Check out this instructional video that shows how to set up a prop static ghost for Halloween.
Most haunters make flying crank ghosts out of RIT bleached gauze, a pulley system and motor. This is a static variation on that idea using a K-mart ghost and a blacklight bolt to add a little visual depth to the yard haunt. No need to bleach. The ghost glows under the light right out of the box. Even though it wasn't flying it was a big hit. The head of the ghost is very heavy plastic housing a motor and sound components for when its used as a flying ghost.
This show & tell video was taken immediately following the Halloween Yard Haunt prior to dismantling. The unscripted prop descriptions are as complete as time would allow.
Hopefully, this video is informative for first time yard haunters.
