Dave Lowe’s Moving Eye Portrait...

Dave Lowe is an incredibly talented artist and one heck of a prop builder, and If you’ve never checked out his Para Abnormal web comics, do not wait any longer, because there’s a pretty good chance that you’re going to love them. Anyway, he’s got a quick little tutorial on how he built his moving eye portrait.  Of course, it really helps if you have your own art that you can enlarge to start with (I honestly think that if I had Dave’s artistic abilities I’d probably fill an entire room with moving eye portraits).     The prop build is pretty straight forward.  Once you have your favorite portrait enlarged, just cut out the eye sockets and glue two ping pong ball halves on the back (concave so they have some depth).  Dave utilized green craft crystals for the iris which added a little sparkle to his portrait, but you could always just print one.

Clockwerk’s Ghost Girl...

Clockwerk from HalloweenForum has built a really eerie, almost cartoonish looking Ghost Girl and has posted some great pictures and a brief tutorial on how it was constructed.  This creepy little girl sits atop her tombstone with an ominous glow beckoning passers by to enter her cemetery.  There’s nothing I don’t like about this prop.  Heck, I think the tombstone alone looks great, but Clockwerk has really shown some artistic skill with this girl.  It seems like a pretty easy prop to build, but the arms, legs, and head may take some skill to craft (ok, so maybe it’s not that easy).     You’ll need to create and mount a PVC frame to the tombstone.  The head is constructed out of a styrofoam craft ball with ping pong balls (with LED’s implanted) for eyeballs, while the legs and arms are created using a combination of paper mache and Crayola model magic.     Items needed to complete this include: Tombstone Styrofoam craft ball Ping Pong balls LED lights Paper Mache Crayola Model Magic (4) – 90 degree 3/4″ pvc (2 or 3) – 3/4″ pvc T joints 4  feet – 3/4″...
