So, I have some nice alien eggs with lights for the Haunted Garage. However, I am running out of time and need some sort of addition to that scene. I thought about just something on the wall behind them. If I had time I'd build or paint a background door or alien wall or something. I am not opposed to buying something. I just need that extra something to finish off the scene. Any ideas?

Quick and easy maybe a black or lime green plastic table cloth from the dollar store and a green light. Fog machine would be cool along with a green light.

if you're in a pinch for time, keep it simple. I like witchy poo's idea... green table cloth and a fog machine with some green light... make it look like some kind of incubation chamber or hatchery.

I've been placing black painter's plastic around the garage to make a maze. It's 10'x25' and in one scene I've painted spider webs on each wall of a hallway using green and orange fluorescent paint. I think the green paint under a black light would give you something to work with. The paint sticks well to the plastic and could help you fill the void.

You could lay down your plastic backdrop of choice (or a drop cloth), position some creepy cloth over that and use a couple of cans of Greatstuff foam to build up some organic-looking depth. Foam should adhere to CC, just paint and hang.

I love the idea. I might try to do an Alien scene one of these years.

I think some of the black corrugated drain pipe could be worked in to look like some of the organic shapes.

If your scene is part of a human base that's been overrun, you could use yellow rotating lights or other strobes for disorienting, emergency atmosphere.
