There are just 19 days until Halloween!
This year, Halloween is back in a very big way, and one of the biggest signs is the popularity of haunted attractions across the country as people look for ways to scream, shout and relieve the tension of the last months.
SCAREHOUSE in Pittsburgh is “one of America’s scariest Halloween attractions” (Travel Channel), celebrates its 20th anniversary with one of its most elaborate experiences ever. The haunt experts at SCAREHOUSE want to help make everyone’s Halloween even more memorable this year by sharing some of their secrets.
This Halloween season, face masks will be important for safety, as they are at SCAREHOUSE, which practices safety protocols that exceed local requirements. But face masks don’t need to be dull — in fact, you can create your own SCAREHOUSE-inspired face mask, featuring two fan-favorite characters from “20 Years of Fears”: its iconic Demon creature, and Bunny, the hatchet-wielding rabbit (photos of both above). Steps to create your own face mask are below the image, and links to download the designs can be found here.
WHAT YOU’LL NEED:
* White, undecorated, reusable face masks made of cotton, such as these.
* Iron-on transfer printer paper, which can easily be found at most office-supply stores
HOW TO MAKE THEM:
* Following the manufacturer instructions, load the iron-on transfer paper into your printer and print out one (or or both) of these SCAREHOUSE mask images — BUNNY FACE or DEMON FACE
* Once printed, follow instructions with the transfer paper to cut out the image and also to prepare your mask by warming it up and removing any creases
* Using an iron (adult supervision required), transfer the image and let it cool
* Once transferred, use the fabric markers or paint to color your image
You’ll have a totally unique, super-personalized SCAREHOUSE face mask that you can use when you go out to a haunted house like SCAREHOUSE, enjoy a socially distanced Halloween party, or answer the door for trick or treaters!
As we near Halloween, we’ll have more tips for you in the weeks ahead. In the meantime, don’t forget … SCAREHOUSE in Pittsburgh is open Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays from now through Halloween!
