    Pirate into a skeleton?

    Any ideas on how Disney will change the pirate captain from a pirate into a skeleton as you pass by? How would this work of the HM bride? Is it done with mirrors or just lights lighting up parts of the AA character?

    Re: Pirate into a skeleton?

    I'm going with:
    the outside of the piate will be scrim and there will be somewhat of a hollow core with a skeleton like figure inside
    just my guess

    Re: Pirate into a skeleton?

    Wait... now I understand the question; Pirate into skeleton!

    Simple!

    Ingredients:
    1 Pirate
    Water to cover
    Large crock pot

    Place Pirate into crock pot and cover with water. Simmer until flesh falls off bones. Place bones into large over on low heat or outdoors in full sun until dry. Assemble with appropriate wire, epoxy, or hinges if movement is desired.

    Viola!

    Well... that's how we'd do it at a museum.... !

    The "/" symbol indicates it's an end tag. So I guess woxel1 is just saying that that's the end of this thread. Just a guess by me though.

    they could use reverse projection (like Madame Leota) where a video image is "played" from inside the figure. This would give them the chance to show a lot of the "transformation," and if the figure was placed in an appropriate corner, it might look mysterious and ominous instead of fake and cheezy.

    Let's all hope they actually had a decent budget and were able to figure out something completely new!
