Every year, me and my family try to out-do all of our neighbors christmas decorations. An each year we try to do something totally different because the neighbors copy us the following year and we have a totally new theme and set-up.
Well, now we will be moving to a whole new city where nobody knows we love to put on spectacular christmas displays and we wanna go all out. An the idea I came up with is LED lights shinning on our house. We want it to look exactly like Sleeping Beauty's castle during the fireworks. I mean we want it to change color combinations throughout the night and be able to be sychronized to music once or twice every night. Not only that, but we want it to be different colors on different parts of the house to show all the bends and cuts in the architecture. Meaning we would need lots of those little LED panels.The only problem is I know NOTHING about how to put on such a display.
So im asking if anyone has any insight on how to do this? Like, around how much would it cost to do this? What type of LED's does Disney use? Are the lights weather proof? Does anyone know what type of speakers are weather proof and can be hidden during the day? Can they be syncronized to music? An if so, what would I need to do it (software, ect.)? Is there any other great companies that make these types of lights? Do you guys have any refrences to websites where I can learn more about this? An is this even possible without making a mess of cables running around my house? An I don't get all the numbers they throw at you about lumines and stuff like that. An to top it all off, I want to put white icicles on some of the house. Im talking about the super bright ones they put on the castle last year during christmas. Any insight on where to find those would be greatly appreciated too.
I know this is a major task but I really want to do it. An I know it'll take some time to program all the "shows". But Im willing to do it. Thats why Im planning know!
