Haunted Mansion Lenticular Pin Collection

by on Mar.22, 2011, under Syndicated from the Web

When Disneyland was celebrating its 50th Anniversary, the Disney Catalog came out with some wicked cool Haunted Mansion items, including this limited edition pin collection.

Now, I’m not a pin collector, but lenticulars have a very high ranking in this house, so the fact that these were pins quickly became outranked by their cool lenticular status! Honestly, I’m very impressed with these mini-lents….

Now I was all excited to use a fancy-schmancy mouse roll over effect to show you the lenticular pins, but after spending a day trying to figure out why the code wouldn’t work, I learned that WordPress hosted blogs don’t allow mouse roll over effects. Boo! (If I’m incorrect, Internet, pray tell!)

Here’s the Screaming Pop-Up Ghost

Knight on Horseback

Here is my favorite pin. Madame Leota, of course! “Creepies, crawlies….”

Medusa…she’s pretty cool, too!

and finally…the Hat Box Ghost with Crown

Jody Daily, Disney Artist, talked with DoomBuggies.com about the pin set:
“The hatbox ghost actually would have 4 stages (head, eyes, nothing, and eyes again fading back to the head). Leota has three different expressions (closed eyes & mouth, open eyes/closed mouth, open eyes and mouth). The other three pins have only two stages, but on the screaming “pop-up” head portrait we tried to line up their eyes exactly so that the eyes will stay the same. GEEKY!”

These little suckers were difficult to photograph, so I apologize for the quality of the images. Video would be nice, and perhaps I’ll update this post with a video soon. Thanks to my daughter for loaning me her Webkins bat for displaying!
