Since last year, or maybe a couple years now, I've wanted to create my own HALLOWEEN 'Michael Myers' prop to display as a decoration. And, instead of blow hundreds of dollars on the expensive store-bought animatronic one that looks all realistic and moves around and plays sound FX from the movie.....
I figured, I'd go the cheapo route and just recreate the one seen in HALLOWEEN: THE CURSE OF MICHAEL MYERS(seen here):
"Enough, of this Michael Myers.......bullSHIT!"
The store one's probably the new Rob Zombie version of Mikey anyway. This way seems a lot cooler to me for some reason.
Well, time and resources were not exactly on my side this year. I made the body and was easily able to find one of those 'expressionless' masks at the Halloween store. Finding the right kind of fake plastic butcher knife and being able to paint it, proved a little more problematic.
Here were my efforts:
Only kitchen style knife I was able to appropriate was a cheesy glow-in-the-dark one from the local 99 cent store, with a pirate-y skull thing on the handle. I was hoping to be able to paint the blade chrome silver, but alas........no time. Obviously, to complete the full-on ensemble Mike's cardboard body needed to be painted too.
It should be fully painted and completed for display by next Halloween(2012).
