These are all photos from Halloween 2013 when I really wanted to utilize more black lights in the haunted maze. I used fluorescent yellow highlighter dunked in water to fill the flask and added fluorescent highlights using acrylic paint on the clown flag. These are some of my all-time favorite black light photos that I have captured so far.
I'm really into LED lights, whether it be for Halloween or Christmas. They're so much brighter, use less energy and are a lot safer because the bulbs don't get hot. In fact, over the years I have completely switched to only LED and its all I'll buy now! Above you'll notice skeleton LED lights intertwined with bright blue LED lights from Christmas. Together they give off an eerie and skull-tastic glow and look great with the light on or off! My recommendation is to try to find blue, purple, or red LED light sets on clearance after Christmas to add to your indoor or outdoor scenes. These were draped over my shelves in the photos below.
One of my favorite things to do is set the mood to the entrance to our house with eerie lighting! This is a shot from 2019. I normally preserve the props for the actual maze, but I think this was a good choice with the green lighting. My sister actually bought the purple skeleton light for our maze and it actually has interchangeable lenses!
