    We are still putting stuff up but I have to say this new wall clock we got this year looks innocent but it has the single longest and creepiest hour chime I can remember. It just goes on and on with people screaming...and it is a Disney theme'd clock!

    Nice! Even has turds hanging off the bottom

    #6 2 years ago

    Double trouble!

    Probably will mount one on the bottom too.

    Oh and these are networking/server fans with blades missing.

    I made Jack and Zero last year. Both heads are papier mache, Jack’s body is made out of PVC and he stands about 10 feet tall. Zero is 4-5 feet long and his nose lights up This year I’m adding an Oogey Boogey and the pumpkin headed “Halloween Town” scarecrow also from Nightmare Before Christmas” And a bunch of other surprises cuz, yup, we’re “that house”!

    Yeah, well, don't worry about our Halloween decorations and costumes, and we won't worry about yours.

    We just picked up our 12+ pumpkins for carving this weekend. Man we love Halloween but since we moved to a court we get jack shit for kids...sucks.

    The best Halloween display I have seen. This was last year in lambertville NJ. The Main Street has big beautiful Victorian homes and many of the owners decorate.

    So after 2 days the chair is almost done.

    The chair is working, vibrates, strobe lights on head and bottom of chair.
    Used a blow torch to show previous use
    Painted, scratched and beat up the head cap

    Built the control panel and stand
    Got the lights, gauge and fan transformer on the panel working (turns on using the small MAIN POWER switch)
    Added LEDs to all of them

    Big control panel OFF/ON switch activates chair

    Need to add some more cables and cosmetic odds and ends

    Then if theres time add air hoses and a compressor.

    Duuuuuude... awesome! My dad built an electric chair when I was a kid (out of an old rocking chair and a lawnmower - seriously!), but this is some badass, next-level shit.

    I am an enormous Halloween fan. I have a Universal Monsters tattoo sleeve and my house is a little Halloween all year (but it gets cranked to 11 in October). I’ll take/post some pics by this weekend.

    COOOOOL, projection mapping? What program are you using?

    #34 2 years ago

    I'm just using effects video files on a USB thumb drive. The projectors I got off Amazon for $80 have inputs for USB, SD card, blue ray, DVD, etc. Need to just hook up speakers now.

    I'm going to hang see-through cloth out in the yard between trees to project a ghost scene and probably a skeleton band elsewhere in the house.

    Setup is easier and cheaper than I thought so I may try more. Next year I'm going to make custom 3D stuff instead of the stock videos available out there now.

    Chair is done. Plug on control panel isn't connected to anything so the victim will think "its not plugged in yet"

    See if you can find the holes for the airline tubes

    Those are so cool! Really like how some are just lurking in the woods. What does the table with all the old fashioned electronics do?

    #43 2 years ago

    That's My Mad Scientist control panel
    It has a Jacob's Ladder in the middle and the bulbs just light up. Have led's in the gauges that flicker and the radio tubes glow. In the inside I have a few bulbs that give a flickering effect as in a short. This it what it looked like when I started.

    is that a real jacob's ladder? Did you build that from a neon sign transformer or what? Let's see some video!!!

    I built it from a kit.

    Will have to hunt down a video of it or set it up and make one.
