I know it aint pretty ......but after the season I will remake the frame from aluminum..............but it took alot of tweeking to get it where it is now ....................first i put the motor at the back .(thats what I saw in some tutorials ...............but that made the ghost just go up and down and didnt really bring herself up like the good ones I had seen ..............so movingthe motor to the middle of the eyelets made all the difference............I played with the length of the line to make it look like its pulling itself up and Im happy with what I have..........again Ive added some cloth to make it taller and Ive trimmed off the bundled up cloth for her hair and she looks good.............a little advise for the first timer is dont use florocarbon fishing line ....it glows in the dark ..............try to use a braided fishing line ........its stronger and doesnt show up under the black light..............enjoy all

The devil is in the details, ain't it? She's loverly, ooggieman! Creepy but compelling...

FYI: my FCG rig is mostly wood too, and this will make 4 years? It ain't broke, and I ain't fixing it!

i gotta agree with you Oogie...

for some reason the Phantasmechanics tutorial was mind bending for me (which, I now understand shouldn't have been), but Dr. Kreepy's tutorial dumbed it down enough for me (no offense to anyone including Dr. Kreepy, much offense intended for me)....

I hope my fcg turns out as good as yours, it's been done for a while now, but other props have prevented me from testing it out....

By the way, what kind of UV lighting do you have on that? It's spectacular!
