FRANKENSTEIN MONSTER HALLOWEEN PARTY PROP PROJECT SUPPLY LIST
Here’s What You Need to Create a Frankenstein Party Prop
- Universal Studios Frankenstein Monster Overhead Mask.
- This latex mask is very realistic and is actually an awesome representation of the one and only Boris Karloff Frankenstein monster from back in 1931!
- The Frankenstein mask was my biggest expenditure for this project, but the realism it provided was well worth the cost.
- Long Neck Styrofoam Mannequin Head
- I already had the long neck mannequin head in the video in my home and it has a hole inside the base.
- Please be sure that the mannequin head you buy actually does have a hole in the base, as it is necessary for this party prop.
- Wire Clothes Hanger
- I used a rather flimsy wire clothes hanger, which I lived to regret. I would suggest using a stronger, sturdier wire clothes hanger to support the t-shirt and especially if you are using a coat rather than a suit jacket.
- Safety Pins
- Large and Medium size safety pins
- The safety pins were used for:
- Attaching the latex mask to the t-shirt
- Securing the coat/jacket to the t-shirt
- Securing the gloves to the coat/jacket sleeves
- Closing the pants waist to secure the stuffing
- Stuffing for the Frankenstein party prop
- I used various items that I had around my home for the stuffing such as:
- Some heavy gauge plastic bags (which I used to stuff the latex mask)
- Plastic bags full of shredded paper, other items such as bubble wrap and packing air bags to stuff Frankenstein’s clothing.
- A small piece of light weight metal pipe to be used as the “body” and to connect the mannequin head to a base for stability.
- The pipe I used was actually part of an old metal broom handle.
- I cut the metal broom handle down to 17 inches, but you can do whatever size works for your project.
- Cardboard Box
- Next, I used a rectangular cardboard box as a base to connect the mannequin head to the “body” of the party prop.
- But first I placed something heavy in the cardboard box to stabilize it and make it strong enough to hold the head and “body” of the party prop without toppling over.
- Frankenstein’s Clothing
- Men’s green colored t-shirt looks good with the Frankenstein mask
- Men’s black coat
- I used a men’s black suit jacket from Goodwill
- Black Pants
- I used an old black pair of yoga pants (I closed the bottom of the pant legs with rubber bands to secure the stuffing)
- Big black boots (I actually used a pair of old beat up work boots that I found out in our garage)
- Black gloves or whatever other way you may decide to do the hands.
- I used a pair of black work gloves I had in my home.
- Then I placed the gloves on a pair of plastic skeleton hands that were from last year’s Halloween decorations.
