I few years ago, I created a monster for Christmas.

I had no intent to do so, I actually just wanted to create a Santa Claus figure to put up in front of my house in December as a unique Christmas decoration. My attempt failed in my opinion, and the creature that I created somewhat resembles Santa Claus has yet to be put outside for either Christmas or Halloween...

Step 1: Get Inspired...

One December a few years ago, I was driving through Mount Dora, Florida looking at the nice Christmas decorations that the city puts up all over. As I was leaving, I passed by a house with a tall, but rather skinny Santa Claus figure on their front lawn. I rode by the house rather quickly, so I didn't get much time to study the prop or take a picture, but I knew I liked it. A few days later, I started constructing my own giant Santa prop of my own.

The prop I built is documented in this Instructable. A few years later, I was in Mount Dora once again around Christmas and happened to come across the prop that inspired me. This time I snapped a picture. It turned out that the Santa that I had built was a bit different from my inspiration...
Thanks for the laugh ?
Actually, I think having Santa's face melt off in the rain would pretty much be the perfect finishing touch for a decoration that neighborhood kids would remember for the rest of their lives...
Twas the night before Christmas and all through the house not a creature was stirring not even a mouse, the stockings were hung by the chimney with care. It was all soo perfect untill santas zombie doppleganger came with an assault rifle to rid the world of Christmas. There is my twisted version of "The Night before Christmas" Really, your project is cool!
That guy doesn't look like the assault rifle type, more like beat you with your severed arm type.
lol. That's a really good one
u should put a speaker in it to say "im gonna skin u alive with a cheese grater" or "im gonna cut u up into little bits and feed u to my reindeer"
he has a turban lol. enforcing the bin ladin look
He seems like something I would shoot at on call of duty 5. haha, but nice job. Really cool looking.
Yup, it does look a bit like Good Old Zombie Santa. I say put him outside to amuse, puzzle and disturb your neighbours. If you feel a need to give his face a protective coat of paint, may I suggest a very pale green tint. Zombie Santa, Zombie Santa!!! Aarghh, Aarghh, Aarghh!!!
I like "santa bin laden"
nightmare before christmas...lol
I like it... it looks like a cross between bin laden and santa claus... bin laden claus... dressed in that red tight suit that britney spears wore in that mars video she had...
He's definitely creepy. Maybe some glowing <a rel="nofollow" href="https://www.instructables.com/id/LED-Throwies/">LED throwie</a> eyes?<br/>
