I bought a Glow-in-the-Dark Skeleton 50% off after Halloween. I glued rubber eyes into its eye sockets with holes drilled straight through. I used 1/4″ tubing to connect the eyes to the aquarium pump (~$20). Be aware that aquarium pumps only will pump up so high. Placement of the cauldron to catch the red water will adjust the flow out of the eyes.
I used a small ultrasonic humidifier in the cauldron to give a fog effect, but the falling water disrupts the fog. I illuminated the skeleton with a black light and used a strobe light on the falling water. The falling water under a strobe light give a great effect…..(More)

While watching the trailer to the movie “The Unborn”, I got this idea for another prop which I call “The Unborn.” Basically the idea is a humanoid creature which walks on all fours, and its body’s structure goes against the physics of nature. As shown in the picture above. The character that I used for inspiration from the movie is the picture right below……
