  1. Prop Showcase: A pretty cool failed attempt at a Pepper's Ghost

    Halloween Props
    Okay, if you have a few minutes to read this, and watch my little video, some of you might find this entertaining. Although some of you might agree that I’m every bit as dumb as I look. In any event, here it is. My failed attempt at a Pepper’s Ghost, from many years ago. I though I would post...
  2. Mechanical: Creating Mausoleum Pepper's Ghost effect using 3 axis skull

    Halloween Props
    So, I've always wanted to do a Pepper's ghost effect but don't want to do projection as I like the more realistic look you get with projecting real objects (ala animatronic ghosts in the Haunted Mansion). With that said, it seems to me the effect would be difficult to pull off outside using the...
  3. Lighting: Haunted Mansion Pepper's Ghost effect achieved without 45 degree angled glass?

    Halloween Props
    Disney's Haunted Mansion, as most of us know, houses the world's largest known Pepper's Ghost effect in its Ballroom scene. One of my all time favorites. However, something puzzles me. If I remember correctly, most descriptions of Pepper's Ghost effect implementations emphasize a 45 degree tilt...
  4. Electronic/Software: Affordable High Lumen Projector

    Halloween Props
    I did a Pepper's ghost a couple years back and it was acceptable, but not great. The problem is that the projector I used just wasn't nearly bright enough. When I priced out higher lumen projectors I came away with some serious sticker shock - $400+. Anyone have any ideas that won't break the bank?
  5. Electronic/Software: Pepper's Ghost 2 Parter

    Halloween Props
    Two questions: First off, I was wondering if anyone has any experience setting up a Pepper's Ghost with an LCD or LED or Plasma tv? The projector isn't really going to work for me in the situation I want to apply it. Secondly, what videos do you like for Pepper? I have found...
  6. Static: Condensation on Plexiglass - Pepper's Ghost

    Halloween Props
    Hi everybody. Tonight I did a test set-up for my (tiny) graveyard. I am still working out a very basic Pepper's Ghost (with prop), and I noticed I had a lot of condensation building up on the glass as the night went on. I think this must be a very common problem. Does anybody have any tips? I...

  8. Static: Help with Pepper's Ghost for my ROOF!

    Halloween Props
    Hi there! I was wondering if someone could help me figure a way for Pepper's Ghost to appear on my roof. Any and all suggestions would be grateful! I've also included a pic of the front of my house (taken during Hurricane Irene so please forgive the water) so you could see where I'd like to...
  9. Other: Inexpensive Plexiglass?

    Halloween Props
    For illusions like Pepper's Ghost and the bottomless pit, I need something like plexiglass. Plexiglass is pretty expensive though. I see that Wal-mart has relatively cheap poster frames that have thin plexiglass or plastic that I could use. It occurs to me that if the whole frame costs $10...
  10. Electronic/Software: Little Leota

    Halloween Props
    I grew up near Disneyland, CA and my best memory is always Little Leota when exiting the Haunted Mansion ("Hurry back...."). I know the seance scene of Madame Leota is always a hit, but I would love to recreate Little Leota. There is a absolutely wonderful recreation by graphixeduc8or, but I...
