Holo-Girl (Part 1)

I am going to revisit the "Holo-Phone Girl" (or whatever you want to call her, cool farmer girl doll, etc...) with a series of photos I have. Hoot posted one of our best pictures of her in an earlier post. Early on in our adventures, when we were still worried about gaps, and getting back to our car in time, etc... getting to this figure to get some decent photos almost seemed impossible.

We needed a gap of empty cars large enough ahead of us and behind us to allow us to jump out, run ahead to the living room entrance, then run thru the living room, up the stairs behind 'dad' on the organ, climb up a ladder, take a picture, then run all the way back and hope no new guests were just coming around the corner to the future living room. Phew. Needless to say, early on, we only tried this a couple times I think. But that didnt matter once we started 'staying in' the ride, then we could hang out as long as we wanted with the doll. :)

Anyways, the photo above is of course standing in the stairwell looking back down at 'dad' on the organ. And then the next one here is a little further up that stairwell, still looking down.

And then below is one of me standing on the ladder, looking back down at Hoot, who just happens to be wearing my backpack. You can see the stairs (red carpet) in the top part of the photo. I will probably post three or so pictures in each part after this, I have a total of fourteen to post from my collection, and I know Hoot has plenty more. I also plan on ending this multi-part series with a really awesome video clip that Hoot shot of the doll, from the pathway in front of the ride vehicles. Its a really quick shot, but it is still one of my favorites.

  3. These are great. I'd love a diagram of how you got out and roamed around. I'd love a detailed story of the roaming. The description so far are great, but they leaving me wanting more!

  8. usually red mushroom buttons are cut-offs for power/animation. I think because of the husbands close proximity to the stairwell that would justify the button... AA's on average carry 600-800lbs. of hydrolic pressure - but since his movements are minimal he probably was around 300-400lbs of pressure.
