Great idea Lilly! And very inexpensive too! I love the idea of no body there, just a form!
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!
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!
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
Awesome Lilly!!!!! That is a very cool idea!!!!!!! Ya make it look so easy!! :p LOL I cant wait to see his friends!!! :devil: hehehehehe
Nice job Lilly. I love the lights glowing from inside.
Thats crazy - great job... I couldn't really figure it out from the first picture - then saw the others and go "wow"

very cool! Great Job
