Affectionately referred to as Tombie, this talking tombstone
makes a great Halloween prop
. Alan Perakh built a tombstone out of Styrofoam then added the talking face and hooked it up to a laptop for audio. It looks like this project takes some time, but the directions are easy to follow and the result will be well worth it.
There are many Styrofoam tombstone designs out there, but the idea of using clay and adding stone effect paint makes all the difference here. The final prop looks realistic, and perfectly frightening. Play around with your own preferences and make the face look any way you'd like. The audio will be a fun part to design. What will your tombstone say? I can just imagine this guy greeting me at the door, offering instructions before entering the haunted house, or telling spooky tales.
