Post by: tylerh on September 16, 2018, 11:37:53 PM
I have been wanting to take this on for a few years and I FINALLY started early enough to get it going!!  It's my take on the insane and oversized RETURN OF THE FLY head!

Just a teaser so far, but happy with how its going!

Wow.. Just wow! What will you do with it after Halloween, display? Seems like a shame to not have this work of art displayed all year.

Thank you!!! Iím not sure yet.  Iím not positive it will survive Halloween well but we will see. I built it very much like an old prop - quickly. :). Not all stable materials but itís the best I could do with the time I had (probably 8 hours total working time)

Iíll post some after pics and some trick or treating pics.
