The scene that’s set is up to you! Each tree is attached to a sturdy metal base and has two separate cords, each requiring its own separate power source connection: one for the motor to activate movement; one to activate lights.
Animated Gothic Girl $117.00
The Gothic Girl isn’t a great on her own but when you put her in a scene or haunt as a secondary character she works really well. Last year I put a blacklight in my storage shed and had a infant sitting right in front of a TV showing nothing but static. It was pretty creepy. I placed the Gothic Girl over to the side where you couldn’t see her unless you were in the shed. The prop worked great and complimented the infant staring at the TV. The Animated Gothic Girl doesn’t really say anything. When she’s activated she just moans and sways from side to side and her arms move. She is 64′ inches tall and doesn’t weigh very much.
Zombie Containment Unit NFS
This is my Zombie Containment Unit prop for Halloween 2017. It’s built around two zombie videos from Hi-Rez Designs. I used Front Panel Express to manufacture the panels. They engrave the text on the panel then infill the engraving with ink. I added a Fusion 360 archive and the .STL files for the bar graphs to my circular bar graphs repository on github. My username over there is bikerglen. I used Sculpteo to fab the 3D printed parts, Front Panel Express to fab the CNC’d parts, and OSH Park to fab the PCBs. I bought a small moving head light with custom biohazard and skull and crossbone gobos and some LED blacklights. I’ll see what I can do with them. If they work well, I’ll add DMX to the FPGA. Otherwise, I’ll use them in a side show controlled by xLights or Luminair 3.

Menacing Molly $179.99
Sweet little Molly loved to swing beneath her favorite tree from dusk ’til dawn. She would play by herself for hours and hours with no one else in sight. For the most part, Molly enjoyed being alone, but sometimes she would get really sad and lonely. Molly loved Halloween because she would ask all the children passing by to come play with her. With each decline, Molly began to have thoughts from deep within. Her demons started to take control and take over Molly’s pure, innocent soul. If you see her swinging at night, just be warned… She may look cute but she is willing to do absolutely ANYTHING for some friends. Her demons feed off of the innocence of those passing by… and Molly is always, always hungry.

p.s. Hey. ** Steve Erickson, Hi. Yeah, I know, and of course I was half joking too. Really want to see ‘Ex Libris’. His films show here a fair amount, so I’ll likely get a chance. And ‘Western’, which I hadn’t heard of. Hm, intriguing. ** Armando, Look, man, chill out. You’re really overreacting to what Steve wrote and what his intentions were. Enough with the hostility please. And hi. No, just sound editing today. Doing that eats the whole day. Our film’s budget is somewhere around 125,000 Euros. ‘The Sluts’ isn’t the longest. Well, maybe by number of pages, but it has a lot of blank space. I think ‘Guide’ is maybe my longest in terms of the actual writing. I’ll have to think about my favorite longest novel. There have been some. What’s yours? ‘Measuring Change’ is excellent, of course. I have to rush this morning to get to the sound studio, so I can’t lay the film out now, but, yeah, it’s superb. ** David Ehrenstein, Morning, maestro. ** Misanthrope, Hi, G. Oh, I have this problem with, like, pre-event anxiety, sort of like what you said: dreading things and getting stressed until they happen, and then, when they do, I’m, like, Oh, no big deal. Strange. My best guess is that Gisele’s stuff hasn’t gone to DC because there’s either no money or because Gisele isn’t a known thing in the US, so there’s no guarantee that enough people will show up to warrant paying for her work to come overseas. And my attached name isn’t a big draw either. Kind of, what do you call it, a Catch 22? The work can’t be known there until it’s there, but it’s not known enough to get there. Sucks. ** New Juche, Hi, Joe! Thanks! ** Bill, Hi. I’m glad someone else caught the Eno reference. That squib got that escort a berth here. And, yes, the haunted house escort! Listen, man, don’t think I haven’t dallied with becoming a potential guestbook commenter in my strange mind. Oh, no, another fake? Or a Torbjørn Rødland model with other things on his plate? Did you get some decent prep for your gig in this weekend? What’s the gig? Oh, hm, I guess knowing the sources would help, and I haven’t read that novel in ages, but wouldn’t just knowing the movies be enough? Hm, good question. ** _Black_Acrylic, Hi, Ben. Wow, the YnY crew are a jet-setting bunch. That’ll pay off in the end. Do you go watch football in person, or do you mostly watch it on the box? Yeah, I guess so on the steroids. They have such a bad rep or negative hype or something, but obviously they can do more than just inflate bodies. ** Dóra Grőber, Hi, Dora! Hooray, thank you, and it seems like it went really well. The blog traffic was really strong this weekend. I’m so happy and so happy that you’re happy! I am really looking forward to bringing the actors in for the dubbing. Especially Benjamin, our star, as we haven’t seen him since the shoot, and he’s so fantastic in the film, and I’m excited that he’ll get to see at least some little examples of his great performance. My weekend … oh, this sucks. My trust laptop has finally started its death throes, and now I have try to keep it artificially alive until my new laptop arrives in 10 or 12 days. Getting a laptop with an American keyboard in France is a lengthier process than I realized. Ugh, But it’s still sort of working. Otherwise, not too much. Zac and I had a visit, and I laid out my ideas for our new film, and he loved them, which means we can start working on the script, and that’s exciting because I’m dying to do that. How was your Monday? Thank you again so much for letting SCAB run the blog’s show! ** Kyler, Hi, K. Busy in the park is good. Sweet. Nice little profile of you, buddy. ** Chris dankland, Hi, Chris! Thanks so much for your great words to Dora. The film is getting near the finish. Most boring part? Mm, I guess, like everybody who makes films usually says, it would be the ‘dead’ time while you’re waiting for the crew to set up the equipment for the next shot, which can take a frustratingly long time. Yes, I saw Burroughs read a few times. Best reader? If I were to say best reader as opposed to coolest person to have seen read, I would say that when Kathy Acker was really on, she was an incredible reader. Amiri Baraka was an amazing reader. Guyotat. Eileen Myles is an excellent reader. Any favorite writer/readers of yours? ** Thomas Moronic, Hi, T. My weekend was all right apart from the beginning of the death of my computer. Nice fall weather. Pretty low-key. Progress. Not bad at all. See any particularly good art? ** Okay. Today the Halloween season beings at DC’s, an annual tradition beloved by me and likely less so by everybody else, ha ha, but oh well. Expect Halloween-relateed posts 2 or maybe 3 days a week from now until the end of October. Perfect time and occasion to learn to love the holiday if you don’t already? See you tomorrow.
