Alright you tombstone makers. When will one of you tackle the project of recreating Beetlejuice's resting place?

That would be one hell of a prop!

I reckon a couple of people here could knock it out the park!

I am thinking of attempting this tomorrow, but the only thing I am worried about is the amount of time it is going to take to make. I don't want to spend hours and hours on something that could break so easily....hmmm....what to do....

I'd love that in my graveyard. Will definately attempt it some day. I'm surprised nobody has made it already, what with such a creative bunch on this forum and all.

I think I might give it a go the gargoyles can be dine by creating the frams out of wire and covering it with spray foam to carve. I leaned how to do things like this in my sculpting class and its just a matter of making the frame nice and solid.
I think I might hve to go to the local hardware store soon. :D

To anyone who outlives me, please take note... I want my tombstone to look like that. But maybe with a jack-o-lantern in the winged reaper's other hand.
