Conjuring Your Own Pepper’s Ghost

Instructor: Randy Powell

Location: Classroom B

This presentation will cover the historical origin of the Pepper’s Ghost illusion, the two main variations in use, multiple “haunt” applications of the illusion, dissections of classic and other examples (including Disney’s Haunted Mansion Ballroom), materials and lower cost options, illusion set-up variables, plus tips, tricks and other details. Topics will be illustrated and explained using diagrams, photos, video clips, and a 1/12th scale physical model and video of Randy’s introductory “Foyer Ghost Hostess” scene for Monster Manor, which featured a live actress, interacting with haunt patrons. Time for questions will be available at the end of the presentation.
