I am putting up some mannequins this year. I need to know what most of you are doing about the hands. I need one of them to hold a lantern. Please help time is getting short.

I use various zombie hand yard stakes like the ones in the link below. I insert pieces of 1/2 inch flexible copper tubing into the fingers and bend them to the position I want which includes holding things. After bending the fingers into the position you want, you can also hit the fingers lightly with a heat gun so that the plastic fits their new shape better. I did not hot the hands in the picture below with a heat gun, but probably will this year.
