My newest project. This is just a test but basically I ordered white flamingos from here
http://wendydsnovelties.corecommerce.com/Flamingos-6-Pair-12-birds/Flamingos-Mix-N-Match-6-Pair-12-birds.html

One of these controllers from here
http://www.diyledexpress.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=3&products_id=8

used some 30LED/M strip from here
http://www.diyledexpress.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=10&products_id=78

and I came up with this here

The neck is kind of dim at the moment I only had 12" of strip to play with as proof of concept. I eventually will place about 18" per flamingo.

By the way the title is from Tracy Byrd's song Pink Flamingos.

Pretty clever, Cory. Interesting where the cable appears to exit from the flamingo's body... :lol: part of the plan?

So... Flamingos take over for Doves as the semi-official bird of Christmas eh? Need to modify the 12 days of Christmas somewhere - "2 Flamingos" doesn't flow as well as "2 Turtle Doves" though...

Anyway - - I like 'em!

great idea!

And then they can turn blue and become the "partridge" in the pear tree.
