EmoTron won 2nd place at the Blarney Stone (Sean won 1st!). The head is made from an Optimus Prime mask, the shoulders from a couple waste baskets, and most everything else are odds and ends from the dollar store glued on. There were many flashing lights, and I was able to shoot laser beams from my eyes. The problem with this costume is that the dark lenses that made my eyes invisible, also left me practically blind in the low-light atmosphere of a nightclub.

Our contribution to the Vancouver Museum's Haunted Trolley tour was a gallery of the macabre. The challenge was to bring in props and decoration worthy of museum forgery! The gallery had a number of artifacts, some of which were actually genuine as well as a few gags such as a falling axe, shaking boxes, talking skulls, a floating ghost head, a ghostly mirror and a drop panel that scared many. The goal was not to create a haunted house in a museum, but a gallery that could be appreciated as-is with a few scares and effects to enhance.
