    I have one of these and you can not see the mirrors no matter how close you are. Like Allen said if the sides were not there the whole effect would not work. You have to be a little careful if it is very dusty etc. so that the mirrors do not get dirty and make sure that you be careful at the way you light the box so that the light doesn't show in the mirror. It's easy and effective. You can paint it different and change it into something new every year. Mine is painted for a clown right now, we are remaking it into a voo-doo witch doctor this year.

    Outside or inside it does not matter, you wont see the mirrors.

    Yeah! Years ago they had the spill your guts there. They had him out front as a barker, very good one too!

    That was where I saw my first one at. We went there... ohh about 10 years ago I guess. We went to the rod run and car show.

    Hate to disagree with Allen but we have made one without mirrors. Just a skeleton mounted on the box, a hole in the back allows the person to lean over the skeleton and hang their shirt over it so it looks like their body is skeleton. If that makes sense?!! Looks cool if done right.

    Yes like the first video posted it can be done to an extent without mirrors, however the specific picture he posted is what he asked about and it was done with mirrors. in my opinion the mirrored version looks better in a side by side comparison.
    I would love to see pics of your set up.

    Looks great Odin-
    The difference between your version and the mirror version is that the actor is more towards the middle of the cube as opposed to being against the back wall. At a haunt at night it will make almost no difference. The illusion is pretty stunning with the mirrors even in broad daylight.
