See, I am used to working in entertainment, production and live shows. I LOVE haunting so if i could join the two together and be successful at it, i would ultimately be at my happiest. My haunt is big and gets thousands of people, so i know it is outgrowing itself fast, not to mention the neighbors that HATE us LOL. So yeah....i definitely want to go pro. :)
Yup. Did it twice and it worked fine. I put the straw and trigger in a bowl of acetone and the foam was gone within seconds. Then i poured a little into the nozzle on the can and let it sit and it ate away all the foam before it set. You have to do it before it sets up.
There is nothing I want more than to open a haunted attraction. I know I could handle it, do well at it, stress the F out constantly and still enjoy it. Why not love what you do? To me there is nothing better than to have a passion for your work, do well and be successful. It isn't for everyone, but i know it's for me!
I really like what you are doing here! The green screen, the process, the edit, the cobwebs, all of it! I personally liked the webs without the spray but if i had to use some of it, maybe just a little in a few corners.
Well i buy my spandex from www.spandexhouse.com and I have been using it for many many years doing special events. I get it for $8/ yd and it comes in 60" width or 120" for $18/yd.
The spandex stretches though, making it very big and is very useful in different locations. Here is a more direct link if you are interested in trying it.
If you buy the 60", get the matte milliskin variety. Spandex...
Why thank you Raven's Hollow! I would love to see some pics, especially of that cling wrap. Cheesecloth can be pricey and rather frustrating to attach to chicken wire. My only concern would be how the foam actually adheres to it. Please do share!
Yeah the umbrella makes for a really great shape to start with. And those concrete forms are a really really good idea actually.
I'm thinking 8' and 10' tall for my shrooms. I plan to buy a spray foam system as soon as i can pull the money together and make my form out of pvc and chicken wire. That concrete form though.....hmmmmmm that might be really great.
I want to literally recreate this
I was planning on using white spandex for the underside of the shroom cap as it glows very...
I love those ideas by the way Saki.Girl. Alice in Wonderland is sooooo much fun to be creative with. Tie that with darkness and it doesn't get much better. I am actually trying to figure out how to incorporate what i did into my haunt somehow. Not sure I can yet. Maybe one day. I do look forward to what you come up with!
haha well, i am really new to you tube but all the peeps from this forum have gotten me really into it. They all have a ton of tutorials, are all incredibly supportive and have become great friends. Did you see that your haunt was blogged at Pumpkinrot?
Hey! I too am going to be building giant mushrooms. Maybe we can brainstorm together?
Thanks for the shout outs guys! I DID just do a build for an Alice in Wonderland event that happened last week. It was not a dark theme but it could inspire you for sure. I built a Wonderland sign, a Cheshire cat, some abstract queens guards, a This Way That Way sign and a massive Heart as well as a room of decor.
I just blogged about it here:...
