I was going to put this in yard haunting...

But then I saw it came with a tutorial so I thought I'd stick this here instead.

I wouldn't mind building one myself, this is a pretty cool idea for a ghostly yard haunt:

Saw this on pinterist and it looked cool and interesting.

More little projects here including that one:

Made with packing tape. It is suggested to use a mannequin head. Maybe I can borrow the ones from CPR class or the skeletons from the Biology lab room? Or the mannequins from the book store I used to work for XP Looks relatively inexpensive, I just wonder how hard it would be to build?

Whoa.

Watching him wrap the baby in plastic was a little unsettling, but the photo of it pulling the bus stop down is hilarious.

Thanks for posting that. :)

That's a beautiful image--the ghost lady, I mean, not a baby wrapped in plastic.

Oh no! I didn't know they wrapped a baby. I didn't even see a video. I only saw the step by step pictures with the descriptions and instructions. I'm sorry about that. I can remove this if you want. I just thought the ghostly human appearance was cool and wanted to share.

J/K; they used a doll, it's in a link to a how-to video.

Sometimes my humor goes waaayyy off the mark.

Sorry to alarm you. I didn't watch any video, was just keying off what Andy said.

The effect is beautiful and eerie.

It's alright. To be honest my anxiety makes me worry that I'm going to say or do something that offends, and I think when I saw the baby comment my anxiety shot out the window. It's all good though, glad to know it wasn't real and it was just a little joke. It's hard to tell on the internet, and I think had we all been having this conversation in person rather than on a forum, we'd be able to tell the verbal queues and know that it was meant in humor. :lol: Although in real life I'd probably be shy at first and have an awkward laugh due to my nervousness. I'm sure though I'd open up and be a bit more outgoing later on though. It's definitely something I"ll have to learn to deal with and try to overcome when I'm a teacher.

Where did you find the how-to video Andy?

And yeah, I love the effect. I'd like to have the chance to build one, the materials don't look too expensive, but I might wait until I'm established in a career first before taking on any big projects, even for Halloween. So I think we'll likely stick to what we have for right now. This yard and house holds so many different possibilities.
