A New Spider "Rider"
Test ride. Still need teeth, paint and spikes for skull flail
A new head for the spider Rider. This is done "Spooky Rot Nest" style. Invented by Pumpkinrot and a modified how-to by Spooky Blue. The rasta hair inspired by Shellhawks Nest. Thanks guys and gal.
Ready for foam. 8ft. by 4ft. x 8ft. We will finish like the cemetery columns and move the FCG inside it.
Rodentia Ratt joins her sister (Verminella) this year. She will be looking up and down while pointing at a cookbook held by the baboon skeleton guy. Her other hand holds a wiggling rat over the cauldron stirred by her sister

Well I didn't finish the rat witch but we made a cool graveyard and pillars to go along with all of the other creatures. Two 1000 watt foggers and two 400 watt foggers with fog chillers flooded 2 streets with fog using Froggys Swamp Juice, great stuff!

These guys are masters and the inventors of "Monster Mud" used in several of my props
The Climbing Skeletons
Here are some great lists for many popular projects and ideas
The giant spider was my idea. She has a large beach ball that I fiberglassed as a body. The legs are PVC pipe that are connected by u-bolts to a plywood board. They were tightened when the legs were in the correct position. The legs and body were covered with expanding foam "Great Stuff" and the upper legs used the monster mud technique wrapped around pipe insulation to give the leg segments different thicknesses.
The fiberglass spider butt weighed so much (my first time working with fiberglass, too much resin) that I added a seperate support tube fitting over rebar pounded into the lawn.
