Heya Peeps. Getting ready to start building props again. Going to try real hard this year to start ahead of time (like not a few days before Halloween lol) to get some things done.
What I'm wanting to do is create a posable, static prop of a bat winged gargoyle type critter. I imagine it'll be in the neighborhood of a 3 foot wingspan. I think for the frame I'll build my usual wire and pvc zombie hands, just scale them up. What I'm not sure on yet is the skin. I'd like the wings to be kinda tight looking when fully streched out, but also be able to have them fold up, without looking too baggy. I'm a fan of Allen H's plastic corpsing methods, But I'm afraid that when the wings are closed, it might look like, well, a crumpled trash bag. lol
So, any ideas of thoughts on how to go about this? Anyone try something like this before? Love to hear it. And as always, this has to be done on a ghetto budget, the cheaper the better!
