Welcome to My Halloween
Page for 2009. We brought back many of our old Halloween favorites, and in addition to these, we
added "The Monster Mash" as this years new feature! It took many days to build,
many days to program (Rachel & Will), and one real late evening to put it up the
night before Halloween. (Thanks for the help Skippy) The
new feature this year is the Talking Pumpkin Head and his blonde backup singers
singing The Monster Mash while Frankenstein rises up to dance along. The Singing
Pumpkin uses electroluminescent wire and an ice cube relay bank; Frankenstein
and the backup singes are pneumatic, and a Light-O-Rama 24-channel control
system controls the whole Monster Mash show. A/B plc drives the Walkway show (thanks to Robert.) Check out the videos below.
If any of you
Automation types want to contribute to the cause, I'll let you.
The videos at the bottom
will show the stuff actually moving: Daytime video of The Monster Mash Show (hard to see the
Pumpkin singing), Nighttime video of the Show, Rotating Pumpkin Cake, and the
Walkway Show. This show consists of Ghosts lighting up and popping up, Creature tries to escape from the
coffin, Three pumpkins rise up and light up (The Pumpkin Dance), The rocking
chairs are lit up and rock. Mr. and Mrs. Skeleton, and Jr. are rocking
and greeting guests dressed as Ghosts, the
Raven flaps his wings, tilts forwards and backwards, rotates his head, and his
eyes flash red, The spider travels his web from top to bottom, The fog machine adds
ambiance, Lights and pumpkins add to the festivities, and of course Disney's
"Grim Grinning Ghosts" Haunted Mansion Theme Song is playing in the background.
