    Member Introduction

  3. Static: DIY large static spider

    Halloween Props
    Ok I am currently working on ideas for my large spider. I already have a plan for the frame of it but am trying to figure out how to build its body. One idea I had was to use plastic cups and connect them together then use great stuff to fill in the gaps and make it more solid. I'm going for a...
  4. Prop Showcase: Bat Signal so Jim Gordan can call Batman

    Halloween Props
    I decided I wanted to shift my theme from Steampunk to Gotham Steampunk. That means you have to have a way to call Batman right? Haha
  5. Slow start to 2017 Gotham themed haunt

    General Halloween
    UPDATE 2017 PICS Back to the 2016 stuff and build up to 2017. Lots of pics in the thread........ So I'm just checking in to see what everyone is up to this year. I think the fact that Halloween is on a Tuesday has far from sparked excitement for me this year. I have a couple new...
  6. Pneumatic: Alien steampunk spider

    Halloween Props
    Well we are in the design stages of our next big project. We are making a Steampunk spider (in the spirit of the spider from Will Smith's Wild Wild West), except we will have an Alien driver. The hope is that we can get it to raise and lower, and the legs would be passive movements (attached to...

  8. 2015 Yardhaunt, Phase 2 underway

    General Halloween
    Last year (2014) I was able to pretty much finish "phase 1" of our yardhaunt! A few small details didn't get done but for the most part I got the big pieces finished. We are going with a steampunk theme. There is a clocktower, storefront, boiler and crates. Phase 2 will aim to add...
  9. Static: Steampunk Steam Pistol

    Halloween Props
    I've always wanted to try my hand at a steampunk gun. Since I have a huge box full or random parts I decided to give it a go. Always remember to point the steam stack away from your person when in use. All told it probably cost 2 dollars in material if that.
  10. 'Steampool'

    Halloween Costume Ideas
    Son wanted to do something a little different for megacon which is difficult because really it has all been done. With that in mind, we did a steampunk Deadpool. .He had a lot of pictures taken of him with a few shouting out steampool! Hence the name. Not much of a costumer but had fun with this...
  11. Other: Steampunk DC volt panel meters

    Halloween Props
    Has anyone ever used real display panel meters (see attached pic) to work randomly (needle moving back and forth)? I want to be able to hook a lot of these up to a control display box together and would like them to do something. Any help would be appreciated! Thanks
  12. Other My steampunk clock: "Chronos"

    Halloween Crafts
    Hi All, Facebook has deleted a bunch of images I had used in many of my posts, sorry about that. Here are some pictures of my latest project "Chronos". It's a working clock, has LED lighting and I think it would look great in my mad doctor's lab. Hope you like it.
  13. Lighting: Steampunk Mysterious Power Source

    Halloween Props
    I just tried out something, and the visual effect is cool enough that I thought someone else might get some use out of it before tomorrow is done. No time to post pictures tonight, too much to build still. (sorry) But I hope you find it useful. ------------------------------- Steampunk...

    Hi all, I've been dabbling a bit with steampunk for a little while. I'm putting the final touches on this gas mask. Hope you like it!
  16. Other: Inspiration: Adam Savage's Hellboy Mecha Glove

    Halloween Props
    This is insane. And I thought carving a tombstone was a big time investment. Some folks may poo-poo this a bit because he's got a ton of resources and talent at his command, but his commitment is impressive, and it still sounds like the majority of it he did himself (I also admire the ability...
  17. Prop Showcase: Hydrotherapy - MadCity Haunt June 2014 Prop

    Halloween Props
    Hi guys, here is the new prop I built this month for the Haunt Nation Magazine “Hacked” contest. The goal of the contest was to take 8 - 10 pre-determined items and build them into a prop. The items included PVC pipe, paper towel roll, string, hot glue, aluminum foil, great stuff, pool noodle...
  18. Pirate Haunt turned Steampunk?

    General Halloween
    Has anyone ever done a steampunk pirate haunt? We are a pirate haunt that needs something new, yet we have too much money wrapped up to be switching themes. So I am looking for a new twist on the pirates. Unfortunately I have very few ideas how to convert over other than adding gears, clockworks...
  19. Mechanical: Question about making smoking props

    Halloween Props
    Anyone out there have experience making props that smoke? Not props like a dragon that could use a regular fogger - but props like handguns or backpacks. Basically, I was considering how to make steampunk stuff more "steamy" by adding smoke such as might come from a coal furnace - or steam from...
  20. And now something completely different.

    Halloween Music
    Rather than my usual instrumental or spoken-word route, I wrote this little gothic metal song about a mad scientist and his creation. I call it Mechanical Heart.
