So.. we got one of those michaels coffin jobbers with a 50% cupon... they're neat, but needed something more... enter the blucky. I cut, painted, stained and added some more flexable joints and some rigid ones and covered up the back of the coffin with black fabric, added a 25w red light bulb, used a sharpie marker and a little fishing line. the weight of the blucky is hung on the center cross-bar using some coat hangars to hook his hips onto it.

Excellent idea! Before I steal it, um, I mean, coincidentally come up with the exact same idea, does that coffin seem like it would stand up to weather? I still need some more outside props.

Nick - great modification on a store-bought prop! Looks really eerie in the night shot, where you can make out the skelly thru the coffin lid. Nice work.

BTW, the links in your signature are garbled... like this.... http://"http//
thanks for letting me know... fixed it.

it is supposed to be indoor/outdoor... I'd be worried about the metal frame rusting, mine had some rust on it out of the box. The fabric seems okay, but I don't know how UV resistant it is. I wouldn't leave it out for more than a week myself...
