    Default Arkham Asylum 2019 (Party Decorations)

    Arkham Asylum 2019 (Party Decorations)
    So, I finally decided to pull the trigger and have a Halloween party. I've always wanted to, but I live alone and am self conscious about the cleanliness of my house. I decided "life's too short [redacted] it!"

    I'm a huge Batman fan both metaphorically and literally (too many carbs) so I decided on Arkham Asylum for the criminally insane as my theme.

    I don't particularly want people going into the bedrooms so I decided that I would keep the doors closed and decorate the doors to look like cells. I have five doors (including closets) so each can be the cell of a major Batman villain.

    My plan for the doors is three parts. The simplest part is a room number which will be stick on numbers from the craft store. The really cool part will be a fake bared window. I plan to put a picture of various Villains matted in to a padded cell back drop.

    The third item is where I decided to start. Cells would obviously need locks!! none of the doors in questions have locks. I decided to make a fake lock to attach (temporarily) right below the handle to look like an old antique lock. You have to start some where...

    After making some sketches and deciding on a design I started construction. I made a master out of wood and polystyrene. Then I made a mold so I could cast enough for all the doors. Here are photos of the stages of construction...
