I've finally found the courage to start with my 2011 halloween props.
I've revisited my original plan (http://www.hauntforum.com/showthread.php?t=24224) for the 16 feets jack, it will be 12 feets and the jester will remain at 6 feets.

Here the rough of Jack head and neck. I stole the 12" Dora beach ball from my niece ;) and cover it with 3 layer of plaster bandage. When all dry i removed the ball and fill the whole thing with great stuff. Insert a PVC pipe for the neck and here i am.

I think that's an excellent start. Your niece might disagree, though:D

It`s been a while, but with the newborn baby it's moved in the priority list.lol.

now that we sleep a bit more here some pics of jack's head ready to be sanded and sealed and the jester body (will be dressed so no details here
).

I need your opinion on this one, should i do some teeth to jack or not ? I saw both and still not sure.

Thanks

I'd say add teeth and those stitch lines you usually see. Here's a Jack I did a while ago that has both so you can get an idea of how they look on a similar prop:

Thanks for the nice comments, i should have pics to post soon.

Yesterday i was lucky enough to found a basketball poll in a neighbor garbage :)

The only problem is that it's only 10 feets high, so i have to revise my jack from 16 feets to 12 feets high. I think with my jack skelington at 12 feets and the jester at 6 feets should give an ok look.

After cleaning up the lovely Irene water damage (yes even here in montreal we had it pretty bad), i've finally found some time to do a bit of halloween stuff. Here's some WIP pictures of the jester .
