the finished props, with 3 days to spare! Thanks all for your suggestions. Both of them are one continuous light with black tape or flex conduit suppressing light where I don't want it. May work the skull head some more and get the mouth singing.
I worked on building a rack to store all the leaping arches I acquired from a local that was getting out of the lighting display. I also started testing them all to make sure they were in working condition. As night came upon me, I sat back and watched the fireworks under my 16 ft lit up pole with a 8 ft wide lit up American flag at the top.
