Thanks. Track Skull really made the process of developing a VSA script possible. I doubt that I'd be anywhere without it. This weekend, I'm experimenting with Helmsman and so far the results have been excellent!!
I built a body "frame" from 1" PVC pipe that only cost me about $10. I got the skull from Graveyard Skulls (similar to a Bucky but lighter) and I got a pair of skeleton hands from Mr. Skeleton. The pumpkin is a $7 plastic version that I got on sale at a crafts store.
How did you make the LEDs for the pumpkin blink? I am wanting to make a set of singing pumpkins this year and all the other ones I have seen use DMX lights (too complicated) or normal AC lights with a relay.
