Put a head or some floating brains in it. Run some EL lighting wire to create a life support system. Or, put an arm bone, add some flesh to it and then attach Piranha fish and run air out where they are feeding.
It was nothing really fancy but several years ago, I made a sculpey brain for a party and put it in my old tank, along with a doll eye (would've used two, but I'd misplaced the other one). Added some highlighter dye to the water and put a blacklight in the fixture.
The brain had two screws in the "temples", to which copper wire was attached (there were also short bits in the end of the medulla oblongata). The wire attached to a thin wooden bar placed under the light fixture, suspending the brain midway in the tank. Air trapped in the doll eye and the natural rigidity of the tubing made the eye tend to float. A long air stone was placed in the bottom to provide "oxygen" (and the circulating water from that and the filter in back made the eye tend to bob around randomly a bit)
Nowadays I'd do something more elaborate, possibly using 3d printed parts (i.e. trim on the tank, mad scientist widgets, etc.) I still have the brain and eyes, but I'd have to get a new tank (or use one of those giant cheese puff containers like some people do)
Has anyone here ever added a timed remote to a Chauvet Hurricane 700? I whimsically purchased a $30 machine but didn’t realize that it only had a manual remote button that is hardwired to the machine. Oops! I need to add a timer if I can.
If I open the machine, it looks like I can disconnect...
Is there a way to make this fog machine shoot fog on its own? Is there a special controller you can buy that does it for you? Is there a way to modify the controller itself? I’m open to almost any suggestions. I just got it at a Walmart today. It has skeleton hands on the side if that helps.
So this year I am decorating 2 yards. Mine and my neighbors. Still have some more things to put out and set up, but they are starting to come together. I didn't realize how difficult it was going to be to decorate 2 yards and next year I plan on decorating 3. I must be mad, totally out of my...
My idea was simple: get some fabric, some manniquins, and some fabric stiffener. Make "ghost" robes. put them in my yard, hilarity ensues.
I picked up some satin/polyester fabric... fairly cheap and light. A robe took about 7-8 feet of fabric, 6 feet wide. I used a 16oz bottle of Alleene's...
