Wife said I had to post that! Couldn't figure out a good setting for the different pieces LOL, so went low on most. Cape was a bear. I have no idea what it was even made of -- no tag.

OG that finished Lugosi Drac looks fantastic.  I really appreciate the step by step pics.  A great job!

Hey TZ - Local Grocery store has it every year. Albertsons Chain!

Preciate that. I'll be on the look out for it.

OG- When I saw your fist pic I was worried, but he turned out great! I was in Times Square the other day and took a pic with Drac out front of Madame Tussaud's. I think yours looks better than theirs!




No KIDDING.  Lugosi didn't even WEAR glasses!

I bought it from the sculptor, who made resin casts. Dan Thompson was selling these Spring/Summer 2010. I just never got around to painting it until this year. I don't know if he's still doing resin casts of this sculpt, but I think he is a member here, so you can send him a PM. Please review this stream beforehand, as someone has had a little difficulty with their recent purchase effort.

   Dan Thompson is a thief, please review the tail end of this thread below. He took on orders with full payment and never delivered. Buyer beware on this guy. A complete fraud. I am surprised that his account here on the UMA was not suspended at this point.

Greetings my Fiends,

I have been away oh so long, and i am pleased at the disarray in which you've kept my Opera House!

My Bela Dracula bust was the victim of not a stake, but that of our dog Krypto, who took him out in attempt at flight. The resin bust smashed beyond repair, and I am looking for a new blank. I see that the original creator of the sculpt/ resin caste has become "Persona Non-gratas" , and he has also not returned my emails so looking for referrals for a new one. I'm not crazy about the BlackHeart sculpt, so looking beyond this for now.

Please let me know any recommendations, or a note to say "hi".....email too is the fasted way to reach me these days.

I remainder your humble servant....
