Easy Brain in a Jar

Allen Hopps has a brain the size of a baked potato. Ok, now that I’ve got your attention I should probably rephrase that. Allen’s got a great tutorial on how to easily make a brain in a jar that starts out roughly the size of a baked potato and requires far fewer ingredients than I would put on said potato. His method starts by balling up some aluminum foil and then adding some caulk to it to create the sulci and gyri (brain grooves). Once you drop it in a jar filled with water the size of the brain looks deceptively larger! Items needed to complete this include: 1 gallon jar Aluminum foil Gray silicone caulk Black paint White acrylic paint Polyurethane spray...

Making LED Spotlights Oct08

Making LED Spotlights...

I love mini LED spotlights, and they truly don’t cost that much to buy, but if you’re anything like me (is uber-frugal better than saying cheap?), it’s hard to justify paying for something that’s pretty simple to make. There are tons of tutorials online to guide you through the process of making your own LED spotlights, but none of the tutorials I’ve read have so clearly articulated the process as the video tutorial posted below.  And with that being said, it should come as no surprise that it was created by Allen Hopps of Stiltbeast Studios.  ...

Prop Dental Plates

If you create your own masks or creatures for your haunt, you’ve probably needed to find some teeth for them.  I always heard the phrase that necessity was the mother of invention, but it turns out it’s actually Allen Hopps.  He’s got a great tutorial on how to make dental plates for your masks and props.  Since they’re made from hot glue sticks you really don’t want to put them in your mouth, but they’ll look great as an accent to any prop....

Stiltbeast Studios Human Pelt...

Allen Hopps tutorial on how to make a human pelt is one of those tutorials that makes me scratch my head and ask myself  “Why didn’t I think of that”.  It’s such an easy idea and the finished product looks great, so if you’ve got need for a human pelt for your haunt then watch the video below because it could not be any easier....

Blood on the Cheap

If you’re looking for the perfect recipe for blood then look no further.  Actually, Allen Hopps from Stiltbeast Studios would probably disagree completely with that.  He’s provided some great recipes for blood in his Blood on the Cheap tutorial, but I’m sure he would encourage you to experiment with other formulas until you find the blend that best suits your needs....

Homemade Meat Hooks

Allen Hopps of Stiltbeast Studios has a fantastic tutorial on how to make some really realistic looking meat hooks out of plastic hangers.  You’ll absolutely love how easy they are to make and the cost for a dozen is next to nothing.  All that’s left to do after this tutorial is attach your favorite gored up body parts and hang them from the ceiling....
