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.

I think you've done a great job - at first I thought the same as Fontgeek about the fog which at times did get a little thick around her face but as you say - outside there would be more airflow and move it away. I think she looks awesome as she is - and you can always add to the prop with additional witches in the coming years. Well done!
