I use chicken wire for body forms held up with 1 1/2 in PVC on a stake in the ground. I add a cross fitting on top of about 5 foot of pipe then a shot junk to mount the head and or mask and two ten inch junks to mount the arms (pool noodles) and hands.
I can see where distance and lighting would be very important with the "ghost". Other wise people are going to ask why you didnt get it done.
Cool... how about putting glow or blacklight paint on the outer edge. I think in the dark, by itself, it would look unfinished. You would need a light on the background or it wouldn't look transparent??????
We're talking about using these in our haunted trail, just hoping we can make them look as good as this. One concern we've come up with is if they start to rust. We're considering spray painting them with white or silver to seal them. I think they'd look really cool with some fog and lights.
Would work well if you used it in conjunction with a sign that either counts down or draws attention to your haunt. Placing it behind the sign at a decent distance will allow it to be seen when people look at your sign, but not so close up that they think you didn't finish the project. Would of course have to be for day time use.
So i was searching the web for some cool prop ideas and i came across a super cool how-to, and im sure for most of us this would be a cool last minute prop, since ALOT of us have pounds of chicken wire, sorry if this was posted before
