  1. Tripping GFCI

    A couple of years back I got a deal on a bunch of plastic real tree bases and zip tied by tomato cages to them. Makes them heavy enough to keep them from tipping over and insulates them from shorting or bleeding to ground. Now I just have to figure out something for my wire frame deer.

  6. I finally went outside!

    For the last 3 or 4 years I've went out dressed as Santa waving to traffic as it goes by (we live on a major thoroughfare) and handed out candy canes and little coloring books to the kids that are with the families that stop. Not as many stop ask I would like but the ones that do love the gesture. I've also had my wife dressed as Mrs Claus and grandkids dressed as elves and got a very nice response. Just with new job I don't get out as much as I would like, only Saturdays and some Sundays, hate that. I also have had several people try to give me money and I told them no thanks that's not why I do it that I do it to see the joy in kids faces young and old. I frequently have emergency vehicles go by and usually get a flash of lights from them, love it.

  9. robotic rudolph

    Thanks guys I finally found it. It was on Planet Christmas from back in Aug 2009 labeled Animation is Rudolph by Frank_Lo. Unfortunately it doesn't show any construction but I'm thinking of this as a long term project I would like to start and build right to sort of interact with visitors.
  10. robotic rudolph

    This was a stuffed Rudolph that he bought and took the stuffing out. I believe he put it over a wire frame and used servos and I think it was 30 inches or so tall.
  11. robotic rudolph

    On one of the Christmas forums somebody posted an article and video of a robotic Rudolph that he had built, it was full body and it's head and neck along with the mouth moved and his video showed it saying some of the phrases from the movie. I thought I had book marked it but can't find the bookmark or the page. If there is anyone that might remember this and can point me in the right direction it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

  13. What to do

    As far as them wanting to do behind the scenes I don't profess to know their motives but I have a very well known local reporter who wanted to do a series of stories on everything from concept to opening day we wernf able to get together on a schedule for this year so they came out and did some short interviews and video to air during the news on christmas day with the understanding that we'll try to vet together for the big story next year.
  14. Dreesing as Santa

    You sound a lot like me. I work on a very limited budget. If I want something I have to do some work on the side to afford it so expansion each year is limited. I also rent and although my landlord is really leinient i'm still limited in what I can do. 4 years ago I bought a mr christmas musical show box aftertwo years and seeing a show that showed a LOR box I bought one and ran with one box 16 channels. Last year I dabbled in rgb with snow globe's on 18 channels with a few problems along the way. This year I added 32 more LOR chanells two more rgb globes and a 12 section 36 channel 10' rgb tree with a three section 9 channel rgb star on top. Would like to add singing trees next year if I can afford it.
  15. Dreesing as Santa

    Just wondering I haven't seen too much mentioned of this. Does anyone here dress up as Santa and go out into their display. I've been doing it the last couple of years, my wife bought me a costume a couple of years ago and made me a better one this year. First time took a lot of convincing and prodding from my wife as I'm actually a fairly shy guy but once I got out there I had a ball. We added Mrs Claus last year and my grandkids dressed as elves this year. We live on a fairly busy road one of the main roads out of town ( one way ) and I just go out and wave to traffic as it goes by and give candi canes to kids in vehicles when there parents stop. The reactions I get are priceless, makes my day. Anybody else do this or something similar
