  1. Static: Foldable coffin ??

    Halloween Props
    Work is about to get ugly for me so I need to start my decorative planning pretty quickly. I have limited storage room for any newer items so I am trying to make things as tiny as possible. As the title says, I am thinking about a foldable coffin. If I were to build one (not for actual human...
  2. Prop Showcase: Need Ideas on my Atmos FX Garage door

    Halloween Props
    This year Im adding a projector in the garage to display the bone chillers video fx. My projector displays from top to bottom very well but is short on the sides.

  3. Press break, anyone?

    Off-Topic Stuff
    I'm in need of two pieces of aluminum, 18" x 4". Each needs two bends near one of its long dimension, at 7/16" and 13/16". So, basically a "J". The pieces will be used to rebuild the failing, wooden sides of a silverware drawer in the kitchen whose wood has been whittled away over the years...
  4. Static: Question about size of mausoleum for FCG?

    Halloween Props
    I am already planning builds for next Halloween and one of the things I would like to build is a mausoleum with a flying crank ghost. My question is what is a good size for a FCG mausoleum?

  6. Electronic/Software: Anyone have the Skeleton Bedtime Story by Total Home FX?

    Halloween Props
    Does anyone have the Total Home FX Skeleton Bedtime Story? I can't find any preview of it longer than a few seconds. It looks like decent digital decoration, and I'm thinking of add it to my haunted portrait. However, my TV is in a vertical configuration, so it looks like it's a portrait, and...
  7. Atmosphere Effects: Stabilizing Project on it's side

    Halloween Props
    I had this problem last year, probably going to have it again. How does everyone keep your projector stable? I have two in the garage that need to go vertical and I have a hell of a time getting them to sit on their sides. The slightest movement will of course mess them up. I wish you could...
  8. Atmosphere Effects: Any risks to having a projector on its side?

    Halloween Props
    I'm going to be projecting some of the AtmosFX vertical scenes this year using a couple of Hitachi CP-X2010 projectors and some Micca media players. There doesn't appear to be any way to rotate the movies on either the Micca or the projectors, so I'm planning on just setting the projectors on...

  10. Best way to attach tabelcloths to kitchen side?

    Party Ideas. Experiences and Recipes
    I'm struggling a bit! I want to use black plastic tablecloths to cover my kitchen sides. But, obviously the kitchen sides go up to the wall, so it's not possible to drape the cloth down the back. I've used blutack in the past but I remember it being very hit and miss and half of them falling...

  13. Static: Styrofoam Toe-pincher Coffin

    Halloween Props
    I made a toe-pincher coffin out of 1” extruded Styrofoam for my outdoor display. This wasn’t my design, so thanks to those from who I borrowed the idea, especially Spooky Blue. I did take a few liberties with the design, however. It was sized to fit a Costco skeleton, and used a little...

  15. Static: Sliding top tomb project

    Here is the start to my sliding top tomb project. I used a Christmas deer motor I got online for the movement, it took a little fab work to make the extender arm, which is just a piece of stock alluminum I got from Menards. The rest is simply a 2x2 frame, with 1 1/2 pink foam sides. I made...
