Baron, check out this site.Wow! Thats some transformation.
It's made something laughable into something useable!
We can't get Blucky's here in the UK, but I'd love to see how you did it!
Monster Guts - Skeleton Props
These are really simple Bluckies, but they sell for $12 USD, or £6.33. Since they provide international pricing, I'm guessing they would be willing to sell to you in the UK. Also, Bluckies are very light, so shipping shouldn't be too bad. I usually get 5 at a time so I can get Free Shipping, but I'm in the states.
