what you're wanting is really simple. Just get one large full sized (ceiling to floor) mirror and one full sized two-way mirror. Place the two-way mirror nearest the guests with the "see-through" side facing them. Have the mirror at the end of the room with the reflective side to the guests. Like other people have said, use certain elements in symmetry in order to make it look more realistic. It's a really simple effect. Just make sure to have a fairly thick mirror or treated plexi-glass for the two-way mirror. Knowing how people act, the dumb/disoriented ones will run into the two-way mirror and the arrogant tough-guys will try to break it.

Well that completely depends on what your wanting to do with the electric chair.... I mean, they make prop electric chairs, a distortions "Electric Chair Ride" Which is cool to allot of folks.... it just depends on whether or not you want a static chair or ??
