Winged Reaper

I love it when you set out to build a prop a certain way and a better prop or process reveals itself to you along the way. That very scenario happened to SpyderWood when he saw a grossly overpriced Winged Reaper prop and decided to alter the course of an existing prop and build his own version.

His Winged Reaper tutorial marries a Bucky skull to a Blucky torso and throws in a variety of Bucky bones for the wings. The build originally utilized the whole Blucky, but as the project progressed he realized that he’d only need the top half. With the robe covering the reaper, though, you may not even need much more than the Skull!




The tricky part with this prop is obviously the wings, but if you can get the Bucky bones screwed together so they can hold the weight of the cheesecloth, the results will be spectacular.


Items needed to create this include but are not limited to:

  • 1 Blucky Skeleton
  • 1 Bucky skull
  • 10 to 12 assorted Bucky bones
  • Cheesecloth
  • Latex (for wings)
  • 3′ – 2×4 wood
  • 6′ – 2″ PVC
