    Looking for Phantasm spheres!

    Hey, all!

    I'm trying to find out which prop-makers out there are currently making copies of everyone's favorite flying murder balls. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

    Thanks!

    Question about Parts 3 and 4 make-up...

    Hey, all! I'm working on something (which I can't wait to show you guys), and I wanted to confirm before I got too far into the project. Parts 3 and 4 used the same molds for the make-up, didn't...

    I getcha. I guess I'm just fascinated by the specifics, and the best way to learn is to turn to the community. For instance, I'd like to be able to judge for myself the accuracy of the different...

    That's more likely, yeah. Careful preservation of a prop like that is more the exception than the rule, especially with a low-budget indie horror film.

    Another interesting thought... Surely a duplicate of the hero glove as it looks today isn't actually screen-accurate? It must have sustained a fair amount of additional damage over the last thirty...

    That's what I keep thinking. When it comes to this kind of thing - subtle bends, staining, weathering, and so on - to make something literally identical is impossible. I guess everyone has to...

    Ahhh, so a template glove refers to one made using measurements from the hero. I'm assuming that means accurate bends as well. That answers... pretty much all my questions, actually. So let me make...
