This is a description of the Mire Man build. The body size is based off a 6.5 to 7 foot male. I am using 3/4 inch PVC and building out the shape with Free Form Air epoxy dough.

This is great. It's one of those things I've seen and loved but always been afraid to try. With your tutorial, the task doesn't seem so daunting. thanks!

Finally!

After wrapping the body with cotton filler cord, yard and twine covered in monster mud the prop is almost finished

Spray painted the entire prop with dark brown spray paint

The only thing left is to dry brush the vines with a lighter color brown paint

Sweet I can really use this tutorial!!

I have this 6ft skeleton that I can use for this that I picked up for $20. Only thing is hid joints are all linked with loops (like two key rings together) so I will first have to figure how I am going to get him to stay as I pose him possibly modify him a bit to make him creepier
