This year I'm building an outside "room" out of visqueen on my porch. It will (hopefully) be pitch black, and illuminated only by black light. I have a fogger and was planning to fog it too. The area will be ventilated so that I won't choke to death inside. Has anyone used both fog and blacklights before? My goal with the fog is to further reduce visibility.

Someone tell me why this won't work. :)

Fog and Blacklights are no problem, and yes you will reduce visibility. Now fog and strobe lights, that is just disorienting and trippy, I use that effect in one of my "hallways" in my maze.

I tried it once and wasn't impressed with the results but I wasn't trying to limit vision either....I have an organ that is lightly misted with fluorescent paint to give it a glow effect (with blacklight ) and I had fog piped into the top section but you really couldn't see it that well.....In that application it wasn't worth the effort....ZR

yeah i use fog & black lights! are you going to have uv reactive props for the black lights?

if you want to reduce visibility, don't reduce it too much ... you don't want any tots getting hurt

amk
Yes. I purchased a bunch of these masks which will be suspended from the ceiling on a FCG type mechanism so they move up and down. I'm going to let my kids paint 'blood' on the masks with the deepest red black light paint I can find. I also purchased a bunch of UV reactive eyeballs and those will also be floating in there. I may throw a non-UV reactive spider on the crank too just to bump into people.

I do this every year for my haunted garage. I open the door and hang dark ripped cloth from the top to bottom so it masks what's inside the garage from the outside. This gives ventilation for the fog machine and it intrigues trick-or-treaters with some fog escaping from under the cloth as people enter and leave. I have black-lights, but I also have a huge grim reaper inside where the bowl of candy is and I have him illuminated with a white stream of light, much like you would do in the dark with a flash light by holding it up under your chin to illuminate your face. This offsets the black-lights just enough. I also have a lot of other things in there as well that are independently lit ... so it all works together. The problem I've encountered is the little kids ... they usually do not like to enter, so I keep a bowl of candy outside for those not daring enough to see whats inside.
