ok guys- never seen this in person, but I gotta know how they do it. Obviously it's animatronic. However- what's that material around her face that allows her to move like that? Some sort of rubber? Man this is cool...

It looks like she's built in two.

The face and hair are one solid piece. It moves independently ( IN and OUT) from the rest of the tombstone relief. The eyes "blink" like those on the talking douglas fir!

I bet this can be made both light weight and inexpensive with some douglas fir eyes, a wig head, and a reindeer motor turned sideways.

The best way to do this, would be to. just paint up your wife and let her sit behind the tombstone. You would much better action!:D

Where do I see LaurieBeast's work?

Yes, it's animatronic. Meaning, servos. Again- not sure what the material is surrounding it. It holds the paint/color VERY well to make it look like real copper/bronze...

LaurieBeast's work (she is AMAZING and should be a professional character builder - her props are works of art):

and the silicone or rubberized face of the stone may not be painted. I would think they cast it in colors and tints and avoid paint altogether.

I think MrChicken hit it on the head - silicone. It can handle a wide variety of color, maintains a lot of flexibility and has good resistance to the elements.
