laser vortex from this guy? The video on YouTube recites the name Juneau Studios, is it a good buy ? I'm spending $71.00 bucks, I might be inclined to make one myself but I just don't want spend money if I'm making one that might turn out crappy, any advice or can someone...

    I've seen this issue about laser holiday lights causing problems and thought I would mention it here. This is just a few of many news stories out there about different situations: http://www.travelpulse.com/news/airlines/faa-laser-christmas-lights-are-interfering-with-planes.html...
