This prop was made as a birthday gift for a friend of ours who is a big fan of Halloween and an even bigger fan of "Nightmare before Christmas". He sets up a kid-friendly haunt in his garage every year, so this will be a perfect non-scary addition to his Halloween collection.

With our usual ideal division of labor :))), Spooky1 did the manly part of putting together the motorized mechanism and tombstone, and I did the not-so-manly papier mache work and Oogie Boogie painting.

Wow, I wish I could make something like that .... oh wait I did. :D :googly:

It was lots fun to give this to a friend who will really enjoy it. Everyone at the party loved it.

Looks great. My last name is Skelton. Not quite Skellington, but Scareme Skelton would make a good tombstone too. (hint, hint)

Thanks, guys, for all the kind comments. This is the first time we've done anything of this scale as a gift, and it was well worth the effort when we saw how delighted our friend was - and his kids, too:).

Oooo...nice work guys! Got any pics/vids of the back?
You know, I never thought of doing that. The set up is typical of a head popper - I think Spooky1 used the tutorial that Dave the Dead wrote up - so we didn't do the usual photodocumentation we do for props. I'll see if our buddy can take a few shots and send them to me for posting.

Great job! I really like this a lot. I haven't had time to get to a popper yet, but I think you've made this something I can't do without, lol. This is really cool - I really like the uniqueness of using Jack in a prop like this.
