    Default Terra at Transworld 2010!

    I had a fun time this year. I was overwhelmed last year so this year was a good trip to study better what was offered. I took lot's of pictures but first...Video:







    There were three companies that I could tell were selling 12 volt lighting systems. A new one called Darklight, Scare Products and MiniSpotlight. Pictured here is the display from MiniSpotlight. Like Scare Products, you have a wealth of choices for the 12 volt lighting. They also have a strobing unit that they used for three of the UV lights and it made the Dot Room that much better. Scare Products also had a 12 volt fake fluorescent shop light.








    Loved the aging effects on this tank. Made by Creature Corps.







    Amazingly these were vacu-form walls that Nightscream Studios fashioned into a walk-in crypt.








    I loved the outlandish and huge decorations from Big Stuff, Inc.








    Masks and cats from Big Stuff, Inc.








    How about this for a robot zombie? Gore Galore.









    Our friend Scourge had his skulls on display at Dapper Cadaver's. Like the dog/creature skeleton on the left? Foam!









    Close-up of Scourge's skulls. They looked so good I got one. I didn't realize it but it's modeled from a real human skull and the copy is so real that there is no way you'd tell the difference. I would know, I have a bunch of real human skulls buried in the backyard.









    Remember last year when Night Frights teased us with more scares for his Ghost Busts? Well, he succeeded. He had a séance table that had a skeleton pop out of the table!

    I wish I took better pictures of the Hell Hallway but Scare Factory did an excellent job here with the zombies coming out of the walls and the entire second half of the hallway buckles and falls towards you.






    I just loved the haunting beauty of this static prop. By Steve Petals Studios.







    This web wall was a marvel to see. For three days Minion's Web just kept adding more and more webs. I took this picture on Sunday.






    Right up my alley for this year's theme. But.....GRR!, my camcorder flipped out so I missed getting footage of this but there is fiber optic sparks, strobes, fog and the cables are air whips. Then it fell towards you. By Edge Designs and Theme Decor.






    I bought one of these!!! It's a cattle prod lit with bright LEDS and a loud speaker with the exact sound. I can't wait to use this on the kiddies. They also had a terrific sounding safe chainsaw. Made by Spookyprops.com.






    I took this picture for you UnOrthoDox. The Tikis and the the I-beam is made of foam. Made by Scare Products.







    This was cool. He wears 12v gloves hooked up to a battery pack and then touches two metal swords together and they spark like crazy. Made by Shot in the Dark Scare Tools.






    I know you saw the other spider in the video but here's an up close shot. The detail was amazing and I had a hard time looking at it. I really hate spiders and this didn't help. Made by Dark Raven Designs.






    Nethercraft had several of these steampunk vacu walls.







    This was a neat idea. You paint this tooth coloring onto your teeth like nail polish. I bought a dirty yellow, black, silver (robot) and fluorescent orange. Called Fantastic Teeth and made by NuDent.

    Loved the novel tombstone designs by Haunted Enterprises.







    Gore Galore came up with a fast way of making a steel drum look super gory. Put a Barrel Topper on it, LOL!







    Another wicked awesome prop by Edge Designs and Theme Decor. Like the pole, the Power Panel hums, strobes, whips, smokes and flies open.






    The idea of having dozens of skele's on the wall looked really good. This was actually a gate for a lunging tyrannosaurus. Scare Factory.







    This is for the super geeky animatronic builders here. You get a animatronic body frame that is very adjustable and upgradeable and you throw a costume on it. I also took this picture to show you an idea that we all could do. The monster here rocked the cage back and forth. The bottom of the cage is actually sitting on a pivot point. Looked really easy to do. Animatronic frame made by AllScare.com







    This is just a wicked costume! Hauntatorium Studios.








    At the show, The Darkness owner made this display and was a good way to see in bright light how detailed his haunt is. So, since I brought that up, let's look at The Darkness pictures...







    Thursday night we went to check out The Darkness. This spooky lady was in the queue line.








    This endless hallway was fantastic.






    Here's a sewer endless hallway.

    Good idea here. To tone down the brightness of a fluorescent light...spray paint it!







    I discovered a cool trick they do to add grime to wall. They throw in a boatload of sawdust into their paint. They also like using urethane to give it that horrible gloss.






    Another neat shot of the wall detailing.







    I can't tell you how excited I was to see the changes they did with 3D section. This was a fantastic illusion with the ChromaDepth glasses on.






    This was the floor!















    Cracked me up seeing such an evil chair as the make-up chair. In the make-up room.






    Brilliant idea. They had a very small room that was lit with blacklight so the actors working the 3D section could accurately put on their fluorescent make-up.

    How about this for a workshop!







    Grim laundry.








    When props die....







    I went to three classes at Transworld. How to Detail your Haunt, Designing to a Theme and this picture was taken at the Monster Overload! Creating Huge Creatures.







    Another shot taken at the Monster Overload! class. Eric Lowther makes a support structure using chicken wire and electrical conduit. Covers it with cheesecloth and then covers that with Spray Foam. Shaves it into shape, covers it with Liquid Nails and then paints.






    Would you believe this was our view from the hotel?!!!





    My haul. I got three fluorescent skeletons from Big stuff. A fluorescent gate topper. Makeup and cheat books from Wolfe Face Art (that stuff rocks!), a Scourge skull (pride and joy), Firefly Lightning Controller, 500 glow necklaces from Nicaboyne, Cd's from Poison Props and Gore Galore, half mask from Hauntatorium Studios, Detailing DVD from The Darkness, Axe Killer from Hirez00, 4 colors of Fantastic Teeth, Creature gloves from Zagone Studios, safe cattle prod from Spooky Props and a latex appliance from CFX.

    I'm not done shopping.... Now, I'm going to go through all my catalogs and whine to the hubby that I want to buy more stuff. (I've got him wrapped around my finger
