Ghost of the Ghoul Goes West, pt. 6

Just a brief look...

Impossibly skinny and cartoonish... perfect!

My apologies to you all (and Mr. Chicken in particular) for not posting any video yet but I am honestly waiting until I get a whole day's worth of real programming time before trying to show you how he moves. I've had to rebuild and redesign things after burning out servos and so on, and it only looks right when it's all choreographed and moving  just right.

Soon, I promise.

Besides, I have to finish making his little shoes...

They'll be black with grey spats, and barely visible anyway. I thought this Model Magic base would be fine. 

My ol' friend and monster buddy, Henchman Henner, is making the little stage with footlights, and we'll meet up in Burbank to put it all together and fine tune things before setting it up at Monsterpalooza.

It never ends up just as I first imagine it, but it always ends up being odd, fun, quirky and entirely mine.

I'll take it.



  1. Oh man, he looks great! I never did mention how much I liked the paint job you did on the skull-- excellent work. I think the choice of skull, too, was the right choice for the real Edward's face.

    What's his hair made of, by the way?

    I'm very excited to see him in action.

  2. Can't wait to see how he moves!

  3. Thank you kindly, guys!

    Mr. Chicken, his hair is just one of those 9x11 pieces of craft fur you can get for $2 at any hobby/craft store. I happened to have this one in my scrap bins for who knows how long, and it was just right.

    Appreciate the comments about the skull too. I tried to get that dry, mummy brown thing going on, but with enough life left to give him some warmth. I think it worked.

    Thanks again.

  4. You had me at Model Magic and ordinary craft fur.
