    Hi everyone, I am having an issue with my Hauntmaster Flex Ect and it's PIR trigger. Apparently the PIR has gone bad. There must be some additional circuitry involved because a straight replacement PIR doesn't close the circuit and trugger the controller. After doing some research, Most PIR's...

    I just thought I would let everyone know that Home Depot has a great prop this year. It is their Reanimated Corpse (Frankenstein's Monster) prop. My wife bought him for me a few days ago and I can't believe how well he works and how well he seems to be put together compared to some store...

    I thought all my prop building was complete a couple of weeks ago but I ended up with a final prop build for my wife. It's powered by a wiper motor and controlled by Otaku's motor controller. Anything else we think of to build goes on the 2013 list now!

    I've completed the third member of my witches coven. We started with the traditional witch stirring her cauldron, then added a second witch last year reading from her spell book with 2 axis head movement. To get a little more from the scene, I wanted the third witch to have more movement...
