I created this prop 2 years ago; these photos had been waiting a while before they became the Instructable they were originally purposed for :)
My true inspiration for this decoration, came from the Pirates of the Caribbean ride at Disneyland. As you returned to the station (dock?) your boat was carried up a large conveyor belt, and in doing so, passed by a dark, dungeon-like crawlspace which contained several pairs of eerie-looking, red glowing eyes, which blinked randomly every few seconds or so. (It might not still be there though, I haven’t been to D-land in years. I honestly wouldn’t be surprised if they had replaced it with Queen Elsa in a lightsaber-duel with Darth Vader….)
First of all, many of the methods and materials I used can be substituted for other ones. However it’s up to you to figure out any modifications, as I can only show my own example of how I did it.
I highly recommend that, before you read further in this Instructable, scroll all the way down to Step-6 to read my afterthoughts and reflection on this project.”
