Scary Statue!


Introduction: Scary Statue!

Well I did this with my folks last halloween and it managed to scare 4 to 6 year olds from coming to our house. We're gonna improve it this year with leds but here I go.

Step 1: Materials

Materials neeeded for this project:
Chicken wire
An old grim reaper costume
A scary mask of some sort
Paper Mache (flour, water, and newspaper)
A friend
Something to cut the chicken wire.

How to make paper mache:
Mix water and flour in bowl then rip up some newspper and dip it in.
Voila paper mache.

Step 2: Making the Body

Get your friend to lie down for you. Then you wrap the chicken wire around his body. Then get him out of there and paper mache the body so then you'll have a paper mache body. Wait for it to dry.

To get your friend out just take apart the back of the chicken wire where it meets. Let him out and and put the back together again.

Step 3: Adding Costumes and Variations.

Ok so this is the final step.add the costume home made or store bought. Add mask preferably storebought. Then add some good ol' hands to this I got mine from and old halloween ornament.

    This is pretty obvious. It's not even a real instructable because your leaving out how to get hom out of the chicken wire and how to make the paper mache.

    I second that... and another proof for my theory that everybody who writes something in ALL CAPS is not worth enough a second to get read.

    "To get your friend out just take apart the back of the chicken wire where it meets. Let him out and and put the back together again."

    Does this not count? 

    also my friend wants me to put a freddy krueger costume on the statue

    this year im going to build this instructable but a few changes 1. im going to put leatherface costume on it 2.put a speaker and hook up a microphone to it 3. put red and blue LED in the masks eye holes

    This reminds me of a day I was in a Halloween store when I was twelve and there was this guy in a Michael Meyers costume, which I thought was a statue. When he put his hand on my shoulders he scared me shitless. I almsot pissed my pants too.

    ha, last year some guy did that for Halloween and I think I gave him a concussion from punching him so hard.

    i am doing one out of wood that i did last year and i scared some high school kids soooo badly it was the best thing i stood real still next to the statu and people thought i was fake then i would run after them... but i couldn't figure out how to "fill out" my satue

    pu some red leds in the eye spots :P

    My brother is so funny he is scared of every thing I could put this bed and he would not go inside the house a night for several weeks!!

    Umm I can't get pictures of the building cause I made this a year ago. But i might make a new one this year or something else.

    I don't suppose you could add a picture or two of making the chicken wire frame. otherwise, I think that this could be a great decoration if you light it with a strobe light.

    Ok i changed some stuff. But what do you mean by "leaving out how to get hom out of chicken wire"

    You never said how to get out of the chicken wire. I don't know how I got the word "hom" in there. . .
