hey guys. well last year we did our mad science lab guy with other various props to go with it. This year we decided we liked it so much we would just add to it by making one part of the house a great big mad lab type theme. We added two props this is one of them. everything has been made by my wife and I. The table is all core foam and various coating to keep it strong over the years. then we airbrushed most of the details

Frankenstein himself if a casting of my body done with chicken wire and casting material. the LOTs of clay to add the mass to the upper body. the face is also done with das Clay and sculpted by my wife. the core of the head is a standar foam head from the party store.

all we really have left to do is all the lighting and they "dirty" it up a bit. out of the back will come fog every 10 min along with a soft moaning that we recorded. the lighting is attached to a lighting effect machine to give a nive spooky flicker. I am very curious about what you guys will think This is only our second year making things like this so we have ALOT to learn. any and all opinions are welcome and appriciated. here are a few pics of where we are so far

Great job on Frankie on the lab! I really don't have anything to add as far as making Frankie better. Your wife's work is really brilliant. You should try contacting Lauriebeast - she is our resident sculptress extraordinaire. Check out her album if you haven't already. She has a knack for realism that is uncanny. Your stuff is really wonderful!!
