There is nothing creepier than a layer of fog wrapping its misty tendrils around all it touches, which may explain why a fog machines are fast becoming a go to Halloween accessory. It really is a perfect addition to your Halloween preparation, especially since the machine is something that can be used in several different locations, all with the goal of giving trick or treaters the scare of their lives.
Halloween Fog Machine Usage Ideas
Whether you choose to simply place a fog machine in your front yard to make it more frightening, or use one to create a ghoulish “Garage of Gore”, or even a gripping graveyard scene in your yard, the addition of fog can create an extra level of chilling terror that is sure to strike fear into the most hardy Halloween reveler. Heck, you can even just use a fog machine in your basement where you host your Halloween party.
If you would like to add some fog to your Halloween festivities, but aren’t sure where to use it, then here are a few ideas to get you started.
Front Yard Graveyard Display
If you are one of those that like to turn your front yard into a graveyard scene, then you owe it to yourself to add a layer of authenticity that can only by had with the addition of fog. Try to set the fog machine up so that the mist crawls along the ground rather than blanketing all of your cool, scary pieces.
The Front Porch
Combining a fog chiller with your machine on your roof of front porch steps will create the illusion that the mist is creeping down to meet your trick or treaters. Exercise caution if you steps on your porch.
House Of Horrors
Try to find a sweet hiding spot on your roof for the fog machine and chiller and then sit back and watch as the cooled down fog reaches down from the eaves in misty fingers that look as though they are trying to reach out and grab your visitors. To make things easy for yourself, consider using a timer to activate the fog machine.
Your Halloween Yard Haunt
If you’ve taken the time to decorate your yard with all manner of creepy pieces, the best way to really showcase them is to have your fog machine surround them with its ghostly mist.
Scaring Trick or Treaters
Hide the machine in a place where it can’t be seen and then click the remote to send out a blast of fog when the visitors get close.
In Your Garage Of Gore
Some Halloween displays may be a little too much for smaller kids, but that doesn’t mean you can’t set up a scary garage scene for those who are a little braver. A layer of fog can be especially effective in such an enclosed space, making your garage seem even more frightening than it first appears.
A Halloween Party
A fog machine can add an authentic touch to your home Halloween party, but to get the most out of the effect, make sure that the machine is set so that it creates a foggy layer close to the floor rather than all through the air.
