Doing a Twilight Zone Tower of Terror themed party and had to have a Mystic Seer. Here's how I did it.

Parts included a cigar box, magnet and B-Line strut transom fitting. I happened to have this lying around the house but I'm sure you could make your own with any kind of small spring. Red spray paint and black latex paint.

I spray painted the box red. I painted the fittings black. I didn't want to drill a hole in the top of the box so I hot glued a magnet on top and put the spring on top of that.

I went online and found an image of the Mystic Seer. I adhesive sprayed it on some black card stock paper and cut out. I made the signs for the front of the Seer on Adobe InDesign and used the same black card stock backing. Stars are from the Christmas craft section of Hobby Lobby.

I made some cards with lines from the Nick of Time Twilight Zone episode. I like how the box opens and I can store the cards inside.

Nice prop! Maybe William Shatner will show up at your party. :)
Hopefully in a Gorilla Suit per the other Shatner Twilight Zone episode "Nightmare at 20,000 feet."
Incidentally, not a big Trekkie (wife is), but George Takei also appears in a Twilight Zone episode as a main character.

It would be great fun to do a complete Twilight Zone-themed haunt.

Yea, it looked more like a giant Teddy Bear suit. LOL
I like the creature they made for the re-make of it in the Twilight Zone movie with John Lithgow a LOT better.

:) Interesting, never realized they made a Twilight Zone movie. Worthy of adding to a Christmas List? I know they made new Twilight Zone episodes in the 80's; but they weren't, to me anyway, compelling like the Rod Serling originals--lacked charm and dated (in a bad way, again, IMHO). My wife bought me the original complete Twilight Zone series a few Christmases ago and I love it. She won't watch the episodes with me--too creepy (not me, the story content). :) Good stuff. Spooky but no gore. And thought-provoking for the times. One of the few genres through which Serling could address controversial social issues of his day that the Studios / Sponsors would allow.
