FYI..... My ball had alot of scratches, really unusable. I used Pledge with orange oil on it and they are not noticable anymore. This is a tempory fix, I guess as the oil dries it will reveal the scratches again. I suppose you could use any oil, as long as the ball stays slightly damp. I did this yesterday afternoon and it is still good as of this morning. This will work for my haunt, we only do Halloween night. Hope this helps someone. You may want to test a small area first just to make sure whatever you use doesn't react with your ball. Good luck!

Just getting ready to ask about the crystal ball, but then I got this like thing in my head to actually read the rest of the thread. Then I figured it out. Go figure. I thought about making something like this next year but in its own structure or building. Like a booth or something. The ball that you see in the photo I have enclosed I got at wal-greens. It actually changes color etc. It certanly wouldn't be good for this but I wanted to incorperate it some how. But I would like to do this, just need a projector.

I sure hope you do it DT! It's such a rewarding project...even more so than 3-axis skuls, perhaps.

Nice work Ward! I know that isn't your final setup, but you may want to make the projection a little larger in relation to the head form.

I think my head form is much more narrow than yours. Had to compress/squeze (left to Right) the video in premeire to make sure eyes and nose fit properly. Still leaves a little unused head form a tthe bottom. Any thoughts?

I used a FAVI Mini Pocket Projector, PJM-1000, beware that is is for close range projection. My projector is hidden inside a hollow mini-podium holding a book in the video. (about 30-32 inches away)

I think the trick with the head is to not make it too rounded-- the flatter it is, the less the image will distort. I used plaster to make the face wider and create a uniform texture on the whole head. See the pic on the first page.

Here is a link to the wig I used. A 10$ blonder curly wig, that I sprayed with "black light hairspray" that i picked up a hallloween store last year. placed a UV/blacklight next to my projector to get the wig to light up.

what about a clear plastic balloon has anyone tried to project on that. I have a balloon stuffer that you can slip anything through a 4 inch tube into a clear balloon. But I do not have a projector so I can not test to see if it works.
