Horror of Dracula (1958)

Sep 20, 13 Horror of Dracula (1958)

Posted by in Hammer

This enjoyable diorama depicts Christopher Lee (“Dracu-Lee”) in his signature role of Count Dracula in the 1958 Hammer Production, Horror of Dracula. The inside of the cape in the kit I received was a bit rough but careful sanding took care of most of the problem. Though not visible from the front the back of the base...

House of Dracula (1945)

Aug 31, 13 House of Dracula (1945)

Posted by in Universal

Actor John Carradine is under-represented in the dimensional art world which is why this piece by Jeff Yagher is so welcomed. We can thank the kind folks at X-O Facto for this version. In disguise as “Baron Latos” from the film, House of Dracula, Carradine is playing Count Dracula and this piece captures him in all his...

Black Sunday (1960)

Aug 14, 13 Black Sunday (1960)

Posted by in Rare & Unusual

This diorama included three head options for the girl. To keep everything in place for the diorama I included all three heads and mounted the two extra to each side. It seems only fitting that the pierced face be used on the figure. The rest of the piece was a straightforward build with no particular problems. Due to the thinness...

Posted by in Rare & Unusual

This is a black & white film and though tempting to paint the piece a monotone gray to simulate the B&W look I decided to paint the diorama in color. Noticing the tones and hues of Price’s clothes they all appear to be earth-toned browns. For the mirror I cut pieces of reflective mylar to fit within the frame. From...

The head to the Iron Giant bust was clear cast. The eye areas were masked off and the rest of the head painted. After drying the masks were removed thereby preserving the clear eye sockets. Inside the head was inserted a small piece of reflective mylar. Over this were inserted two green LED lights, one for each eye. Coin batteries...

This version of the sonambulist, Cesare, was done by the artist, Barsom (this is copy #10 out of 50 made). The cabinet opens revealing the figure of Cesare ready to do his master’s bidding. All in all a straightforward build with no particular complications.” From Wikipedia: The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari (German: Das...
