That is truly awesome and creepy at the same time! While I want to say the Bunny Face is cool, I feel I would probably run away and hide if I happened upon it real life - which is the whole point I guess!! I'm hoping to make a scarecrow like this next year. May I ask what you used as the rib cage?
Hey yunz...speaking like a pittsburgher, thank you so much, for the likes/killer things and especially the comments. I appreciate you taking time out to look at my stuff. PE, a special thanks for the incredible kindness you've shown me over the last couple years, I am humbled by your words. I love this site and will always come back to it. I've had some injury issues with knees over the summer so I am way, way.....way behind. Getiing as much done as I can over the next few weeks in hopes of putting something respectable in the yard...this year in Erie, PA for sure...hometown.
Again, thanks a ton, I should have a bunch more coming in the next couple weeks. Maybe toss in a couple in progress shots of things. I have four things done-done...that I'm keeping under wraps until game day, a little top secret Rot-like...as in no peeking.
Hey thank you, too kind. I mostly stick to organic materials for effect...I'm a big, big. big pumpkinrot fan and believe he is far and away the best of our generation. However I also have a very busy work schedule as many of us do, kids things, just had a homecoming thing for our youngest son, yay...so the paper mache method that he uses isn't really in my best interests, so I am a plastic and heat gun monster, anyway...
So the framing, the armatures on most of my things are either heavy vines that I get from the cemetery that Night of the living dead was filmed at, or PVC pipe with sticks and vines, glued, tied, taped over top. I'll start with a nice limb for a spine, then build off of that. It does usually take me a couple hours to put one...such as either this scarecrow, RED...(remember everyone deployed) or one of my older props, together. The bunny was just a spine/shoulder/waist that I'd tied together last year and some vine ribs that took about a half hour to place. No magic, no quick tips, just place and tie, place and tie, etc. The vines, when initially cut, are pretty bendable, hence the reasoning behind them.
