'08 Halloween #15: The Hand of Capt. Hook
I haven't gone all out on the inside decorating in years but with niece Devin's Halloween party at our house, it inspires me too. I'm adding a "Museum of Oddities" to the dining room. I thought it be dark fun if some of the items were references to stories they know like Peter Pan.
What if someone caught that Crocodile and found his hand?
The hand is one of those joke arms you hang from your car trunk. It's been in my stash for years. I got rid of the cheap shirt sleeve stuffed with batting. I added a few washes of red and brown paint, also lightening the nails as well. The stump is stuffed with a paper towel ball and coated with blobs of hot glue, after cutting a jagged "bitten off" edge of course. The protruding bones are just two bits of a regular sized and a mini hot glue stick. I hallowed out the ends.
Painting on a tattoo and adding a toy ring gave it some pirate flair...
