That style is called a Pumpkin Sentinel. There are several different builds on here so I'm sure someone will chime in soon. Mine is a bit different than others, more of a scarecrow than a sentinel, but I used some of the same techniques such as the elongated stem and the gangly arms...
Yea, but mine is not a true sentinel. What Kev is looking for is info on building the gangly, creepy twisted thing with a half pumpkin head and vine like body. Mine just used a few parts from the sentinel to create a creepy scarecrow/pumpkin king. I thought it might be useful to him to see my version of the arms and guts. Somebody chime in and link Kev to a tutorial or two on building sentinels.
I don't know whose pumpkin creatures those are Kev, but I have some suggestions on how to make them. There are fake carvable pumpkins called Funkins. You could carve one for the head. Or, you could get a large balloon and paper mache' a pumpkin head. For the arms maybe sticks, plaster gauze, tinted silicone for texture.
Hello everyone. I have heard of the pumpkin seninrrls and have seen the famous pumpkinrot ones. I want to make the scary pumpkin looking one I posted and wanted to see more pics of who made it and see how they did it. I planned on carving it out of a foam pumpkin. Thanks and keep posting pics
The one on the left in your picture, I'm not sure who made THAT one.
The standard construction is a PVC frame body and various methods to flesh it out.
THE ORIGINAL as far as I can tell, however, is unfortunately lost to the ether when skull and bones went offline. He called it a pumpkin creeper. I've contatced him about any pictures and have had no answer.
Hilda links to a couple of mimics floating around.
I have taken the bifurcated look with real pumpkins since 2010.
I actually had some mini creatures in 2010, but my camera decided to suck it up that year, so pics suck.
Since 2010, I've encorporated the bifurcated look into my fence, always an annual hit.
This year, I'm working on a full sized set of creatures myself, something of the ugly stepchild of these and a sentinel. I'm hoping to get a lot of work done over the next couple weeks.
^I've seen another one of these guys somewhere, I just can't remember where. I like your version UnorthOdox, especially how you made the head. Really clever fabrication and a very cool tutorial all the way around.
