    I built this Clown Entrance for a Halloween party last year. It turned out fantastic. The eyes rotate, using cheap motors I picked up from Princess Auto. I projected the image and air brushed onto plywood. I didn't build it to be self standing (but you could)....for our purpose it was...

  6. Static: Found cool parts

    Halloween Props
    So you never know what kinda parts you need for props. I got my washing machine worked on today. The shocks were bad. I had never seen any before. So before I threw the box away, I opened it. I'm sure these will come in handy one day for something I'm building. Even if I take them apart for...
  7. Love hate relationship

    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...

  9. enlarging photos to fit on large tombstones

    General Halloween
    I know there is software that allows you to specify what size object you want to make and it will break up the photo in to multiple parts so when it is all taped together it is the size you need. Unfortunately I can't remember the name of the software or find it when I googled it. Does anyone...

    I was installing some new shelving this last week and cleaning up a bit and once again, some things have to go. Up for grabs is a lot of PVC fittings and other misc parts. Some of these parts are new, some were used in our shop, and some are seconds (discolored) but they are all good usable...

    For Sale/Trade By Individuals
    Over the last 3-4 years I've purchased several animatronics from that big online store (that rhymes with Fear It), and most of them stopped working in the same season I bought them. I've been opening them up and trying to fix them, to no avail. Last year I contacted "Fear It" in hopes that I...

  17. Pneumatic: Prop Supply Sources

    Hi all, I'm new to prop building and am prepping to make a ground breaker. Before I start ordering parts, I thought it'd be a good idea to come ask the pro's here where they get there parts from (controllers, pneumatic cylinders, solenoids, etc.)? It seems to me that all the sites I've been to...
  18. Static: The Importance of Disarticulation

    Halloween Props
    You spend $50 or so for a complete skeleton, since things like ribcages and other tricky bones can be difficult to make from scratch. You want it to look realistic, so perhaps you corpse it a bit, but to truly make it look right, you will need to bite the bullet and ruthlessly tear it apart. No...
