    Time out for some humor re: "It looked a lot bigger in the photo." I found a deal on the Scarabelle Clown Puppet and while waiting for delivery I fetched a wiper motor from storage and was preparing to make a beefy crank ghost type frame to animate the life size clown puppet. Opps. My bad. I...

  6. Halloween Props
    This is a vintage stick puppet most likely from the 1970's. I believe it originally came from an old puppeteer. I think it is supposed to be like a Punch and Judy puppet, but does not have the nose they normally have. This thing is even more creepy that it has 2 right hands. lol. Go ahead, look...

    I'm trying to make a zombie attack puppet for this year (a zombie on my side/back while I control it's head). I've seen people using pool noodles for stuffing the arms and legs but I need to make it posable when I put it on. I've made PVC mannequins with Spider Hill joints for static display...

    In my Halloween Dark Ride, I have a dungeon/castle type wall that has a large oval mirror that I use for my Magic Mirror scene (First video below). This was originally accomplished by using the puppet created by ImaginEERIEing. This particular puppet worked well but I did not use it as a...

    Ive been playing around with a motion capture software called Adobe Character Animator. It allows you to create a puppet in Photoshop or Illustrator then import into character animator. If you assign all the parameters correctly it will sync with you facial features. You can then record and...

    I was given a prop a few years ago that I recently rediscovered. It was a tombstone with a corpse inside that was supposed to be able to pop out. The friend who gave it to me said they could never get it to work right. I took it apart and looked it all over, and decided the corpse & tombstones...

    I just saw the VFX Creative Studio attack zombie Sally puppet....OMG this thing is soooo cool. Has anyone seen a DIY on how to make one of these as $1500.00 is WAY out of my price range. They have the sound system for 250.00 which I could get but would like some advice on the actual puppet...

    I got this idea off the web, but cannot remember where. This was a big hit for our haunt "Scare Dare" last year. My daughter wore it and said that at least 4 guests rolled on the ground because it scared them so bad. To see it in action go to www.haunthobbyist.com and click on 2014. The...

    This is a vintage stick puppet clown. This is the thing that creepy things have nightmares about. :D Even more unusual that he has 2 right hands. Ironically enough, someone made this and probably thought, I am going to use this to entertain children.:eek: I made some of the pics to look like old...

    My husband and I make puppets together. We were trying to make a cute little scarecrow puppet, but it ended up being a bit too creepy. I saw some potential, and decided to pour my "Oh no, Halloween is over!" energy into making videos with it. Here's the one I recorded today:
  20. REQUEST FOR TUTURIALS GO HERE
    I built the puppet master prop according to two different ones on this site. Now that I have the wiper motor hooked up, a large washer with three holes drilled and the fishing line run, the wires get tangled. I'm not sure what I did wrong since they look like the others on the site. I ran the...
