Halloween is first, but I am really excited for the stuff that I am adding this Christmas.  I have my Christmas plan done, channels all finalized, working on props and bundles.

 

Halloween is another story.  All I have is a list of things that I am adding.  No plan, no channels.  Ugh.  How do I  get motivated for boo, when I am all set for ho, ho, ho?

Start watching youtube videos of halloween displays.  That's what I usually do when I'm not feeling motivated.  Then it starts to come back. ;)

For Halloween my twin 12yo boys made a 20'x20' spider web. i attached lights to each strand and sequenced it.

The boys also made a 14' spider out of expanding foam, pvc pipes and trash bags,

 

But the highlight of my show last year was projecting faces onto uncut pumpklns.

 

If you did just one item, this would be very popular.

 

I bought the movies and played them using a falcon pi player.

the fpp can sequence lights and play movies.

 

here is some of those singing pumkins https://www.youtube.com/user/bopeesdad

I did the singing pumpkins last year.  I actually cartooned them myself using Smith Micro's Anime Studio.  I'm sure that mine were not as fancy as the ones that you can buy.  You can see them here:

 

 

 

I love the spider web idea.  I think that I am out of time to add something that big now,

Or you could give in, reduce the stress, and just pitch Halloween. Use your time to improve the look of your Christmas display. Much greater return on investment.

Good idea, but I use Halloween to set up for Christmas.  I set up all the controllers, power grid and network.  

 

I think watching the videos will get me going.
