There is talk about combining my display with others for a big Hallowe'en Weekend shebang, but until I have real answers about that I'll have to simply say 'stay tuned'.
Yet for the moment, no themes have really come to me this year... not yet, at any rate.
But some time ago I had this dream where this mad scientist-kinda-lookin' thing was working on some crazy robotic nightmare on a table, a 'la Frankenstein... and I knew I wanted to have something from that dream in my display.
So here is the currently nameless Mad Doctor, thus far... click to enlarge, as they say:
He lights up nicely, too...
I am not sure if he will have a doctor's greens, or if he'll have a big shaggy head of steel-wool-ish 'hair'... I am leaning toward the latter.
A foam skull, hot glue, various wires, a demolished camera, and LEDs (and brass and paint and...) all add up to a very odd and unique character.
I took some video for you too, just to see how he looks in decent light...
So, who knows? With sparks flying and instruments clanging, he might be creating some real spooky fun this year!
