Looks great! What was your "fire" source?
Thanks Ghost of Spookie,

I built a PVC frame and attached shiny silver fabric to it. Then aimed an orange florescent bulb at the center and two red florescent bulbs on each side. Two box fans are under the frame pointing up at the fabric.

Happy Haunting!!

That really looks incredible kimcfadd!
I might steal your idea for this season!
Would you be willing to post pics of the inside setup?

Outside of house is almost done. Pretty happy with fire effect and just wanted to share.

HAPPY HAUNTING!!
Absolutely fantastic! I'm going to put my 13 year old son in charge of putting this together since I already have all of the materials from my photography days. Reflective panels? Check. Background stand to hang it on? Check. High output fans to blow the model's hair back or make the sheet wave? Check. Screw in light stands for light box photography? Check.

Only missing the orange and yellow lights.

Here's a few ideas for people wanting to put this together and save some money along the way.

Instead of a reflective sheet, maybe give it a go with emergency heat blankets like this one:

The material is very thin mylar and will flap in the slightest breeze so a small fan could work instead of a box fan. You'd save money twice there!

There could be a difference because the mylar is so reflective as opposed to reflective sheet that mutes the sharpness of the image. Then again, with the way the sheet pops in the breeze, it might not be an issue at all.
