 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.

My Datsun 240Z has an October security system.

She only protects pumpkin color cars.

The Ratt Witch Sisters  

 

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

The vermin are also good for cooking  and beauty potions. No animals were hurt in the testing of the potions...because they are the potion. Sorry about the nekkid witch pictures but Rodentia's robes aren't done yet. Rats of all sizes will inhabit the scene including on top of her sister's hat.

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!

 

  In the Works for 2007

Rat Witch joins the Creepy Cauldron Witch. The pointing arm is an old lamp . Baboon guy will be holding a cook book over his head for her to read 

Creepy Cauldron Witch gets large rings and chains added to her cauldron.

 Baboon Dude gets glowing eyes..

Halloween 2005

 The PVC frame was draped with black cloth. This allowed me to have the lights on in the house but from outside the blacklight ghost was the only thing visible.

The motorized ghost, a.k.a. the Flying Crank Ghost plans come from it's creator here:http://www.phantasmechanics.com/fcghost1.html

Oops, his site is down right now. The eyes are vaseline glass 1 inch marbles which glow under UV light. I used UV leds to make them glow. Everything was purchased on ebay.

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.
