The skeletons of Bone Chillers Decoration Collection have always been one of AtmosFX’s most beloved characters – both silly and scary, these boneheaded creepsters keep finding new ways to amuse themselves … and Halloween audiences.
Robert Rodriguez of Austin, Texas, has a skeleton DJ pump up the jams while other skeletons from Bone Chillers 2 shake their bones.
Given that, it shouldn’t be a surprise that AtmosFX’s sequel, Bone Chillers 2 Decoration Collection, has a similar effect on Halloween fans and decorators. Just like its predecessor, this inventive decoration has nearly everything you need to create an incredible decorating display: Music, dancing, slapstick routines – and some good ol’ scares!
So, what’s the best way to use Bone Chillers 2? We’ve got a few good ideas for you.
Upgrade Your Cemetery
One of the most popular ways we see Bone Chillers 2 Decoration used is in the front yards of enthusiastic Halloween decorators – after all, for every creepy headstone, there just ought to be a skeleton to go with it. And so many decorators who build front-yard graveyards have done exactly that.
This type of decoration display was practically made for a Hollusion Mode projection. Hollusion Projection Material is perfect when darkness falls because the dark, mesh-like material practically disappears in the night. So many Halloween decorators have simply strung it up amongst the tombstones and projected Bone Chillers 2 directly onto it – it looks as though these skeletons have dug themselves out of their graves and are now walking on earth. Needless to say, that will get the attention of those who visit your home on Halloween!
Shake Your Bones with Music
While Hollusion projection might be the most impressive (and hence, popular) ways to display Bone Chillers 2, you’ll find that just about any projection mode will draw a crowd. Especially when there’s music involved. People just want to start shakin’ their bones!
For example, the “Skeleton Band” and “Skeleton Dances” individual decorations from Bone Chillers 2 contains scenes that are sure to do just that. That makes them perfect for surface projections – preferably as large as possible. For instance, a garage door is a great surface onto which you can project the dancing skeletons – everyone on the street will be able to see the display. Just don’t be surprised when everyone starts dancing in the driveway.
Obviously, you’re not limited to the garage door. Any flat, large surface will work – indoors or out. If your Halloween party is indoors, make sure to display the skeletons on the wall in the room where the sound system is – these decorations are sure to get people grooving. And if you’d rather use your projector for another purpose, those scenes will have the same effect on the crowd when displayed on a TV or computer monitor.
Kids + Skeletons = Fun!
In fact, you can build a playlist of music and dancing themed individual decorations from throughout the AtmosFX Decoration library. Bone Chillers, Halloween Zombie Bash, Halloween Monster Bash and Jack-O’-Lantern Jamboree 3 are a few great examples.
Similarly, if children are coming for a Halloween party, in addition to the music and dancing decorations, you can also build playlists that feature Halloween-themed slapstick routines. The “Silly Skeletons 2” individual decoration from Bone Chillers 2 is a great start. And there are many more lighthearted AtmosFX Decorations, such as Bone Chillers, Jack-O’-Lantern Jamboree 1, 2 and 3, Witching Hour and Boo Crew.
Lastly, don’t forget other cool options for displaying Bone Chillers 2. For example, simply projecting onto your windows is an extremely easy and attention-grabbing technique. With Window Projection Material XL and just a few minutes of setup, when everyone looks at the windows of your home, they will immediately know that this is the place to celebrate Halloween!
