Morganna Toadrotter - my version of the ScareFX witch

So this year, I decided to take the deep plunge into prop building. I had always wanted to do a static scene of the Macbeth witches for my yard - then during my research I came across the ScareFX witch project. I fell in love. I have attached some pictures and a link below to youtube video of her during a test run in my garage. I call her Morganna Toadrotter

The key improvement to my mind was use of a drum from an old dryer as the cauldron. I like the dimensions of that better than the 50 gallon drum. I thought about giving it more of a round shape but that would have been a lot more work so I decided it was effective enough as is.

Instead of paying an outrageous amount for store bought witch hands, I created my own using the latex rubber and cotton balls technique, and created a mound of simulated coals using Great Stuff.

The audio in the video is poor and the green glow from inside the cauldron is washed out by the garage light, but the fog effect is still impressive (at least to me).

Any thoughts or feedback would be much appreciated.

:jol:Murpup, I think she is fantastic as is. She is a stand alone prop and can do that just fine all on her own. You did a great job constructing her and I love that you showed her PVC frame, I love the hunched over effect that you achieved. Very cool. Did you sculpt her hands? I am very impressed I think she rocks that cauldron like a pro (and great job on that, you made that thing look incredible!). Great job altogether, she is stellar!:D
