One of our actors in our haunted forest this year wanted to be a grim reaper in our cemetery. His plan was to be on drywall stilts with an overall height of around 8 feet tall. He wasn't able to acquire the stilts so he ended up standing on 5 gallon buckets instead.
Anyway, since a grim reaper would not be complete without his scythe, I volunteered to build one for him. I created an instructable for it, so please check it out and let me know what you think.
