The handmade booth is comprised of four wood boards. Its bottom slot was cut and sanded from a single piece of wood for maximum strength.

The curtains were cut out of red foam board and painted for 3D effect. The tassels were hand-painted individually without the use of stencils, then shaded with airbrush to create dimension.

The “Admission” and “…Being Scared” signs were painted using Createx Wicked Colors on illustration board. Both were attached to the booth using .04 Plastic to create a floating effect. The speaker was attached using aluminum wire.

The spiderwebs were created using thin styrene strips adhered into shape with epoxy resin, then painted to look like the ones featured on the cover. The spider was cut out of black card stock paper and highlights painted.

The hood was made of craft foam attached to a headband. The burlap texture was completed by hand, not using any stencils. Painted with Createx Wicked Colors Sepia, Brown, Black and Golden acrylic White.
