Hi all!! This is my first post on here so go easy. But here’s my first homemade animatronic! It’s a mad scientist (much like the Gemmy Dr Shivers) that I made out of a dancing Santa with a broken neck! I use a picoboo controller to make him tick, and a cb radio speaker for sound! His mouth and body still move great! Please Leave any questions that you may have down below!

Very cool!
The mask you used has a high creep factor.

A dancing santa wearing a well aged dead pig mask i once saw still gives me the creeps.

I went the other way, sorta,
years back a buddy alerted me to a doc shivers put to the curb for trash,
He was in bad shape, missing parts, brain board trashed, smelled of cat whizz,

I wanted a bubba gein type but missed that mark,

Here is "in the works"

I removed the shivers mask and went at the under structure, hacked the eye mechanism and used a couple batteries to just move the eyes side to side and light up, a work in progress,
Perhaps ill do more, since this pic i added chains belts and knives etc,
Best part all free.

Cheers
