Halloween Prop Menu : Ghost Appears Effect

Ghost Appears Effect

This effect is the most effective at the end of a hallway. As the audience walks down the hallway, they see a wooden-framed mirror on the wall at the end. As they look into the reflection, the image of a ghost appears in the mirror!

For this effect you need to get a two way mirror or a piece of mirrored plexiglass and mount it in the wall at the end of a hallway. Regular plexiglass, with mirrored window tint film will also work.  On the front side of the wall, you need to mount some dim lighting that will be on at all times. To make it look like a real mirror hanging on the wall, you should build a wooden frame around the 'mirror'. Behind the wall is a ghost with a light dimmer to dim the lights behind the wall. Behind the wall where the 'ghost' is should be completely black and the light behind the wall should be turned off. At this point, the audience can only see their own reflection. As the they look into the 'mirror', the ghost turns the light dimmer so he is dimly illuminated. The audience can then see their own reflection and also what appears to be the image of the 'ghost' as well.
