    Halloween Props
    It's been a long time since I've posted here, but wanted to share my haunted truck from this year. It still could use a lot of improvement, but it was pretty popular. Sorry the sound isn't very good as it was recored on a phone. Also, the action doesn't really start until about 11 seconds in.

    Halloween Props
    On an earlier thread I asked if anyone knew how to make the sound activated Spirt Halloween Graveyard Lanterns stay constantly lit instead of the momenary light after being activated by sound.

    I posted this in the Props forum a couple of days ago. This may be a better place for it... I made a bunch of graveyard fence and ended up having three sections extra.

    I’ve procrastinated way too long! Our Halloween party is Friday so time to get to work on hubby’s costume: I did find a wide-striped red and white satin online but it was a minimum 5-yard order and by the time shipping was added, it was going to be around $75. The blue fabric with stars or...
  15. Hey inflatable people. Questions

    Off-Topic Stuff
    Putting this here as I've just bought my first inflatables and have questions. While they are "halloween" inflatables, we're going to be using them for Christmas, so I didn't want to clutter the general thread. 1: Can you modify inflatables? We'd like to add santa hats, for instance, if...

  18. Mechanical: Human Rotisserie

    Halloween Props
    So, I have my hot coals, and I have my skeleton, and I want to build a human sized rotisserie. I have seen a couple of them on here before, but I can't find them. Are there any good DIYs for a skeleton-sized rotisserie? The basic model in my head is scrap wood and PVC pipe (seems like it...
