Halloween 2011 -- The build begins

Finally, finally, finally, I have gotten around to building my props for this years' Halloween. The plan was to make several pumpkins, but as usual, I got side tracked into beginning a skull, from which I again got side tracked to building a torso. I hope I actually stick to the goal of building the skeletal torso!

For inspiration, I go to Scott Stoll's excellent site: from where I learnt everything I now know about papier mache!

Guess where these will go

1 of these
I will be using about 6 or so of these

Hopefully later today I can begin to build the armature.

And just when I thought I had my act together, I realize that my half built skull has gone missing. Now where did that thing go?! You can never trust dark creatures. Never.

@Shail: still making.. it will be a long and piece-meal project... At present I am time sharing between a pumpkin and the torso. Still can't find that sneaky skull, though!
