Haunted House Creation

February 11, 2010


When I opened my own haunted house for the first time this last Halloween, I admittedly had no idea what I was in store for. I have an abandoned barn on the back of my property, and I thought that it would be fun for the local kids to have some extra amusement during the holiday. After getting all of the proper licenses and permits, I set to work renovating the barn.

Originally my plan was to set up all of the decorations and create the entire thing myself, which I soon realized would be impossible. I ended up hiring a few of the local high schoolers, and it took us two months of solid work to have the place up and running in time for the 31st. We pulled out all of the stops—from hiring people to dress up in full makeup to purchasing a low lying fog machine. Despite the extensive work, it was worth it when a good portion of the town ended up coming out during the three week span we were open.

The Whole Package

When I tell people what I do for a living, my answer is that I am a claims adjuster for an insurance company. While this may be the way that I pay the bills, my true passion is what I do moonlighting. On weekends I DJ at several clubs around the Des Moines area and also Emcee weddings and other galas.

In the years that I have been DJing, I’ve learned that people expect more than just quality music. Part of your job is to create an electric atmosphere that gets people excited and promotes sociality at the get-together. This is why I bring a variety of accoutrements to supplement the music, including American DJ fog and my own auxiliary lighting.

Holiday Fog Party

fog partyWhen you are planning a party, it is vital to make preparations well in advance and include a variety of entertainment and special features. We’ve all had to endure those parties that simply have a table of stale hors d’oeuvres and old music from the 80’s blaring. As I was planning my latest Christmas party, I wanted to be sure that my guests would remember it, and for the right reasons.

In my experience, one surefire method to creating a great party is instituting a theme. While I was conjuring up my vision of the party, I new that I wanted to have a unique ambiance. I outfitted my home with somewhat traditional holiday decorations, but I decided to add a fog machine and transform it into a holiday fog party. Although I am slightly biased, I think that the party was a hit.

Getting Through the Fog

generatoerFog and smoke is great for creating an eerie effect and setting the perfect mood for movies or parties. While the purpose of a smoke generator is, obviously, to produce smoke, this can have some adverse consequences, particularly when it comes to smoke detectors. Having too much smoke in an area for too long can create a problem if you are trying to film subsequent scenes in the same location as well.

While this may seem like a unsolvable quandary, there is hope. The obvious solution to this problem is to use Fast Fog or smoke, which will quickly dissipate. This will ensure that there are no problems with detection equipment and that you can get on with your business when you are done with the fog.

Setting the Stage

giglightsIn the past few years I have developed a passion for attending live music events. There is something about the mass of people gathering with an appreciation for a particular artist or style of music that is exhilarating. While live albums and DVDs are a tolerable substitute, they can’t compare to actually being there.

For me, there are two aspects that can either make or break a concert: the sound quality and the stage show. One of the perks of witnessing a larger act is that they have the resources to use state of the art sound equipment and put on a spectacular show. The best shows, in my opinion, combine creative lighting and smoke machines to create a unique ambiance.

Manmade Phenomena

fogAs I was driving to work today, a thick layer of fog suddenly descended upon me. After a few minutes of fighting to gain visibility, the fog suddenly lifted and revealed a majestic sun rise with shades of orange, pink and lavender. While I pondered the miraculous nature of Mother Nature, I realized that humans have been ingenious enough to recreate many of these amazing phenomena.

Creating any sort of weather used to be a thing of science fiction, but today it is a reality. Making fog for stage shows and home parties is commonplace and simple for anyone with a basic machine. With the help of crystals and other reflective elements, we can even recreate the stunning colors of the rainbow.

Keep It Cold

fog_chiller_intakeEveryone has seen or been in the midst of a fog machine, but many people don’t know how they work. Fog machines combine boiling water with some form of cooling agent to create steam, which the machine then emits. There are several types of fog machines, but if you want low-hanging fog, you’ll need to use a fog chiller.

Chilling the fog prevents it from rising and ensures that it lingers low to the ground. Old style machines had to use dry ice or liquid nitrogen to create this effect, but now there are models that run on simple ice cubes. These new innovations have made fog machines safer and more user-friendly.

partyThere is something about fog that creates the perfect atmosphere for a party, particularly in the fall season. Party fog helps create an eerie ambiance for a Halloween bash or a haunted house. There are multiple options to choose from when implementing fog at your party.

The most traditional option for fog is dry ice, which is a solid form of carbon dioxide. Although this method works, it can be dangerous and takes a lot of effort. A more practical option is fog machine. This will ensure that you have fog throughout your party, and gives you more control is choosing where to disperse it.

Last-Minute Party Plans

fog-halloweenIn previous weeks we’ve discussed the spooky ambience that a fog machine can lend to your Halloween festivities. It’s always a good idea to keep your guests on edge with some low-lying fog and a soundtrack that’s suitable for the season. But we neglected to mention one of the most popular visual effects that can take your Halloween party to the next level.

Think about the way witches’ cauldrons are depicted on TV and in the movies. They’re always bubbling with slightly menacing liquids, and there’s a disturbing green fog emanating from within. Why not replicate this eerie effect for your own devilish ends? You can use fog Halloween trickery to turn your punchbowl into an authentic witches’ brew. The contents might not be lethal, but they should certainly be potent.
