Killer Grasshopper?

So Twisted Nightmares just had a prop contest in which you had to come up with your idea of a “Twisted Nightmare”.

Anyone that knows me, KNOWS I hate bugs, roaches and grasshoppers in particular.  So, I came up with the most twisted nightmare I could possibly conceive, without having to make a roach.  (EWWwWWW!  Roaches!!)

The Killer Grasshopper:

Papier mache and clay on a coat hanger armature.

Knife and axe blade – cardboard and tin foil with bamboo skewer handles.

Chainsaw – 1/2” foam carved to shape, popsicle stick base w/tin foil.

Lots of ways to KILL, and lots of nightmares to come.

Those extra legs really come in handy for holding weapons! It looks great! Bugs (the crunchy hard-shelled kind) rank high on my list of fears as well :)

Yep, that would definately constitute the main character in a nightmare. Have him hold a slug sandwich with heavy mayo and you have the gross factor in there as well.

Seriously...I LOVE this. And like you, I HATE grasshoppers.

Awesome. He needs to stay out all year. Actually, can you send him here around October? I'll send him back in November. Thanks ;)

Okay, grasshoppers don't scare me that much.....but that is creepy. You might have made me afraid of grasshoppers now!!! You are so evil!! :D

Did I mention I like evil?

He's terrific, how tall is he, its hard to tell? I like the color and the paint job of his body, looks like it has texture. Very cool, only thing worse would have been if he had a roach side-kick.
