After a long year of prop building, I've finally been able to complete my entire prop to do list for this year's haunt.
These videos show short clips of the major new builds I took on this year.


Here's the video for the early season builds -


Thanks to all those here and those members of the various haunt groups I belong to for their inspiration, ideas and help. Without all of you, I couldn't have accomplished this!

Wow! You have been busy! Everything looks fantastic... as always.:)

btw- I usually make a list after I do something, regardless of how minor it is, just so I can mark it off. :D :D

You've been busy, but come on, you have a whole month for at least one more prop. :) You made some cool stuff this year.

Thanks everyone but I'm curious as to the concept Hairazor mentioned. What is this thing you speak of called "sleep"? Is it some new recreational pastime that keeps ones from building our beloved Halloween props?

Wow, absolutely amazing, everything looks top notch! And with some time to spare! I love the ease you explain things and I'm over here freaking out going, he designed his own circuit boards? You might as well made life spontaneously happen, it's like magic to me. I'm that way with costumes, designing wigs, etc but that just doesn't compare to what you've done. Go you! The attacking snake is still my favourite, but I'm way to terrified to try that myself.

Job well done sir!

You've made some great stuff this year and to see your list completed with 6 weeks to spare is inspiring (or maybe depressing!)
I consider myself on the low end of the technologically adept scale so I'm in awe of how you make this stuff look so easy. Excellent job!

It's funny you should mention making life spontaneously happen, APT as I'm always working to make my animatronics come alive. I'm working on a project that probably won't be ready for this year but it will be another step in the right direction.

This was awesome! Great work and WOW too!
Is there an in-depth how-to for the Flash Cracker and the Striking Snake, somewhere on here or your site? Or even a moderately explained how-to? Those are two things I've wanted to know how to do for a while. Never seen the Flash Cracker in real life tho, I've wanted to do something similar in my haunt party, but this gave me the inspiration to flesh out my ideas better. Thanks!

I don't really have detailed how to's but I do have separate video's for them which show much of the construction.
Here is the one for the flash cracker -


Here is the video for the striking snake -
