We had a huge thunderstorm roll in today so i decided to put my free time to good use. This is the frame for my Slenderman prop. Currently it stands just over seven feet. The bricks are temporary weight until i can get some sandbags. Apparently there was a run on them today with the storm.
Well i have had to slow down work on slenderman thanks to classes and my brother. He now runs whenever he sees me coming with tinfoil and tape. For the frame i have learned several things. When i put the amateur hands and head on to test them, along with the pants i realized that i had made a mistake. I had taken normal proportions and just stretched them up a bit. This left me with a tall, but not slender man, i was forced to cut off almost half a foot in his width to make him slender again. the new measurements are.
Shoulders 20 inches
Waist 20 inches
Legs 4 feet long
Chest 3 feet long
Arms 4 feet long, This allows them to reach well past the waist and make the illusion that he is even thinner.
Be careful to keep the weight down. I tried making a similar prop last year. The PVC buckled under the weight. I switched to the gray extra-rigid electrical conduit PVC and still had problems with it sagging. I finally got fed up with the problems and axe murdered it.
