    Haunted mansion fans: Everything disney's haunted mansion
    Hey Everyone... I know there are still quite a bit of Haunted Mansion Fans out there. Just wanted to set up a thread were everyone could meet see people's "Haunted Mansion" Props, have a place of help on design ideas and lighting...

    I have always like the Haunted Mansion... Its just enough spookiness for adults as well as children. Its always Really Magical to see all of the special effects in the Mansion... Not many people know how easy it is to actually create your own professional Mansion. I have always looked at design as looking at one peace at a time. What mostly gets people messed up is thinking about all the things that need to get done. It becomes overwhelming! if you are able to pick one part of that thing you are building.... FOCUS on just that and continue to manipulating it until it is just how you like it! Everything has a shape... Square, egg shaped, ob long, tube, imagine that which you are trying to make and build it peace by peace looking at each part of the structure as a familiar shape.. Build the shape, go to the next one, build it, then put the two peaces together. Simply focus...

    I have been working on my own peace Haunted Mansion work with re-designing my office into a large Disneyland Tribute "Pretty large area!!!" I have had to convert two rooms to one. The main room was my office but have taken and knocked out a wall between the office and one of my 6 bedrooms to enlarge the area enough to make all of the props that will be part of this room.

    When first working on this project I did not have this in mind... 3 paintings were Changing Portrait :Master Gracey, and stretching portraits Tightrope Bell, and Dear beloved George. I just finished the second Stretch portraits, Dynamite, and Quicksand. After measuring and sizing the second two paintings to fitting the room I have had to go back to the first two and re-do them. Its a pain but after painting the first two I have learned some techniques that will make them even better!!! Master Gracey should be fine for my room but I might end up repainting that also.

    also props I am making for my HM room will be the Haunted Chairs, Conservatory Coffin, The candle holding Gargoyles, Working Madam leota Crystal ball with Spell book, Working singing busts, and The stairing busts. The entry will look much like the entry of HM also have some other paintings I have been working, are not part of the Haunted Mansion, But will be Breathtaking!!!

    As I continue to build props I will take photos and post them for everyone to see...

    Also for any of you HM fans... It has been difficult to find photos of the portraits to do my paintings.... These last two paintings were extremely difficult!!! I pretty much have what I need now except I am having trouble with the Dueling portraits... There are some good photos out there but none are very clear on the faces. I am trying to find one that shows the faces better.... Also Leota's spell book... I think I have found everyone of the ones posted on the internet but none of them that have the lettering clear enough to detail. If there is anyone that might have some good clear closeups of these I could really use them... Anyone going to Disneyland and has a good enough camera to get a couple of photos of them (Faces) and on the spell book, the detailed red lettering... That would be great!!!

    Enclosed are two of the Stretch paintings I have finished and are ready for framing... Once I have all 4 of these done I will be doing a YouTube video of all 4 for your viewing...

    If any of you have some great props you have made for Disneylands Haunted Mansion or what to share to others your great memories of the HM... or you are needing help on building something HM... Let us know... Someone should know how to give you a hand!!! Cheers Friends!

    Absolutely amazing. I'll be in this thread a lot, since I'm also doing a HM themed office so we can exchange ideas!

    Hey everyone... Working on the second two of the Stretch paintings and very excited!!! I will post photos soon. I am winging the Spells book it will not have the same detail as HM since I can not make out the red lettering so just have to wing it... The rest of the book I will be cutting out of wood and detailing it carving the wood... should come out looking pretty close to Disney's HM... Will be using this on the table with a short stand the video camera will be inside the stand so once I am finished with leota's Crystal ball it will project the image onto the bust I have for the prop.. should be BRILLIANT!!!

    For the Spell Book, the words are Madame Leotas incantation(s). The First line reads: "Serpents and spiders tail of a rat....." So on. After that down left side is: "Rap on a table...." "Creepies and crawlies...." Right side is: "Goblins and goulies..." Wizards and witches..." Hope that helps. Ummm yeah, huge Mansion fan here.

    Here is my take on the Madame Leota crystal ball:



    I didn't have a second projector so I decided to incorporate her (and the stretching portraits) into a frame. This video was taken before I antiqued the frame to make it look old.

    BTW, the black kitty in the background was hit by a car recently and now only has 3 legs .
