  1. Halloween on a budget that worked great!

    Member Introduction
    Last minute decorations made cars slow down and was a hit with trick or treaters. We ran out of candy after an hours and a half in a neighborhood here in Michigan which is normally very quiet. We had over 90 families with multiple kids in tow. I created a congruent theme of a classic...
  2. Nor'easter coming up the coast this week-end...of course our party is Saturday.

    Party Ideas. Experiences and Recipes
    Whatever - we got through the snow in 2011. Just hope there isn't a lot of wind. It's still early, hopefully it'll go farther off the coast or slow down so it doesn't reach us until Sunday.
  3. 2018 Video Party Game- End of the world theme

    Party Ideas. Experiences and Recipes
    Every year I make a video game that plays during our Halloween party that guests can play whenever they want. I have it on loop on my living room tv and they can pickup a game sheet and start playing. You can use this video too if you would like for your party. Usually the winner gets a prize...

  5. Mechanical: Linear actuator

    Halloween Props
    A question for anyone with experience with these. Are they available with faster or slower speeds. Seem the ones I have seen go about 1/2 inch per second. That seems very slow. Anyone have a source for faster?
  6. 502 errors and SLOW

    Site Issues and Feedback
    The last 24 hours or so I've gotten random 502 bad gateway errors. Not every time, but enough to mention here at this point. Also since the move to the cloud servers, I've noticed the forum itself slow to connect, timing out and sometimes getting a "server too busy" response with increasing...
  7. Atmosphere Effects: Fake fire using a mister test

    Halloween Props
    So I always wanted to build one of these. I was fascinated the first time I saw one. Problem is I am not handy with anything electrical. So I kept thinking what if I hacked one of those hanging faux cauldrons. I bought one this year at spirit and immediately went to see if I could use one to...
  8. Electronic/Software: Noisy jaw servo

    Halloween Props
    Anyone have any suggestions for cutting down the noise that the jaw servo makes in talking skulls? When I slow the speed down a bit on the other servos in my 3-axis skull they are much quieter, but if I slow down the jaw servo I figure it won't be sinked up well.
  9. New Orleans theme

    Party Ideas. Experiences and Recipes
    I'm excited about the after party food for my 2016 New Orleans theme haunt. I'm thinking jambalaya, gumbo...dishes that can be slow cooked or made the night before. Any fav recipes from this cuisine?
  10. The Harvest: Unorthodox 2015

    General Halloween
    Night started with rain. That didn't slow attendance. We just crowded into the garage. As it went on, the rain stopped and it warmed just in time to start lighting things. I knew early on, this year was special as it started to fill in.
  11. Lighting: Cheapest/easiest way to do a slow blink/flash lighting effect?

    Halloween Props
    I just put a new prop in the attic window and have it front lighted but thinking I might want the light to do a slow blink like maybe a couple seconds on/couple seconds off kinda thing. What would be the cheapest/easiest way to rig such a thing up without getting into arduinos? Any of the common...
  12. Help with motor controller

    Tutorials and Step-By-Step
    Part 1 I have 2 wiper motors from Monster Guts that I'm trying to slow down. One I've used in my skeleton leerer for a few years and another I bought awhile back along with their controller to use for a cauldron creep. Both motors also were bought with the quick connect. Never got around to...
  13. wiper motors

    Tutorials and Step-By-Step
    is there simple wiring diagrams for wiper motors to make them go slow?
  14. I have to really get used to this website..

    General Halloween

  15. Mechanical: Animated Watchman Prototype

    Halloween Props
    This is something I have been messing around with for the last month or so. I finally had a proper waist plate machined so I could build a completed unit. It is powered by a wiper motor and a 12 volt 5 amp power supply running through a PWM to slow things down. I am still doing a bit of testing...

    Halloween Props
    We've been open for a few days now. Finally got around to making a video. It's been a hectic time, I wish it could slow down to allow me to enjoy it a bit more. Anyway here's the video:
