Strife Pics






Here are a few more pictures of my new Strife prop. I re-used the head and hands from the first groundbreaker corpse I ever attempted to build, which didn't turn out so hot. Actually, they are from this guy. The rest of it is made from a skeleton made from rolled up newspaper, which was covered in paper mache'. Most of the branches I used are from Mountain Laurel, which I have a ton of growing in the woods behind my house. I'm looking forward to building a few more of these this year to line each side of my driveway. Should be a pretty spooky walk for the kids to get their treats this year...

Wow! That is fantastic.
A story started going in my head as soon as I saw it. Always the sign of a great prop.

Excellent.

Great work! Kids will probably walk to your door quickly looking back to be sure nothing is following them.

Very creepy!

The prop itself is outstanding, and the photos (as most of the other pics and videos I've seen on Pumpkinrot, GrimHollow & youtube) are great, too
