Default Rising Spirits How-to

I have compiled a bunch of pictures into a general How-to on my new rising spirits prop. Obviously this is just an overview of the build, so if you need any specifics just ask.

A quick list of materials before you check out my video:
7 or 8 feet of 1/2 inch pvc (you could use heavier if you want to)
heat gun to bend pvc
skull or head of some sort---I used 2 part urethane skulls from a latex mold
black water distribution hose (i used this because I found it on clearance for $1----improvise with your own ideas here (needs to be fairly lightweight, though)
duct tape, zip ties, and other misc. fasteners
greatstuff expanding foam
black spraypaint
black pantyhose
latex
acrylic paints

Ok, now that you've got all your materials, keep up with this video and you'll be done in 3 minutes 15 seconds

( actually they took me just 3 evenings to make each spirit )

If I hadn't already entered my skull stack lights, you bet! I haven't done a cost tally, but they would have definitely made the cut.
