Cheers, gang. Sucks about the weather, Adrian. I hope the second half of the month is better for you than the first half.
It's actually a lot of orange instead of red, but the camera sort of picked it up as red.
How do you do your pirates, Jadewik? Mine is just a thin costume over pvc, so when the wind blows he doesn't look that great. He kind of needs to be padded out. And I'll post some pics or a vid of the fountain when I"ve filled it and start it running.
Yep, it's a blacklight, Shanda. It's a big old honkin' 48-incher mounted vertically on one of the porch posts. Have to be careful when picking the fabric, though, cause not all white fabrics glow under blacklight. I picked out 100% cotton, which is usually a safe bet, but tested a bit first before I bought in bulk, just to make sure. When it comes to uploading pics, try shrinking them down a bit first; they may be too big. I always pop mine into Adobe Photoshop and drop 'em down to between ten and fifteen percent the original size, so they're more manageable.
Anybody have any constructive criticism to offer? Spookymufu, I'm looking in your direction...
