Skeleton Animation

This skeleton “bucky” was purchased bare “bones.” I then used cheesecloth, latex, fiberglass and some patience to get this skeleton looking just right. I integrated the lifter mechanism and waterproof lights underwater in a 55 gallon drum custom painted to bring this creature to life. Paired with a timed solenoid release of air to bubble the water, flickering lights to add to the suspense and ultimately a rather abrupt appearance of skele, it was a hit with the visitors.
