    Re: Long-forgotten Haunted Mansion Effect?

    thats Disney for ya. But I had an exact stencil using cardboard. In a few months we're going to be painting the bedroom and just going to spray paint over the stencil and have a bunch of my artisitic friends come and touch up the whites in the eyes and whatnot

    I did the wallpaper once, its very time consuming, so make sure its what you want. Mine came out... ok... not perfect. Was kinda disappointing.

    we planned for 2 years, we experimented for two years, we've painted murals before and very experianced at art styles and techniques, and I have a team put together and it's pretty level one for what we have been put up against such as sidewalk chalk design and such. It'll be fun and can't wait woo

    Re: Long-forgotten Haunted Mansion Effect?

    A number of people have stenciled that one. Here's a good recent example, with pictures:

    Funny, this is probably the longest micechat thread that hasn't had one person at another's neck (excluding the subject of course).

    Re: Long-forgotten Haunted Mansion Effect?

    I've been having a lot of nostalgic fun with that old Snow White drawing. It seems to me there are at least three ideas that were reused for the HM. We've talked about the HM's menacing trees, which may have been designed to actually move, like Snow White's, but even without the movement they seem like they owe a lot to SW. Then there's the hanging string gimmick, which was tried in the HM attic, but didn't last.

    The third one is less obvious. See the effect just before the strings?



    It's a "gobo" (a large shadow cast by a small object near the light). You looked through the doorway and on the opposite wall was the shadow of the witch, as if she were just around the corner. I think they recycled this basic gimmick for the new SW queue, so you can see a raven's shadow on the stairway, in that tableau where you look down on the dungeon.

    Anyway, the hands drifting over the hallway clock in the HM are a gobo. Same gimmick, basically, that they had been using over at SW since 1955. Later of course, they used gobos for the shadow pianists.

    Re: Long-forgotten Haunted Mansion Effect?

    Talking about gobos suggested a good, easy trivia question for y'all:

    What's the best, most famous, and oldest gobo at Disneyland?

    1) Best (= both the most sophisticated and the most effective)
    2) Most famous (= practically everyone has seen it and remembers it)
    3) Oldest (= since opening day 1955, as far as I know, and it's still there)

    If you don't get this one, you'd better hang up your mouse ears.

    I'm going to say on Peter Pan, when you originally set flight.

    And that one, in turn, reminds me of what they actually did at Tokyo:
