    Good god!

    The bride we have now looks so stupid compared to the previous brides. Seeing cool/creepy brides on the left, then we see the modern herp derp version. Hahaha!

    WHAT A JOKE!

    Please Disneyland, bring back the previous bride!

I think what they need to do to make it work is have her completely fade out between lines and have the lighting change to briefly show that it is just the dummy, then have her fade back in to show the ghost manifesting itself in front of you. They may need to move her back a few feet so you can get a longer view though.
    Thanks for pointing this out. I've wondered what effect they're going for since the lack of any relief features such as eyes and nose like on the other character projections (both Leotas and the singing busts) is completely missing.

    changing the bride from what it once was takes a bit of the creepiness of the character. The old Bride had a dark face with glowing red eyes. It almost made her look demonic. while her heart beats ominously through the attic. It gives you one last chill before entering the light-hearted section of the ride. The New bride has a more human face and speaks. We know that she was at least human once and retains some human qualities making her less unknown. what scares us the most is the unknown and the old bride gives that off. If someone never knew about the story of the bride there imagination can create their own version of it. Constance is given a back story and doesn't leave much to the imagination as the old bride did.

    the second to the left has got to be the most creepiest. just think of sleeping one night and waking up to find a dark figure in the corner with those glowing round eyes staring blankly at you. I just shudder at the thought.

    Goes to show you that simple is sometimes better.

    It's pure CAMP.

    This was an ernest attempt to bring the bride into the 21st century and raiser the creepy factor. But the darn effect is just so dumb! It's the same as those bad student horror films that take themselves too seriously, you laugh and it's campy.

    Speaking of student film, check out my film project on indiegogo.com! It's a film that is deliberately campy and shamelessly chessy! You'll love it! :End Plug:

    The third bride from the left has got to be the scariest!

    From a distance it looked scarier... And with the sound effects it made you a little paranoid of your surroundings. When you look at an image like that, it is a bit startling if you don't know what's coming your way. But I suppose I should have been expecting it because of the topic. :P

    Earlier incarnations always struck me as vaguely man-ish in physique or doll-ish in face. But I always loved the glowing heart. The projected version strikes me as too literal somehow, leaving so little to the imagination & draining her of spookiness. I don't completely hate the current version, but it seems like she could be AWESOME and scarier, with some pretty simple fixes.

    IMO the bride before this one was much creepier. This picture just made me bust of laughing. Crossed eye'd and mouth open, LMAO!.

    And she is cross-eyed too (at least in the OP pic) tho I suppose mentioning this fact could get my post deleted.

    When "Married with Children" was cancelled, Bud Bundy became an imagineer!

    Long-Forgotten: Here Comes the Bride, Part Two: "Beating Heart"

    Long-Forgotten: Here Comes the Bride, Part Three: Round Eyes and the "Middle" Brides

    I think they could make Constance better by making her speak less. It's hard to be afraid of such a chatterbox. I'd space her jokes out so you were only likely to hear one per trip through the attic.
