Hi guys! I am new to this forum so please forgive, and be patient with me. Just as I am new to the forum, I'm also new to the whole DIY for props. This year for my outdoor theme I am having a Creepy Carnival with clowns and etc, BUT I thought I'd throw in a small cage that will appear as a Tazmanian devil as part of my fake freakshow. I was thinking of using two (or just one) styrofoam ice coolers, black or gray crafting foam, and atleast 9-10 wooden craft sticks. I was going to paint the sticks silver so they'd look like bars, and glue onto the styrofoam the crafting foam. This was it looks like a cage. Next I was going to use a small or medium flickering battery operated light, but here is my problem... I want to make the illusion that the creature is in there so any suggestions, and does this idea so far sound Ok?
