I started with this....



added a foam skull, some foam feet and some mesh material (from an old bed canopy)


threw on some web..and like a dummy turned the camera side ways not thinking that I couldnt rotate a video :( anyway.. you get the general idea. Im not happy with the way the web turned out, I'll probably re-web it (is that a word?) but for the most part Im happy with the results. Oh, its sound activated :)

WOW!!!!! I'm working on one of these for this year, but mine is nothing like that yet. What kind of ghost is that to start with and where did you get it??? I NEED one of those. How much was it? LOL. And finally, if I send you money, can you get me one of those? :D

Is that the flying ghost thing? How did you get it to wiggle instead of fly?

thanks everyone :)
yes its the ghost that moves, Its a totally ghoul flying ghost I got it a couple yrs ago at Kmart ($15) It flew back n forth on a 50 ft string wiggling his arms saying 'booooo' His wiggling arms were just wire so I bent them down, the string I cut and tied a knot so he couldnt 'fly' anywhere then just wrapped him up. :) Oh I left a hole in the back so I could get to the on/off switch and the battery compartment.

VERY COOL!

I bought three of those ghosts from "Thingsyouneverknew existed". I knew they could be modified into something neat. The prop runs back and forth on a black rope, like a cheap Axworthy. It has two settings, one that has a moaning sound that I thought was cheesy, but my kids thought it was scary. I plan to make them into the style of the crank ghosts with cheescloth and blacklight.

The ghost covering can easily be removed. There is a small head form and wire arms (similar to a crank ghost).

Here is the link, it comes with a video. They are on sale now and the shipping is very cheap.

thanks Pumpkin Princess, I looked online but couldnt find them anywhere. The 'boooooo' sounds are kinda cheesy but it also has a silent setting which is perfect for me.

WOW that is awesome! I love the fact that it wiggles.. im gonna keep a lookout for some of those ghost..
I have a spider victim i did last year and it has a disco ball motor on the top that spins it around and the huge black widow just has a couple dowls sticking out of it with webbing on it...
So when the victim spins it looks like the spider is throwing on web.
Looks cool but If I can add this great idea to it it would be even better....
Thanks for the info...

Oh and sorry for the clutter in the background, I cant stay on one project for too long, i get side tracked and try to do 30 things at once....
