Stylus SE - Cold Sparks

Cold Sparks

Indoor Safe - cold to the touch and sparks shoot 10-14 feet high - our most popular special effect! Best used as pairs, although 3 (5) can work in one focal area. Great for introductions, first dances, and for making the party vibe immaculate!

Stylus SE - Dancing on A Cloud

Dancing on a Cloud

This amazing effect uses dry ice to create an amazing knee-high blanket of clouds across your entire dance floor. Perfect for first dances. Larger dance floor? You might need two.

Stylus SE - Cryo Cannon

Cryo Cannon

Cryo Cannon blasts can take the party to the next level - lots of fun for couples with maximalist party energy! You get to use the cannon!

Stylus SE - Fog/Haze


Atmospherics that help your lighting package to shine or create a mysterious mood. An absolute necessity for some lighting elements (some intelligent moving heads, lasers). Some venues will not allow because they have a special type of smoke detection system, but it's rare and it's best to double check.

Stylus SE - Cold Sparks


This quick-dissipating power power move is perfect for introductions and is a much more cost-effective effect compared to the cold sparks. The cool blasts can shoot up to 10 feet high! Can give you a cryo or pyro simulation at a fraction of the budget!

Stylus SE - Bubbles

Bubble Snow

Cost Effective Bubble Snow effect (not recommended for slick floors) - Tiny clumps of bubbles that gently float down creating the snow effect

Stylus SE - Fake Snow

Fake Snow

Plastic flakes that look authentic in the air and on the ground. Tested to be environmentally safe and sweeps up & melts away with water.

Stylus SE - Fireworks


This requires certified professionals and is only recommended for outdoor or large area spaces.

Stylus SE - Confetti

Confetti & Streamers

- a powerful blast of confetti or streamers to fill a room with fun! Options include tissue confetti, mylar (metallic) confetti, tissue streamers, and mylar (metallic) streamers.

NOTE ABOUT SMOKE DETECTORS: Haze and Fog machines are different in how much they obscure. A hazer is there to give the light something to grab onto in the air. Fog machines create the full billowing you might see on Halloween. Foggers are more likely to set something off than hazers. Both will work safely with fire alarms that are Rise of Rate of Temperature sensitive but are not recommended for venues with Particulate smoke detection. Some venues may even have detectors in the ductwork. The Authority Having Jurisdiction (AHJ) or the Fire Marshall can disable the particulate sensors of the venue if deemed appropriate. This is a common practice in most theaters.

As a general rule, fog is going to be fine in older buildings with heat sensors or mercury bulb sprinklers (red glass bulbs). These are triggered by heat, which haze/fog doesn't generate.

Ionizing smoke detectors, beam detectors, or CO2 detector systems will need a quick check, and you can isolate if needed via the MIMIC panel or equilvalent. Regions have specific requirements for this, please consult your venue to see what type of system they have.
