Great idea Lilly! And very inexpensive too! I love the idea of no body there, just a form!

Very creepy, great job. I love the shape!

I bet the kids won't walk by that one. Nice job Lilly.

I like it Lilly! Cool little prop, and very unique idea to make it completely hollow. I could see making something like this and installing a pneumatic spitter.....

Very creapy! I love it. I would have a hard time walking by it too. I would think that it was someone waiting to pounce... oh the anticipation!

09-17-2007, 10:31 AM
I love that there is nothing there, very erie. Nice job.

I love the red light glowing out of the place where a face would be... very creepy! Kudos to you Lilly!!!

Lots of originality with this contest.

Good job, lily.

Great idea, an invisible 'thing' in a cloak that glows red by night. Very Nice!

I like that idea! Makes me think of Tolkein's Nazgul... you see the cloaks, but not the guy inside.

Lilly, that's fantastic!!!! Just the figure with no body really makes it creepy.

Great job!

Great work Lilly! I love the texture of the sheet!

09-17-2007, 08:46 PM
very nice- iwould have never guess with your teaser pics ;)

Thanks everyone..
I was thinking this was going to be hard to do since I never used the MM before, but once I started ..away I went.
Also wanted something that I didn't have to build a "body" for too. The bucket worked nicely..this time.
Glad you all like him!!
After the contest I'll introduce you to his friends

The Creep is coming for you, Barbara!

Reeeaaally creepy.

I really like this little guy, very creative. Would also be cool with one of the changing LED misters, but he's still super cool without!

09-21-2007, 07:48 PM
I really like it....good job Lilly!

This reminds me of the Ring, why I don't know.

That is just spooky. He would look great in the woods.

Creepy, I am sure that was what you were going for. I love it.
