  2. Minor Arduino Coding Help

    Halloween Props
    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...

  4. Realistic almost life sized skulls

    Halloween Props
    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...
  5. Electronic/Software: Our singing grim reaper

    Halloween Props
    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...
  6. What is in the Details

    General Halloween
    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...
  7. Need ideas for Best Decorated House Winner Sign

    General Halloween
    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...
  8. Retro-a-go-go Mummy GID mask

    Halloween Props
    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...

  10. HELP me find this decoration

    General Halloween
    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...
  11. Strange Things

    General Halloween
    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...
  12. Static: Rotting Head

    Halloween Props
    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...
  13. Static: Paper Mache Artists, HELP!

    Halloween Props
    The last time I made something out of paper mache was in the fourth grade, so I am beyond rusty. However, we love the look of props created with paper mache and we're going to increase the number of projects that use it going forward. But there in lies the tale. I'm the one who's going to be...

    Tutorials and Step-By-Step
    OK here is the promised tutorial on the cheap talking skull build. I'm trying to create a talking skull, that will react to any audio file you run through it, for less than $30... The first step was to cut the skull in a way to get access to the inside in a way that viewers couldn't see the...
  15. Arduino Talking Skull Project on the Cheap

    Tutorials and Step-By-Step
    Hi folks, I'm working on an arduino talking skull project for a greeter for our haunt for next year. The skull is a cast I made of a high end skull (medical grade realistic) but I rotocast it out of resin to keep the weight down. My intention is to build a skeleton greeter in a booth that is...
  16. www.HalloweenSupplyUSA.com - AVOID

    Merchant Reviews
    Very poor, very disappointing experience with www.halloweensupplyusa.com. On October 7th we ordered a Skull Trooper Halloween Costume for my 11 year old son. My son is one of the many Fortnite video game addicts in this age group. If he was allowed to, he would spend 24/7 playing. He loves...

    General Halloween
    I'm already planning my yard display for next year and I really like this lighting trick I saw on Stiltbeast Studios youtube page So I want to make a bunch of props & signs that in blue light look somewhat friendly/normal, but in red light look super scary. For example: a large sign where...

  20. Last minute suggestions for three items.

    General Halloween
    Hello! Going over the top this year (weather permitting). I have three groups of items that I am looking for quick and dirty suggestions for use: 1) A half dozen large, lightweight bats, poised for flying, not hanging. I have two tree out front, could theoretically string a ling between, hang...
