Faceless

The figure in these two phases haunted the lawyer all night; and if at any time he dozed over, it was but to see it glide more stealthily through sleeping houses, or move the more swiftly and still the more swiftly, even to dizziness, through wider labyrinths of lamplighted city, and at every street corner crush a child and leave her screaming. And still the figure had no face by which he might know it; even in his dreams, it had no face, or one that baffled him and melted before his eyes; and thus it was that there sprang up and grew apace in the lawyer's mind a singularly strong, almost an inordinate, curiosity to behold the features of the real Mr. Hyde.

Blank Slate. You can impose any face you want to see upon it. I see an evil grin like the Grinch, smiling at the next occupant of the graveyard with a wide-toothed salesman-like slick smile and knowing eyes--just before he digs your grave.

I LOVE faceless props. I've been wanting to make one (or many) for a long time now.
