Halloween Idea #51
To make the fog from your fog machine lay on the ground, build an inexpensive fog chiller from PVC pipe and an old cooler. It makes a great effect for your yard haunt and it's fairly inexpensive to do. What happens is the warm fog is chilled on it's way through the cooler which makes it lay on the ground and roll across the area it is directed to.

If you have a grave yard set up, you can use a long piece of perforated PVC pipe and cover it with leaves. It makes it look like the fog is coming up from the ground, through the dirt and leaves. It really gives your haunted grave yard a creepy look!

Halloween Idea #57
Photographs make memories to keep, something that you can look at and remember the great times you've had. Take lots of Halloween photos of your family, friends and party guests. If you have a party, leave disposable cameras around so everyone can catch candid shots! Remember, digital isn't the only way to go!

People now use their cell phones and digital cameras to take pictures more than any other type of camera but film cameras do still exists and some people prefer the look of film. Whatever type you use, post them online for your friends and family to see that may not live in your area. It keeps you in touch with loved ones, which is getting harder to do every day in this busy world.
