Hey, your grave popper looks great. Should give the kiddies a fright! They won't expect that witch to pounce like that.

By the way, sorry that video embedding isn't working at the moment, but I've fixed your post to just show the direct link to YouTube where everyone can watch the video.

Hahaha nice one graveyard. I can just imagine the kids and adults jumping out of their skin. Is that going to be a sign that she is hiding behind?

Great start!

I wouldn't know where to begin if I were to make such a thing. I must ask,is it a tombstone she is holding, or a sign?

On alot of air pressured props most of them recommend to use 100 psi, how high is yours set. Sorry about the roof, i bet it was fun to watch though.

Nice looking prop. That witch must have had her broom and that's why she flew up so high. Are you in peterborough ontario? It's always good to see people in Southern Ontario with the Halloween spirit.

She is fantastic! I love the sound :) I can't wait to see the finished product. I have always wanted to tackle my own moving props but I am technically challenged with that sort of thing. I plan to teach myself one day though!

Thanks gus. It gets confusing living in ontario. We have so many citys that are in other countrys like london, paris, cambridge, and we used to have berlin but it was renamed kitchener.
