Since I didn't get my blinky lights finished in time for Christmas this year, I decided to put Santa Claus together to hold down the fort until next year.

OK, you found me out!
As a Halloween guy that's starting to also do Christmas, I have a lot of masks. I used one of my old man masks for Santa. I was hoping with the beard and hat that no one would notice. I'll be adding Christmas masks to my collection as I find them.

Had never heard of Spider Hill Prop Works until watching your video. Now it looks like Halloween is going to be a lot more exciting around here! LOL

Thanks for the info!
