Welcome to Our Halloween
Page for 2018. I'd never built a guillotine before, so that's what I did this
year. Green Monster gets the honors of pulling the handle. I did some animation
projections this year also: the guillotine pumpkin, and three pumpkins in front
of the garage. I bought the animations from atmosfx.com. Those folks are great.
I also thought we'd lighten the mood with some jokes. So, Pumpkin Man (Voiced by
Skippy) sets up some jokes, and the talking Skull (Voiced by Reid) delivers the
punch line. We brought back the graveyard with tilting and rocking tombstones as
well as some Creepy Dolls/Toys
popping up from
behind a couple of tombstones. I gave the
Three Rising Light-up Pumpkins and the Creature in the Coffin the year off. The Spider
still travels his web from top to bottom, black lights add
ambiance, Halloween lights and carved pumpkins add to the festivities. JM
donated some great creepy clown masks to adorn the skeletons in the rocking
chairs and in the graveyard.
It takes lots of string
lights, lots of pneumatics, lots of cylinders,
lots of relays,
lots of extension cords, and lots and lots of time to create the show. The show is run by a Light-O-Rama 24-channel control
system. Check out the pictures and videos below.
There are YouTube
links to different portions of the display and show below.
