Gourds

    Newer Older

    A quick, low-tech halloween project: we hollowed out a couple of miniature decorative gourds. You can get these by the bagful at the grocery store, next to the mini-pumpkins. The one on the left had a kind of wrinkly base that adapted itself well to this shape, and the one on the right had more of a conical tip that we cut off to make a flat base.

    It's unreasonably fun to walk around with one of these in each hand, reenacting the age-old chase drama. Especially when he finds a big dot.

      I'm disappointed that you didn't go all-out EMSL and install white and blue LEDs in the ghost, though.

      ah funny! I wouldn't be surprised if the blinkies were the next step in the plan.

      Not clear how to quickly turn the ghost blue and then back....

      A LOT of LEDs. Or electro-luminescent gourds, I hear they're the Next Big Thing from my, erm, contact in the, um, industry...
