Thanks very much. It wasn't a hard project, just some time and simple materials. Walgreen's skeleton, replaced the head with a better skull. Zip ties to hold the arm position. Glue mache corpsing. Painted the whole body with a brownish gray spray paint (Rustoleum London Gray). Dry brushed on some green/brown "oops" paint, then a light dry brush of some white to highlight the details. Added some creepy cloth, twigs, Spanish moss. The lanterns are glass jars with glue mache textures on the top and bottom. The wooden bases are just to hold the uprights in place and won't be part of the displayed prop on Halloween.Annnd I'm putting this one in the big book of future ideas, those turned out fantastic.
You can kind of get an idea from this. I zip tied the shoulder joints to secure them and keep them from wobbling like they do. I then used zip ties through to lower arms and then through the rib cage to get the right angle so the hands would interlock and hold the lantern. Pretty simple!Would love to see how you zip tied them. Looks fantastic.
