Lightrics can brighten up your Halloween event

The nights are growing longer, day’s turning colder and… the shops are full of Christmas decorations. While some people are already planning for the winter season, we’re busy looking forward to Halloween. Whatever your opinion is on fake blood, costumes and delicious tooth rotting sugar, you can’t deny that Halloween is a great opportunity to flex your creative muscles.

By far the most important thing about any Halloween event is creating the right atmosphere. From immersive theatre to pop up events and temporary installations, here’s some horrifyingly satisfying effects you can use to wow this Halloween.

Special Effects

Special effects machines like fog, haze and smoke machines are an extremely effective and affordable tool for creating an instant air of mystery. As well as giving any space a distinctive look and feel (and smell), atmospherics are great for creating unique visuals such as rivers of smoke, bubbling cauldrons, jump scare geyser effects and the dazzling mid-air effects mentioned below. Why not try adding a powerful stage fan or confetti cannon to surprise your victims, or introduce a bubble machine for a strangely sinister mid-air effect?

Decorating with Light

A choice selection of uplighters, floods and accent lighting can transform an ordinary events space into an enchanted wonderland. Or you know, horrific hellhole, depending on the look you’re going for. LED PARs, strips and battens are perfect for flooding large areas with colour, while profiles provide precision spot lighting, and battery-operated lights give you the freedom to put accent lighting wherever it’s needed.

Light up the Dark

Ultraviolet lights are a fun and unusual way of lighting up specific areas of a scene with UV paints, photoluminescent tape and reflective materials. This makes them great for creating unusual effects for Halloween events and themed escape rooms. Also, with more and more LED lighting including UV channels (for improving skin tones) you can take advantage of having a UV light in your arsenal which can still be used for many more applications.
