This is a silly idea I’ve had for years…to somehow create a back story for the giant, scary candy corn in the yard. Of course, per classic horror movies/comic books, the basic explanation for any mutant anything is some kind of toxic spill. So…
The original candy corn gang plus the still-mutating mutant, but much smaller, candy corn.
A daytime view of the goo…with the bag and candy corn stuck in the toxic spill.
Mutant candy corn on the rise.
So, I rigged up a black light to shine down on this mess, and some LED lights inside of the bucket. The bucket glows on and off, while the toxic spill is perpetually lit…at least at night.
