Re: THE FOG (1980) dio (with a bit of help from Captain Jack Sparrow)

I like John Carpenter`s movie THE FOG. I like it because it plays like an old fashioned ghost story along with a brooding atmosphere and a decent story. Its also got pirate ghosts. What`s not to like?. I don`t like the 2005 remake. I don`t like it because its full of CGI, no atmosphere and relies on telegraphed `shocks` which my Yorkshire terrier can see coming. 

With that out the way I`m gonna try a Fog dio with a `borrowed` (ahem) Captain Jack figure from the lad`s toy box. I`ll replace the head with a plastic Halloween skull and try and fit some red led`s as the movie. 

I`ve got the base on the go and from then on I`ll just have to see what happens.

Yaar, me hearties! Some progress despite being dragged out christmas shopping. Blistered the base with hairdryer to get a worn/old wood look and have started work on the main pirate figure. Obviously no skull/head yet but I`m workin` on it! See ye` later scurvy dogs!!!!

Skull in place with red LED following much faffing about. Hair next (to make it look less T2 and more undead pirate) and some general weathering to the figure.

Coming together nicely.  How did you do the lettering in the base?


Must confess that if I have ever seen the film I`ve forgotten all about it....

Almost done, so a quick night shot. LED`s in place. Base was very difficult to do with chipping out wording Alun! more detailed shots to follow.

Spooky!


Amazing job on the base then!  Thought it must have been done in an engraving shop or something like that.

Came out pretty well- had some experience doing it before Alun- but still awkward. Here`s some final shots.
