used idea for making a jeeper creeper prop. coming out well except for wings. used beige shower curtain for wing material looks good but when set up wind really catches wings. this is an outdoor prop. wondering about using tinted cheesecloth for wing material as air will flow through better. any feedback will help. prop as is would be great indoors though

I'd imagine the cheesecloth would help but would still pickup some wind. Up here in North Texas I have problems with high winds as well coming off the plains. My personal approach is now my building mantra "Over engineer or Over it goes.". All my props are built to take a beating and I stake em in the ground as deep as I can go without fearing I hit a buried cable.

For instance I got one of those 5' 5" obelisk monuments made from foam. It's hollow inside so I got a long metal pipe I had scrap around the garage and I stake it like 2 feet in the ground. It's still like 3 feet sticking out so I just pass it inside the monument center and at worst all it does is shift around on the ground a bit.

My new cauldron creep is also getting his support tubes staked because I know from just looking at em if I don't he'll be down the street stirring his stick in someones sun roof.
