Halloween Death Star Garage

Hello Star wars enthusiasts.

 

My neighborhood goes all-out for Halloween and I'm looking to create a disney-style experience for the many kido's who come trick-or-treating through the hood.

To do so I'm looking for ideas and experience that anyone has on turning their 2-car garage into an imperial hangar. I'm having trouble finding props to buy, so am thinking that I may need to craft the walls, and light them from behind to give that imperial glow. Considering mounting a projector from the ceiling to make the backdrop of the garage look like space as well. Or using something like this backdrop and lighting from below. https://www.trooperbay.com/products/death-star-hallway-10x8-banner-only-with-2-inch-loops-top-and-bottom-1

 

I'm also looking for ideas on how to turn my modest sized front yard into an imperial themed scene. Any ideas or feedback is extremely welcomed! I will post pictures after :)

You can normally find Star Wars themed inflatables https://www.amazon.com/star-wars-holiday-inflatable/s?k=star+wars+holiday+inflatable

Star Wars silhouettes may work well if using a projector. If you wanted to get really creative you could add servos to the arm sections and rivet those so they move.

There is someone who does custom backdrops, out of vinyl or fabric but unfortunately he is on the 501st members forum. A lot of the panels members make to emulate the death star walls are mostly cut out of MDF either by hand or by CNC, it's a lot work but done right can look awesome.

You could also buy some of the cheap costumes and make scarecrows

Or if you have access to a 3D printer make some droids, include motion sensor and mp3 player and amp so they talk when people approach. People do like interactive lights and sound

You can find holo projectors online, can add your own images

 

 

It all comes down to price and time and how creative your mind can be :D
