I only got one RGB light out this year. It's the red light on the boarded up window. I spread myself too thin this year and never got my lighting scheme worked out. I've got two RGB DMX floods built and about 15 single color LED DMX spots, but ran out of time to use them effectively. The spots are single color only because I had not received my new RGB modules for the spots (I ordered them too late).
I used AllenH's plastic corpsing technique
to build the big 10ft talk Jack Reaper. That entire prop is made out of PVC, chicken wire, and thick contractor grade black trash bags. I have been building this guy every year out of monster mud for about 4 or 5 years. In the past I've always had to rip the prop apart due to the weight and size. It was just too heavy to move and would not fit through my gate. This year I pulled him down in one piece by myself and store him in the backyard. It took me like 10 minutes to take down.
Here's a daytime photo of Jack.
Here's a picture from about 4 years ago showing his PVC frame. It sits on two metal t-posts. This prop survived 70 mph winds with no damage at all this year. I was pretty happy how well everything held up in that storm.
