100% AWESOMENESS!!! Having just watched Tim Burton's Sleep Hollow the other night I especially appreciate this. Are you going to make an Ichabod Crane complete with a medical bag full of random diagnostic instruments? What'd you use for hands?
Ichabod: You must'nt move the body ever
Crowd: Why not?
the hands are from Ghostride.com. Thick wire was inserted thru the fingertips so the digits would hold their pose. Right hand was cut at the wrist and repositioned downward.
This caused a missing "chunk" of the wrist that I filled in with Great Stuff. Cut excess foam to shape, sanded and repainted in a bruised, raw and weathered look.
The slash gesture was the key to the prop. If I couldnt make the hand right I probably would have scrapped the idea.
