Beau Le'Phant needs a little help in 2012

Postby Galaxo Magic » Thu May 24, 2012 7:07 am

Hey folks, we are looking to make some cool improvements to our mutant vehicle in 2012, dressing up all the lowering running areas, beefing up the suspension so we can carry more folks and reworking the night lighting for a smoother look. We also have some fun improvements including making the head turn, making the elephant sounds come from the head and other fun goodies.

We launched a KiskStarter for those so inclined to help:

Thanks Trilo. I am just learning Final Cut and had a blast making the video. Not as much fun as making giant elephant but still lots of fun!

Wow, thanks to some great responses! Beau will be better lite, including new additions of black lights and el-wire, a new front 'forest' setting to block the front view of the base vehicle. New leaf springs for the rear, new shocks all around, maybe even some lazer beams coming out of Beau's top hat! 2012 is gonna rock!

bumping this elephant to the top of the list!

We now have at least one new volunteer driver helping out! Thank you! One more possibility!

We move into the warehouse to start reconstruction on Beau next week!

Beau Le'Phant, the biggest, pinkest elephant you've ever seen, unless you've seen bigger, will be calling the corner of 7:00 and Alyssum home in 2012. Stop by and say hello.

Are you not looking for additional people to help out with the camp?
