American Were-Pup in London – Life Size Sculpture from Tom Spina Designs
We love the works of Tom Spina Designs prop and monster makers. We featured their fantastic Kong themed home cinema a while back, but their newest creation comes close to beating it’s awesomeness. The designers have created a life sized were-puppy, based on the werewolf of An American Werewolf in London.
The puppy comes complete with a London style cinema chair, paying homage to probably the most famous – and most hilarious – scene from the horror classic. It’s definitely cute, with a dash of creepy thrown in!
The silicone wolf head sculpture is hyper-real, with hand punched hair, custom translucent resin teeth and custom eyes with amazing depth. The body of the life size werewolf prop is a hand carved EPS foam piece, with silicone paws and resin claws to match the teeth.
The sculpture was commissioned by a private collector, Fernando, who said ““I cannot stress how amazing this looks… It’s basically a tangible version of the vision I first had when watching this beloved classic. “
This realistic silicone sculpture involved the creative efforts of many talented people, including: Steven Richter, Tom Spina, Michelle Nyree, Patrick Louie, and Melissa Dooley.
