It's "Phantasmagoria" this Halloween!

:: PHANTASMAGORIA ::

With Halloween around the corner the Brat Pack have been super busy with some spooky goodies for you this year!  So for something different we decided to go with Phantasmagoria - a catchy name, but how many know what it actually means? *s*

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.

Meaning:
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.


Such a different yet thrilling theme!
