While it might be too early to start thinking about Halloween for many of us, there is a distinct community for whom planning begins on November 1st of the year before. (You know who you are.) You also happen to know what the best gadgets, websites, tools and tips are for making the most of your Halloween extravaganza. Have a favorite microcontroller for operating those leaping ghouls on your front lawn? A really good tool for carving pumpkins? A particularly fine recipe for fake blood? Well, we want to hear about it, so we can pass it along to the rest of the world, who start planning Halloween in late September (don’t worry, they just haven’t caught the bug yet). We’re looking for reviews for Ghoulbox, the Toolbox-equivalent in our new Halloween special issue.
DIY HALLOWEEN 2007 is from the editors of MAKE & CRAFT and brings you 40-plus DIY projects for the holiday that’s made for makers. From the craftiest costumes to amazing animated props and the latest in computer-controlled haunted house effects, this special issue will include: headless Marie Antoinette costume, mechanical ghosts and ghouls, LED and laser jack-o’-lanterns, creature makeup and blood-spurting wounds, DIY coffins and tombstones, T. Rex rooftopper, flaming LED skulls, kid-tested haunted house tricks, and a special “Ghoulbox” section with Halloween kits, tools, and gadgets. Plus demonic decorations, hideous party snacks, and profiles of extraordinary makers and their creepy crafts.
