    Halloween Props
    I have 4 Miccas, different brands but the same plug-ins because I am using them for older projectors.

  6. Electronic/Software: Budget Motion detector with timer? Audio?

    Halloween Props
    Don't want to buy an expensive control box. I have bought a few outdoor motion lights before and wired them to plug in the wall, using the light sockets to plug props. But is there another way, just as cheap, to have a motion detection device and an accurate timer? The motion light I made...

  9. Planet Coaster Halloween!!!

    General Halloween
    I have been obsessed with planet Coaster for almost a year now. I originally got it because I was sad I had to take Halloween down and it sure did the trick a treat! It's a theme park simulation game and a large part of the community just builds stuff like scenery or ride skins in sandbox mode...
  10. Electronic/Software: Help with Epitaph name for crypt with peering eye?

    Halloween Props
    I have an obelisk stone with a large base. The base is cracked and there is an eye peering out. I wanted to think of a family name to etch vertically in the obelisk. I don't believe in wasting any opportunity for an easter egg or humor in any prop, so just "RIP" won't do. Some things I spinning...

  12. Graveyard Ambience

    Halloween Music
    I've created an ambient soundtrack for our graveyard this year that has some material pulled from our main soundtrack. It has some elements that might not fit your theme completely but it does have some angry wind, siren-like witches beckoning, and some ghost-ish stuff, and a ridiculous number...

  18. Help! Fat Guy Storyteller

    Halloween Costume Ideas
    So, I'm pretty huge into Halloween, but honestly, I've ever been that big into costuming. As a 6' 4" 320 lb guy, I don't quite fit the mold of many of the characters I find scary/fascinating. However, the school I'm working at is doing a Halloween storytelling event, and I'm going to be doing a...

I have recorded my sound and put it on a thumb drive. I then put it in a player and selected...
