1-2-3 EZ Creep

I haven't been around in a while, so when I came across some pictures of a simple prop I threw together last Halloween, I thought I'd come post.

Since moving to a new house, I have a lot more driveway than yard...I needed some static props to take up walking space. I came up with what I'll call - the EZ Creep.

You will need:
1. One step stool (preferably with paint shelf)
2. One foam skull (arms and hands optional)
3. One scrap board
4. One cardboard box
5. Scrap cloth or landscaping fabric

Step One
Get your ladder. Make sure you won't need it until after Halloween.

Step Two
Attach the skull (and arms if you're using them) to the scrap board and set it on the paint shelf of the ladder. Beat up your cardboard box and attach it to the board as well.

Step Three
Drape your EZ Creep with fabric. I used a stapler to attach the cloth to itself in various places and tied a rope around the "waist"

Step Four
Watch the TOTs avoid your hunched EZ Creep like it's about to jump at them. A lot of them were more scared of this thing than the moving props.

Good luck!

Wow, simple but truly spooky!
I love this guy! Quick and easy for sure, and it actually would not be that difficult to add some animation like a back-and-forth head movement if you were so inclined.
Awesome and clever!
love the Creep! Quick, easy and effective! Great Job!
Quick, easy and a stance that's perfect. I love this. Great job.
I agree, so simple and so perfect.
If you had a bigger skull you could use a taller ladder.
I like this idea.... And BoneDancer's suggestion could really be great! EZ Giant Creep!
What a clever idea!
ohh I like!
Wow - I gotta get me a stepstool. Thanks!!
Haha! That is brilliant in its simplicity and effectiveness! Great stuff here!
quick and dirty. Just the way I like it!
Sweet! I'm never going to look at a ladder the same way again.
:jol:SpookySam, you should come around more often!;) That is such a cool idea...and useful too! Wow, I love that!:D
That is great! The hunch-over gives him a lifelike effect! I can understand why the TOTs would avoid him! Very clever! And dang it...I don't have one of them kind of step ladders!
Great prop!!!!! Simple and effective.
