    Crazy question for the Tech centre!

    I was just wondering if anyone could give any good instructions on building the paper mache/popsicle stick house from A Nightmare on Elm Street 3? Thanks in advanced if you can help out, and if you want to keep it to yourself... to you lol

    Cheers, people

    If I knew how to make one easily I'd share the info with you, but I've never made one of those before.

    Thanks, Freddysnightmare! I'm in the same boat, man. I'd love to make one, I just need some starting pointers. Ya know? And once I get it, I'll be more than willing to share will my brothers and sisters of the Gloved One.

    Cheers,

    it really really depends on what popsicle house you are going for. and also how accurate you would like it to be and then i am talking about the "extreme details".
    i mean: the house from the opening scene or the one from the end scene.
    ,because both houses are very very different from eachother!!! i made the one from the opening scene complete
    (it really took me 3 months to make it as accurate as possible with all the exctreme little details that imo most people don't even pay attention on or care for during the building proces, because it is to much time consuming to really get it right, i made it as accurate as i could, except for the doorknob, i just added that for fun)
    in the past i also build the exact popsicle house from the end scene, but i never completed that build. it was to much time consuming. i have only spend 2 weeks on it and then stopped with it. i never completed it, but it did have already a lot of details.
    ,both houses i don't have anymore in my collection, i threw them away sometime ago, because of roomspace and it was also just collecting dust. i do regret throwing them away, but it is behind me now. it is in the past.

    ,but i still have photos of my beginning scene house and the end scene house from all sides views. if you want i can post the photos that i still have.

    i build the houses from as many screencaps and reference as i have, that is why the build of the opening scene house took me 3 months to complete, because of all the little details, i even replicated all the spots on the white paint of the popsicle sticks and all the grey/black pattern spots on the newspaper sections on the left and right side of the house.

    if you want me to post photos just let me know.

    You’re welcome Billy.

    Okay here you go:



    This was my replica from the begin scene, (of which i personally still think is not to much screen accurate enough) ,but that is my personal opinion, because there are always things that can be improved, but it looks nice:











    and this was my replica WIP from the end scene:
