The Mummy
A vintage classic given the Horrify Me touch

The Mummy

The Mummy. Simple, right? Just get a model, wrap 'em in bandages, job done. Right? Wrong! I knew I wouldn't be happy with a basic bandage wrap-up job. Bandages look like products of modern medicine, not ancient fabrics. Bandages just are what they are. Fine for fancy dress, but useless for crafting something ancient, cursed, and terrifying.

I wanted my Mummy to look ancient and scary, and I wanted the wraps to invoke a sense of age and decay which meant using filthy old white rags torn to strips, after they had been made as disgusting as possible. It meant attaching a fake rib cage, and performing an extensive makeup on the model's face to show rot and decay. It was fun, it was creative, it was pretty awesome. But it was anything but a simple job.

The model, Jo, was great. She tolerated what was an uncomfortable "costume" (if you can call it that) and performed some great poses. It wasn't the easiest thing to wear and around the back, out of sight, there was a lot of clips, staples, and sticky tape holding various parts together. But we won't talk too much about that - just enjoy the stuff at the front!
