Sweet skeletons! Just may have to borrow that idea! Are these guys halloween shop purchases? Did you just glue them into position? Waterproofing? Info on the dead guys please.

Bought these online from Buckey skeletons. unscrewd them all and then started posing them and hotgun gluing them. when it came to the hands i cut each digit to reform them to hold the spears or point etc. made the outfits outta extra thatch, and small child hula skirts from Michaels. didnt seal them as they are made outta hard plastic. They are just smaller versions of my capt jack up in the crows nest. need to get crackin as Luau is this coming Saturday !!my friends think im nutzz but i love doing this stuff !!

Those look great! Nicely lit.

I think the dude on the left should be holding up a mug of grog instead of a spear! Nice job.

Cheers!

That's one of the most creative ideas I've seen on this forum!

Very impressive, Rhummbatito55... Jack Sparrow would be right at home in your bar. And it would be a good fit in my beach town, where pirates reign supreme!




Nice lighting effects, too!

Well folks I'm sad to say that the skeletons could not stand-up to the 100+ heat we've been having lately. All of the glue holding them together has softened or melted ! I guess its back to the drawing board !! Grrrrrr

Oh no...sorry to hear about that. You may have to bolt and wire them in position. They sure looked awesome up there in the wicked lighting. Don't ya just hate it when your skeletons don't cooperate!!!


Edit...TikiTom...that is a fabulous Pirate perch!!!
