  1. Pneumatic: Can this be made into a pneumatic prop?

    Halloween Props
    I found this chest in neighbor's trash this morning, and I was wondering if my creature dude could be made to slowly come out of the chest as the lid opens? Creature is made of heavy foam and latex, and I'd have to shave a couple inches off the rear for him to fully fit. Even then, his head...

  8. Pneumatic: Trash can trauma is done!!

    Halloween Props
    My first pneumatic is done! Complete with smoke and sound! I have 2 issues after tonight's run. 1) I need to fix the audio - the laughs are currently too far apart. 2) Too much smoke, I need to figure out how to calm that down - but right now am coming up blank. The fog in the video is from my...
