In tribute to Blaine Gibson's work on Disneyland's Haunted Mansion attraction, I recently went through a process of sculpturally restoring a very sad looking casting of the Hatbox Ghost, which I believe to be descended from the original molds. Here he is all finished and painted.
If you're interested in an in-depth look at how and why I brought it from here to there, including an appreciation of the original work, head on over to my blog (it's a three-parter, and a bit long to repost the whole thing, but I think you all will enjoy skimming though it).
Started with this clay pour (see the photo of the original in the background):
And brought back all the detail seen in the original photos:
Apologies if this seems recast-y. It's really just meant as a personal project to honor the original sculpture.
