    Default My take on Disney's Madame Leota

    I finished my Madame Leota prop today. Originally I wanted to do a projection, but just did not have the time or patience to do so. After much thinking, I really needed something to accommodate my Haunted Ouija Board (Haunted Ouija Board) and skull candles (Skull Candles) so I decided to do a twist on the "Magic Mirror". Only I would consider it more of a "Magic Portrait". For all you Disney buffs out there, you should recognize the portraits that I used in between the Madame Leota video, they are all (2 shown, there are 4 in all) from the stretching portraits in the Haunted Mansion. The total video is 6 minutes long and will loop throughout the night.



    Here is a picture of the back of the frame:

    SavageEye ,

    That's a clever solution to not using projection . Your Ouija board and candles combined with your frame will make a creepy Seance scene.

    Did you remove the monitor frame or build over the top of it ?

    Thanks. I completely removed the monitor frame. It was too bulky. I will be spraying the back flat black (say that 10x fast). I used an aluminum "L" bracket from Home Depot to attach the frame and the LCD screen (top and bottom). When you take the housing off of the screen, there are 4 tiny screws (2 at each end), I used these screws, combined with mating holes that I drilled in the bracket to attach to secure the two together.

    Thanks Hollow. Funny thing, I did not even see the cat there until you mentioned it!

    this is a really cool prop. We just got rid of several 15" lcd at work and I was smart enough to grab a few, though I had no purpose for them when I grabbed them but now I do!

    Nicely done! From where did you come up with the video footage of Madame Leota?

    I love it!!! Is there any chance of getting a copy of the video? I would love to use this for my window! I'm a huge Disney fan. My birthday last year was at Disneyland. I was lucky enough to have lunch at Club 33 and dinner at The Blue Bayou.

    You did a great job with the prop!

    seems like you could do a pretty easy mirror with some of that window film.

    add a PIR sensor to it and figure out how to wire that into the serial port on your computer to trigger the animation and you'd have a pretty sick magic mirror.

    love your execution. good job!
