Like all of WalMart's props it was incredibly shitty, a half assed paint job with screws and twist ties still exposed. But I had plans that would hide all of that.
In half a day I created my Wolverine skeleton. You can't keep a good mutant down.
All you need to make your own is
- One skeleton
- 6 tongue depressors
- Krylon plastic adhesive silver spray paint
- tattered remains from a dog toy (or fake sideburns/mutton chops)
Trace your claw pattern and chop them out with scissors. Got six?
Okay, now for the not fun part. In order to anchor them, I had to cut apart the finger bones, wedge in the claw, then hot glue the whole mess together.
One hand was really giving and worked beautifully. The other fractured in half and I had to make a monster glue mess to keep it from falling apart.
If you have your claws on, we move to stage 2: spray paint time.
