Okay, I found it! The prop is called Clair Voyant. Here is a link from: The Blood Curdling Monster Mask Blog that had a post featuring the 1999 Don Post Studios catalog:
And a picture:
That Witch was made by Don Post Studios back in the late 90s and early 2000s. I have a smaller version of her (pictured below in the upper left):
The version you have is rare and hard to find. Also looks like it's in great shape! I will try to find the catalog picture of her and post it.
Also, try putting it under a black light and see if she glows in the dark... Mine does and I think they was all described as doing so. Great find!
Well that would certainly explain why so few are out there. I have seen her on eBay a few times, one went for over $400 and the other was a buy it now for $250 (I think?) and was for sale the same time the new version was released. What always stood out to me about this version was it was actually life size and larger than most "life size" props available today.
I remember seeing that at Spirit Halloween back in 2001. You're right, it's Gemmy made and is quite the collectible. Not sure now since they re-released her a few years ago, but still a great piece and very life-like.
When I saw that listing, I thought of you. One day you will get your hands on it :)
If it's any consolation, I would sell it to you if I had it. I know how much you want it and how hard you've been looking.
My Walmart had the purple version for $16.88 so I picked it up. I'm not impressed with it. It was more Red and Blue (think Patriotic) than purple and did not have a Halloween vibe to it. I am going to keep it and use it as a lighting effect for the 4th of July next year.
Just checked the tracking website, looks like my victim should be getting their package tomorrow. Unless of course it goes to Florida for a few days first haha. I sure hope not!! I'm really nervous that I didn't wrap the package good enough with extra "stuffing" material, praying one of the items arrives in one piece! :eek:
I think I am in the category of being an ExTreme Haunter...
