Now that the New Year has finally arrived, it is always nice to be able to look back and enjoy some of the highlights from the previous year. Like finding a fully intact Reece’s Peanut Butter Cup from Halloween between the cushions of the couch! What could be better?
To be clear, we’ve eaten those. But what’s probably even better is re-discovering some of our favorite treats from this past Halloween, like this incredibly detailed ancient Egyptian display from Liz Perkins in Farmington, Utah. She calls it the “Perilous Perkins Pyramid.”
We’ve always been big supporters of those clever AtmosFANs who build an entire Halloween display around a singular theme, like Harry Potter and Hogwarts, a haunted pumpkin patch or the historical ghosts of a specific California valley. From our perspective, the continuity of the theme takes already incredible displays up yet another notch, making it even more appealing for all those who encounter it. We’re sure, too, that it is fun for the creator, in that it is almost like putting together a giant puzzle.
Liz built an entire display around the theme of an ancient Egyptian tomb, and all the supernatural creepiness – insects, reptiles, skeletons – that comes with it. There’s detail around every corner, like the hieroglyphics, mummies, scarabs – even Anubis, the god of death. We love how she’s taken Halloween skeletons and re-purposed them to create the half-human-half-animal mythical creatures from ancient Egypt.
Once inside the Perilous Perkins Pyramid, there’s a great use of AtmosFX’s Creepy Crawlies 2 Digital Decoration, in which snakes pour out of a mysterious hole. “The AtmosFX projection took it over the top,” Liz tells us.
We think it does a great job going over the top on its own. Liz tells us that it took about 2 to 3 months planning and constructing her Halloween display – particularly impressive given that this is the first time she’s built an ancient Egyptian theme. She says the neighborhood looks forward each year to see what she’ll create.
“I rotate themes every year and this was my first time putting together an Egyptian/mummy haunt,” she says. “A few things to tweak for the next time it makes its rotation, but pretty successful overall.”
We’d say so! Great work Liz!
