    Default Mooning Pumpkin Guy Prop?

    Has anyone seen this prop or made it?
    It's not scary, just real funny.

    I used to have a picture of it and wanted to make it but now I can't find the picture or how to make it!!! =)

    For those of you who don't know, or maybe the title of the thread threw you off.......

    It's made from 2 pumpkins, one for the face, and one for the butt. He's wearing jeans and a flannel shirt. It's slightly bent over to make it look like he's bending down, and with that his butt is showing mooning everyone.
    I'm not sure how to go about holding everything up and together.

    Then...once I do find it, I just don't want him bending over in my yard, I was wondering if there is something I can have him doing....not sure what though.

    That's the idea, but that wasn't the picture that I had. The one I am looking to make is one that has a face too and the face was painted.
    But I guess as long as I figure out how to make it, I can customize it to what I want.

    You can get some of those fake pumpkins at Michaels and use pvc or chicken wire or something to hold them up.

    I dont have any pictures of the frame, but what I did was I took a piece of scrap plywood 3ft x 3ft -ish , cut a 3 ft piece of 2x4, laid it flat and screwed it to the plywood. I then took my handy dandy measuring device (my leg) and cut 2 2x4's the same length (to about your hip bone). I screwed them to the flat 2x4 so they were stable. If you are looking from the front you will see the wide sides of the 2x4. I put the jeans on him, and screwed another 3 fooot 2x4 to the top of the legs and created what looks like a box.
    I then took a 1x3, cut one end at the angle I wanted him to be bent over (again use your handy dandy self measuring device) and cut it to length. screwed it to the top of the 2x4 with angle brackets and then put on the shirt. The head is mounted to another piece of small scrap plywood screwed to the top of the angled piece, and then the pumpkin is glued to it.
    The butt is a foam pumpkin cut in half and stuffed into the jeans.
    The jeans and shirt were stuffed with straw to fill it in and safety pinned in place. I also pinned in the gloves to make it easier than making foam hands.


    For the bluckies I gel stained them, put pantyhose and distressed it, and then painted it with latex glue, and then re-stained.

    I used minwax gel stain (walnut or mahogeny I can't remember, but the browner of the two)
