Thought I would finally get around to showing off a Halloween project that was built for the 2018 Haunted Halloween Trail of Tears (link here). Those that checked out the trail walkthrough probably noticed a couple of interesting adds that I didn’t really talk much about. Was looking at my post queue and noticed I STILL had not posted on that project over a year later. This must be remedied immediately (as in before this year’s Halloween hits the history books). So without further delay I bring you Project Nightwings.
The night shots of the Nightwings didn’t come out the best because.. well, it was dark. Last year there was close to zero ambient light on the trail making it a bit difficult on the final camera round. Now, on the other hand, definitely upped the spook factor on the trail! If you look closely you will see a giant pair of wings adorning the back of the gargoyle. Now, making one pair of wings is fun enough, however, TWO wings pretty much puts this guy on cloud nine. The second pair is even harder to make out as the black wings blended into the darkness – unlike the zombie silhouette that looked awesome after an upgrade was made to the backing board that reflected the light better)
Hit jump to see how these new props for 2018 came to be!
