This is a project called the Jumper. If you look around online,
or visit any professional haunt you've no doubt seen the open casket with
a corpse that either sits up or jumps completely up and out of the coffin.
On a budget we won't be coming up and out, but we're aiming at building
a sitting up corpse. We needed a coffin for him to jump out of, so we
used the spare wood from the Buried Alive
coffin and some wood I scored at the dumpster to put it together. The
finish is just a dark stain and flat black interior. The corpse is sporting
a Bucky Lid and the hands are hand-made (hehe)
of carved styrofoam and latex gloves.
