  1. Mechanical: Shaking Box

    Halloween Props
    Okay, I have a really big box. It is cardboard, but I could dress it up a little. It is heavy and thick and sits on a pallet. Dimensions are probably 3.5x3.5 and 5.5ft tall. What is the easiest way to make it shake with a 'do not open, dangerous animal inside' type of vibe? (In my head it...

  4. Electronic/Software: Audio for random props, media player?

    Halloween Props
    For those who have multiple sounds coming from multiple props, what are you doing? Not talking about custom programming all hooked up to computer, etc. Just want to add sound to 2-3 props and have the speaker right by that prop. For example my rocking chair that moves, I want to have a speaker...

  6. Starting to freak out already!

    General Halloween
    That darn "35 Days" sign up there isn't helping any! Friday is my Spawn's birthday. I always start to set up the cemetery the day after. However, she is turning 21. This means Thursday night at midnight, the hubby & I will be taking her out for her first "legal" adult beverage. Friday...
  7. Random ambient and sound effect player software

    Halloween Music
    Once upon a time I had a software audio player that let you give it a list of effects and a list of ambient files and it would play them. Some of the settings let you randomize the time between, left/right fade, volume, etc. I have not been able to find it again. Anyone here recall something...
  8. 502 errors and SLOW

    Site Issues and Feedback
    The last 24 hours or so I've gotten random 502 bad gateway errors. Not every time, but enough to mention here at this point. Also since the move to the cloud servers, I've noticed the forum itself slow to connect, timing out and sometimes getting a "server too busy" response with increasing...

    Halloween Props
    Hi - I done some taxidermy on a pair of crows wings last year, but I don't know how to make use of them. They are just a little too large for a mask and too small for my back - anyone got any good / random ideas? Please note in the picture they look attached but they are separate. thank you

  11. Other: Haunted House general advice

    Halloween Props
    Stupid questions follow! My main question is if you've got a nifty little garage or porch haunt do you advertise it? Do you only have it running on the night of Halloween or do you open it in the evening for a few nights or even a few weeks? Do you just wait until someone shows up at the front...
  12. Hello from Canada!

    Member Introduction
    Hello everybody! I'm just a random guy who is completely obsessed with Halloween and horror things, especially with horror movies. I'm also the worst at giving an introduction for myself. I love seeing all of the costumes that people make, even though I suck at being crafty. Plus, I love...
  13. Projections, orginal ideas, random thoughts

    General Halloween
    This ia a random thoughts thread: I was just going through Camsauce's thread on his horse projection. He did a great job on the projection. In the thread, Mr Nightmare commented: "Soon, an entire Haunt will be a projection, which will make a easy set up and take down! " Do you think that is...

  15. Static: Random 12v power supply

    Halloween Props
    Hi everyone. I am looking for help with a prop I am making at the moment. It is a small hand operated morse code/telegraph machine. My question is how to make the unit move up and down in a random way, to simulate the original action, as discreetly as possible. My initial thinking was to...
  16. Black Mirror - twilight zoneish fun.

    Horror Discussion
    Black Mirror http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2085059/ Stumbled onto this on Netflix last night. The pilot was SO DAMN BRITISH they almost lost me. Found the whole idea rather silly. Maybe I just don't get the whole fascination with the royal family or something, whatever. If the second...

  19. Make your own eviltron?

    For those who may not know, thinkgeek.com had a device called the eviltron. Small unit that would play eerie sounds at random. It had a magnet so you could put it anywhere. Have not been able to find them, but wondered if anyone knew how to, or where to find instructions on making something...

    These were dropped off at my house by some random neighbor...(I have become "that house")...and I don't know what to do with them.
