That is Witch In Progress.
I'm not going to do a long thread on this but I tried something new on this body. I don't recall seeing it done but then again I haven't seen everything. Anyway I have been using wire and window screen for structure but this time it occurred to me that a bucket lid might make a good butt structure for a prop. I think the pics are self explanatory. wire is from Home Depot in the ceiling tile section although it seems way to heavy for hanging tile. Maybe 12 gauge but still workable.

Interesting! The bucket lid works well. Fleshing out pvc armatures is always a challenge and I like seeing different methods. Looks good so far!

Decided that she would be a little more colorful than your standard black witch. Although you can't see it she is missing her other hand and also needs some trim on her cloak. I am in the process of making a (real) bird skull and amulet necklace for her. She will be the "queenwitch ' In the witch shack scene. I realize she looks pretty bright but once she is dirtied up a little and placed on a darkened set I think she will be OK. As always suggestions and comment are welcome.

I hope to be able to animate the "earth witch " this year so it looks as if she is struggling to rise from the bog. any suggestions on a mechanism would be gladly received. There was so much to do last year that there was really no time for fine detail or animation.
