Snowman Tragedy 2010

by on Jan.06, 2010, under The Rest

Last year, when it snowed to any depth for the first time in my adult life, I made this. I don’t think I’ve topped it this year, but I had a good go. He’s a bit more clumsy, a bit less well shaped. But the spirit is there. Big props to Craig for suggesting brain matter and creating wall-based splatter effects. Oh, and coming up with the gun idea, too. I was just going to have his head caved open. Also, I’m sorry.

He had nothing to live for.

More angles here.

    Haha nice. I think you should have a new “Snow” category on this blog…

    What’s the brain matter made of? Shoe string liquorice?

    It is in fact spaghetti and pasta, cooked in water and red food colouring.

    It doesn’t have the ultrarealistic gore action of last years (was that only last year?!), but it does have a cut out gun.

    And spaghetti brains.

    lol, cute.

    I find your fascination with snow interesting. Two feet of the stuff on the ground around here. When you’re hit by lake-effect blizzards thirty times per year the stuff quickly loses its charm (you reach a point where you must haul the stuff out with loaders and trucks because there’s just SO MUCH).

    It’s still beautiful, though. And so is your snow-man-friend here. Until he blasted a chunk of his head off, that is.

    First thing I noticed was a snowman with his head caved in, and a spade sitting nearby in a pool of blood. That makes it seem even creepier.

    Epic snowman though, traumatise any nearby children for life!

    Nice! :)
    Reminds me of a cutscene in the first Resident Evil.

    You are a sick, sick man.

    My co-workers were horrified. I was so proud.
