    I have 120v rope light and it's actually 36", not 18" so I'm really going to have some extra... oh well that's why we have duck tape!

    Here is a similar idea I finished a little while ago. It uses 12 volt leds and 25 channels. The video is not that great, but you can get the idea.

    I've given up on using 120vac rope light for this, the lengths are going to be too messy so I'll be ordering some 12v stuff which will be safer anyway...

    Nope - haven't seen that particular one but many others - pretty good with the multiple lip-syncs on it.

    Since when did you go for safer? I thought you were the kind of guy who lived on the edge!

    Brian, how many channels will one "face" take? I count 11. I really like all of the mouth shapes but I would make one small change to the eyes (if I'm interpreting your design correctly). I think it would be more natural for the closed eye to use the bottom line instead of the top.

    Keep up the good work and keep us posted on your progress!

    Yeah - there are 11 for every individual piece. The alternative is to wrap each mouth shape separately which you might get away with a larger pumpkin frame but it might get a bit bulky with the smaller one. When I start wrapping it might end up to be some hybrid .

    I made a trip to BigLots! today and they had 120v rope light for $8 which is pretty cheap - so - so much for 12v - got all the colors I wanted (Red, Blue, Green and Orange) too. If I had more time/patiience I would get all the 12v stuff but this will work for now - just have to cover up all the extra. No one will see it at night anyway. I'm hoping to have this sucker running this weekend. I've got Thriller all ready and This is Halloween is close.

    As for the eyes - - I like them with the angled look - it looks a bit creepier that way but it's pretty easy to make it either way. Anyway, I highly recommend Dougp's wireframes - they're very well made!

    Brian, how in the world do you find time to do these projects?!?!?!? Last time I checked, we still had only 24 hours in a day here in Minnesota. Did the Governator change your time or something???

    LOL - and this coming from the guy that's got about 500 hours of sequencing done - months ago....... Actually some stuff (strobes, etc) dropped off so my xmas show will be much like last years for better or worse so I decided to put a bit more effort into Halloween this year.
