Circus Freak Puppeteer Mannequin Mod

Circus Freak Puppeteer Mannequin Mod

Spooky prop maker Gary aka TwistedUK made this “Circus Freak Puppeteer” from multiple model forms, PVC pipe, and a wiper motor to give the appearance of movement in the puppet. I was really impressed with his use of DAS modeling clay to build up the simple prop head into something quite sinister! Click the slideshow below to see some of the various steps of Gary’s process, which concludes with a video of the puppeteer in action.
