  1. Pneumatic: Can this be made into a pneumatic prop?

    Halloween Props
    I found this chest in neighbor's trash this morning, and I was wondering if my creature dude could be made to slowly come out of the chest as the lid opens? Creature is made of heavy foam and latex, and I'd have to shave a couple inches off the rear for him to fully fit. Even then, his head...
  2. Lighting: candle help and ideas

    Halloween Props
    I recently had a conversation with a friend that works at a custom lighting company. Some of her lamps have plastic candles. She has been throwing away the extra ones. She just gave me my first batch of the leftover candles. They already have factory candle wax drips on them. They also come with...

  5. Stranger Things

    Haunted Humor
    I've recently binge watched Stranger Things 1&2, and I came with a dustin joke meme. Fans of the show may appreciate this (I hope:confused:)
  6. Aluminum soldering flux. No US vendors?

    Off-Topic Stuff
    I'm soldering longer leads to a gum stick, 40mm x 12mm x 4mm, lithium polymer, 3.7v battery, and I recently discovered that the leads coming out of the battery are aluminum, so in order to solder them, I need to be using a flux designed for aluminum. Okay, no problem so far. Online, I'm...
  7. What do you think of it?

    Off-Topic Stuff
    I recently have an idea to buy a projector enclosure for my Projector the Size is 17.8w x 5.2h x 12.6l for Christmas decoration. I have read up on enclosures from some suppliers Kinytech, Vizbox . Actually I had this idea two months ago, but my wife doesn't agree with me. As you know, after...

    Halloween Props
    Recently purchased the store display of these at Home Depot for $21 (told the cashier they were broken. Which they were, the arm brackets were broken off one of the witches two arms, so she took off 50% of the sale price) got them home to test out and the mouths don’t move, cauldron mech doesn’t...

    Hi, never posted when I signed up, so figured I would post now. Started decorating when I was a little kid at my parents house. Now 30+ years later I have a new house, and while I did some decorating at my previous house, I have been going full throttle, probably because my daughter recently...
  10. Mechanical: Convert battery prop that is sound activated to a timer

    Halloween Props
    Hi all I recently bought two props that I didn't realize were only sound activated. They turn on when I turn on the power so I am wondering if anyone has played with converting something like this to a timer activation. I've been searching but can't find anything that I can splice inline to do...
  11. Hello!

    Member Introduction
    I've been a Halloween fan since I could walk (like most people here I guess) along with horror movies, books, etc. I pleaded with my dad for years to let me open a haunt on our 30 acre farm back in the 80's but he had some reservations about me rigging my brothers and sister up on guide lines...
  12. Static: Shrunken Heads

    Halloween Props
    Hello, These are some props I've made recently. I've made a number of shrunken heads in the past, but these are my most recent works. I like how they came out. Two of them are made from polymer clay, and the one in the dome is made from papier-mache. I had a lot of fun decorating them.
  13. Static: ISO: Giant Oak tree ideas

    Halloween Props
    We recently purchased a house with a large oak tree in front. I am expanding my cemetary this year and will be using some fog machines and AtmosFX. However, I am at a lost at what to put around the tree. I personally don't like the witches or ghosts in a circle you see everywhere. Just...
  14. Fog: Chauvet 1400

    Halloween Props
    I'm looking for a new fog machine. Right now there are several vendors that have factory refurbished Chauvet 1400s with a timer for $120. The 1400 is recently discontinued. It's a great price for a pretty high capacity machine. Does anyone have one, and if so how do you like it? Thanks!
  15. Can't get access to the album photo I just added

    Site Issues and Feedback
    I added a new photo to my 2018 album (a skeleton monkey). Everything was normal during the upload process. However later when I went to go to open the Halloween Store Items - 2018 album to select the new photo's BB Code, the board software messed up. I can select older uploaded images just fine...

    Halloween Props
    Hey all, I'm finally pulling the trigger on a new fog machine this year (thinking about a Chauvet 1301) but wanted to see if anyone knows of anything new and/or better that has come out recently which I should consider instead. Thanks.
