The flashlight handle is black with the word Halloween and pictures of a skull and a jack o’ lantern printed in white. The handle is about 7 inches long and holds two size C batteries. The cap is orange and is about 3 inches high and about 2 inches in diameter. The projector comes with three lenses: an orange lens with a black jack o’ lantern, a yellow lens with a black bat and a purple lens with the words “Trick or Treat” in black. A clear label with “Signature Designs (HK) Ltd, Ningbo, China, 14-121-02, 05/2014” printed in white is on the side of the handle opposite the orange on/off switch.
