  3. Prop Showcase: My first witch prop

    Halloween Props
    This year I am making 3 witches that will be standing around a giant cauldron. It's my first attempt at paper maching anything human like. Thanks to all the great inspiration here I was able to turn out something passable. Still have to paint these, but here is my first witch's head and hands...
  4. Mechanical: Basic Animatronic Advice

    Halloween Props
    Hello All, I am looking to get into some very very basic animatronics. I'm talking like single armature, 45 Degree Movement of maybe 10lbs prop weight. I would like to do a werewolf mannequin that rotates his torso/arms as one of them (will probably replace my old wooden skeleton with...
  5. My Music Shares.

    Halloween Music
    I hope you all realize that i am sharing recordings here that are very rare. In most cases they are impossible to find anymore. I've spent over ten years collecting these recordings mostly off ebay. I learned about most of these recordings from the scar stuff blog. In 2005 i set about...

  8. Why I am anti-TRUNK or treat

    General Halloween
    *Warning- long post. I refuse to get into a debate. If you think differently, it's fine- you are entitled to your opinion as I am mine, just don't try to change my mind.* I will not support candy-grubbing laziness by participating in a trunk-or-treat. Here's why... I remember growing up, my...

  10. What I Learned from my First Secret Reaper Exchange

    General Halloween
    I learned that I should save the tracking number from my victim's delivery in a document. Even though I think I'll just need to type it in a couple times-- no-- I will check obsessively to see how many miles it has gone in the last two hours. Copy and paste is quicker than typing it out. I...
