Ideas From The
ScaryGuys Haunted Web!


From Bob Sprong -
Try using malabu lighting, If they're too bright, you CAN use a dimmer in series. All the kits are relatvely cheap, and the plastic is so flexible, you can cut the shades into 2/3s of a circle and they still hold on well. perfect to illuminate a graveyard!
Try cellophane gift wrap as gels or filters. This stuff comes in a wide variety of colors. And you get eough to last you the rest of your "unatural life" and you never have to find colored bulbs again! Trim out part of the lens bowl of the walkway lite, and you can use a gobo to cast shadows! I plan to buy a set and use bungee cords to set up floodlights in the trees for a hunted graveyard. (Need big trees, saplings suck.) Just wrap around a bungee around a branch, (knot it to take up slack,) then, slip the floodlight stake between the bungee and the branch. It'll light up the branches real nice, cool with gels! The wire is pretty forgiving, as it's ment to be buried. Great cable to use to wire up electrical stuff in props, use as signal wire to solonoids, even speaker wire! ($8.00 = 100' "Haunt" Depot, Lowe's, Builder's Sq. etc.) If it's black, it's got to be good!


From Dean Rohs -
The Wheel Of MISfortune - I thought you might be interested in a project I did several years ago that the kids really loved. Nothing special or high-tech, but fun, none the less. I called it "The Wheel Of MISfortune", based on the similar game show. I used an old round card table as my wheel. I painted it white and divided it up into eight equal wedges. Then I attached various gruesome body parts...eyes...arms...a brain...a foot. I splattered the whole thing with blood and even added a little clicker at the top.
The concept is simple. It's the game where EVERYBODY loses. . I painted signs I stuck in the yard with sayings like "Spin The Wheel...Lose An Organ' and, "Everyone's A Loser" I dressed up like a morbid game show host and ran the show. What's great about this is it's morbid humor and it's interactive ~~ the trick or treaters get to choose their own fate. Every year people ask when the "Wheel" is coming back. This year I displayed a coffin big enough for me to jump out of and a working guillotine complete with victim and reseverable head. This works great with a strobe light and a couple CD's playing horror movie theme songs.
