Argghhh, Avast ya bloomin' cockroaches!

Just got back from an awesome trip to Disneyland for my birthday, and that's when I realized I have made very few Pirate related props! If there is one thing I like almost as much as Halloween, it's Pirates! Since I was a kid, Pirates of the Caribbean at Disneyland has been the coolest ride, ever, and a ton of inspiration. I am torn between Haunted Mansion and Pirates of the Caribbean to which one is my favorite, but I'd have to say Pirates because usually after the first rain you get a whiff of what I call Caribbean scent! I wish I could bottle the smell of the chlorine, fog, and water that emanates from the main doors of the Pirates facade! I love it, and I love it even more when I get transported to the days of blundering pirates when I smell anything close to what the ride smells like! Squabbling aside, I've finished the helm and ships wheel thus far. I plan on aging both, and then attaching a bucky adorned with a Pirate costume. I also picked up two half barrels at Home Depot to make one barrel as seen on by Hirez00! 

Still need to add the bucky with scary terry servo and my monster guts controller to slow down the speed of the wheel! 


  1. Man, sounds like a good time at Disney. Good luck on your pirate props!

    Word Verification: "Pirab" - is that an Arabian pirate?

  2. Thanks HalloweeNut! Disneyland is always a great time! :) Pirab may very well be an Arabian pirate! :P

    Thanks for taking a moment to leave a comment.. I didn't think anyone read this besides me! haha :)
