    Lerch looks great, I sure hope there's no small children in the pipeline after the wedding or his life might be very short lived.

    As Halloween is rapidly approaching Lerch has started to grow.

    Now he has legs (well not yet attached)

    Lerch is now Henry

    Somewhere on the way Lerch changed his name to Henry and came out for Halloween this week.

    Henry was the star of the light show for our Halloween party last night (we had enough witches for a coven and needed blood on tap) and now lots of folks stop out front and take photos.

    He is a multi-coloured spider with 11 x 42 pixel strings and a linear actuator.

    Tuppets Halloween

    Well our first real try at a Halloween show. We had a fancy dress party for 70 people on the Friday before Halloween and had fun decorating inside and outside. Tuppet and Mother Tuppet made Ghoul food for all.

    I was away for the 31st of October but Mother Tuppet and Brother Tuppet were up to the job. We had about 250 trick or treaters who cleaned us out of lollies and took lots of photos.

    You can see our show ...starring Henry (He is the spider not the skeleton) .. I am the handsome one.. 8)

    ! Private video

    You can also see a few pics from our party.
