A Phineas and Ferb Halloween (in progress)

by Eric Marcoullier

Last year I scared the crap out of a lot of middle school kids who came trick or treating to our house.  This year we decided to mix it up and do something fun, so we’re having a Phineas and Ferb dance party on our front porch.  I can do a passable Doofenshmirtz voice, so I’m dressing up as him (Yeah, I know, he weighs like a buck thirty.  I’m the result of a horrible De-candy-nator accident.). Jen is going as Lindana (in full 80′s one-hit-wonder gear). We’re going to decorate the porch with a mirror ball and a boom box and, most importantly, a bunch of other Phineas and Ferb characters in costume.

I started last night and here’s what I’ve got so far.

I bought a Pico projector last weekend and spent a couple of hours tracking down good images from last year’s halloween episode, along with Max Modem from the Lindana episode.  You can see Candace peeking out on the left — I learned the hard way how hard it is to do precision cuts with corrugated cardboard. Next up, painting all of them tonight / tomorrow night.

I’ll post the final results the day after Halloween along with a quick writeup on the maker steps.

Love it. I too can mimic Heinz Doofenshmirtz, to my children’s delight. Long live Perry!

What do you mean you do a “passable” imitation? I think it’s spot on, you had me in tears on the camping trip in august. “I just took a dump-inator” = best.line.ever.

Plus we just watched the Phineas and Ferb movie and it lived up to my expectations, I think I laughed harder than the kids.
