    Good example of Haunted Mansion illusion

    Most of us know how the busts in the Haunted Mansion happen to appear to follow you as you walk past them, but I found this link which gives an excellent example of the illusion. Very cool!

    I actually own a following bust for my Haunted Mansion for Halloween.
    It is lit just like the real one. I get a lot of my professional props from these guys: http://www.abracadaver.com/

    Ah here they are: http://www.abracadaver.com/whatsnew.html
    I own the one on the left. They are expensive so I only have one. It cost me about 240 bucks for 1 of them. It was totally worth it because it is so professional and old looking. It was hand painted by an artist so that made it worth it to me when people are amazed I actually have the effect. The best thing they are impressed with though is my elevator, singing busts, and madame leota. They love the fact I actually have the rare footage of the actual singing busts and madame leota loop in dvd quality.

    very cool pro-site!

    I may be "projecting" (sorry for the pun) but does the guy on the right look kinda like a Cardassian? <-- ST geekdom surfacing - sorry!!!

    still think that's the best you can do for free* and it's actually kinda creepy how well it works!
