After having to give up pyrotechnics, I needed a new hobby. Halloween props allow for mechanical, electronic, and artistic expression, plus they're fun. This page will show different projects and eventually haunts from various years.
I got a lot of really good information from Dave Korr at Halloween2go.com. If you're new to haunting, there's a lot of detailed explanation on electronics, animatronics and pneumatics.

My Corpse, Marvin
My first Halloween project was building a corpse. I got the plans from http://www.corpsesforsale.com/htbac.htm. It was pretty simple and not too expensive. It turned out great and I ended up giving him to my friend, Chuck, who named him Marvin. I didn't take any pictures during the process, but I plan to do another one soon which I will document fully. Here are two pictures of the finished Marvin:
