  1. Halloween Props
    Took advantage of this glorious weather last weekend in Chicago to start on some Halloween building. Since I am about maxed out for pneumatics, thought I would work on some more motorized props. Still have to detail it out, but worked out the mechanics of a Zombie Ground Breaker using a wiper...
  2. General Halloween
    Fun night this year. Good turn out. Never ever thought I'd feature an inflatable but I guess never say never! I only grabbed it because I envisioned it in that spot. Worked well, received well. 2016 in the books!

    New Article="GOOD!" She is a young woman , writing for a local tourist magazine, but guess what? She got everything RIGHT! I am Very Happy with the work that she did. (Now if the photographer could have only taken a picture of the back of my head, instead of my old, scary face! ) Plain to...
  6. General Halloween
    Road trip coming up next week as we vacation down to the the Grand Canyon, Bryce Canyon, and potentially through Zion's national park. And I like to listen to audiobooks for these kinds of trips. This means an 8 hour drive followed by a couple 2 hour drives and a 4 - 6 hour back home...
  7. General Halloween
    We had a great season this year!! I am very happy to report that all of the new projects actually worked for the big night. I designed and animated a 17 minute loop pumpkin barbershop quartet that worked great, a full house projection with surround sound for lightning, thunder, and creepy...
  8. General Halloween
    Well, we had 119 trick or treaters, up from 83 last year and no incidents other than 1 drunk woman hanging out of a car window yelling how much she looooooved the decorations! lol The spider hedge/web arch/jumping spider combo worked well and I was getting people left and right with the remote...
  9. Product Reviews
    http://tekkytoys.com/pages/halloween2.php?productID=222 I got this for last Halloween, and if I had reviewed it last year I would have given it a good review. But the review is after this Halloween. Lunging lilly is a prop which uses a motion detector to sense someone in the area, starts...
  10. Halloween Props
    This was my complete setup for Halloween this year. Well almost, I didn't have my air shooter hooked up. It worked very well. Thanks to J-man for another great setup. My talking skull and the solenoid-PIR-and controller for the air shooter worked flawlessly. Already planning on getting my next...
  11. General Halloween
    Who watched this years episode? Did like it. Miss the Trilogy, but liked this year. The thing I liked the best is this year our Theme is 'Celebrate the Famous and Infamous' ...come as a dead person. I am coming as Freda Kahlo. I still can't believe that is who Lisa was. I keep hearing in...
  12. HauntX
    Did anyone attend this years Haunt X convention I know of few people did.. What is your thoughts on the show . Since my wife and I live here in Reno NV and also worked at the show.
  13. Halloween Props
    I have had bad experiences with wireless controls and went all wired this year. For fun I used this wireless remote (below) on a couple of less important props to see how they worked. When I posted this purchase last year somebody ask to let them know how it worked. It seemed to work fine.
  14. Halloween Props
    I bought three of the amber spotlights this year. Used two of them tonight as we were doing a light test on our display. After less than two hours, one of them stopped working. The bulb became very dim and while there is a very faint light, it obviously is defective. So it's 4 days until...
  15. Halloween Props
    I was out puttering around in the cemetery yesterday afternoon when the neighbor from across the street came over carrying a huge box. He said he happened to notice I have a few decorations out (HA! I was just wondering where to put all my skeletons!) and said he had this ghoul that has been in...
