Picture of trash to treasure #13 demon horse/dragon
This has been a 2 year project, it didn't take 2 years to build but it started for LAST halloween and didn't work out, there are only around 7 hours involved in this actual piece

the original idea for this project started several years ago, I had in mind something along the lines of the steads in the Harry Potter movie that pull the coach but mine would be pulling a floating "hearse". I went to my possibilium pile and pulled out some pvc pipe, some electrical cable and assorted bits and pieces then set to work building a frame. Well, the material wasn't strong enough for the size of the creature and it started to bend and warp. I shelved the project until I found different materials. ( I still like the bleach bottle "hoofs" idea)

You have the makings of a sweet Jersey Devil there, sir:

Having been born and raised in South Jersey I am very familiar with the legend of the Jersey Devil, I suppose the wings and neck sound somewhat like some descriptions of the Jersey Devil. Thank you for leaving a comment
Yeah....it looked a lot like a sketch from a late-19th or early-20th century news article I saw about the cryptid. I normally check out your food 'ibles when I want something tasty and relatively easy to make for din-din. You have yet to steer me in the wrong direction, sir. French fry tater salad....'nuff said.

Looks very nice! And I love your phrase "possibilium pile". ^_^

Thank you for leaving a comment. I heard a similar word on a tv show and adapted it to possibilum because my scrap piles are a source of endless possibilities. The dragon got a lot of attention from the kids in line for our home haunt and my granbrats love it;. Now I have to find a place to store it !
