Thanks for the creative people who came up with this stuff and took the time to put it onto the net.
head on a table
the site explains everything better than I could. I used 1 leg instead of three, I built a collapsing crate to hide the head in. It was amazing how perfect the illusion was. Adults and kids alike kept asking how it was possible.
This was great too. I used my sons rc car and bolted a plate with a steel rod welded to it. I lucked out finding the sheer fabric that had kind of a purple shimmer to it. two led's for eyes. I'll need a second battery for next year. The wind really wreaked havoc with it as well. I had to clamp 2 vise grips to the plate as weight. I ran it up and down the street to attract people to our house.

I have done this for the last three years now. What a visual effect. Keep back so kids can't get too close! Just soak toilet paper rolls in kerosene overnight, drop into a pumpkin and light. flames burn for about half an hour. Pumpkin looks pretty trashed after the second roll.
