Hello from new poster and long time lurker to this and other forums. Have gone from cheesy to classy in 10 years with ideas picked up here and elsewhere. Each year I get braver and more ambitious; adding motion, using LEDS, chilled fog, etc. My MIB is first rate, even if I say so myself. Neighbor who is drafting and design teacher helped me design an eliptical cam that slowly raises the lid about 6 inches and slams shut with a bang. Thanks to ScareFX and FrightFX for great ideas.

Weather is always a crap shoot in Colorado for Halloween and I hold my breath every year that my work won't get snowed out.

This year I am working on some styro gravestones, and a animated witch and cauldron, ala ScareFX. I am sure I will have many questions as the prjects go along.

Happy Hauntings!!

Welcome to our forum Jim - Like you I also started out as a lurker and now participate on a daily basis. Like to see pictures of your haunt when you get a chance. Never be afraid of trying new things. Cheesy to classy is how a lot of haunters including myself start out as. Pretty soon you will be looking for more space for your precious props.

As soon as I am able I will be posting some photos. Now that I am getting my feet wet with wiper motors, I might try to adapt my MIB to run off that instead of the BBQ rotisserie motor I am using now. It has good torque but make a little too much noise. OMG it sure makes people jump when it slams shut.

Cheesy to Classy here too Jim. I had "panelling" tombstones before discovering "halloween on the net" LOL. I too have been working on Scare Fx's witch cauldron. There is a thread called "its no Zombie how too.. but here it goes" I think, anyway... there are a few of us doing it this year and hammering out some ideas in that thread, check it!

Glad you joined the forum. I would like to see pics too! Have a spooky time!
