Just when you think you’ve seen it all from Spirit Halloween they roll out another high quality animated prop for Halloween 2017. Yesterday Spirit unveiled the video for the 5 Ft Levitator Girl on their Youtube page.
Basically it’s a possessed girl who levitates in the air. She doesn’t say anything but she does scream which is a little creepy. The Levitator Girl is just over 5′ long and weights almost nine pounds. According to Spirit the prop will ship in late July.
The Levitator Girl retails for $179.99 on SpiritHalloween.com. That’s pretty expensive for a prop. I’m really on the fence about this one. I think it’s a great idea but I really want to see it operate. I want to see how it operates from all angles to make sure you can’t see the mechanism underneath it that lifts the prop before I drop $180 on it. It looks great from the angle it’s shot at on the Youtube video but up close it could be a different story. I also want to see the face up close as well. It looks pretty lifelike in the pictures and video but it could be a situation where you can put a more realistic mask on her to really jazz it up and make it a lot more scary than it already is.
I might have to wait until after Halloween to bring her home if that’s the case. Props are always cheaper on November 1 when the big box Spirit locations are eager to reduce inventory and drastically drop prices to keep from having to put props and costumes into storage into next year. The risk with that strategy is if you aren’t there the moment the stores open the door the day after Halloween the bet stuff is gone within minutes and your plan can backfire. Spirit usually offers 20% discounts on their site year round so you could get the prop for around $145.
