The Curse Of The Mummy

Saw this prop on Grandin Road's Halloween Haven.  I wonder if this Peruvian person ever figured they'd be made into a Halloween prop.  This has to somehow result in a curse.  It HAS to.  How can it not?

The real mummy...






















The Grandin Road variety (I wonder if this is the first time a Halloween decoration has been made based on a real corpse).  It's actually a very cool product.

He will come back from the dead and demand restitution.

I made a mummy prop years ago out of a 3 ft skelley. Gave it away. :( I have a feeling in 2 thousand years I'll be sitting in a museum having unruley gradeschoolers gawking at me!

Yes! Here's my version. Don't think I can attach a picture to this comment, but it's on my blog

I was very flattered when one woman was so upset at the display of human remains that I had to break character and admit that he was paper mache.

Ann, that IS a great prop.

For some reason I can't click on links, so I have to go and search for it. Me computer illiterate.

They seem to be lacking in a lot of things, mainly originality.

I'm with Bean and Mantan - Grandin Road are assholes.

First they rob artists, now they are robbing graves. I will NEVER buy from them.
