I'd like to use a windshield wiper motor. I don't really care how it moves just that it moves in some way. Thanks!
Simple, but effective. Is he waterproof or do you have to take him in wet weather? Never the less , I like the use of an oscillating fan.I did up a variation on that exact werewolf design but used a floor stand oscillating fan. With mine the whole upper torso moves along with the head. Positioning the fan lower down reduces the heat build up from the mask. It also helps I left it open at the bottom since I position him behind some bushes so you wouldn't see his legs any-ways. Here's the link...

ehh...most definatley gonna have to make one!! cant wait...Thanks! I wouldn't say he's waterproof but I had him out one full night in pretty steady drizzle with no ill effects. If he got too wet I would think the additional weight would put extra strain on the motor and maybe burn it out. In any event I only put him out Halloween night and then back to the basement for another year.
Here's a short video showing the motion...
