It talks!

Got to play around with my cage today and I got the Scary Terry servo by Cowlacious installed and ready to go! It's not a three axis skull that are all the rage today, but they are still very effective! The audio needs to be redone and touched up in Audacity, but that will be a project for another day! Hopefully I can come up with a routine so my Helmsman and Prisoner can talk to each other! The skeleton drinking on the barrel is just going to loop to the Drinking Pirate from the Disneyland Pirates of the Caribbean soundtrack.

I have some Drylok that I use to paint the tombstone, but I think the sandy gritty texture applied to the metal cage and then painted black with a faux rust patina the cage will be complete! Now I just have to determine what I want the gallows pole to look like.. decisions.. decisions.. I want it not to be so large that it over takes the living room, but because the prop is close to 60 lbs it needs to be able to support it! Enjoy the short clip! Hopefully the next update he will be stained, cage painted, and the base to hold said cage will also be finished! 


  1. Dude, I'm serious when I say this: you are among the best of prop builders! I honestly can't wait to see what your haunt video will look like!

  2. Thanks HalloweeNut, I still have a way to go, but thankfully there is always a lot of inspiration and tutorials to help out.. I'm always amazed what I will find on HalloweenForum and from Dave Lowe! So many awesome and talented people out there!
