October Train - "Phantasmagoria" - SIGN UPS OPEN!


THEME: "Phantasmagoria"

**As of 1st July The Brat Pack departs on the 1st of the month!!**

Phantasmagoria (also fantasmagorie, fantasmagoria) was a form of theatre which used a modified magic lantern to project frightening images such as skeletons, demons, and ghosts onto walls, smoke, or semi-transparent screens, frequently using rear projection. The projector was mobile, allowing the projected image to move and change size on the screen, and multiple projecting devices allowed for quick switching of different images. Invented in France in the late 18th century, it gained popularity through most of Europe (especially England) throughout the 19th century.

1. a shifting series of phantasms, illusions, or deceptive appearances, as in a dream or as created by the imagination.
2. a changing scene made up of many elements.
3. an optical illusion produced by a magic lantern or the like in which figures increase or diminish in size, pass into each other, dissolve, etc.

This can be an awesome and exciting theme!! We look forward to your parts!

You may make Tagger, Full Size, CU, QP's whatever you like - just be sure to let your visitors know what your items are!  Please state on your previews whether they are FULL SIZE or TAGGER and CU or PU. *s*
You may call your kit/items anything you wish just so long as it fits into the theme.

Scrap Kits: 3 papers and 12 elements MINIMUM
Quickpages: 4 MINIMUM
NO PAPER PACKS (unless they are CU)
CU: 4 papers/overlays/elements MINIMUM (unless a script or action then 1 of is permitted)

We are trying to make our train one our visitors enjoy riding on, and some become disheartened to find a freebie very minimal. So we would like to offer them something to keep them coming back! And freebies are advertising for our PTU work.

NOTE: You have to be very careful with what you call things or use for supplies due to copyrights. You may NOT name your kits the same as that of a TV, book or movie etc.
