Talking Skull Greeter
By Procrastinating Props
After I bought a cheap oversized foam skull from K-Mart, the first step was to cut it open to add all the electronics. I used the Hot Knife from Hot Wire Foam Factory.
Tracy made this unique rock-wall entry to his haunted house by cutting out each rock seperately with the Hot Knife and Scroll Table and gluing them onto plywood.
