Rocking Chair Mechanism
Rocking Chair mechanism.
This will be an assembly of the motor/armature, and will probably include the understructure for neck, shoulders, arms, and legs. The rocking chair, head/mask, clothing, and fake hands/feet are not included. Here’s a video of what this project is based on:
Brentwood (no, not the one in Southern California; it’s the one north of Livermore, near Antioch)
I’m still pricing everything, but it is estimated to be in the area of $40 to $45. This includes the motor, power supply, hardware, wood, and probably PVC and connectors for the neck/shoulders/arms/legs.
I made this prop for my haunt last Halloween and the results were great! Many people were very apprehensive about walking past it, and I heard comments such as, “Oh, that’s too creepy!” and “That’s just wrong. There’s no way I’m walking in front of that thing.”
A lot of people thought there was a real person inside because they couldn’t figure out how it was moving all by itself.
I myself thought it looked really creepy. And now, you can make one for yourself!
