  1. Halloween Props
    I have an idea for a safety coffin which is one of those graves with the bell on top in case someone is buried alive by mistake. I am thinking about how to make the bell ring. I know there are those with more electrical knowledge so I am looking for ideas. In general I came up with a couple of...

    Hi Guys, I thought I would share with you all my grand plans for some cemetery entry gates that I plan on building for this years display, along with some other things. I have had the guys in the metal shop at work(It pays to have a good boss) who have made me up some metal frames for...
  3. Halloween Props
    Hi All, I have an idea for a floating candelabra that I think will look great in our haunt if I can pull it off. Which is why my first step is coming here and asking you all what you think the best approach might be. I am thinking of taking my little plastic candelabra and turning it into a...

    Happened to notice that Harbor Freight (online and instore) has a big sale going on. Website has a 25% off one item Super Coupon, and another 20% off one item Coupon. Both say 1 coupon per customer per day however, so Sat and Sun. Not sure if stores will be open Easter Sunday so call first...

    I am dancing with delight! Our mermaid skeleton came today--well, yesterday--it's late, and I am absolutely happy. I was worried that she would be a cheap piece of junk, but no. She is beautiful, articulated, and a sort of weird grayish color that rather suits a sea creature. We got her from...
  6. REQUEST FOR TUTURIALS GO HERE
    I want to make a ouija board where people can stand in front of it and ask it a question, and perhaps have someone on the underside/hidden under the table and be able to move the little pointer around to talk back to them. I feel like this can be done with magnets perhaps or something but I have...

  8. Midwest Haunters Convention
    I just saw that the Midwest Haunters Convention is going to be in Chicago this year, this should be an interesting change? The Pre-convention bus tours will be different! I just wonder how people are going to react, I have a feeling some are going to like the move while others are going to...

  13. Halloween Props
    Here's my pirate haunt so far. Need to add the audio to my talking skeletons and parrot and to my drinking pirate out in the yard, but overall I'm happy with the results. The blue LED lights always look really harsh in the video, but I think I need to make some adjustments on them regardless. My...
  14. General Halloween
    I am developing a love hate relationship with animatronics.. they charge all the money for them but seems some are crap and some have a little longevity to them but you may only get a few seasons from them. With no parts available you're left scrounging for a used one to pillage for parts at...
  15. General Halloween
    Things are starting to ramp up. As some of you know, I maintain a pumpkin patch in my backyard. This year I am really emphasizing my pumpkin display near my front door. I pretty much have my pumpkins set-up, now I just need to scary it up a little with lights and spiders. My goal is to get this...

    My curtains want to bounce 1/2 open. I have taken the gearbox off, removed the motor and inspected the "wandering gear". Mine appears to be stationary. I even tried to move it with a small screwdriver...no luck. Any ideas. I love the Zultan and do not wish to tie the curtains back. Sincerely, Dave

    Hello, I recently purchased a Helga the fortune teller MR124150 off a local for sale forum. The prop is complete but the previous owner removed the plug in wiring pins from the circuit board to disassemble for storage. I was curious if anyone has this prop and can take a picture of the circuit...

  20. Halloween Props
    I have this 1/2 mannequin that I have no idea what to do with. Last year I sat it in a chair in clothes. So it just looked like an headless guy. It was boring. Does anyone have a better idea of what I could maybe do with it? The arms stay behind its back. I can move them forwards if it has a...
