    Using guide here: https://atmosfx.com/blogs/community/step-by-step-build-your-own-unliving-portrait-gallery put together one of many new Halloween props.
    • 2 of 22' monitors (acquired)
    • 2 of 1080p HDMI/VGA Media players (ebay)
    • 1 of Dual HD LED TV Desk Mount Monitor Stand 2 Arms Hold 2 Screens Vesa (ebay)
    • 2 of 2.4m timber moulding (bunnings)
    • 1 of gold spray paint (bunnings)
    • Velcro (hook and loop) with self adhesive tape (bunnings) - for attaching frame and media player to monitor.

    I might get some wood glue to attach the picture frame pieces together and I may "distress" the frame so they don't look so new. Apart from that reasonably happy.

    On the night I'll disguise the attachments a bit with some of that cheap cobweb stuff

    Edited original and put link in.
    Chose these as they had VGA out which meant I didn't need to buy any video cables (eg HDMI to VGA)
