  1. Technological Terror
    I have no clue where to start. I was directed to this website while doing a search. I can no longer find the thread I was reading. I want to make a walker (adult) shake. I noticed someone posted about buying a motor from Michaels and attaching some weights. Anyone know if this might work for my...

    I have had a few that ended up being such a headache. By some of the photos I have seen some of you guys are so talented. So imaginative. Also what was the first prop you made? Looking back now would you have done it differently? BTW I am new. HI everyone

    One of the questions I get asked most is how to smooth the homemade paper clay that I use for building Halloween Props. This video demonstrates the method I use to achieve a smooth surface.

    Hi everyone! I'm uncomfortable posting on forums because I know there are rules and I'm terrified that I'm accidentally breaking them... hopefully this is all ok.

  10. Pneumatics
    Hello everyone, so I've been running pneumatic props for 3 years now, and most of which I've planned out myself, so I haven't really learnt much on controlling them, right now I usually go from a air tank/compressor, to a solenoid valve (which is attached to a simple on/off switch circuit I...
  11. Showroom
    Following the direction of Allen Hopps at Stilt Beast Studios, I've begun making corn stalks for my yard display. The main difference between Allen's corn and mine is in the painting: his are painted green, mine are yellows and browns as if they're dead. I also used 1/2" PVC pipe instead of the...

    Just added a few more photos photos and videos from our 2011 extreme haunt To answer a few questions from my first post: First off, thank you all very much. We work hard on this little project, last year we had 65 volunteers and most the neighbors helping out. We do this for two reasons the...

    I toss about 15-20 of these gold cans in the recycling bin at work every day. I decided to rescue a couple and try making some tin punched lanterns. Does anyone know where to find some patterns that would look cool in a Halloween display?

Room 1: The Waiting Room (someone will be hiding under a desk, we'll have a TV playing static, chairs, etc.) Room 2: Undecided Room 3: Maze Room (We'll have evil...
  16. Welcome Room
    Hi everyone, I just wanted to introduce myself. I'm Mike and I have been building Halloween props for the past couple of years. My props were done with embedded microcontrollers and they have been a blast to do, although very time consuming and challenging. Last year I began a new...
  17. Haunt Tactics and Techniques
    Last year, my dad & I decided to do a "Haunted Woods" on the 7 acres we own. It is sort of like a haunted house, except it is set outdoors in the woods. As an added bonus, the property is actually located on a street named "Cemetery Lane" and sits between two actual cemetery sites.Everything...

  19. NJ Hookerman Make and Take
    Hi All, Since our Jan meeting is happening so late in the month, I thought I'd get the Feb Thread started. Unless we fold time and space, there will probably still be a little work left to be done on January's projects. Whether you finish them at home, or at this meeting, We'll still need a...
