Hatbox Ghost

My favorite character from the Haunted Mansion (who's not even in the Haunted Mansion) is the Hatbox Ghost.  I've been wanting to make my own for years.  I actually started this fellow back in 2007 and have been slow to figure out how I wanted to do him up.  I finally got off my arse and sculpted his head last spring and made his pants and hat.  They are made from clear shower curtain giving him that "see though" appearance.  His coat is store bought on a Halloween clearance rack.  Like the old man I used Sculpey to make the head.  He's also an animatronic.  Nothing too complex.  He head just moves from side to side, but he moves non the less and freaked some folks out on Halloween night.
