I know the shrouded body room will be a challenge for the actors, we are planning on having two live shrouds! We have the armerature complete for 6 shrouded bodies already. Some fabric we will cinch, others will be loose. We are going to attach vent motors to a few so they have a swaying motion as well, I think hubby has 2 finihsed. We intend to have 12 shrouded body props and two shrouded actors in the room. It will be tight and meandering, so hopefully that will confuse and create tension. We also use Froggy's Fog scents throughout our haunt, I think this room will need the dreaded Slaughter House, it smells AWFUL!!
You are right, if I add the staked pig heads some need to be really rotting, with maggots and ooze! And more Slaughter House....muwahahahaha....no rotting corpse me thinks??!!
Appreciate your input David, keep them coming!
Thanks, the brains looked awesome, and I think you outdid the original.
Thanks David, those are brains I made using an Allen Hopps YouTube tutorial. He has many good tutorials and ways to make things economically. They look pretty realistic in low light, although mine didn't sink quite like his did, I think maybe I scrunched the tinfoil too tightly?? They turned out well though and were cheap to make, I made 4 and still have silicon left to make more for next year!
Since you are taking photo requests do you have a close-up of the specimen jars in your lab? image 10 at the moment.
Sssh, don't tell anyone the grainy video wasn't intentional. I thought the mixed in white noise effect made it creepier.
Oh thank you David!! The haunt was so much fun this year! We added quite a lot of new things and had some extra support with actors via our sons soccer league and the company I work for helped as well. Many of the volunteers want to come back next year and help out, they have caught the scare actor bug I think! Hopefully we can start to get a stable actor base as we struggle with that, tough to get them to commit. Our video is pretty grainey in parts, it degrades a bit once uploaded to YouTube. We have to work on that aspect, hopefully we can find a dedicated person to look after video next year, we pieced the video together with last minute run through video and BBerry footage. We had people come out from all over the city, many were at local haunts and said ours was the best around! I think we do okay, we rely on word of mouth only, we never contact media, it is a community event for the food bank and the animal rescue charity we foster dogs for. We are so grateful to the people that help us out, without their support it would not be possible to pull this together.
Your video was phenomenal, and I am sure it is 10 times better in person....absolutely one of the best I've seen. I hope this is something you and your family can continue to enjoy for many years to come.
Yes the arhc is a really good addition, just the right balance and size. It looks great, creepy and he is so menacing! Not sure why you would say you are lacking in the artistic side, he is very well done. It is a scuplture! Bet the kids and parents loved it!
Thanks the Archway to the facade was probably my new favorite addition. For many it was the motion activated pop up zombie, but I feel like I am so lacking on the crafty/artisitc side that I take more pride in these than animating props.
Seriously??? OMG that is so unresonable, don't blame you for being choked. Our front yard is very small and we do encroach on our neighbors on one side a bit, not so much with tombstone, but other things. They don't mind at all I knkow we are very lucky and I apprciate their patience. Our cemetery is crowded but I like that look, it can work as well.
