We've been looking for a source
of camouflage netting in unusual colors that could be used for both building a Haunted
Attraction and Home Haunts. In the past, you had to go military surplus stores, but could
only find the standard military Olive Drab color. But we finally found a company that
carries a great selection of very unusual camouflage. Below are a few helpful hints on
using camouflage netting for your Halloween event.
Camo Netting is a very
versatile and strong material. It can be used as a canopy over a maze or haunted scene,
and/or as the entire "building" materiel for a maze. There is no cutting,
nailing, or painting! Just rig a wire or Tie line grid at least 8' above the floor and let
your imagination decide on the layout. You can hide monsters or effects in the
"walls". Add a little fog and some lights and the guest's visual depth
perception is constantly being fooled. The maze seems to go on forever and end abruptly.
Ghouls pop out of nowhere.
Camo Netting makes a good,
cheap, and reusable costume. Dress you monsters in black or camouflage clothing and cover
with a small net or use the personal camo system. Now just add a mask and you have a scary
creature that materializes out of nowhere. Throw a few nets over your walls; no detail
painting. Make creepy shafts of light with a blast of fog and a floodlight on the other
side of the net. Add some Jute, also called Erosion Cloth, and you have a very believable
swamp or forest.
Got Camo carries one of the
largest selections of specialty camouflage netting on the Internet including; Standard
Military Colors, Red, Black, Blue, Snow, Desert, Urban, Devil Red. These different colors
allow you to use camo net in more places than before.
