    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...

    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.

    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...

    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?

    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...

    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.

    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?
  8. 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.
  9. 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...

    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...

    is there simple wiring diagrams for wiper motors to make them go slow?

    I love it! I'm just slow at getting around on here! lol -Mrs. Krueger :D

    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...

    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:

    I am new here, but am a Halloween junky. I put up a graveyard along the road, on either side of my driveway, ON OCT 1st. School buses slow down so the kids can see. Only 17 days till it goes up. :D
