Intro: Sword and Shield Bearers
These were the highlight of my Haunted House last year. I truly enjoyed building them. I included a little bit of the behind the scenes of how I made them. Enjoy.
They are made from pvc, styrofoam heads, pool noodles for the upper arms, yard for the hair, a cardboard roll and paint stir sticks for the sword, blue foam for the shield, fabric for the cloaks, the feet were done using paper mache, the bases are made from mdf and wood trim and the whole thing was painted over using monster mud (joint compound and latex paint).
