  5. So - this is what I did last year, mostly

    General Halloween
    A visitor decided to YouTube part of my yard. Too bad the sound isn't captured - large speakers playing haunting music and the lights activate in accordance with the sounds. The vid omits the graveyard section and some props that hide in the bushes and move and do stuff when people come by...

  7. Static: Where is the best place to get poseable skeletons?

    Halloween Props
    I'm just finishing my "Evil scientist" lab and am getting ready to move on to the skeletons I'll need. As this is the first year since contracting the Halloween bug I'm in the dark over the best source for skeletons. Michaels had theirs on sale for $48. I've seen them from ~$40 to $100+. What...

  9. Mechanical: Leering Skelly 2017

    Halloween Props
    Just finished up a really simple Leering Skelly. Saw these cedar half barrels at Menards for $22 with rebate and had to make something with it. I used the vinegar-water-steel wool-instant coffee mixture to weather the barrel. This is a typical Pose-N-Stay Skelly, the spine is really thin so I...
  10. Mechanical: Skelly Swing

    Halloween Props
    Taking advantage of some great weather and already working on props for next year. Came up with a very simple design for a Skelly Swing using a wiper motor and PWM speed control. Dialed down the speed to about 22 rpm. The motor is mounted directly on the swing mech so everything is one assembly...

  12. Static: Pose and stay Skelly ideas?

    Halloween Props
    I walked into Goodwill right as the clerk put a brand new pose and stay skelly on display. Ten bucks! Yippee!!! But I've been staring at it wondering what to do with it. I want creative, I want wow. What have you all done to your skellys?
  13. Weathered skeleton

    General Halloween
    Hi guys this is my fist attempt at weathering/ antiqueing a skelly. I used a rite aid skelly with light up eyes and the paint was an old brown and some shellac. Tell we what you think.
  14. Mechanical: Skeleton Phone

    Halloween Props
    I got the most awesome prop today! It's called The Skeleton Phone! It looks like an old phone and when you click on one of the button-thingies it rings. You pick it up and it says..."I know who you are...", "I'm coming for you...", "I'll take you beyond the grave" or another bone-rattlingly...

  17. Static: My First Corpsed Skelly

    Halloween Props
    Ok, so first attempt at corpsing a skelly. I started with a Wally I have from a few years ago ($40 at walgreens), and used the Stiltbeast method Its not quite done yet, but I'm liking the effect so far. Didn't take too many pictures as I was going through the process, but best advice: TAKE...

    Halloween Props
    This oversized and fairly accurate blow mold skellie was given to us by one of our neighbors at the end of the haunt last year, she is about 5 foot 6.:D:D I decided to bind her up and shroud her and then shred the shroud and stain it like she had been dug up. Bone-ita by Don and Monica Riney...

    For Sale/Trade By Individuals
    I have two Gemmy Window Leechers for sale. This is an older Gemmy prop about 9'' x 5" with plastic faces and cloth "hood". From what I can gather they came out in 2008. They have only been used on two Halloween nights when I would put them in the window of my car while parked in the driveway...
