HDH131-CASE a Minion

CASE-Cope And Steal Everything. The challenge for this weeks Macabre Monday.  They want us to try to CASE one of the Haunted Design House Minions(are you freakin kidding me??).  Being that the Minions are AMAZING and some of us aspire to be so, they said we could at least use them as inspiration, but make sure to show which Minion you are CASEing.

I knew right away who'd I'd wanna CASE(I bet you do too).  I've been CASEing this woman for years now(more like stalking).  So you can imagine my shock and awe when I saw Creepy Glowbugg's Wretched Wednesday post.  A damn jewelry box? With cute little brain eating zombie cherubs?  You've got to be kidding me. There was no way I was coming even close to that. I had already made this decision, though, and with my newly redesigned craft room I really wanted to get back into these challenges. I almost gave up, until a quick conversation with Mr.Korpsgryndr gave me the inspiration I needed.  So...AWAY WE GO!

I started thinking of boxes I had that I could work with.  Then a light bulb popped in my head "You've got a coffin, dumbass."   This coffin was handmade for me. I have had it AT LEAST 20 years, if not longer.  It was a gift from a friend in high school, one who shared a love of the macabre with me. It's 10" long, a mini version.  I have carried this thing around with me everywhere I've moved in the last 20 years, and it's one of my favorite things being that it's one of a kind.  I've used it for many different purposes.  I decided it was time for a make over, a "facelift" if you will.

Ta daaaa!!! Check THAT out!

I took a few shots from Cannibal Corpse albums, and made my own version of a zombie box.

Used some creepy itkupilli kids for the ends.

This is the new top to my coffin.  I even threw on a couple GlowBrainz to stick the point home.  I used lots of blood gel from my trusty Hallowe'en kit for a more viscous look.  Added some to the brains as well, which I love.  All in all, I think I aced it.
