  1. Chained Werewolf - Pneumatic

    Tutorials and Step-By-Step
    Note: This is a repost of an old tutorial whose links to pictures were broken with the software update at HF. Have finally discovered the best use of pneumatic props - as a distraction! Yes, it is counter-intuitive to spend all that time and money making a pneumatic prop just to use as a...
  2. Electronic/Software: Sparking Props

    Halloween Props
    I made a prosthetic claw out of foam for a zombie walk and now I wish to make it better. I want sparks when the claw ends touch. Fright Props used to sell "Spark Gloves" that were battery operated and safe for user and others. Unfortunately they don't sell those anymore and I can't find any...
  3. Mechanical: Human Rotisserie

    Halloween Props
    So, I have my hot coals, and I have my skeleton, and I want to build a human sized rotisserie. I have seen a couple of them on here before, but I can't find them. Are there any good DIYs for a skeleton-sized rotisserie? The basic model in my head is scrap wood and PVC pipe (seems like it...

  5. Prop Showcase: Spider Attack!

    Halloween Props
    I decided to change my FCG room into a spider cave this year. I used the FCG rig to move some spiders up and down. Here is a picture before the cave was finished to show the spiders in the back. Then built a big leaper rig based off Halstaff's spider leaper. Thank you sir. ;) It turned out well...
  6. Mechanical: PVC Flying Crank Ghost Rig

    Halloween Props
    Due to time constraints last year we ended up buying an FCG from another vendor. I loved the ghost, but was not crazy about the rig so this year I decided it was time to rebuild it Spider Hill style (in PVC). I made this in a couple of hours using 2 of our Spider Joints and one of our PVC...
  7. Static: Advice on GR Gothic Curtain Tieback dupe?

    Halloween Props
    Last year Grandin Road had this fabulous skeleton-arm curtain tieback for way more than I could afford, and I resolved to find a way to make it myself! This page gives a look at how it's set up, with a magnet in the hand and one to attach on the other side. I don't understand though how the...
  8. Mechanical: Static Axworthy Ghost

    Halloween Props
    I have a dog run line I'm hoping to utilize this year as a zip line for a flying ghost. I've seen the ghosts that move along a string in stores and wondered if I might manufacture something similar. Granted it won't have the speed of a an Axworthy ghost rig, but slow and lurking is fine by me...
