Jeff (Scud the Disposable Assassin - Fwoosh Summer Swap 2016)
jeff was made using psycho sid wwe elite legs (heavily modified - extended, knees sanded down and mouth sculpted onto knees, smoothed out muscle definition, added a bare butt), a pair of generic 1/6 scale hands for the feet hands (???), an old wwf jakks pacific billy gun torso (very heavily modified), a set of arms from a jakks wwe ttl edge figure (just added magnets and sculpted cuffs), and hands from a marvel legends sasquatch (again, heavily modified).
the mouse trap hands were made by a using foam board base with apoxie sculpt shell. the hardware on the mousetraps are just floral wire and paper clips shaped and glued in place. the head is made of a super glue container (cut to size and modified) with a bendable rubber coated wire as the neck so she has a full range of neck motion. finally, the squid was made of multiple components. the body is a core of aluminum foil covered in apoxie sculpt. smaller tentacles were sculpted with procreate for added flexibility.
the 2 large tentacles are bendable and can hold their shape very well. it started by making a fake skin out of liquid latex and paper towel. i then super glued it as i rolled the skin around a wire. i did this in small sections at a time to ensure the glue was getting a good, firm hold on the core wire. once to my desired thickness i sculpted a tip on the end of both tentacles, then connected them to the body of the squid (using glue, toothpicks and apoxie sculpt). then i glued the squid to the body and secured it with apoxie sculpt. finally, i used elastic bands as the belts on the torso with a bit of sculpt for the buckle.
