I got this "Evil Dead Witch" lifecast from Haunted Studios - they say that it is a "life mask of actual prop head used in the original Evil Dead film". Since getting it, I've done more research and I'm not so sure about their claim - haven't see or read any evidence of a prop head used in the movie. It's probably a cast of an original head that Chris Kuneman did for the movie to show the original makeup design (and should have shoulders as well as a fully rounded head).

Raw resin, hollow cast half head, no ears, as it arrived:



I used the same method as I did with my Ash lifecast to alter it into a full head bust (carved floral foam covered with ModRoc plaster bandages), but didn't add ears this time as I figured they would be hidden by the long hair anyway.

And here's the finished bust, painted up with wig attached (no glass eyes this time - painted them):

WoW that is sweet! Great job.
I've seen a few cheryl's and most are pretty bad. A friend of mine bought a bad one and had it re-done by an artist and it cost a small fortune.
This one is just as nice.
The red around the eyes sets it off. Well done sir.

Pretty cool looking piece. I've not worked with floral foam before, but what tools did you use to carve it into the desired shape?

Thanks guys.

Floral foam is REALLY soft and crumbly so it's very easy to shape. I just use a small, sharp kitchen knife. Once in the desired shape it's necessary to protect it (as you can permanently dent it just by pushing your finger into the stuff), so I could it using plaster-impregnated bandages.
