Bike lights as Halloween props?

OK, this has nothing to do with commuting, but I thought I’ll post it anyway. Last Sunday, my family and I participated in an event sponsored by our church called “Trunk or Treat”. We basically decorated our vehicles with a Halloween Theme.

As darkness descended, I used my cycling lights for special effects and as spotlights:

My cygolite rover as a spotlight to light up the big ass spider

The NiteRider Dual MiNewts in flashing mode, great strobe lights!

My Cateye front blinky light as a spotlight

I didn’t think of it this year, but next year I will build or modify a bike for this Halloween event, should be fun!

    Yeah, the belly is a 50 gallon bag and the head a 30 gallon bag, they are full of clothes that will be given to the Salvation Army. The legs of the spider are stuff with old newspaper, once Halloween is over, the whole spider will be recycled!
