    Hello haunters! For my first build of 2021 I made this skull lantern and I attempted to make a video out of the process. I had fun doing this, I hope it’s enjoyable and I would love feedback!

    I've just started working on writing software to use a Raspberry Pi an an audio servo controller to control the jaw of a skull (filling the role otherwise filled by a Scary Terry type board, or Jawduino or Wee Little Talker). The code will be released as free open source once I've got the...

    Hi folks, I'm trying to write Arduino code for essentially a 3-Axis skull. I followed the "Jawduino" build from ButtonBanger.com but I tweaked it to run from a PIR sensor. Now I'm trying to add extra servo sequences (just random motions), but I'm having an issue running the servos at the same...

    Best source, without having to do a lot of modifications, painting, etc.? Something other than styrofoam...ideally a resin mold or something similar. I want something that I can put in this gargoyle's hands in place of the orb...

    This is quite an old test pattern we made to test the motion and audio syncing for our 3-axis skull. There's a custom PCB running the 4 servos inside the head and a VB6 program which plays the sound and sends commands to the PCB over RS485. We took plenty of pictures of the build process Grim...

    Some say God is in the details. Others say it's the Devil. Obviously it's neither; in fact it's a skull... What you are seeing is a pumpkin leaf that has been partially eaten by snails then sun bleached white as it has decayed. The images have not been manipulated, color corrected or modified...

    Hi Everyone, Our subdivision has a contest for the best Halloween house display. Our house did win last year and I wanted to make a sign that could travel from house to house each year for the winner. I am thinking of making something out of wood so it'll last and that is either an easel style...

    A little while back I clicked on a thread someone had posted looking for a large (like 3-5 foot) skull mask. While doing a search to help out (think someone else posted about Retro-a-Go-Go in the thread) I ended up at Retro-a-Go-Go's website. Had been on it sometime back for a tiki retro item I...

    I am trying to locate LARGE skeleton masks for my outdoor decorations. Just plain skull fronts, like you would wear as a face mask. Except much bigger, around 3 or so feet. Something like this: Color doesn't matter, as it will be painted. I was really hoping to find this in a thin...

    I went on an outing yesterday too a local wilderness area so that I could collect materials for my haunt display. As I was searching for the perfectly twisted branches I came across something rather disturbing. A set of teeth protruding through the leaves. As I cleared away the debris I...

    I made a rotting head using the shop towel and latex corpsing method. Figured I should make yet another tutorial video while I was at it. I'm going to make a second, even more rotted head that will be missing the lower jaw. Both of mine will be impaled on a stick or stake, but you can make them...
