Im looking for plans to build a pvc frame for a prop. Thinking of Jason, or Leatherface, I have the costumes, just need to build a simple pvc body.
I tried the search feature, but for some reason, I couldnt get it to work..
Thanks guys!!!

I've made many frames out of PVC for all kinds of props.... for life size... I use my arms and legs as references.... I use 90 degree angles on some parts and 45 degrees for others...
Use dry wall screws to hold it all together. ( that holds better than the glue and you can take it apart in future if you need.) I usually use 1/2" pvc.

anyway, its really really simple, you shouldn't have any problems with it. Just buy elbows, t's and x's...... and go for it !

If you need anything curved just a little..... the pvc can be bent when you apply heat. I use a propane torch. Dont apply the flame for very long, as the pvc burns really quickly.
