It is said that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. Well, Devil's Chariot from Hauntforum must be one of the most flattered propbuilders out there this year. Last year, he took a new angle on the 'witch stirring a cauldron' prop and came up with his excellent "Cauldron Creep"
When asked to make a piece to donate to my son's High School Robotic's team for their silent auction, I struggled with what to make. It had to be ultra cool, animated, but small enough to appeal to the casual haunting enthusiast. I decided to take a shot at making this prop, but in a much smaller scale. My version is powered by the turntable motor from a microwave, and stands 12 inches tall to the top of the natural maple stirring pole.
I have spotted one major design flaw in this piece....I WANT IT FOR MY OWN! Oh well, the kids need the support, so this one goes off to charity. If anyone is interested in placing a bid on this prop, the auction will be held at Southport High School, Indianapolis Indiana on October 17th.
