Behind The Curtain : Halloween 2015 – The “Big Reveal”

Well it’s been a crazy couple of days with the opening of the Halloween Room. It’s been great to see everyone come in so excited and wanting to see EVERYTHING! And now I get to show you the results of all our hard work this year commonly known as the “Big Reveal” (if you like decorating shows). This year we have been able to post quite a few pictures on this website under Store Tour along with a beautiful video that tries to hit all the major highlights. I wanted to showcase the smaller details, some things that might get missed if you’re rushing through trying to grab the last skeleton mouse!

First, let’s go back in time. Remember this?


Here’s what it looks like now.

Then there was this area which now looks like this:

Here’s this room…


And now it looks something like this:

And for the last room that this was taken in:




Here’s what happened in there:









Whew! That was a marathon post! There’s just so much to see, it’s impossible to show everything. Pictures don’t do it justice, though, so if you’re in the area I strongly suggest coming by and checking it out for yourself! If there’s anything you’d like a closer look at, please let me know in the comments.

    Love your Halloween tent! Hoping I can visit next year, what are dates it remains open? Do you sell any Halloween items online?

    I LOVE the shadow boxes and spinning Tarot. Any tips on how to build these at home?

    • Sylvr Sharp February 27, 2016 at 9:02 am - Reply

      Thanks, Crystal! The shadowboxes were silhouettes cut out of adhesive vinyl (contact paper) that were then stuck to light weight plexiglass panels. You can find royalty free clip art online and have it blown up to the size you need, trace it onto the vinyl and cut it out. They were then hung on monofilament with a fan behind that moved the plexi which caused the movement. The spinning tarot was made by glueing cards to a wire armature that was hung from a spinner like you would use for a disco ball. Find a heavy gauge wire to create a tornado shape, using monofilament to support the coils so they don’t hang too low. Hope that helps! Happy haunting!

    I live in Michigan, but would like to buy some items for Halloween. How do I order items from you that you sell from various Halloween artists?
