Funny how we all had the same thoughts... Ha! That's soo cool...wait...which one of us on the forum did it...have to check to see who it was...wish I had thought of that----ummm nope, no way would I be able to spare ONE much less TWO skellies for a scene like this, but darn! it's cool.
A month or more ago when I saw a "Skeleton" in my local river it was just the grill from an old car or truck (Rib Cage) and some random sticks that sure looked like a complete leg bones all the way down, including the waggling "Foot" at the end.
The advantage these pieces of Junk had was we Living were seeing it from maybe 100 feet above it from the Bridge, so "Details" were lost over such a distance and the imagination could be allowed to "Fill in".
Here's the scoop on who put the Pose n Stay skeletons in the River. Go to www.parkerliveonline.com for the story. It even has photos of them a year ago before the placed them in the drink. Awesome. Trying to think of a way to out - do that one.
