2022 Christmas Light Dangler

Last year some legend out there built a prop that hung off his roof as if he was stranded hanging in mid-air in an emergency kind of state. Several people tagged me saying I should build one. So this year, I gave it a shot. What you see below is some behind the scenes pics & videos. It's been funny to see neighbors and people driving by stopping, reversing their cars, double-taking, etc. when they think it's a real person up there.

To build this I used a FrightProps Halloween PVC kit that I modified slightly and coupled it with a motor. That's the core of the solution. Beyond that it's just duct tape and bubble wrap to build out the body. Oh and a foam head from Hobby lobby!
