Creepy Alien Dissection Prop!

Introduction: Creepy Alien Dissection Prop!

For the past few years, we have done a haunted house for the kids around the neighborhood, and this year we did an alien crash site. Since this was a crash site, of course you need an alien to dissect! This instructible will show you step by step how we made ours!

Step 1: Gather Materials

This is a fairly simple project, even your kids could do! The few things you will need are:

Alien mask, feet, and gloves for a costume, found at a local drug store
2-4 bath towels, for the legs and arms
2 aluminum roasting pans
Cheap, thick hair gel
Liquid clothes soap, usually the cheaper the better
Cooked spaghetti noodles
Assorted mardi gras beads
{lastic bugs, frogs, worms, etc.
lastly, "Surgical tools" (Small hand rake, plastic ketchup bottle, tongs, etc.)

Optional: Glow in the dark spray paint to make the alien seem more spacey

Step 2: ASSEMBLE!!

Now, the first thing you want to do is cut a circle in the middle of ONE aluminum roasting pan, leaving about 1 inch if space between the cut and the edge of the pan. Put tape where you cut, so you don't hurt yourself when digging in his guts.

Next, you want to roll your towels up longways, and set them aside.

Third, you want to put a balloon in his head, and blow it up, so his head looks solid, tie the balloon and set aside.

Now, grab both roasting pans, and place the uncut one rightside up on your table. Place the other, cut one, upside down on the first pan, and tape them together, place this where your aliens torso will be. Take your towels and lay them where his arms and legs would be. if he is a short alien, you could probably just use one towel for the legs, and one for the arms if you are good with it. now, place his head above the roasting pans. (You may have to place something under his head so it doesn't roll away). Now, place his hands and feet at the ends of his arms and legs.

Finally, cut a slit in a bed sheet, and place it over the roasting pans, so it looks like the blue surgical covers they put over patients when operating.

Step 3: Feeling a Little Gutsy?

This is the last step, I promise.

Now, you are going to pour all of the thick hairgel in the roasting pan, along with a healthy amount of clothes soap, preferably clear soap. Next, you want to pour all of your cooked spaghetti noodles in the pan, along with your beads, insects, and whatever else you may want to put in there!

Step 4: ITS ALIVE!!!!

Okay, it isn't REALLY alive, but it looks pretty darn cool! Use this at your next Halloween party and it'll surely be a scream.

    I think maybe it's the wrong pic. Makes no sense to me either.
