So I have not done any updates on what happen this pass Halloween. My wife asked if I could take a GB break for a few months. I am slowly getting back it to it. So here we go....
Here are some pics of my trap made from foam board before it melted when I put bondo on it…. So sad (I think I deleted the pics from my last post from photobucket, sorry for the broken links)
Here is my wood stunt trap I built.
First I did finish my Stunt Trap before Halloween…
I am hoping to make a better one maybe this year, love that 3d printed one.
I built my own holster for the trap. If you have not tried doing this yourself it is not that hard. Found some great plans here on gbfans.com and got some black leather from Michaels.
Here me and my first pack in 2014, I just wanted something to throw on my back…
Now back to getting my family ready for Halloween!!!
Here is my step son getting his flight suit and pack of for the first time…
Here we are at the military surplus store trying on suits, he is not really feeling it.
It’s a little long.
But when we got home. I let him put his pack on and he can start to see it coming together.
Here is a better picture of his pack. I bought it off another gbfan who son had out grown it.
Now back to my Pack
While waiting for my parts to come in. I ran by the local hockey rink and got some pucks. Just $1 each. My saw sliced them up really easily. But the rubber makes a giant mess. Just like saw dust make sure you give yourself room.
Wonder what parts look like on it? I could not wait to get my parts I ordered in to see what they looked like in place.
After drilling holes for all he parts wanted to see what it looked like with a wand hanging on it?
Spray on texture. Went on really easy.
The Draft House showed Ghostbusters the weekend before Halloween. We had to go test out our gear!!!!
He is still learning to hold the wand.
My stepson working it. I got him excited about going say if you put your gear on people will want to take pictures with you. And they did he loved it and had a wonderful time.
The week of Halloween my wife came to me and was sad that she did not have a costume to wear. She asked for me to build Louis’s helmet. So I was off and only had a week, plus other little parts I was getting ready for everyone else.
She did not want to wear my suite…
Here I am at Wal-Mart trying out colanders on my head. Note, if you buy something at Wal-Mart make sure you wash it first. It maybe have been on someone’s head.
They did not have one with a star pattern so I got my drill out and make it into one. Also cut off the bottom and handles.
Day or so before the party I started laying stuff out and see what we had.
My pack and stepsons gear
Getting the party together…
My youngest son made the ghost. He was only 5 at the time.
We made Windy City Ghostbuster – Ecto Cooler. We were thinking only make a little most people might not want to drink it because it is green. IT WAS A HIT. We had to keep making it throughout the party.
This is my Family…. My wife and kids and our two best friends and their kids.
My wife (as Louis) and one of her friends (as Janine).
Our best friend’s daughters. My wife made the Stay Puff outfit by hand.
My middle son trying to be cool for the camera.
Getting ready to walk out the door.
The kids getting some candy
Putting it away for next year…..
We have a really good time getting ready for Halloween. It will be one, I remember for the rest of our lives. There are still things I want to build and parts I want to upgrade on my pack, but I am so happy I can say I have a Proton Pack. I hope the group enjoys our pictures and I am so glad to have found this group. There are so many great postings on here that I took from and it I really appreciate everyone that shares their ideas. Thank you all for helping my family and friends have a great 2015 Halloween.
