Hey everyone, just an update on our monster box. We finally got the mechanics working right and now it's just some painting, timing, and finding a werewolf mask (no one seems to sell them in this city lol), and it will be ready for the big night. Post your comments good or bad and let me know what you think :D

There are too many really cool props coming out, almost makes me feel ashamed of this now lol. No not ashamed but definitely inspired for next year. Good work everyone I can't wait until Nov 1 to see how everyone's haunts turned out :D

I think that's a great MIB! How are you going to use the mask? Will you attach it to the lid so it looks like his head is pushing the lid up?

Looks great and I'm sure it will be a hit on the big night. Unfortunately, I have no clue what any of that stuff is from the first two pics.

Thanks Dark lord, I'm just glad I can finally get into prop building and especially glad I found this site, I've gotten a lot of good help from good people.

Thanks Phil that is a 12V linear actuator (or more commonly a 12V ram) I only used it because my Dad happened to have one in his shop, next year I'm going all pneumatic as the actuators are about 5 - 6 times more expensive.

We're going to attach a stuffed mask with ping pong led lit eyes (hopefully if I can ever find some bloody ping pong balls < a bunch of the kids around here just discovered beer pong). We're also going to put a hand in and make it look like the hand is pushing the lid up that way it looks better and hides the mechanics that I'm so proud of lol.

Looks great and I'm sure it will be a hit on the big night. Unfortunately, I have no clue what any of that stuff is from the first two pics.
Thanks, I hope it will be! I explained the ram, the other things are a wiper motor, a relay (the clear little box on the side), a timer ( the big yellow box on the wall) and the power supply for the 12V devices.

Awesome , Maybe put a fogger in instead of a mask?
Not this year unfortunately, but if all goes well this will turn into a Werewolf in a box next year and will have a fogger that will fill the box and come out the wolfs nostrils.

Thanks for the comments everyone, now it's time to go to the drawing board for a PVC dummy I want to make I'm running out of time lol.
