Mini Minions In Progress!

Hi Frightners!

So tonight I began my Mini Minion Props. What are Mini Minions you ask? Why my Mini Minions are little ghoulish creatures who will happily feast on the souls of the living if provoked however, if left alone and treated well they will happily obey their masters commands and do whatever work or order that was assigned to them. They love to feed on small animals, the deader the better..for some reason they do not like the live ones??

These little guys will be featured as part of my freak show in this years haunt. They will be hanging by small cages and under a blacklight because there eyes will be made of vaseline marbles which glow and eerie glow in blacklights.

Currently, as you can see by the pictures, I am working on the wireframe body of the first of 3 minions. The arms are in place as are the legs. Now I am going to start bulking out the body with tin foil and then will most likely cover the foil with either a combination of cotton balls and latex or possibly a mache mixture using cheese cloth...we shall see. The entire minion will eventually be cloaked anyways so not to much detail will be needed. His face is where the most attention needs to be paid.

Please feel free to leave any comments or suggestions you may have, I hope you will enjoy the process of the Minion build...I'm looking forward to them being complete!

Stay Frightful!

My son and I are about to attempt our first dead pixie. Any chance of your posting a follow-up video of how you did the rest and how he looks completed?

Thanks! Awesome site!
