Two skeleton gravediggers either side of a grave, grave has an infinity mirror in it. Using talking skeletons, one could say "I think you've dug the hole too deep" then the other replies "what do you think children". Use a sensor to trigger the conversation each time ToTs approach. I'm thinking skeleton 2's response will get the ToTs to look into the "grave".

I have 2 full size talking skeletons.
Now all I need is 1 infinity mirror, and ideas of inside; sensor system to trigger the skeletons; and the voice-over track.

The talking skeletons and trigger is easy enough. The fun part will be a suitable looking grave hole as the infinity effect needs the glass top and illumination inside.

if you mocked up something like in the pic below, the top of the infinity mirror could be several centimeters below the top of the 'grave' and the green cloth would help disguise it?

Just had another thought, with that example (pic in previous post) a square infinity mirror could be placed in the middle and each end (as marked by those 2 bits of timber) could be at 'ground level'.
The 1st skeleton could then say something like "I think you've dug the hole too deep in the middle", or "it's meant to be 6 foot long, not 6 foot deep!"

made two infinity mirrors, pretty easy following instructions off of internet. So disguising edges would be good, could you get a skeleton to drop an imaginary pisec of dirt and get sound effect for falling into a deep hole to represent depth?
Cheers love the idea. ps headstone out of polystyrene and painted up

Remember, you have to allow for the lowest common denominator. How do you stop dills from stepping on it and getting hurt?
