After a break from making HM pieces, I'm back on it with a custom DLR Haunted Mansion window cornice replica.


A paint up and display for my blast-up ghost:


And a replica portrait gallery chandelier:

Definitely going to be looking into making those cornices at some point. I was able to source the same materials for the curtains a few years back for my HM themed ballroom. Working on updating our antique chandeliers in the room to flicker as well. Love your tutorials

I created this video from a series of still pictures, so it's not made from a full video of the actual haunted mansion picture, but still having it in video form should allow you to upload it to a video picture frame of your choice.

I’m planning on making the changing portraits using perforated images with backlighting. Any reference photos are always helpful. I also use many two way mirrors with tinted window film and a tv screen to project images or video footage of portraits or HM scenery at Halloween season which is great for haunted house tours. Going to try out the hatbox ghost this year

I made my video from the second set of April pics I posted. And I just got those off of YouTube.
If you have some lower rez pics, I might be able to clean them up for you. I have a number of software packages, not just blowing them up in Photoshop..

Hey sorry to resurrect the stretching portraits section, but does anyone still have the hires files that you can share? The dropbox link appears to be dead now. Thanks!

I still have them saved in my files on my phone. Not sure of how to send them though. Just reprinted and framed mine in a few weeks ago.

Working on a series of 3 changing portraits, featuring Dorian Grey, Medusa & Ghost Ship. These will go in my HM dinning area for upcoming tours later this month and next in Orlando. Can’t wait to finish these off and install them. Scored some beautiful 1870 gesso frames at an estate sale earlier this year for $25 each!

Been a busy month here in my little haunted mansion. Been building a lot of new frames to hold some of the updated wall art. Made some Victorian inspired aged gesso frames for dueling portraits and changing portraits along with this Leota inspired urn I repainted from DesignToscano which ended up being free do to a defect

Love your videos! Just recently discovered them!!!!!! INSANE work!
I managed to trace down the foyer lace a few years ago. Kicking myself for not buying more when it was $5.99 yd! Can’t find it anywhere now. I ended up going with a different style curtain at the same time but have the same fabrics in my HM themed dinning room. My roommate does a lot of programming for our props so we are working on custom building the chandelier flicker effect, but from scratch to save a bit more money. This chandelier is my favorite in the house when backlit at night

Madame Leota has finally awakened from her long annual slumber in time for the fall season. Really pleased with the look this year. Still have a few tweaks to make this week for a more seamless suspension of the floating objects, but happy with her seance circle and the new chair. Hoping to add in a few extra instruments between now and Halloween.
