Help with our Entrance Door
We run a Non-Profit Haunt in donated space at our Community Centre and old Fire Station Garage. We transform it in one week.
We need a better entrance and all of our budget is pretty much invested inside the Haunt. Guests enter through a standard size door. We have lots of teens we can put to work before school, anxious to help with anything. We have great paper mache skills and can whip off dozens of decent skulls quickly and cheap. I didn't just want a simple frame of skulls around the door, and it doesn't need to be skulls. ( FYI ..we never worked with foam carving before)
Any head turning ideas? It may have to be free standing. The building was recently renovated with new siding.
Fool Everyone, amaze them!
Fill the door opening with a set of stairs going up and out of sight, which move on casters to allow entrance! The upper stairs could be an optical illusion with paint to keep the whole thing thinner, easier to handle/build.
How about hiding the opening with cloth, then the curtain pulls open and the door is numerous sets of hands, fingers spread out, inter-locked with the hands on the other side of the door. Two cafe-door double sprung hinges would work. This will take some time to build and make work right but then most will remember it and be impressed, I believe.
Entertaining and impressing the customers creates patrons from mere customers and it sure is nice to have patrons who return, bring their friends, send their friends and usually do not complain about the ticket price.='s Pretty NICE!
